It's so strange how things work. Last year I was so pist when I got my knee surgery because I couldn't do anything, but now this is the best summer of my life. Lara said last year that if something bad happens, good things will come from it. Now I'm running varsity cross country, I went to see the U.S. soccer team play in the World Cup, I went to Korea for a month, and I sat next to Michael Chang in church this morning!!
i had almost forgotten about the michael chang encounter. that very afternoon he was playing against stefan edberg in the finals of the ATP tennis tournament not 15 miles away! i was excited for sooo long after that! and yes, i went to church for a couple years there...
anyway, it feels great to simplify my belongings. "keep it light enough to travel," as the be good tanyas say. its strange to be in the graduate school denouement phase of my life. its exciting and nerveracking to prepare for the next portions of my professional and personal life.
you pass thru places and places pass thru you, but you carry them with you on the soles of your travelin shoes.
the littlest birds, by the be good tanyas:
happy first day of summer!
