Moses Suposes His Toses Are Roses...

...i sit, waiting for the next class to begin.
...please, go check out andy's band. they're quite enjoyable.

...does anyone ever have those moments when they wish they could somehow detach themselves from the situation and just kind of observe it without having to react to it? that was saturday night for me. i think it would have been much more interesting to observe a high school youth group valentine's day party. it would have been slightly amusing. regardless, i wore a "heart of the ocean" necklace from titanic (no, not the real thing. come on.) and made plenty of toasts "la'chiam." and held the glasses high. cheers, mates.

i read this today and thought it could benefit someone else's day besides my own:

"Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark valley of a meaningless and empty life...it strikes us when, year after year, the longed-for perfection does not appear, when the old compulsions reign within us as they have for decades, when despair destroys all joy and courage...that's when we experience grace." -The Ragamuffin Gospel.
