From the Weekendpages.

I reserve the right to choose RAD pens and bring 7 or so around with me everywhere... because color matters. Texture matters. Speed flow matters-- and you just never know what combination the moment will ask for.
Who could refuse a moment its ink-match?

But what if you take them on the plane to Oregon and they explode from the pressure?
Keep using them.
The ink will seep into those certain places on your fingers,

places that will later trumpet the proof: YOU are a writer.
You with your man-sized sweat pants and obnoxious lack of shoes.
You with your confused future and empty wallet.
You, with the bag of avocados and the bucket of ice cream.
You You You are a writer,
and no one can make that a lie.
Have you seen your fingers lately?! Look at that: TRUTH.

Today I drove home from work with sunglasses on my head... even though there was also a hat there. What's up: I have an overly decadent FACE. So indulgent.

If you look up the word indulgent online, you will find this little gem...

No way! I then look up the words:
...But do not receive the same offer. Which is a bummer, because I would order those regardless of free shipping.

"A person who can discipline himself to fast on a regular basis in the way God has designed can resist every temptation, overcome any burden, and become free from any yoke."
Elder Bowen
Fasting with Power

Isaiah 58
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy rereward.

battle term: strong men guard the flank to prevent a surprise attack on the weaker portions of your army.

I love to wear sunglasses on my hat. I also love it when girls wear sunglasses on their hats. It's hot. Way to turn an annoying online offer into something positive! I will now try to look at pop-ups in a different light.
Love, David
