Did I mention that I took over 1400 photos in Texas? I have been editing the best ones and am going a little loopy over here at my computer table. I know these two of Kali are not perfect, but I love them anyway. Thought I'd share them with you. These are the kind of shots you get at 11:00 PM, after being in classes all day.

And we arrived in Austin to learn how to "Lead the Escape" in our everyday life.
Above, Wendell Moon welcoming us.
Below, Mrs. Teresa Moon, the founder of Communicators For Christ, now a part of the Institute for Cultural Communicators.
The first part of the conference was dedicated to speech classes, critiques, and a tournament. Some of the various majors offered were apologetics, interpretation, impromptu, and virtual communication. The students were able to practice their skills in front of judges and receive ballots with valuable comments and suggestions. They will use this information to refine their speeches before competition.

Kali and I are home from Masters, 2009. For the past two weeks we were in Austin, Texas, attending workshops, banquets, a talent show, two tournaments (one for speech, one for debate), eating awesome food, making wonderful friends, and really not wanting it all to end. I took over 1400 photos and will start editing this afternoon. I will probably post in batches. Communicators For Christ is a truly awesome organization! We learned so much and had a great time! It's good to be off that airplane and have both feet back on solid ground :).

This year Kali got involved with a group called Communicators For Christ. One of their goals is to teach Christian young men and women how to speak about what they believe - to anyone - under any circumstances. We joined a CFC speech and debate chapter in a nearby town and have been extremely active. Tomorrow, Kali and I will be flying to Austin, Texas, where we will be attending a Masters Conference for nine days. Learning, and applying, speech and debate tactics. Kali's majors will be apologetics and interpretation. She will also hopefully be singing "Why?" by Nicole Nordemann in a talent show next week. We will be gone a total of two weeks. We will not have access to a computer while we are gone, so it will be two weeks before you see me back here online.

Perigee full Moons come along once or twice a year. 2008 ended with one and now 2009 is beginning with another. It's the best kind of déjà vu for people who love the magic of a moonlit landscape.
