dutch inspired

the first, inspired by all the beautiful churches and religious artwork there is here in europe, and the second, the view from my hotel room window and who i have been listening to religiously.

i've been in utrecht a week now, papa left today. i am by myself...in a foreign country...the independence is a bit overwhelming... i was pretty uneasy this morning, until i sat down in a park and some kids started playing in a fountain and included me in their game. they were about 10 or so, and one of them cut his finger. i remembered i had a bandaid and i helped him put it on, and i dunno, it just felt nice to connect with someone even if it was a small connection and a small conversation and a small interaction.
