It’s officially the first day of summer!
Friday night I went to Asheboro and ran into Wynne and Grant from high school. We went to see X-Files together. It was nice to be near them. I rode around in the back of Grant’s truck for a bit as he cruised downtown. It was a nice moment of wind and freedom.
On Saturday I spent the day with Sarah at Pilot Mountain on the other side of Winston-Salem. What a magical place. We saw Hope Floats that evening and ate dinner with her dad. We had some difficult hikes during our hike. I’m glad I’m leaving. Sarah and I feel a bit stuck. I’m sure if I were three years younger, our relationship would play out differently. I love her, but it is closing time for us now. I need to go away and have time with God.
Mom and Henry have given me a car. It is a 1989 Dodge Aires, something Henry used to drive.
I have five full days left here. I am in the process of registering for my fall graduate classes. All of that will begin in about two months, and one of those months will be spent in Africa.
I’m yours God.
