“Creativity is not merely the innocent spontaneity of our youth and childhood; it must also be married to the passion of the adult human being, which is a passion to live beyond one’s death.”
– Rollo May
“Analysis kills spontaneity. The grain once ground into flour springs and germinates no more.”
– Henri Frederic Amiel
Sorry I was gone all week! I went on a spontaneous trip since Sunday afternoon. In high school, I travelled abroad for two summers, the first to Spain then the second to Italy. Spain was three years ago, and I hadn’t seen my friend from the trip, Jacob, for three years. He was in New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee for the night with 50 or so of his friends renting cottages for a party so I started by driving two hours to join them and see him. It was so great! Not only was seeing him fantastic, but his friends were all so nice and it was such a beautiful spot. That was a blast, then my friend Derek and I hopped back in the car and drove on up to Burlington. As you already have read from me many times, I love Burlington; hopefully I’ll live there for a summer or something along those lines at some point. We went to Red Rocks for my first time cliff jumping. It was a blast! I wish there were places around here where I could go do it all the time. I don’t have too many pictures from this trip, but I’ll post them soon! Night!
