"when you discard arrogance, complexity, and a few other things that get in the way, sooner or later you will discover that simple, childlike, and mysterious secret known to those of the Uncarved Block: Life is Fun."

"from the state of the Uncarved Block comes the ability to enjoy the simple and the quiet, the natural and the plain. Along with that comes the ability to do things spontaneously and have them work, odd as that may appear to others at times."

it's funny how "The Tao of Pooh" speaks so much towards what i was working towards. i just didn't realize it until i started reading it.

summer 2012 will probably go down as one of the best summers i've ever had.
and i think it's because without realizing it, i was trying to get back to my uncarved block.
i was trying to open myself up to any experience i could have, no matter how simple or plain or basic it seemed.
this summer has ended up taking me on some of the most incredible journeys.
journeys i thought i would never have.
there were times this summer when i stopped. and i was just in awe.
that this was my life. that i was actually somewhere experiencing what i was experiencing.
i was humbled by the simplest things.
things that i never would have thought about before.
life this summer has just been fun. even with the ups and downs. i've let myself completely open up to life. and it has been fun. fun as hell.

this summer has allowed me to reconnect with my true self.
to make new friends. to rekindle old friendships. to let people see who i can really be.


i've had an impact on other's lives.
and i could feel that impact as it was happening. which is the coolest feeling in the world.

the amazing thing is, is that this summer is only like, half over.
there's still so much more to do.
so much more to experience.
and after that, there's the rest of 2012. and the rest of my life.
so let's just keep getting it.
