A Calm Storm

The blog of Sholeh Samadani Munion


Right now I’m learning how to be not selfish.

I’m learning how to cut down on complaining.

I’m learning how to study (wow, fascinating. In my senior year of university!) Well, actually I’m learning about how my brain chooses to acquire knowledge. It tends to adopt a method of “the best shortcut” of doing things, which can be helpful most of the time. When I walk down the street, I start calculating the quickest way to get somewhere…even if this means cutting through buildings. It means I summarize things in my head. My brain latches on to what I find interesting…even if that isn’t what will be on the test.

I’m learning how awesome rocky road ice cream is at 2 am.

I love 93 XRT (radio station). Some artists played recently: Smashing Pumpkins, U2, Modest Mouse, Ben Harper, Counting Crows, R.E.M., Coldplay, Flaming Lips, Doors, Depeche Mode….the list goes on.

I’m learning to appreciate just how much laughing with you lifts my spirits. How much the joy in you affects me.

Hey world, are you out there?

  1. I thought the 1st pic was of one of the light fixtures in the house…strange.

    DUDE – 93 XRT plays all that great music!?! SWEET!

  2. A little selfless warning about having rocky road ice cream at 2AM while pondering shortcuts to finishing term papers due that same morning just before final exams: you’ll have some wild R.E.M. dreams!

    Can the mystic wayfarer find within the confusion of the World any hidden treasures? Yea, he finds within the words whispered by every atom of existence a new mystery and a new path to the Beloved and becomes further inflamed with the fire of His love.

    As you might be able to tell, had a little too much ice cream, heheh… It’s late and ought to get to bed… just wanted to let you know we’re out here.
