We never change, do we?

The day in review: Picked up by Dan, dinner at Don Chilitos, Bubba Ho-Tep with Dan, Chrissy and her boi, meandering out to Barnes & Noble, wandering around Olathe, drifting into Lawrence, Java Break for some hot shocko-latte and chai for Dan (with some mild flirting with the cute girl behind the counter), walking through downtown Lawrence at 12:30 am, going back to Java Break to flirt a little more and get more drinks, 3 good games of chess, a farewell flirt, back to the car, back to KC, and then home at about 4:10 am. Good times, good times. Tomorrow I work on cleaning my room and wrapping all my gifts. If that all gets done, I might even venture an attempt at reorganizing my cds. It's more likely, though, that I'll get caught up playing Mario Kart on the Gamecube. Que sera sera.

At one point, Dan and I were cruising down Santa Fe somewhere between Olathe and Eudora when we decided to pull over and get out to look at the sky. Wow. Numerous people have heard me complain about the evil civilization glow that radiates from this city, but it's been so long since I last left it on a clear night that I'd forgotten how beautiful the night sky can be. Out beyond the fringe of civilization lies a field full of brilliant points of light. The occasional fuzzy tailed rabbit zips across the sky, disappearing almost as quickly as it appeared. Satellites and planets show up amongst their distant cousins. Even a heretic like myself can find God's fingerprints lingering amongst the distant stardust. There may be pain, misery, unrest and melancholy back here in the city, but out there at night, all things fade into darkness, only to be consumed by the light of thousands of distant stars. Limited inner peace is only a lengthy drive away from anything remotely civilized.
