snow day

26 12 2010

god caught up with me today on a powdery path round east campus.

we had 6 inches of snow in durham last night. whut? durham and duke staff did an amazing job with roads and sidewalks. the usual tuesday route was pastoral.

two couples i passed were smiling and holding hands. three japanese guys taking pictures in front of the chapel did not want me to take a picture of all of them, thank you very much. also ran past a father with his sons throwing snowballs at duke chapel. this is snow-cone-worthy, snowball-making snow.

i grinned lobe-to-lobe the whole 5 miles. ran into eleanor the last 1/4 mile and chatted a bit about life a bit, then skipped all the way home. these last few weeks, i’ve been reminded of my blessings through:

  • christmas eve at carole’s
  • wendy’s angel and friendship
  • adam & heather’s katy
  • ken’s values
  • steve’s comic-ly-wrapped presents
  • eddie’s christmas sentiments
  • mom and mr. song
  • derrick and b-mo’s divine pairing
  • new friends from overseas

i feel thankful.
whatever my life is supposed to be, it will be.
whatever my relationships are supposed to be, they will be.

quality time with ed and mel. the adult version of playing with christmas presents = reading stuff white people like and playing with frolicat. going to open this booker’s and watch be kind rewind. ultimate veg day.

thanks pom for posting this

kids are sledding outside. i’m going to go visit the neighbors’ kids, if this sleet lets up…
the girls survived the night and will live to lay another day.
