Because ultimately, no matter how hard we try nothing can ever remain constant. Even if you work the same job in the same office for decades, your place of work will change over time. People will come and go, the walls will be painted and the boss may decide to change the curtains in the smoking room after they are stained yellow from years of passive smoking. You may live in the same house you were born in for the rest of your life but that house will not stay the same. Each day it becomes older, just like yourself. Time wears off the paint and the plaster and becoming older is essentially a form of travelling. There is no denying that we are all travellers. Unless you have found a way of freezing time, you are a traveller. Whether you like to admit it or not. All life and every person bears witness to the dynamic nature of life. Everybody experiences the constant renewal of experience itself. You can choose not to pay attention to it, but it will happen none the less. Because it reminds us that we are alive. That is the constant renewal of experience. The feeling of being alive and in touch with your own experience. We can think about the past and the future, but we can only exist in this moment. That is all there ever is and all there ever will be, no matter how much time you spend thinking about past or future events. Because it gives our mind a very good reason to stop thinking and pay attention to our experience as it is unfolding. While thinking of past or future events, you cannot help but remain largely unaware of the current moment. You cannot think about your experience and have your experience at the same time. You cannot think and experience at the same time, for once you start thinking your awareness is drawn away from the experience itself and for all practical purposes you are no longer having those experiences.

Brown who, while never s superstar, has experience and might be asked to set an example for the rookies. Stroughter, too, should be on your radar. Celek is your signal. His stock this offseason, too, was very low, but also now is beginning to rise as more people realize he will likely get all the goal-line work and most of the rushes for this team, a team that will run the ball as much as possible. Ward is still in town, but myself i let someone else have the good fella. Alright, two divisions to go and then we can wrap up these preseason thoughts. Navigation bar above for information about each type of league. The story was the most interesting part. Raiders movement, so did the fans. The interviews were neat too. Today is the second day of the two days conference. The panel will discuss the two paper presented in the morning. Soccer must still be riding high. American faves baseball and basketball. Anyway, the game was what it was. Every time i hear a girl squeal, i jump up looking for those familiar faces. Gonzalez in a footrace. Not even breaking a sweat. There is nothing that i find redeemable about the sports program, school, or fan base. Eugene is filled with nothing but thug football players, dope smoking hippie students, and a self absorbed, obnoxious fan base. O props is in their cheer program.

Transit ticket is just about the same amount as shipping. On the road to shelter myself from the sun and dusty road trips and chilly nights. There is a need to be used as a headdress. Dreams and tagged travel, items, attire. Perhaps i had been mentally preparing myself to come back for the last three months and had no unrealistic expectations. In any permutation of these causes of unhappiness, i am doing just fine. During the graduate school orientation, i was asked to present on my trip and give a speech on my travels. Ikechi the year prior, so i managed to put something together that i felt replicated his tone, grandeur, and delivery. Perhaps it was slightly more active but it was not bland in any form of the word. Later i had a few students recognize me by name, face, or context and it has seemingly brought me into some form of popularity. My honesty sometimes dumbfounds others, while it provokes the rest. All of this will be clear in academia. Louis and a wedding up north. Bozeman to see them off on the journey of the rest of their life. Returning, they seem more like a married couple than ever before and to a degree the demonstration of it is happily sickening. It excites me that they are so close to a day of happiness and memories and then have an additional gift of eternity with one another. For now, this is all. Tajikistan interesting. Dushanbe environment flavors. May god be with you and return you safely to your family. Williams and eat a little humble pie.

Tourists waddle in amused, slow moving packs, picking up trinkets, taking pictures of sailboats and looking for restrooms. They gawk, and squint and refill water bottles and change diapers. They try to save money by filling up on bread. Tourists perpetually teeter on the edge of being lost. This gives them a befuddled way as they seek their coordinates on the glossy chamber of commerce tourism map. Tourists buy a new pair of pleated, acid washed denim jean shorts and forget to take the tag off. They buy bright floral tops and creased bottoms. Parisians, falls far short of glamorous. A wedgie is not a fashion statement. And backpacks and polarized sunglasses and white tennis shoes and braided leather belts. Tourists accessorize for functionality. Sanitizer goop, sunscreen, band aids, room keys, maps, extra diapers, light jackets and extremely expensive cameras dangle from limbs and fill pockets. The tourists sets out, well outfitted and ready for anything. My mom use to stuff my siblings and i in splashy handmade vests and pink turtlenecks then parade us shamelessly. Families and couples tend to generally mimic the same basic theme or color pattern when traveling. With exception of the brooding hipster tween, but even she is an expected cliche. The khaki vest with all the pockets. Joanna, dorks are dorks no matter what they are. Love your witty ways. While at a workshop on discovering the right light and taking some portrait shots, this sailboat with the breaking wave caught my eye. You often hear about looking at what is behind you when photographing.
