The outdoors

It is getting to that time of year again when Utah is opening the great outdoors. It has been closed to the public all winter, but that is all over now. Megan and I have been going hiking almost every day, and I must say, I have never been so glad to stay home for the summer. We went on a hike yesterday up past the Y. It was beautiful, though I woud like to go again when it gets greener. There is a meadow up there that I would like to camp in. Anyway if you have not been out and about yet this year, you should go. You might just like it.

I have a confession, I never went to Chicago.

After being hounded for some time I have decided to correct my last post. I never went to Chicago. It turned out that licensing was going to be too difficult to get, so my office went to Indianapolis instead. It was a great experience, and I am glad we went.
This year we are no longer working for the security company. For a while we thought we would be going out for the summer, but I ended up getting laid off. For a little while it felt like a setback, but I feel now like it is a blessing in disguise. Megan and I are now thinking of buying a cafe in Salt lake. Whatever happens though I am glad to be staying put for the summer. I will try to keep you all updated as thing progress.

This year Megan and I are going to chicogo for my job. I am working for an alarm company called platinum protection, and I am managing the technical side of an office there. We are both very excited for the summer Megan is excited to work on some personal photography projects and I will be working most of the time. Right now we are living in Provo UT in a condo. Megan will graduate in December with a degree in photography. Right now I am waiting for word on wheather or not I have been accepted into the sculpture program at BYU. Well that is all I have time for right now I hope all who read this enjoy it, and I hope you are all well.

I got married!!!

Ok, so I know that I haven’t posted in a long time, and most of you probably know, but I got married on November 16th 2007. Life is great, and I love being married. My wife is fantastic, and I think I am the luckiest man alive. Other than that I am also in school, working with an alarm company, and hanging out with friends and family that are in the surrounding area.

On the way to Hawaii!!

I am sitting in the airport waiting to board a flight to L.A. I have about a five hour layover there, and I am planning on using the time to go to lunch with my cousin, then it is off to Honolulu. This vacation has been planned for some time, and it is hard to believe that it is here. I am looking forward to spending time with my family I have not seen any of them for about three months now…. There is now about an hour of my flight left. I have spent most of my time reading a book by Orson Scott Card called Xenocide (I recommend it, but first you should read Enders Game and Speaker for the Dead. I should start a list of recommended books, I think I will in fact, these three are the first on my list). Now of course I am typing, and though I am talented enough to listen to foo fighters while I do it—My Hero at the moment—I am not talented enough to read the book and type at the same time. Though this information may be irrelevant to you, and though you may not care, this blog is a space for my thoughts however mundane or insightful they are, and I don’t care if my thoughts bore you.—the song has changed to Times like these....pause to take a picture out the window.... It is nice sometimes to see the tops of the clouds, it is amazing what God has made us capable of, I love to fly, I hope to be a pilot some day, I can’t help but wishing I had more control over the experience.—Best of you—sometimes I think that flying would free me, not just flying but any number of experiences that take me away from the things that are so easy to consider mediocre in life, then I think of how much happier I would be if I found as much pleasure in everyday life. Not an easy task to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, and yet the happiest people I know enjoy so many small things. I guess you could say I am in conflict. One small thing I have learned to take pleasure in is food, not just the consumption of it, but it’s preparation as well (I had a marvelous salad last night—two in the morning actually—it was delectable). It was one of those good nights, just before driving to make and consume the salad James and I had watched a movie, and then enjoyed a great talk in perfect weather in a parking lot in St. Louis. It was one of those moments that of its own right should have been nothing special, but will nevertheless remain in my mind, and will be thought of with fondness, it was just so good!—Another round (good song). Needless to say, I am glad to be alive. I am on the plain now to Honolulu, I had a good visit with my cousin. We went to in and out, and drove around for a while, it was fun, I must say, I have just about the best family I could hope for, I am very blessed—Big Me—(once again I am listening to music).

First steps!

Good morning. I have an exciting news flash, I CAN WALK! For a good part of a week I have only been able to hobble with the aid of an ace wrap around my leg. It is now about four in the morning and I am about to take James to the air port. I decided to give walking a shot (something I do every day), and stood up without wrapping my leg. I was able to walk! It still hurts of coarse, but not so much as to make me fall down. I am excited. Don't take walking for granted, walking is great. I will post again when I feel like it.
