Yinz Aren't Going to Believe This One
Guess what I did today? I went to church. Okay, most of you probably don't realize how big of a deal that is, but I haven't ever willingly gone to a church in my life. Some of my hatred of organized religion is based on early experiences, and I admit that they're my own personal prejudices. However, I found my way this morning to the UU Church in South Hills: Sunnyhill. I almost turned around in the parking lot and drove home, but I made it in. I met many welcoming and wonderful people, and I think I'm going to try visiting the UU church on the North Side that supposedly is focused on social justice before I make any commitments, but it was an adventure for me today! Also, I submitted my deposit to attend Writing Between the Lines in Kenya next December. That's right, Kenya! I received a fellowship to the Summer Lit. Seminar programs, and I'm just so excited for the safari portion of the trip. Is is awful that I'd rather take pictures than write poetry?!
