I need to write

My posts have been heavily photo laden recently and I just realized I need to write. A very smart english teacher once told me that you need to write frequently or you'll forget how to write. I am not sure if that is true, but I better not risk it. The problem is I am not sure what I'd like to write about, so I am asking for suggestions. Please post in the comments the topics you'd like us to talk about here at the Hollow. Thank you.

Okay, got that out of the way.
Now, I do want to talk about Skating with the Stars (which I will refer to as SWTS). You all did watch it yesterday on ABC right? If not, go here and watch it now, i'll wait.

Did you watch it? Great! I, for one loved, the pairing of Johnny Moseley (Olympic Skier) and Brooke Castile (Pro pairs skater), they are adorable together.

I thought that Bethany Frankel was just tragic, poor girl and Ethan Burgess tried his darndest to make the best of her abilities, but I think she is going home.

One last note about SWTS, isn't Johnny Weir so pretty?

Moving on.....

We have been on an emergency lockdown at the Heart Institute since last Friday. Apparently some irate patient threatened us with violent action. Security is patrolling our hallways more frequently, we are required to keep the office door locked and wear our ID badges (duh).  I am all for safety, but the keeping the doors locked has been really really inconvenient. I can only hope the situation is resolved soon.

Next item of business;

Do you ever wonder about David? The psalmist?
I was pondering David today; I mean he had an extraordinary life right? Killed a giant, became king, united Israel, and was a talent musician. When you look at the big picture of David's life though, he is a lot like us. Even when his life was in shambles, David had the wisdom to rely on God. I pray for that type of wisdom, a lot.

Today Employee Health and Wellness sent this Psalm in our Spirit Lifter e-mail; As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday I think this Psalm is so appropriate.

Let all that I am praise the Lord; 
with my whole heart, I will praise His holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins and heal all my diseases.
He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies. 
He fills my life with good things.
Psalm 103:1-5


  1. That Psalm is absolutely PERFECT!!!

    I love that you're a figure skater :) I want to see some pics/video of you doing your thing!


  2. This is hard to believe, because I've always been a huge figure skating fan, but I didn't watch Skating with the Stars. :( I did watch the one Fox broadcast a few years ago, but this one didn't quite call me in. Although now I'm sorry I didn't watch it - so thanks for the link to watch it on-line.
