Today I spent two and a half hours walking around my neighbourhood with two dutch men and dutch baby boy. We spoke of many things. They are both amazing people on amazing adventures with cool families. When we returned from our walks i sat with one of the men and his wife and we were […]Read more "Diversity"
Five Reasons I am a better hipster than you. 1. I haven’t bought a pair of pants ever for more than 30$ and most of the pants I currently own were found or given to me. Three of them are bright colours (red, green blue), most of them are super skinny legged and worn sometimes belted, […]Read more "Why I am the best Hipster ever. It’s king."
I played hockey from before I was 11 till i was 18. In Australia, hockey is played largely on grass and basketball courts. The ball is hard and the sticks are wood with a short curved end. You cannot use the back of your stick. You cannot use your feet other than transport. If the […]Read more "Why I could be racist."
four thousand years and still we don’t understand the complicated simplicity of human culture. What started with boat loads of brown sailors, adventurers to deserted beaches filled with strange creatures – battle after battle, other sailors landed.

You get a large laugh, and then a less big laugh. HAHA. double laughs. Last night I had the honour of sharing at a youth group. We […]Read more "The bucket Game and our future."

And he could be almost completely feminine. He could wear pink, and be sexually attracted to men, and still be […]Read more "The colour of boys and girls."
If you are getting chased down the street by gun toting extremists, hell bent on destroying you because of what you believe. The belief structures your life adheres to are sharply and quickly focused. They have to be. You can’t really um and ah with a bullet seconds away from entering your bodice. The church […]Read more "Bored and Free"
There’s this family line in the history of Jews, that were different people groups, but they shared familial blood. God kept them apart from each other, he attempted to keep them from destroying each other and almost expected them to play nice and be friends. Israel decided it wasn’t all about following God, and Judah […]Read more "If Russia is invincible why shoot a plane down?"
