My dear friend Laurell started a trend on her blog awhile ago that she calls "20/20". She makes a list of 20 things she's noticed or learned recently and posts them for her readers. I liked it so much I decided I should do it here, but have failed to come up with anything quite as clever as she does. Regardless, it's been that kind of a week - lots to think about, too much to absorb, and just enough word power to come up with 20 unrelated, context-less sentences. With no further ado, here are twenty things I've been thinking about lately.
1. Sometimes the most effective way to love your neighbor is to keep your mouth shut.
6. In 32 days, I will be in the same room as Marcus Mumford. Tomorrow, it will be 31.
7. I have recently taken up two pen-pal friendships...with two existing good friends. One lives five minutes from my house, and the other lives across the country. That doesn't change the feeling I get when a handwritten letter arrives on my doorstep.
20. I know the expiry date is there as a mere precaution, but I can't seem to shake the feeling that it is actually a death sentence.
