April 23, 1996 – Tuesday – 9:05 a.m.

Last night I rented The Usual Suspects.  The most amazing ending.  I couldn’t believe it.

My lip is slowly getting better.  I was invited to go to Honors and Awards tonight.  Tomorrow night after church we are going to go to Sharon’s to watch Babe.  Then there is a Bible study at Sharon’s on Thursday.  Friday is the last day of classes.

As I was walking back to my room from breakfast, I stopped.  I looked around me.  Two years.  I’ve been here for two years.

It’s hard to believe that in two weeks I will be back in the ancient place of Siler City.

My time in the shadowlands is moving quickly.  I haven’t heard from Jonathan since he left my house on that cold winter night with no place to go.  Emily seems she has decided to not write me back.  I’m glad she is the one and not me.

But soon I will dance on silver moonlight and walk through velvet field.  Hopefully they, and all the others, will do the same with me.

Daylight, see the dew on the sunflower

And the rose that is fading

Roses wither away

Like the sunflower, I yearn to turn my face to the dawn

I am waiting…for the day.
