a little something

some of you may have already seen the following article.
its been floating all around the 'net.
if you haven't yet, read it.

its a little long, but i think its pretty amazing.
and really, we all {including myself} could use the message.

heres to the ones.

theres something enchanting to me about traveling.
i can't tell you how often i dream of the places i want to go-- ancient, sophisticated, colorful, and wild places on every side of the globe.

but as much as i long to visit, and even live in, other countries, there will never be any i love more than that which i currently inhabit.
"i'm proud to be an american" came on the radio as i was driving today, and i'm not at all embarrassed to say i blasted it and sung my little heart out.
america is special,
and so are the people who work and fight every day to keep it safe.
to them: thank you, thank you, thank you.
we cannot thank you enough.

happy veterans day.

just finished.

i had almost forgotten what it's like to read a good book.

i mean, a really good book:
the kind that allows you to become lost in another world and the hours to slip quietly away;
the kind that makes you sit with knees curled to chest and mind fully focused;
the kind that has a meaning beyond entertainment and forces thought after its closed;
the kind which you will come back to, over and over.

i've missed it.

also: if you know of any books which match this description, please text/email/message/comment immediately. thanks.
