Free Day

Today was our "free day" in San Luis Obispo during our week of Vision Dinners. And by "free day", my boss meant, let's have a six hour meeting.

All in all it wasn't bad. We had some great laughs, had a challenging devotion and talked about some good stuff. I kept feeling some sense of unrest though. I don't know what it was. Some of the things we talked about, are things that get me excited about work and my job . . . but I still couldn't shake the feeling.

It may be that I am getting the itch for change again. And maybe it's because I've been questioning what my passions in life are and wondering what I really want to do . . . and I wonder if it's just wishful thinking to want to work in something that I am passionate about. I question whether I'm even passionate about camp ministry. Likely not. I love being a part of it, and I see the benefit . . . but is that what I really love? Maybe I'm just lazy and apathetic because I see all the great things that could happen in the next few years . . . but feel overwhelmed by all the work and effort that it would take. Maybe I am just noncommital. Who knows.

Anyways, tonight Jeff and Mike and Tyler and I joined two other guys from the area for dinner. It was comical . . . me and 5 guys . . . at a sports restaurant. Firestone, if you've heard of it. I had a great veggie burger though! Then we went and saw "Taken". Not much of a story line . . . but it was intense with lots of fun action. It had an abrupt ending as movies like that often have. But I enjoyed it for what it was. And it makes me angry about human trafficking.

Then we walked the streets of SLO and visited the gum wall (a little alley that's completely covered with chewing gum). Of course I had to add my contribution.

Sorry this is long . . . a gold star to anyone that actually read this far.
