  • Some days you gotta buy yourself some roses for no reason at all. "Culture Care is a generative approach to culture that brings bouquets of flowers into a culture bereft of beauty." -Makoto Fujimura, from 'Culture Care'
  • Special occasion @handsomizer with my boy this afternoon. First real gentleman's haircut. 💛

  • "Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.
The children of your servants shall dwell secure; their offspring shall be established before you." -Psalm 102:25-28

  • On my way to spend a week in Vermont with these good folks...pretty good way to close out the summer.
  • Stowaways in my bag on a flight to Manchester...miss you, Rhodes Webb!
  • When I thought, "My foot slips," your steadfast love, O LORD, held me up. - Psalm 94:18 (Pisgah National Forest)
  • One for the books today...exploring Pisgah National Forest (North Carolina) with my Dad & my kids in a 15 passenger van with John Denver on the stereo. More than superficial sentimentality, this adventure captured a long view of my life. "Country roads, take me home, to the place where I belong..." 🎶 If I may, St. Augustine penned a parallel poem of longing, "Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you." Full hearts as we tuck into our beds at a campsite in the mountains.
