Kids With No Homes.............

We were recently asked to help out with this thing called the Heart Gallery. The Heart Gallery is a photo exhibition of kids in the foster care program that need to be adopted into permanet homes. At the very least go check out their website. It really rocked me thinking about these kids. It made me want to bring one home! Anyway this coming Thursday we will be playing a little music at this show. We'd love to see any of you that are close enough to make it out. The invitation is to anyone that wants so just call and RSVP. Here's the flyer:

If you can't read the number to call here it is: (714) 940-3376
We also get the chance to meet the kids before so I will surely be telling those stories!

Modern Technology and Worlds Apart

On my drive in to work this morning I was thinking about the amount of miles it travel everyday to get to work. Then I got to thinking that back in the days where there were no cars or busses or trains or airplanes this trip would have more than likely taken all day long. At least many hours. That got me thinking about the move from Portland down here to So Cal. If we had made a move like this back then we may never see our friends and family again. All communication would be reduced to a very slow mail service.

So it's interesting that we have all of this technology that puts us right at the fingertips of all of our friends and family but we're still so far apart. I guess as I was thinking about it I felt the challenge to make more effort to be closer to the people that I love and that love me. Not only that but to be closer to the people that I am with all day and the people that live right in my neighborhood. We have the means to be at a friends house in moments in comparison to what it would take without the technology of today. Even the small things like a phone call can make a difference in someone's day or even an email that is so much more instant than sending mail through some crazy guy that has to hike for days to get your mail to where it's going.

It is sad to me that with so much advancements in communications and travel technology we are all still worlds apart............
