Souldier
“I have one desire now - to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.”
― Elisabeth Elliot

And it won’t be too long til the numbness kicks in, filling the space in between.
Time exists. Nothing lasts.
So take a deep breathe, and close your eyes, pretty soon my darling, this will come to pass.

Writing thought posts very soon

I need more guts to do this right.

Conversations with Father (about men & dating)
  • Me: I just watched a show about how successful (i.e. college educated) black women are not getting married.
  • Him: Why is that a show? What's the problem? A black woman is better off by herself than with a black man that will bring her down. There's no point in getting married unless it's about mutual love and respect.
  • Me: Well a lot of the black men on the show said that the reason black women are single is because they expect too much.
  • Him: Psh. Black women do not expect too much! What is a black woman supposed to do? She is educated. She has her life in order. And she is supposed to get with any old man because he didn't get his life together but still feels he is entitled to any woman he wants?
  • Me: Well they said that you have to look at a man's potential.
  • Him: That's what they want you to think so that you don't require anything in actuality from them. You look at who a man is. Not who he says he will be.
  • Me: The show also talked about why a lot of men cheat. They said it's because women were not keeping them happy or not sexually doing what they want.
  • Him: That's ridiculous. There's no reason for anybody to cheat. If a man is grounded then he will love his partner enough not to cheat.
  • Me: They also said that you need to make a man feel like a man.
  • Him: If I am a man then why would I need a woman to make me feel like a man?
  • Me: I don't know.
  • Him: A real man does not need a woman to make him feel like a man. He is a man, isn't he? Men who say that have an inferiority complex.
  • Me: Well they were saying that they need to feel like they wear the pants in the relationship.
  • Him: Look. A man does not feel threatened by anyone unless he does not have his own life together. And in that case he will be threatened whether a woman lays down and lets him walk all over him or if she makes more money or anything else.

I want an apple mint mojito or lemon beer and I want it now :(

What I’d give to see this woman live.

❝ I am a hunter of beauty and I move slow and I keep eyes wide, every fiber of every muscle sensing all wonder and this is the thrill of the hunt and I could be an expert on the life full, the beauty meat the lurks in every moment. ❞

❝ This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time. ❞

— Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood  (via herkindoftea)
