Intentional

I got a ticket yesterday. It’s the first one I’ve had since I went flying down the freeway 15 years ago in one of the most powerful cars around back then…yes, I had a Honda CRX. 78 mph, by the way. But that’s not the point.

I was pulled over for running a red light (arrow) turning left to pick the boys up after work.

Compassion

Prop 8 passed. I’m pleased more about that than anything else from the election. Frankly, it’s all that really mattered to me. But my heart has been heavy all day for the homosexual couples who were married earlier this year (I know two of them). I read this afternoon that with the passing of Prop 8 will be the request to nullify all of those relationships stamped with marriage certificates from the State of California.

Our Costume Party

Well at this point I’d say trick-or-treating is overrated. You really can’t beat hosting your own costume party and having guests like this come over.

Seriously, when compared to the alternative of celebrating Halloween and all that it implies, I was delighted to host a costume party for the boys and their friends.

A Little Heart’s Cry

As I waited outside the boys’ tutoring center this evening watching their friends and former karate buddies spill out of the dojo, I couldn’t help but lose heart for the boys. School has become their occupation, and homework their recreation. And I have to admit that I hate it.

So tonight we broke home policy and watched a movie on a school night.
