My eyebrow, still raised

Lunch at Blue Willow Tea House. The day has been reasonably productive, and though I've felt fairly unmotivated, this is in a playful rather than a burdensome fashion. I feel like being silly.

Decided to begin reading The Sacred Romance again (there are sample pages available via the link). It's one of the most personally impacting books I've read, and God's recent activity in my life brings me to read it again. I am also suggesting it to Nate as summer reading for our Community Group (in part to make the prospect of meeting over the summer more palatable, since I personally long for a break). I'll almost certainly be writing more about it in the future.

The newness still hasn't worn off: I'm still constantly looking around as if the world is new to me ("a stranger in my own skin, yet slicing through the world around me like a hot knife through butter"). Some kind of strange, fearless wonder.

Two dear friends are taking journeys this week. I pray that both are blessed with peace. Or something else, if that's what He wants to give. He loves them, I know.
