day 2





so, back here in Maryland again, day 2. I'm feeling a bit philosophical, as some friends of mine have been feeling that way too. Its good to reflect on life....but only so much that you dont actually miss it. Life is meant to be lived. (random thoughts I guess....) My photos should be up on the photo website soon, maybe by late tonight.

I'm pretty excited because I got some money for my birthday....and I never used it, so now I'm going to get some CDs I've had on my mind: The Killers, MxPx, and of course the new Coldplay. Its been a while since I have bought new music. Finally I get to use it. hmmm....I feel I might have a poetic spell coming on too. Usually new music helps me out with that (and of course...moving experiences). I'll stick anything good that I write up here for your viewing enjoyment.

Hey Brian --

I definitely agree with the philosophy thing you said. Life is a balance of pondering, thinking, and analyzing, and then simply doing, enjoying, and being.

I love travel because it almost always give you the perfect balance -- you are doing, but then you are forced to sit (on a train, a plane, in an auto, along the side of the road, etc.) and think. There are problems with doing too much of either of the extremes. Sometimes people get too into the "doing" and forget to enjoy and reflect on what they are doing. It becomes a goal - something to accomplish. But what happens in the end? They missed everything in between and simply have one more notch on their belts to prove that they did it. At other times people think too much about doing things and never actually experience them. Yes, balance is good...
