This is a picture of the ranch i snapped yesterday. Summer was around the corner. This week marked the first complete week of school for Caleb since he was diagnosed in April of 2012. That’s a pretty long time for normalcy to return. We also were encouraged to hear that the most recent bone marrow test came back negative. This is really the third or fourth negative test since diagnosis. Caleb really has not had a positive bone marrow test since the first diagnosis. We are extremely encouraged that God has given healing. We are trusting Him to finish the testing that we are going through.mountain

In her foreword to the 2004 edition of Mircea Eliade’s Shamanism, Wendy Doniger states that, ‘…myths (and, to a great extent, rituals) retold and reenacted in the present transport the worshipper back to the world of origins, the world of events that took place in illo tempore, in that time”.’³ There is, in other words, a rupture in everyday, linear time and its replacement with the ‘supratemporal’. This seems especially valid for describing highly formalised rituals that concern intrinsic aspects of existence – like death. While the wake had begun the rent in the ordinary, three gagaku musicians at the funeral itself (two bamboo flutes, one shō, the phoenix-harmonica) ripped it right open.

Another important role that bikes offer is the recreational role which includes activities like touring, mountain biking and sports. On …

What else? Most of the logo t-shirts are out of stock and I’m ordering more. Soon. Not as many color options. I’ve got a new logo for a t-shirt that’s going to be rad.

I received today a big fill-in order for jerseys in both the two styles – lots of long sleeve thermal jerseys, club cut short sleeves, and race cut short sleeves. And shorts in bib style and non-bib.

We will start by looking at the performances that this …

All But My Life by Gerda Weissman: a Polish Jewish woman loses her family in the Holocaust and survived against all odds. Her story is important. She details how she survived and it’s a harrowing experience. But the book was a little too long and drawn out. It has a surprisingly happy ending.
