the more you see
the less you know.
the less you find out as you go.
i knew much more then, than i do now.
i sat in a class today, one that i sat in precisely two years ago.
theology, culture, and u2.
one of the first classes that allowed me to realize the beautiful complexity and connectedness and enigma and challenge of the world around us… and gently asked me to take ownership and embrace of my small piece of the world that i have been given.
i am certainly not the same girl who first sat in that class two years ago.
i realize how different i am from that timid, unsure, apologetic girl.
i have learned, i am learning, to embrace my small piece of the world… i am learning to refrain from apologizing when my piece does not seem to fit flush with others’… i am learning to balance discontent in the big things and content in the small things… i am learning to look ugly in a photgraph.
oh, you look so beautiful tonight.
thank you for being my friends in the journey.
