I’m at the laundromat doing one last load before I pack for camping. On top is my David Archuletta shirt. I wonder how his mission trip is going. He said he went on it not because he no longer wanted to do music, “but because it’s the feeling that I’ve felt I need to do with my life.” I really wish him the best and can’t wait for him to get back so he can tell us all about it. Did you know that while on their mission a Mormon only has permission to call their family twice a year (on Mother’s Day and Christmas)? That’s a lot of time away… I understand, though. When I was his age I also wanted to be as far away from the family as possible. Not so much anymore.
