staycation begins…

i haven’t written much via a blog in quite some time. my journal has seen a few entries, but very little from what i’m accustomed to writing. i feel like i’ve been on hyper growth mode professionally…many meetings, to do’s, trip to Kenya, running about, the east coast tour, etc…all that i’m extremely thankful for, but it has left little time to process, to listen, to allow the experiences to settle into who i am.

i’ve decided to take a week “staycation” in order to be still and to let the dust settle. i’m already a few days in and those days i have not been able to write…too much racing around in my head. it’s almost like the debris from all the constant motion wants to stay in motion. what’s that called? ah yes, i believe one of sir isaac newton’s laws of motion. regardless it is what i’ve been experiencing my first few days in staycation mode. i’m hoping that the motion that has acted upon me has now paused for a moment so that rest can begin.

i’ve inserted a gallery of photos from the most recent motion, the east coast tour that jeremiah and i ventured for 2 weeks from washington dc to philadelphia to nyc to boston. it was an incredible journey meeting countless people, sharing the ctc story and experiencing the rich history of america as the backdrop to our tour. it provided jeremiah and me with an opportunity of a life time to reflect on our 13 year friendship and journey to create ctc, to listen to the wisdom of americas founding fathers, the sacrifice, the creativity, and to share all that we were learning with a ready and eager audience each day. i am in awe of where God has taken us thus far and i’m infinitely curious where that motion will continue. but for now may the rest begin for at least a few days…
