In a church I used to attend when I was younger. At a youth group meeting. I'm invited up to the front to pray over Preston, a fellow churchgoer. I press my hand on his back in a comforting fashion. I can't seem to get pass the words, "Dear God..." without tears billowing up in my eyes. Eventually, I continue, "Dear God, help him be a light to the world. We know he has internal struggles just like everyone else. Give him the strength to overcome..."

Waking up around 1:30 p.m.

Watching The Fisher King (1991).


Repotting my cactus.

Meeting with Jes at her office in Chesapeake to shop the market's search engine for houses.

Then, to Ana's house for dinner. She prepared some Basmati Rice with Broccoli and Carrots. I brought over Honey Glazed Black Beans with Onions and Peppers to complete the meal. Playing through some of the songs we learned from last night. Finishing Mr. Nobody (2009) in the living room. Pecking her nose, cheeks, and lips with kisses. I can sense her anticipation to go further but it's really late and I have to drive home.

Sleep 4 a.m.
