I can't recall the last time that I wrote for two consecutive days! Of course, there'll be lapse of about three or four days, now, to make up for this...
Tomorrow, I will be going on a Field Botany camping trip to Southern Illinois. I am taking this class (which is SO COOL) in hopes of learning a little bit about botany & other exciting earth sciences since dear old Alma Mater doesn't have a ethnobotany major (ethnobotany is the study of plants and the way that people use them).
Plus I like camping.
This will be a 3-day trip, and normally, Nathan would be able to go with me, but there is going to be a fundraiser at the Baha'i Center on Saturday in which he will be helping. Plus, he is working for a bottled water company right now, delivering bottled water.
I have a lot of weird little things to say, but all of them require much explanation... so I will choose my favorite:
After this past weekend (the Hip Hop PA weekend) I have felt really transformed. A lot of intense emotional time, as well as a 26+ hour round trip, has allowed cool insights to surface in my brain. However, often I think of transformation as an airy light-filled process - like a butterfly undergoes... the result being a beautiful winged creature.
However, THIS transformation has left me feeling like MOLTEN LAVA! Hot and powerful and full of potential.
okay - sit with that.
love you all,
