In the flow or connexxion

In the flow, originally uploaded by chanchanchepon.
Although it doesn't fully look like it, this is a picture of me snowboarding down a hill at one of my friend's house. I love snowboarding. It's like surfing on snow. I just like being in the flow with things in general.

Like today. Today has been such an amazing day. I had a full night of sleep. And when I woke up, I had some greating connection with the creator of the universe. Then, I got a bunch of paperwork done before it had the chance to pile up on me (it's so easy to procrastinate and get in trouble with that kind of stuff). Then, I went out to Chestnut Ridge with Brian, Megan, and Cameron, three people who I work with at WVU. We walked around the space, we caught up on life, we shared stories, we played basketball, and in the middle of all of this we were able to connect and talk about a lot of stuff happening among our community. It was fun, relaxed, refreshing, and topped off with a delicious meal at Ruby and Ketchy's, a local restaurant with scrumptious food.

After that, I went with cameron to Starbucks and had some great conversation/connecting times with a couple of students, and managed to also do a little planning for some future events for h2o and our canvas groups.

Cam and I left the coffee shop, and I arrived at home. I caught up on some emails, and had a few short chats on instant messenger with people. Then, I went to see a movie, Pan's Labyrinth. It was pretty interesting (don't want to give away anything).

So I ran down to the theater because I knew that if I wanted to see this movie, I couldn't do it later in the day. It would interrupt my flow.

I arrived a few minutes late, but stuck around and watched the beginning of the next showing of the movie. While I was waiting, I saw a guy who was in a French class I tried to get into and a guy who used to come by the waterhouse (our old ministry center). It was way cool being able to recognize and connect with them.

On my way back home I called my brother, and while I was talking to him (in the freezing cold), another friend drove by and offered me a ride in their warm car.

When I returned to the house I was able to get even more done, and connect with some more folks who I haven't seen/heard from in a while.

It was an amazing day, and I just love it when days like this happen. They are rewarding on so many levels. It's late, and I feel totally relaxed and refreshed.

I would love to hear about your experience with a day like this. I know we all have them from time to time, and they are SOOOOO good! Hope whenever you read this--you are having one of these days!!!
