Tonight Bryan and I had tickets to see Over the Rhine at Neumoâ€™s on Capital Hill. This band is probably responsible for our marriage, because as soon as Bryan heard that I even KNEW about them, he was in love.
They opened with Latter Days, which makes me cry whenever I hear it, so of course I had that big lump in my throat to keep swallowing down. Then, because they REALLY wanted to make me fall apart, they followed it up with I Want You to Be My Love (which I have written about before on this blog).
We had a great time, and had the added benefit of getting home early because this time around they actually opened the evening.
I spent some time updating my sidebar to reflect what Iâ€™m currently reading. I thought I would sneak in The DaVinci Code before I get to the next reading for my book club since the movie is or about to be released. Iâ€™m also curious about all the hype in the church world and the flack I hear Tom Hanks is getting for being a part of the movie project. Nothing burns me more than Christians objecting to art they know nothing about because they havenâ€™t even seen/read/heard it. So Iâ€™m reading it before I offer any opinions, if I even have any.
And as usual I have a non-fiction Iâ€™m working through as well. The Cry of the Soul has been a great book for clarifying some of the things that trigger my anger. Iâ€™m not very far into it because the first 70 pages have already given me way too much to chew on. Iâ€™m a little overwhelmed. But good things are coming of it, and I can already see changes in the way I interact with Ruthie because of it. More later.
