Song mood: I Hope You Dance by Lee Ann Womack. Because sometimes in life, you have to take a chance. Take a chance on true love. And with that introduction, I announce that I will be going to Australia. I will tell my mum tomorrow. I will tell my cousins tomorrow. And if anyone asks why, it’s because I want to dance.
Because this is a major trip, maybe the biggest trip of my life, I am a bundle of nerves. And will probably be a bundle of nerves until I board the final plane leaving there.
So far, I’ve told my favorite uncle. He told me of the time he was in Sydney. He went there during the our summer and said it will be cool but not cold. Big relief there.
In the meantime, I will do everything I can to save money. I booked the flights on my credit card and will try to pay off the credit card as soon as possible. While building up my savings. Costco is really helping me on this.
What I have come to realize is that I have a most unique life. And my significant other is a most unique person. I put my trust in her.
I’m trying to figure out what my birthday book will be. So I am looking at horror books between 100 to 125 pages long. Because I’m not sure what my days will be like on my birthday and there after.
I’ve been watching Father Brown. The thing with the current series is, that it gives me the feeling of Winnie the Pooh. That all of the characters are like the A.A, Milne books. And that is a testament to A.A. Milne. For being able to discribe the human character to a tea. And if I dare say, most of the modern English writers have been trying to emulate this. The actual Father Brown mysteries were a bit different. Chesterton came before Milne. The 1974 series of Father Brown was closer to the short stories, but the current series is true to the character of Father Brown and Hercule Flambeau.
I feel inspired to live and I feel inspired to love.
I’m worried about my mum.
I think something bigger than my self is on the horizon.
Everything has changed. And the everything around me is changed to follow the progress of the change.
Proof that my life has changed is the weird things that have been happening lately.
On Thursday night, I had dinner with nuns. I was smoking a cigar when my Korean friend came and asked me to help him with his grill. He said that he would buy me dinner. What he didn’t tell me was that these nuns from Tanzania and one from Korea was going to be a part of the dinner. The Korean nun didn’t know as much English. Both my friend and the Korean nun were surprised at my capability to speak Korean. But then, I don’t try to impress people. I just use certain key phrases to let them know I can understand bits and pieces. The key was to use enough focus to not speak Japanese. The head sister, the one from Nebraska was interested in me because I said I was Anglican and she was happy that I was a friend with a Catholic Deacon.
