We are on the road right now, somewhere around Jacksonville, FL.
Yesterday was so awesome. We rented wave-runners and went out in the Gulf of Mexico. It was so much fun; it felt like I was flying just inches above the water.
That evening Syndi and her boyfriend Eric came to pick me up. We went to this really huge multiplex with 20 screens and saw Tom Hanks’ That Thing You Do. It was so funny. A really great movie. Syndi looked good; she grew her hair back and colored it blonde. She is happy down here and it was great that I simply got to see her, the girl I held under the waterfall at the end of my Freshman year.
The other thing happened yesterday is that we heard on the radio that Tommy Moe was going to be at a Ski and Sports Shop. Tommy Moe was a gold medalist in the 1994 Olympics. Dan has posters of him in his room. So we all went and got free T-shirts, he autographed them all and we got our picture taken with him. Dan was really excited. “I can’t wait to tell my parents that I went to Flordia to meet Tommy Moe!” he said.
That evening, whenever Syndi and Eric brought me back, I went for a walk around Kate’s neighborhood. I prayed and sang to the Lord.
He is so great to me.
The air was so warm.
The midnight clouds so pretty.
My dreams are coming true.
I’m doing that thing that only I can do.
