Lusts and loves of this week.

There are a couple things this past week I can't get enough of. The first is the few VW commercials that feature Wilco songs. Even if I am in a different room and I hear one or two notes I know that one of these commercials are on. Of course you know i love this band. Here are a couple of their commercials I just love.

I love also this book, The Rum Diaries from the late great Hunter S. I think it was smart, funny, sad, and elegant. It had sense and class and yet a late twenties early thirties writer trying to figure out who he was and what he wanted. It is interesting what life can bring when you rely on others and choose to live a life that's single and at some times lustful. It was brillant and there were some lines that blew me away....

"I was never idle enought to do much thinking, but i felt somehow that my instincts were right....At the same time, I shared a dark suspicion that the life we were leading was a lost cause, that we were all actors, kidding ourselves along on a senseless odyssey. It was was the tension between these two poles---a restless idealism on one hand and a sense of impending doom on the other--that kept me going." (5)

I also love the cool breeze after a hot day.

I love white wine lately. It cuts the heat like an ice cube on the back of your neck.

I love random encounters and random friends.

I love random poems and random opportunities.

I love body theology and the opportunities to understand what that means.

I love these beautiful men that help me through my day to day even though they don't need to but they do because of a word and action called love:
Even though these boys are basically taken I am grateful for their friendship and support.

I miss my best friends Wendy and Erica. I miss my family but through it all I have still soft moments that breathe truth on me on a daily basis. I am still actively tired on a regular basis. I think last week and the week before wiped me dry. I need to save up and store. I love life and what it provides. Let us see what tomorrow brings.

Haha... "Basically taken"? You mean, "Gay"? Haha...

Although, I AM progressing toward being taken. Life is good.
