look at me, I'm posting on porchnight!

...and I invite you to do the same.

In typical Sara fashion, I will share a lovely Mary Oliver poem that Susan shared on her blog.

Mysteries, Yes

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous
to be understood.

How grass can be nourishing in the
mouths of the lambs.
How rivers and stones are forever
in allegiance with gravity
while we ourselves dream of rising.
How two hands touch and the bonds
will never be broken.
How people come, from delight or the
scars of damage,
to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
“Look!” and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.

My life update

Hi friends--
I just wrote this update in e-mail form to Cammie and realized that I haven't seen some of you for about as long as I haven't seen Cammie, so I decided to post it here. Nothing special, just my update.

Things are going well for me...school is school. Lots of work to do, lots of things to distract me from work I don't want to do. Like Halloween and this election; knitting scarves and Cesar Milan, the dog whisperer. But overall, I am feeling good about where I am with all of the career/life decisions. I'm on a path and right now is the boring part where I'm in the middle of the forest and all I can see is the same old trees I've been staring at for a year, but eventually, I know I'll emerge and stumble upon some beautiful scenic view and it will be worth the trudge. I interviewed with the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) here in KC and I can go back to the law firm I worked for last summer, so it's just waiting at this point and seeing where I will end up at least initially after law school.

In my other life, I'm singing in the choir at church and really enjoying it. I am also taking voice lessons with Matthew Shepard which is helping me be a better, more confident singer. I also just started (last week) volunteering in my friend Derek's classroom of 5th graders at Troost Elementary. He's having me help them one on one with math (division and multiplication) and it's really rewarding. They are two really small things that I can fit in with my otherwise totally self-indulgent (if you can call reading 18 hours a day for school that) lifestyle and I'm glad for a change of pace a couple times a week.

Oh, and Zadee is about to become the most well-behaved dog ever. I am going to dominate her like nobody's business. Cesar (the dog whisperer) has inspired me. We have ordered the DVDs of the first season through Netflix :)

Beware of Old Man McCain- while it may appear that he wanders around stages aimlessly, make no mistake: he is on the prowl with a purpose!:

And what the hell is this? Can any of you see Palin's purse? It's a canvas bag with a moose!! WTF?:
