Things in October, and the Great Wide Open video

Significant events this month:

*Reed turned 10 months old on 10/13/10

*I turned 34 years old on 10/10/10

*I was able to celebrate my birthday with Bill by going on a snorkeling trip to Malaysia

*Today marks the longest I have lived in one place (175 days) since May of 2005 when I began this nomadic lifestyle.

I wanted to share a short video that was made by a friend at UNC who has an interest in adoption stories. She heard about us while I was still in North Carolina and asked if she could focus one of her assignments for her photo journalism class on us. We think she did a great job!

"But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
To know the pain of too much tenderness.
To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
To rest at the noon hour and meditate love's ecstasy;
To return home at eventide with gratitude;
And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips."
-The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran
