Welcome to Ryley Writes, a collection of thoughts, stories, and work from deep in the heart of Texas.

High-Five Friday: March 17

"Live the full life of the mind, exhilarated by new ideas, intoxicated by the romance of the unusual." Ernest Hemingway

What I'm working on:

Manna House, as always and always and always. I promise someday their project will actually be finished and you'll get to see it and stuff. I'm excited about what we have so far, though!

Other than, I'm getting ready to go to India in eight days! I feel like it super snuck up on me, and a am a leeeeetle stressed about, like, packing, but I'm stoked for the trip. The women I'm going with are amazing, and the more plans develop for our time in Kolkata the more I look forward to it. Once we get back, I'll be writing a newsletter/mini-mag for the church about our work there, so I'll just be in sponge mode while we're there — soaking in every bit so I can hopefully share a taste of the people and place with others. (And I'll take lots of pictures for you guys, too.)

Randoms for your weekend:

It's March Madness, you don't need randoms for your weekend. You need to watch basketball. Do what I say.
