...I'm applying for re-admission to NBS for the continuation of the Master of Divinity program there. Hopefully I'll be able to make my way back up to Washington State before the year is up, but I have a feeling I'll end up there one way or another. An omen? Maybe. Not going to say one way or another.
Speaking of omens, you should read The Alchemist (Paulo Coelho) for an interesting tale of destiny, fate, and omens. It's short, and if you like a good philosophical novel, you will not be disappointed. There are some things to ponder, and some other things that are simply not true, but, hey, it's a novel. Whaddya expect? It's an enjoyable read, so go read it.
