not quite sure about this. in the process of cleaning all my crapola off my mac at work (ah, little OS X I will miss you) and i came across this. not sure what i was thinking here, it's odd. my skills are a joke but it was entertaining.

South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu walked by a construction site on a temporary sidewalk the width of one person. A white man appeared at the other end, recognized Tutu, and said, "I don't make way for gorillas." At which Tutu stepped aside, made a deep sweeping gesture, and said, "Ah, yes, but I do."

Going on an excursion and everyone is full of "useful advice"

*If any sort of official authorative person speaks to me at Heathrow, just sit on the floor and start crying- haha, i dunno.
*Starve in order to see the sights- Yes, i plan to do this.
*Do not step onto a bus without money on my travel card- I'm not an idiot.
* If I meet a boy, "allow the relationship to blossom"have fun with him  for the entire time I'm there. HAHA- living in a fantasy much?
* "If you struggle to get home one night, just go home with a random, the guys are all super friendly, especially cause you're South African"- Oh I laughed when I heard this.
* Take my flute over and busk at the tube stations to support myself- HAHAHA, imagine.
*When in doubt, drink Strongbow!

Let's get some shoes!

"May the wind under her wings bear her where the sun sails and the moon walks."

These are truly things of beauty. check it out.

no wonder I'm singing!

So stoked! This needs to be shared! Been praying for the people in my office. Especially this one very negative single mom who thinks that men are only good to hurt you because of her divorce and that the world is out to get you. Today she is GLOWING. This man has stepped into her and her daughters life. She says that she is like a teenager with butterflies in her stomach and that she wakes up at 2am with him on her mind. Everyone in the office told her that he sounds too good to be true. I told her that her turn has finally come and everything happens for a reason. Then we hi-fived- something that I don’t think she’s done in a while. So stoked for her! Yes!

When I was younger, I was completely unashamedly obsessed with sunflowers. I saw this picture and remembered why.

I'd like to frolic in this field and follow the direction of the sun too, while listening to this song:

Mothers day- 10 May

" I don't want to be adored, don't want to be first in line or make myself heard. I'd like to shine a little light, to shine a light on your life, to make you feel loved."

I love him muchly!

My brother made me tea last night. First time he's ever done that. I was sitting in the lounge watching "Becoming Jane" (great movie) and he simply asked "how many sugars do you take and do you take milk in your tea?" It was a muuuuuuchos sweet moment. So here is a tribute to my tea making hell of a good guy brother.

And here is an embarrasing photo of him that i found on his shmodel profie. har har har. shame. he's great- got a lot of love in my heart for this kid!

Where: Baden Powell Drive
Time: around 7am
Tune: track 5 on Hillsong United
Thoughts: I have begun to fall in love with my life.

" you are wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from the joy of human relationships. God's place is all around us, it is in everything and in anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at things"
