    Murderball, Penguins, and Russian nationalists…

    Its the last day of the year, and I think I should update people as to what I’ve been up to. I think I should because life is so incredible and I would love to pass on to all you all reading a sense of how interesting and amazing this world is. Well, maybe that’s overstating it by a lot, but I am enjoying my time at home immensely. (For a page that could increase your appreciation for the world, and also the best place on the net for finding wallpapers for your computer, check out the National Geographic Photo of the Day).

    I have watched two excellent popular documentaries this week – March of the Penguins, about the life of Emperor Penguins; and Murderball, about the life of paralympic quad rugby players. I have had the chance to hang out with my best friends from high school a couple of times. Two nights ago I went out for a little farewell gathering for a friend who is going to go build a timber frame house in Costa Rica. Last night I had the privelege of going to a beautiful wedding and a super fun reception for one of my sister’s high school friends whom I also knew through church and whatnot; it was amazing to get to talk to a number of people from my past at the reception. I have also been able to hang out with all of my siblings a couple of times this week. My Cousin Lisa came up to visit, and we all got together to see her; and my dad came up to visit, so we all got together to see him.

    I am also obsessed right now with Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherezade Suite, especially movement 2…

    Happy New Year!
