“I find that Holy Week is draining; no matter how many times I have lived through his crucifixion, my anxiety about his resurrection is undiminished-I am terrified that, this year, it won’t happen; that, that year, it didn’t. Anyone can be sentimental about Nativity; any fool can feel like a Christian at Christmas. But Easter is the main event; if you don’t believe the resurrection you’re not a believer.”
                                                                    -Owen, in A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving

i hear ya, owen.

    no, my award hasn’t changed yet, and i don’t know if it will. i decided that duke’s field ed program probably balances out PTS’ tuition grant, and the financial situation was the only thing holding me back. anyhow, it feels like it’s right. i think i knew that all along, but i just didn’t want to say no to a school. thanks for talking to me about it, you helped a lot 🙂
