from jesus make up my dying bed to lost in unfamiliar territory

I have been listening to the music of Robert Johnson and Blind Willie Johnson for the past few days. I discovered that I had not ripped all of their music to my hard drive, so I did so and then proceeded to play all the way through their music while I exercised. I do love this music.

Robert Johnson

For the the third Saturday in a row, Eileen and I worked at church photocopying (legally), collating, numbering and stuffing anthems for the choir. Earlier in the day I finished picking hymns and anthems through Easter Sunday. I just emailed the pastor, the secretary, the assistant pastor and the youth choir director a copy of this work.  It was a huge task to find anthems I could do with a shifting small group of choristers, but I believe I now have a plan for the hymns and anthems.

I also spent an hour or so cleaning the kitchen. It kind of felt like the same sort of task as picking hymns and anthems: something I have been wanting to get done.

Gates Attains New Level of Biting Candor –

I loved this quote from Defense Secretary Gates:

“….Washington, a city, he has said, ‘where so many people are lost in thought because it’s such unfamiliar territory.’ ”

and of course his recent clarifying comment about US military commitment in Libya

Mr. Gates told Congress. “A no-fly zone begins with an attack on Libya to destroy the air defenses. That’s the way you do a no-fly zone. And then you can fly planes around the country and not worry about our guys being shot down. But that’s the way it starts.”
