There is an ever-present dialogue that takes place in all creatures that use language. For healthy, well-adjusted people that dialogue is filled with positive statements about themselves, the people around them and the universe they live in. For others, this internal conversation is filled with negativity. They don't trust themselves, their feelings, other people or life. For these people, life is a daily dose of misery and drudgery. Many of your fellow humans, most notably those in: mental hospitals; prisons; reform schools; and menial, boring, life draining jobs, have internal dialogues that are literally bankrupt of the possibility that is each human being.

Well, hello, hello, old dear friend, I have not touched your words in a while. I have neglected you and I am sorry for that. Unfortunately it is harder to do as much as I once could without the previleges of ethernet and now on dial-up. The vibe of the day is good music. From Radiohead to other random stuff. I have so much to tell you and yet only a little time to type. I will be in touch soon enough. Check out this, its good.
Quotations to inspire and challenge Ann RichardsAnn Richards on How to Be a
1. You have to believe that the nation's current 8-year prosperity was due to
the work of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, but yesterday's gasoline prices
are all Clinton's fault.
2. You have to believe that those privileged from birth achieve success all
on their own.
3. You have to be against all government programs, but expect Social Security
checks on time.

with lung cancer and overweight individuals with heart disease don't deserve
5. You have to appreciate the power rush that comes with sporting a gun.
6. You have to believe...everything Rush Limbaugh says.
7. You have to believe that the agricultural, restaurant, housing and hotel
survive without immigrant labor.
8. You have to believe God hates homosexuality, but loves the death penalty.

doesn't diminish your opportunities, but you still won't vote for Alan Keyes.
10. You have to believe that pollution is OK as long as it makes a profit.
11. You have to believe in prayer in schools, as long as you don't pray to
Allah or Buddha.

15. You have to be against government interference in business, until your
oil company, corporation or Savings and Loan is about to go broke and you beg
for a government bail out.
16. You love Jesus and Jesus loves you and, by the way, Jesus shares your

I guess that last post may be taken kinda morbidly, however my personal intensions were not morbid at all. Just descriptions to match up with life events. Sonic Youth is the tone, I have to go now and email some friends. Peace...

American Football is the tone setting album for the day. Living in a place that breaths a harsh tone and not a calming sense of tranquility bears weight on my back. Clothes need to be washed and dryed, lists of objectives fill my blank pages, lets just see what happens when...., calling your name out into oblivion and past, honestly I can't remember your face when I cease to hear your voice calling my name, quiet speculation of the past and beyond I lay hear calling your name and scribbling down past experiences that plague the bitterness of my mind, I claim to know who I am and where I've been but I sit here in the present waiting and resting on a place that I can call my own, waiting to hear your voice next to my ear with little rain drops of peace and harmony, this is when my bitterness and calm restlessness will end without quarl, my environment is a part of the daily routines, hopes and dreams of my future, to operate from an ideal point of view will only dilute and dilude my own sense of ideal communication, circles should not end but should push forward beyond the peace of being complete, calming surprise of yet another day in which I find a calming relaxation that one day burdens and bitter voices will become a distant experience.

Wow, I sure haven't written in awhile!! To sum up the rest of the trip (mainly Italy) it was awesome. Italy is a beautiful country. We rented a car and drove down the coast--Pompei--Sarento---Salareno. We saw Mt.Vasvious, drove up the volcano but didn't get to go in it. New Years Eve was fun in Rome, minus Martin getting his wallet stolen. It was crazy. Saw the colesium, vatican city, sistine chaple, the old city that Mt.V covered 1000's of years ago. The oldest ruin we saw in rome was dated at 400 B.C. WOW, I was in complete awe of something that old. I got sick right before we left Italy and the plane poped my eardrums out. We waited in the airport in Frankfurt for 3 days until we finally got 2 seats in First Class. That was fun, we were treated like rolalty, I had rack of lamb for lunch. The stewardess gave us a bottle of champange because we were the nicest first class people she had ever served. She was so nice, she even gave me her only ear plugs. She had to go into her suit case to get them. What a nice lady. We finally got back and I had to goto a workshop for SDA 101 instructors. School is in its 3rd week already. Oh my God I need to start my thesis!! It's Missy and I's five year anniversay, I'm just waiting for her right now, I got us a hotel room and put roses all over the room with hersey's kisses, oh did I mention the hot tub? Well Josh's bands playing tonight, that's going to be exciting. It should be packed!! Well, I hope Missy gets here soon. Oh ya the new Sonic Youth album is awesome!! Check ya later homeslice blog.

Well I need to updat this as soon as possible since Paris. Well, Paris is not as great as I thought it would be...I mean it was awesome dont get me wrong but it didnt live up to my expectations. Im not sure how big those expectations were but anyway. I take that back I saw some really beautiful places there, it didnt live upto expectations in terms of it being a really romantic city. I think Rome, Italy is more romantic than Paris. So we went to Sacracur which is an awesome church on top of a tall hill that overlooks Paris. The church itself was amazing, I just sat inside and took it all in. I could have sat there for another hour. Then it was on to see the artists in monmarte square. Oh and then onto Notre Dame, another amazing church and then onto dinner. Not the best christmas dinner but it was better than the chinaese that we had earlier in the day. The walk through the Louve at night was the most surreal experience I had in Europe. There was a classical guitarists playing music in the entry way to the center and the acustics sounded awesome and he was really good. We sat and listened for around a half hour to an hour. Then I dropped five euros in his case and said grazie (thank you). The Louve was alright ya know the mona lisa and stuff. Im sorry Im not too much into that periods art I am definitely more of a Van Googh/Salvador Dali kind of guy. The effiel tower was in there somewhere too.
Well then it was onto....Oh wait Megan and Dana have finished dinner and it is time to eat. Last night in Rome, Italy and then it is back home with us. The airport is not going to be fun. Over 24 hours in the airport, not fun. Grazie, Prego, sie
