As of today, I'm 1/4 of the way through this year, and I can feel it. I'm nowhere close yet to the end, but I definitely think this is the end of the beginning. With more questions than ever in my mind, I'm hoping I can continue to embrace this experience with a spirit of openness in the coming months... and we'll see what comes out of it. Anyway, without any further rambling, here's some of my memories from the past few weeks:
spinach lasagna. the examin. a lesson about rice. challenges. cardinal's games. 375 at harvard yard. muddy jeans and destroyed flats. pumpkin spice-chai lattes from starbucks. awkward t rides. shorts and tights. spiritual direction at bc. boston book fair. reading at trident cafe. costello's tavern. apple picking. arboretum afternoons. mass at st. cecelia's.
