"No human, nor any living thing, survives long under the eternal sky. The most beautiful women, the most learned men, even Mohammed, who heard Allah's voice, all did wither and die. All is temporary. The sky outlives everything. Even suffering." - Bowa Johar, Balti poet.

What a way to say Goodbye!

This weekend up in GR was amazing! I was touched upon how many people came out throughout the weekend to wish me luck:) I had a great time on Thursday celebrating my good buddy Matthew's birthday, going with Becky to the Billy Idol/Def. Leopard concert blew me away on Friday (Rebel Yell!). I never thought 50+ year old men could look that good without a shirt on. Saturday was a picture perfect day at Rosy Mound in Grand Haven where sun bathing, skinny dipping, and doing a mini-hike was the high-light of the day. Sunday at Billy's was the perfect way to say goodbye to my friends and to good ole GR where I have spent the last 4 years of my life. I will miss you all so much:)

Family Going-Away Party

I just wanted to thank my family for coming out today to wish me luck on my trip that is only 4 WEEKS AWAY! woohoo! The company was great and all the cards with kind words written were touching and made me smile. I am planning on writting everyone back and sending this website page to them so they can keep up with my life over-seas.I will miss everyone dearly and will be thinking about them while I am away.
