Flowing Waters

I am calling this blog my, "New Approach at Blogging". The past 4 days have found me in new settings, that invoke memories. I left Antioch in the early hours of the morning (4:45 am) east-bound for Provo, UT. I call this new blog "flowing waters" because such has resembled my thoughts on life and its situations lately. Sitting in church, class, and other overwhelming 'social' events have made me feel as if I were sitting in a stream of flowing waters, being tossed to and fro. Viewed in different light, moments of socializing (after 2 years of zero contact to the outside world) have cooled otherwise plaguing sores that come when a person's social interaction is minimal with his/her peers. But most recently and most applicable, is the refreshment that comes from the "flowing water" of school and secular education. Which, once again applicable, is why I am even writing this blog. 

I am enrolled in two classes this summer semester: American Heritage 100 and Humanities 101. Both classes have relatively "bad rep's", but so far (after one class period) I find them both refreshing. For my HUM 101 class, we received the assignment of blogging, 3 times /week, on different subjects. I will limit all blogging activities to these purposes. So, to all you followers out there, you will get to experience the Arts through my eyes for the next 8 weeks...and hopefully see them through new eyes of your own.

P.s. I typed "Humanities" into Google Image and this picture came up through the search engine. I agree, Google Image. I agree.

  1. I like your "flowing waters" imagery. Good stuff! Given that the word "education" comes from the Latin word "educarri," which means "to draw out," I wonder how you conceptualize your relation to the waters.

    Are they flowing INTO you (i.e., being put there by others)? Or are they flowing OUT of you (i.e., have been there all along, but are now being drawn out)?
