i got soul

-Walking outside my door to run to the grocery store and being blinded by the large, bright sun. Living here really makes you appreciate the sun. I just stopped and stared at it, basking in its warm glow for a minute.

-Watching a college student playfully shuffle through the golden autumn leaves on the ground.

-Having a local Belfast newspaper write a little article introducing me to the community. Well, really I just sent them my responses to some questions, but it's nice to be asked all the same. You can see the text of it here. It made me a little self-conscious, but also feel welcome. My favorite part was that they had asked me what music "always makes me dance" and I said the Killers, and then they quoted a Killers song (pretty much) in the headline: "She's got soul, but she's not a soldier."

You are currently my most famous friend! I'm so proud of you and I have this really great feeling that because of this article you will now meet Glen Hansard...I don't know why but I think it's going to happen. And as always, you've got a lot of soul!

Great to catch up with your blog again - sorry it's been so long. The newspaper article is excellent. Glad you're over the chest infection etc. And I still have plenty of NZ contacts for whenever you're ready for that missionary adventure. That's what I wanted to be as a child as well :-)
