I had about 12 dollars a minute ago. Since then I have purchased the new Bon Iver EP-- Blood Bank. In about 45 minutes I will drive to Starbucks and get a drink. Using my money wisely.
This beautiful track just started playing, "Babys". I bet this is one Mitch is in love with. It makes me want to weep and watch sun beams stream in through dusty window blinds.
Music is important. Words are important. Beauty matters. The good is real. God is real.
The mailman brought me seven books today. I start an intense reading schedule tomorrow.
I have three academic engagements to look forward to this semester.
One) I will give a paper at the Paideia Conference.
Two) I will speak on a panel of Faculty, Staff, & Students at this semester's Friday Symposium panel discussion entitled, "...until Divorce do us part."
Three) I will give that same paper to Doc Rose's DCM class in April.
The Lord gives and takes away. The Lord blesses and damns.
He Blesses Me. He has given me eternity.
Okay, "Woods" is the current track and it is blowing me away. Maybe this was the one, Mitch? You know what sounds like heaven right now? Laying down on the red rug in Mitch's room with my head on his chest, listening to this album play on the record player and examining our fingers in the light of the dying sunset.
