Another observation from moving is that the technology associated with information storage and retrieval has made it unnecessary for me to hold onto many of the things I used to keep. Likewise, oddly, with the technology associated with popcorn. Who needs an air popper, or even a device that makes kernel popcorn microwavable?
Yesterday was road tripping with Connor and Sara to Idaho Falls for expressedinword and taci's wedding today. Had a great time the whole way. I'm thankful not only for the friendship of my travelling companions, but also for their relationship. It makes my heart glad and relieves me somewhat to be with a couple who's clearly a couple, but who haven't lost themselves and the world in one another. Each couple has their own style and needs, but I've seen so many that are constant approval-and-control dramas or have degenerated to feeding on one another in a spectacle of emotional cannibalism that I get gunshy. Seeing Sara quietly take Connor's hand every once in a while as she drove reassured and encouraged me beyond measure.
We have no idea what we'll do for the day, but after a twelve-hour drive (and with another of those on deck tomorrow), we're looking forward to any adventure. And I'm definitely excited and blessed to be able to be here for Winter and Jeremy's wedding. It's good to see things through.
