Off to Fayetteville

Today I'm headed to Fville. I've not been there since last March, for Crissa's wedding. This trip has no other purpose than to see folk. I felt bad through most of 2004 that I couldn't get up there. And around the holiday I promised some of my friends and quasi-families that I'd get up there in January or February. I'm really looking forward to conversations, favourite restaurants, lovely drives, and renewing my small-progressive-beautiful-town bug. Fville is the town that changed me pretty dramatically in my 21 1/2 months there. I've long thought it is as close to paradise as I've experienced (just wish I'd had a social life there).

February is usually my busiest time of the year other than the summer. And this February has ended up fitting the pattern. Next week I've got youth camp spring planning in Austin, Jacob Zimmer is coming to visit, and I'm attending a Peace Conference here in Dallas (one of like four things that weekend that I've had to choose among). The next weekend is our first adult retreat of the year. I've been working on this event for months. The next week is back to Austin for Kevin Mitchell's wedding. And the next weekend to Oklahoma to spend my birthday weekend. Plus all the usual meetings, programs, etc.

So even though I've got to drive five hours today, I'm looking forward to a few days away before this crazy month begins.
