Spent time this weekend reviewing old journals and blog post entries. It’s refreshing sometimes to pause and take a look at the past for minute. While nothing can be altered, information can be gleaned from the past and help inform the future. It’s also a great reminder of where you’ve been. Whether it’s up a mountain, across an ocean, or down a long road, it all helps reset perspective and help find solid ground to stand on.

In the process of reviewing the old entries, I realized how much I enjoyed looking back at these simple status updates. They don’t dive very deep into complex topics or stories but they provide a window into past thought. In honor of these posts, below is a new status update.
