Holiday Wrap Up

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 9 Nov 2008 | Views [345]

After an exhausting two weeks of University work, I was more than ready for a holiday. My flight to the Whit Sundays was scheduled for 6am on Weds morning, so, rather than getting a taxi, my plan was to have my friend Nick drop me off at the airport ... Read more >

The Joys of Freedom

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 29 Sep 2008 | Views [561]

For the past week and a half I have not been a free man, but rather a prisoner. Unlike most prison sentences however, my term was not based on a set duration of time but rather on the completion of a duty. It was not a forced imprisonment, ... Read more >

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where there voice is not heard. Their voice goes ... Read more >

Word Games

AUSTRALIA | Wednesday, 20 Aug 2008 | Views [632]

My Australian friends all seem to think that the way I talk is quite comical. I’ve never really thought much about it…I always thought I talked normal. One of their favorite games to play with me is to put on a West Virginian accent ... Read more >

Sydney

AUSTRALIA | Monday, 18 Aug 2008 | Views [583]

Only a week had gone by and I had to get out of Newcastle and see something. I was in a different country, but it didn’t really feel like it. I needed to go somewhere that would let me know that I was no longer in the United States.... Read more >


The Early Days of Newcastle

Good or bad, the first few days in Australia were not what I imagined…they were hard. I was forced to do something I hadn’t done in awhile; step outside my comfort zone. Each place I visited was foreign, every person I met was a stranger, ... Read more >

Departing Thoughts

USA | Friday, 18 Jul 2008 | Views [558]

“No, Life cannot be understood flat on a page. It has to be lived; a person has to get out of his head, has to fall in love, has to memorize poems, has to jump off bridges into rivers, has to stand in an   empty desert and whisper sonnets under his ... Read more >


Thank You

USA | Friday, 18 Jul 2008 | Views [397] | Comments [1]

Before my first official post, I think it’s important that I take some time to express my appreciation. With what little wisdom I possess, I am able to understand that I am not the one who is largely responsible for this journey. There have been various ... Read more >
