Promised and Delivered

Well readers, here's that update I've been promising. The look is different, but the writer is still the same! I hope you like what I've done with the site. Aside from the visual changes, I have redone the post labels, added a "This Day in History" section (at the bottom, after the last post on the page), and removed a few items that I felt were no longer needed. Later I plan to add a few more features, which I also hope you will enjoy.

With the new look comes a new purpose as well. Now that I've completed my year in Korea, this blog will follow me as I readjust to life in the USA, continue to travel, and start my new chapter as a newbie junior high teacher in Manassas, Virginia (beginning in August). I hope to continue to show you all just how much fun and how many memorable adventures a Christian girl can have (and probably how many mishaps as well, knowing my luck). Stay tuned!

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
