an odd day ... we walked at seven so we had sun ... so we walked the path i haven't walked for maybe six months ... it was as i remembered it ... but i forgot to look for the deer leg in the tree ... how could i ...

a good part of the day was spent punching numbers into LibraryThing ... which would allow me to add books but would not allow me to see any lists of the books i'd added ... so i'm over a thousand now ... that's right ... i now know that i have more than a thousand books ... and i've only done those at school and those in this room ... the bedroom books fill four sizable bookcases ..

in between these sessions i'm finishing kot's book on wilco ... it's really good but hovers just a bit away from a deeper consideration of the band's or tweedy's sense of the music ... also reading on in jacob's room and huck finn for class on wednesday ... in-service on racism for tuesday

I conclude that I've learned this, if little else: Faithfulness is among the few things that truly matter -- in marriage, in parenting, in work, in religion.

Paste Magazine :: Review :: Wilco - Kicking Television: Live In Chicago

speaking of which ... an unscientific poll of the few seniors who came to class today (it's the senior "goal holiday") reveals that Wilco has absolutely no place in contemporary youth consciousness ... they never heard of them ... it came up as i was wondering if the Empire (theatre) in Jacob's Room ... where jacob, fanny and nick converge ... is the same Shepherd's Bush Empire where tweedy & company had a wild concert back in 97

How the Kingdom Comes - Christianity Today Magazine ...
So Christians are not called to make holy apparel, speak an odd dialect of spiritual jargon, or transform their workplace, neighborhood, or nation into the kingdom of Christ. Rather, they are called to belong to a holy commonwealth that is distinct from the regimes of this age (Phil. 3:20?21) and to contribute as citizens and neighbors in temporal affairs.

just had the thought that since anyone can now browse my books ... perhaps anyone might see a book s/he would like ... and i might then give lend or sell such a book to anyone ... might be a good way to weed out the unwanted ... i could create a "want it?" tag ... for the ones i'd most easily part with ...

seems i'd known about LibraryThing for a while ... then i forgot ... then it was mentioned on one of the blogs i read ... so i returned and signed up ... and right now i've got 583 books listed ... it's a beta program and suffers from periodic slowness and the occasional crash ... but it has a very bright future i think ... a wonderful toy and tool for anyone with many books ... and i've added that "random books" thing down below just to see what it does ...
