toldailytopic: What kind of activities do you have planned for the summer?
TOL Topic of the Day - Chime In!Every day we will post a new topic and we want to get your comments on that topic. The topic could be about literally anything from the vague to the specific, important or trivial. The TOL membership can take that topic and run with it!
Usually I can whip through novels pretty quickly, even Tolstoy, but Martin's storytelling is so DENSE I feel like I'm slogging through knee-deep mud trying to take in everything that's happening and everyone's reactions to it.
I went through them pretty quickly, myself. Now I have to wait until next season because the sixth book won't be out for a while.
I'm in Iraq/Kurdistan at the moment, hoping this post will go through, since the Internet service in our hosts' house barely works. Iraq has been interesting... Kind of wish we could do more evangelism, but my team's purpose in being here is to minister to the orphans and widows of the community.
At the end of this month is a road trip to someplace near Philadelphia; going to help move my aunt there.
In July, I'm chaperoning my fellowship's jr high youth camp somewhere in state.
In August, I'm chaperoning my fellowship's youth trip to Joplin for a rebuilding project.
Hands that help are holier than lips that pray.

Nothing in particular. I started volunteering for a children's grieving center but that won't take up much time. My volunteer work at the hospital doesn't take up much time either so I added helping around my own synagogue. When that's over I think I'll volunteer for our Observatory. I was considering volunteering for our local park system too but their website is all messed up.
I guess we'll be doing the usual - hiking, kayaking, family stuff. Hoping to get a new bike soon.
I believe that the Universe is one being, all its parts are different expressions of the same energy,
and they are all in communication with each other, therefore parts of one organic whole.
This whole is in all its parts so beautiful, and is felt by me to be so intensely in earnest, that I am compelled to love it and to think of it as divine
