... i went to church on sunday. it was one of those contemporary praise and worship type of churchs, the kind i grew up in. with loud music, people dancing, a deep bass guitar and an electronic keyboard. it's a rock band where the main message was love.

i've been going back to ballet class again. which is good because exercise is a keystone habit (one of the habits that lifts up your entire life), but now i am thinking of going to dance camp, even though i had originally decided not to go.

basically this has been a really big expanses year, but we can also consider it a year of big experiences.

i've joined a young adult book club, and it's kinda awesome. it's the most hip and awesome book club i've been. actually i've only been to one other, and it's a science fiction book club and that... was not hip.

i write a lot in my head.

I like churches that are about love. I'd belong to one myself, but there's two major problems.

One is, once you dig deeper, in *all* of the churches I've seen here, under the fluff-talk about love, there's a very clear "us vs them" kind of thinking, where certain people are seen as "sinful" and thus deserving of eternal torture. I'm sorry, but I ain't buying messages about loving your neighbour from anyone that believe in hell.

Second, I plain don't *believe* in any deity. Infact it baffles me to some degree that anyone could possibly believe it. I know some people do, even some awesome and smart people. But it's about as baffling to me as quantum physics.

I do think you should dance. I've never seen you dance, but I've heard you talking about dance, and I've seen the pictures you take. There's a passion in the way you talk about it that I think i've otherwise only seen when you talk about Andy.

That's enough to let me know that you love dancing.
