i call one of my incredible counselors about a summit.

i call david about inspiring the quorum this sunday, and he agrees. i feel relieved because he is the only one fit to give this inspirational message.

i walk the island from one side to the other side searching for a brother's apartment. i decide to give up on a visit and instead send him a letter. until i discover it's his 25th birthday today. as i walk into his building, he walks out of it.
