In The Embers

I'm listening to "In the Embers" by Sleeping at Last while reflecting upon my day and I just am having one of those extremely good days where you feel overwhelmingly thankful for good friends that you can pour your hearts out to and feel like your souls may be completely intertwined in the best way possible. Today was; homemade pumpkin spice lattes, "A Room with a View", a walk to a crummy beach,  heart to hearts, taco soup, xmen, a trip to dunkin donuts to pick up a donut for the morning ( ah sweet mornings, I love them so ), coming back to my dorm unit to cake and a nice impromptu walk with one of my college friends. It's just really nice when you realize and appreciate your friends and make spontaneous plans and live in the moment and really just appreciate God and His power, mightiness, goodness and love. I am so tired, but I'm also energized and I look forward to tomorrow and the beauty of another day. I want to live life to the fullest, I really do.

"“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practice resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms.”"

-- Henry David Thoreau
