Recursive Blogging

Today I am blogging about blogging. It is such a strange thing really when I think about it. I spend all of this time living and doing things and my thoughts are, "wow this will make a good story." Yet I do enjoy the moment but my completion of the enjoyment is in telling others. Thats why I like to blog. The big fish or the made soccer goal are not enjoyable when kept to one's self. Rather when we tell others we take joy in what took place.

Also there is a skill involved, not only is my joy complete in telling the story but I labor over the right way to tell it so that it represents the feelings of the moment when the event took place. By capturing the mood or irony of a situation, one can turn even an ordinary event into a good story if they have the skill. Thus there is a joy to telling that I look forward to even while I am doing the very thing I will be telling.

physiognomy \fiz-ee-OG-nuh-mee; -ON-uh-mee\, noun:

1. The art of discovering temperament and other characteristic qualities of the mind from the outward appearance, especially by the features of the face.

I do this all of the time but I have never thought to stop and think about it. So today me and a friend spent a little time wondering what kind of faces convey what kind of temperament. Like a round face, or big ears, or a mole on the nose. What does a square face or a tan face convey? Try looking at people and guessing their temperament by their face, it is a good game. I declare October 11 physiognomy day.

I will survive

At first I was afraid I was pretrified,
kept thinking my blog had just dried up and died
and I spent oh so many nights just feeling sorry for myself
I used to cry but now I hold my head up high

and you see me and I got work to do
but I'm here and your the one I'm posting too
you thought you'd just drop by and expect me to be free
and now posting even though this is not the place I'm suppose to be

Well everyone my computer up and died and now I have to go to the computer room to post to my blog. It is very inconvenient but I really like doing it so I will try to continue.

I just got back from a long trip to kansas. It was a good trip though and it was really nice to see people. It was just long enough to make me realize how much I miss all of the people whom I havent seen in a while. So ultimately it leaves me kind of sad.

I have a big greek test tomorrow so I am going to study and pray for endurance because I am tired.
