Well it’s time for a new update. I’m pretty much going by the name of “Will” now, but I still like it when my friends call me Brian too, so there’s no need to worry about which name I prefer.
Work today was grand and I accomplished a lot. You know that feeling when there was a ton of tiny things to do and they just never got done because the big stuff kept getting in the way? Well today I have overcome… and did all the tiny stuff too. Now Hannah and I get to hang out on our last night together before going to the trail again.
I’ve been gathering all the poetry I’ve written into one folder and pretty soon I’m going to start making them available on my website. My future “organization” plans are to go through all my stuff and give away everything I don’t use anymore. I remember in the scriptures it says that when we get a new coat we are to give our old one to the poor. I’ve been holding on to a lot of old stuff to SELL one day, but now it makes sense for me to GIVE it away. I think a local Salvation Army store could use my old stuff. With the Bible backing up my new resolution, I feel pretty confident I’ll be a non-packrat in no time!
Otherwise I’m doing pretty well and I want to go rock climbing this weekend since it’s been SO LONG! (I had an injured foot).
My weekend at the Beach was short and sweet. We went to TJ and Coronado Beach on Saturday, beach again on Sunday and drove home that night. Oh yeah, and we were chased by Border Patrol! We hopped a fence to climb the sand dunes off the freeway and needless to say when they got to where we were everything was fine cuz we were US Citizens and not Mexicans. They were actually quite friendly. Dylan wrote a thoughtful poem about a pepper tree down the street from where we stayed (he had a book where he wrote lots of poems). I was inspired because I like writing poetry and hearing his poem made me think about all those times I wanted to write a poem. Well I better be off… but here are some pics…
