The stark contrast between Boston and Nevada just hit me. A missionary from Nevada told me how he felt completely smothered by all the trees and foliage--"I can't tell what direction I'm going because there are no reference points." Perhaps that's something that you can do now that you're out of the trees.
Nice. I've been wondering when you will update your main blog picture. But I know your heart can't quite bring yourself to do that yet. It will come...love you.
