How amazing is my church, and even more fascinating is the God who led me there so many years ago.  I don’t deserve my “new” job or my cool new neighbors, and I’m thankful for all my fun, encouraging and quirky friends.  I enjoy spending most of my time in a couple of the coolest neighborhoods in Houston, and I can’t say enough about the people that I get to hang with.  There’s so much blessing in my life that I can scarcely take it all in. 

Here comes tomorrow…

Hither come Andrew the Twin and Marian the Bulgarian ‘fore the light fades from Houston’s horizon.  And on the ‘morrow Ryan the Warrior shall follow and join us…

I yearn to do something for more than a paycheck or just because I’m supposed to be doing something

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood,
divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the
vast and endless sea.

I’m not really back on xanga, at least not officially.  I think it’s bad for my health. 

So my parents didn’t come into Houston yesterday.  Delta recently started offering flights directly from New York to Accra, Ghana, and when the plane was about 2 hours out of New York, it had to turn back because of mechanical problems, so there was no plane on which they could flight out of Ghana.  In a few hours I’ll be taking them to my grandparents’ house about 80 miles south of Houston. 

Yesterday I emailed my Brazilian manager where I worked until I left last summer.  When I called him this morning, he was his usual upbeat self, and he sounded pretty positive about my prospects for getting onto a project over there.  Sometimes I really appreciated many of the aspects of building software, and sometimes things were just a little slow or the business topics involved were not as engaging.  I know the chances of me once again enjoying 10-to-4 days are slim, but that’s ok.  I’d rather be working and fascinated than just itching to get out of there the whole time.  But I also have no desire to give 60-hour weeks away, either.  All of us are already too busy, and as Dan recently pointed out, we Generation Yers prefer a balance in our lives and want to spend our time on something meaningful. 

My real reason for making the phone call to him is that no casting agent has picked me up the way Edward Furlong got his start.  You think I’m kidding.  It could still happen while I’m working downtown!
