I learned the other day that Terrence Malick finished the script for The New World in the late '70s, and it lay dormant till in was made into the 2005 feature film.

Isn't that weird? What other amazing scripts does Malick have just sitting around (just waiting for a few decades to pass)?

I'm cleaning out my inbox! I've knocked off about 500 emails this evening alone! Won't rest until the inbox is spic and span!

Today I was on dish duty after lunch. When I mopped, I used a mop that reminded me of those very, very thin spaghetti noodles.

Installment Number Thirty Four...

"What this means is that prayer can be learned only in the vocabulary and grammar of personal relationship: Father! Friend! It can never be a matter of getting the right words in the right order. It can never be a matter of good behavior or proper disposition or skillful manipulation. It can never be a matter of acquiring some information about God or getting in touch with myself. It is a relationship, exclusively and unendingly personal."
—Eugene Peterson, Tell It Slant

Have I shared this already? I think it's a wonderful quote and something that I wish I could really take to heart. Really get it my head (and heart) and learn, really learn.

But for now, I'm going to have to live with being reminded of it, and it is wonderful to be reminded of this unendingly personal God.

Beyond Awesome

This will make your day. Seriously. Just watch it.

This clip is referenced in "UP", by the way. In this clip:

I found all this out through this: Easter Eggs in Pixar’s Up

Yep. That's right.

Old Friend Back

I'm excited because of this new piece of furniture in my room:

Apperently (I just found out this story today), my grandmother gave this glider to my mom when I was a baby because (and I like this part) I liked to rock.

Anyone reading this who knows me is probably not very surprised. Motion is very important to me and always has been. As I think about this chair, I wonder if this is a part of why the swings are my favorite part of the playground?

Anyway, it's nice to have an old friend back. And to sort of feel a sense of ownership (I didn't know this was actually mine [or, at least, more so than I thought] until today). Now, we'll see if I actually get to keep this in my room. For my room is not very large, and clutters up fast. I will at least enjoy it for today.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have an old friend to get reacquainted with.
