The Toilet

I didn’t notice when I finished. I didn’t notice when I flushed. It was an hour later when I had to take a leek. Toilet paper was still there, in the hole, floating. But it had happened before. Another flush would take care of…

What do you think I am, Gym?! I’m a Nerd, not an Athlete!

It was Saturday morning. It’s been so long since I’ve walked through the parking lot, past the vent from the pool which was warm and moist, the scent filled with chlorine. From the exhaust you could see the pool, with the large glass windows…

Halfway there!

Congrats to you guys doing NaNoWriMo. No matter how far ahead or behind, we’re half way through the month. I discovered what Baty-isms were, so here are a few from an amazing poster I might have to pick up. This guy’s a master of…

Bloody

Wake up with a stuffed nose. Blow it til crimson flows. The blood dyes paper then clots, and as I lay down, as I ponder the past I try to forget and the future which never is, I feel the thick, swollen cells and…

Note Cards

I wrote upon a note card how life was, as I couldn’t stop thinking about you. I sent it by tossing it up and it disappeared. I don’t know how, but I know that’s how I could get it to you. I returned in…

Guatemala: Some odd cultural differences

I feel like this is an, “You know you’re in a third world country when…” post. Really it’s a bit more of a this is how spoiled and lucky we are in the United States and other countries where your internet connection is solid…

Guatemala: Aftermath

I’ll be going through the day to day, but I want to get the picture first. The trip was pretty life altering, as has been the past few weeks, which is good. I think I’m getting back on track to where I was. During…

Final Full Day

I’m a bit on melt down today. It’s a combination of money got tight, I’m not in San Pablo, and I don’t want to leave. I want to stay here, and I think when I get home I’ll start making strides towards making that…

Guatemala!

So this place is beautiful. Like bring me to tears (almost) beautiful. So thankful and blessed to be here for God’s glory.

Guatemala

Off I go. When I return next Saturday I’ll have plenty of pictures and stories. For now I have fatigue and a weird feeling in my stomach. Hopefully no weird feelings in my stomach when I’m down there. Blessings! Paul
