This has been a nice weekend thus far. We had friends in town from Sacramento. They came out Friday night and stayed with us. A good friend in town watched Pax after he was down so that we could go out to dinner like normal people. It was nice. I almost didn't know what to do with myself.
Paxton has been sleeping fairly bad for several weeks now. Part of it is that we're in sleep training, so we're all re-negotiating our expectations; part of it might be something else like teething, new developmental stuff, etc. But he did okay the night they were here.
It was fun showing them around the city, grabbing some Blue Bottle Coffee (it's been a while), walking Golden Gate Park, talking politics, religion, church, development and how people change, vocation, ideals, and actualities.
I am often reminded (in conversations with friends like these) that the road of imagination and goodness and actualization is often a difficult road to walk. It is much easier to make money and just "vegg out" in life, falling "victim" to the American Dream, Canadian Dream, Europen Dream, whatever. Being the change we want to see in the world is much more difficult. Yet it comes with its own rewards from time to time.
