The Beginning

I’m thinking I may use this as a France journal. The wife and I will be living in Strasbourg, France from September 2004 until sometime in late summer 2005.

A little history about myself for strangers. I’m 28. Currently living in Bloomington, IN. I have been married for 2 years come this July. The wife is finishing up her Ph.D. in French Linguistics (she’s a hoot a parties let me tell you) at IU. I’m a collection supervisor for a Visa card. Um, I like movies and music and reading. How generic huh? Let’s specify: I collect live concert recordings from artists ranging from Miles Davis to Sam Bush to the Grateful Dead. Want to see my list? Go Here

Impressive huh?

Favorite directors include Kurasawa,Soderbergh, Coen Brothers, Kubrick, Spielberg, Tarantino, and Truffaut.

I read just about everything. Currently, I’m on a classic detective kick. I’ve been digging into James Cain, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett and the like. My time favorite book would have to be To Kill a Mockingbird, followed closely by The Grapes of Wrath.

Alright, I think I’m done. Really I’m just planning on using this while I’m in France to let those interested keep up with what we’re doing. Who knows if I will actually use it.

  2. Very enjoyable reading your journal posts. I am pleasantly surprised to hear how faith plays a role in your life. My faith in Jesus Christ is what I gain strength from to make it through each day and to know that God has a purpose for everything that happens.

    The hardest thing to come to terms with isv that we are not our own but have been ransomed by his blood. That He is in control.

    My family escaped from Czechoslovakia during the Soviet invasion in 1968. Lived in Austria for about four months while awaiting a visa to the United States. We spoke no english so my father did odd jobs to survive.

    I ended up getting married in the Philippines and it took two years to have my wife join me. We did all of the paperwork ourselves. She arrived in 2014. She is also a person of great faith.

    Did you drink a lot of beer while in Europe? Being Czech, it’s our national beverage

    Also your music collection is very impressive in its broadness.

    Glad you have this blog.

    Take care.
