talking a lot about therapy = you think you need it


And that might not be all bad.

So I was in Santa Fe Tuesday through Thursday for a conference with a bunch of counselors, psychologists, social workers etc. It was really enlightening, but like I said, getting that internal about ways to help people really makes you reflect on your life and what you're going through.

I'd love to outline everything for you, but apparently travel either made me come down with the worst case of allergies I have EVER experienced or I am sick yet again. I'm hoping for the allergies, but I've yet to find anything that works to get rid of that. Fatigue and sinus pressure make me not very happy.

So we wandered around Santa Fe when not in the conference and it was pretty cool. Of course everything is so ridiculously expensive it was hard to stomach. Some guy tried to get Tracy to buy a pretty expensive necklace (by no means the most expensive in the store I am sure), I gazed upon a $70,000 4x6 photo for a couple of minutes and overall it was a good time.

The coolest thing was the Loretto Chapel staircase which I was totally enamored by. You can read the story about it on the wiki I linked to. The engineer in me that is rooted pretty deep still wanted to figure that out, but instead I just stood there in awe and wonder. There is something about things that are seemingly miraculous that draws me in. When I was in Costa Rica last year, I was enthralled by The Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels which had healing spring waters. It was the same experience with the Loretto Chapel, suddenly I felt like I was on Holy Ground. I've got more to say on that, but it will have to wait for a post about Rob Bell's Velvet Elvis which I just finished.

I've got a long list of blog topics to hit up, so hopefully I'll find time to be writing this next week, or my list is just going to get longer. I suppose that is the upside to me being in a very internal state, I'm thinking too much for my own good and content comes spilling forth.
