Photos Update: I recently took a trip home to help my dad replace a ceiling that was damaged by a leak in the plumbing. This was my first good opportunity to put my new Habitat AmeriCorps skills to work off the job site, and it turned out pretty well aside from a few glitches...like a whole piece of drywall falling out of the ceiling and landing on my dad's head followed by a drywall-T (a.k.a. “deadman” a.k.a. “preacher”) falling into his face, yet somehow he kept his cool in spite of me laughing at him and the two of us got it finished in time.

Random fun in the city...Photos update: We wanted to take some pics of an amazing sunset, but got there a little too late, so some of us were responsible and returned a discarded shopping cart from a parking lot. Click here for more thumbnails of full size pics.

Dream notes 4.6.08
I had a bizarre dream the other morning. I discovered I had the ability to swim threw the air. My arms could kind of connect and push off of the fabric of space, and so I could propel myself through the air by grabbing fistfuls of space-time. It felt sort of like touching the surface of water. However, while all this was going on, my alarm clock radio (set to the local NPR station) started going off and a story about Maya Angelo looking back at her life was playing in the background of my dream. I was somewhere swinging on invisible space fabric between skyscrapers downtown when suddenly I began to hear Mrs. Angelo describe how she got her name and how she felt about God.
