Open Sea

That seems to be the case with d'NAers. Though we travel all over the world, we're neither here nor there. Perhaps David's moniker sums it up best: 'foreign strangers' we are.

All Christians (and indeed, all humans) are aliens in this world to a certain extent, but I can only quote from my experience, and I have felt this most with the d'NAers.

It was a joy to meet up with David and Audrey last Thursday; they leave for the USA tomorrow.

We talked about personality types (Myers-Briggs anyone?) and school CF and YF dynamics, mainly.

Between the two shores, the Love that brought us together will continue to keep us that way. Indeed, we're phase particles! (Thanks David, heheh)

Here's to you, David and Aud; may the next phase of your adventure be even more exciting and enriching than anything before this. Rock the States, but please wait for the rest of us before you sink any of the islands there!

Myers-Briggs Rocks! Well, between us 4 D'NAers, we'll definately rock the States. I'll be sure to leave the islands for you: the continent is mine!

Y'know, I really found it strange that David's personality is the same as FRANK ZAPPA.. ;)
