not much this morning

Amazingly  I slept in this morning.  Yesterday I basically went into a bit of a stall physically and emotionally. I went through the motions of doing what I needed to do (bills and such).  But I felt drained the entire day. This morning I awoke late still feeling a bit that way. I think I am very glad that I will have Monday off (no ballet classes).

I bought the $100 Sony yesterday. Brought it home and couldn’t get it to work. Returned it for a full refund. After checking it in the shop bought the Akai. The dealer knocked off $50 and through in a cord. He felt a bit sheepish. I learned that he is not exactly an expert on vintage equipment I was hoping he would be.

I set up my cheapo turntable, amp and speakers in the living room and added the tape deck. I listened to a bit of my senior recital (it’s 4 tapes) and then went on to other stuff.

Dieterich Buxtehude (born c. 1637 to 1639 — died 9 May 1707)

The Chamber choir does not sing at Eucharist this morning. I have a lovely (easy) Buxtehude chorale prelude ready for the Prelude and an interesting (to me) Postlude by Jan Pieterzoon Sweelinck based on the tune “Comfort, comfort” even though we are not singing it today.

Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck - (Deventer, April or May, 1562 – Amsterdam, 16 October 1621)

I think this is unacceptable. I continue to marvel how an imaginary line on a piece of paper aids us in dehumanizing others.

20 Things You Should Know About the Bill That Could Ruin America

I chatted online with my quasi-son-in-law, Jeremy Daum, yesterday. He was very upset about this bill. I agreed with him and proceed to email Michigan Senators Levin and Stabenow my disapproval.

Here’s a good site for contacting your reps:
