School is ready to start and the WNBA playoffs have begun. Summer is over :-(

On the other hand, College Briefing (a huge camp at Forest Home in Cali) is just around the corner. WooHoo! Anybody out there gonna go?

It has begun. I bought my books today... Here's the shocker: the bill is a little over $75! I think that's the cheapest ever. Two weeks from today I start in my first semester of Biblical Hebrew. Scary and exciting.

So much for stretching out the summer... If I'm strong, I'll wait until Monday to start studying :-)

Well, I gotta say, the Getty Center is cool. Awesome architecture. Lots of variety. Fairly priced food that actually tastes good. Can't beat that! My favorite collection is the impressionists--love those Irises! I left with a cool poster of Christ Entering Brussels and a piece of the stone used in the buildings. If you're in the Los Angeles area, I would recommend a visit. It's a nifty way to get culture, for free!

Today was registration packet stuffing. This is a sure sign that the Fall semester is about to begin. I am putting off buying my books though--trying to stretch out summer.

Started reading Centering Prayer, by M. Basil Pennington, yesterday. I'm nearly half way through. One of the best quotes in the book is from Dom Chapman, "Pray as you can, don't pray as you can't." I'll need to ponder this one.

Nothing much to say today. I've spent the entire day pouring over crosstabs, looking for significance--statistical, not life mission. On the other hand, tomorrow the team here in the Biola University Registrar's Office heads off on a field trip to the Getty Museum. This should be cool (the art, not the weather). Anyhow, I gotta go...
