Happy Friday! It has been a good week. I got a wedding invitation from a good friend (so exciting), I am 3/4 through Travelling to Infinity by Jane Hawking, and I fixed my last academic schedule. I hope you had a great week. Many started work and classes this week. The busy routines begin, but Friday has come to rescue us from the grind.
“I want you to stop running from thing to thing to thing, and to sit down at the table, to offer the people you love something humble and nourishing, like soup and bread, like a story, like a hand holding another hand while you pray. We live in a world that values us for how fast we go, for how much we accomplish, for how much life we can pack into one day. But I’m coming to believe it’s in the in-between spaces that our lives change, and that the real beauty lies there.”
“Every majestic oak tree was once a nut who stood his ground.”

“The best project you’ll ever work on is you.”
“There’s a lot I’m dreaming about for 2015, but one thing I know: whatever I do, I want to do it with the people, near & far, who’ve shaped my path to this point. Friendship is God’s greatest evidence of himself here on earth.”
