Sing Me Back Home

I'm not a crowd person. I can talk to just about anybody, but if you put me in a crowd, I'm a wallflower. I just got back from my little hoorah meeting in Dallas today & I'm incredibly happy to be home. The whole trip is like one big frat party. This trip puts me in an odd frame of mind. I realize that I don't fit in. I get along with everybody at these things & for the most part I try to be sociable but at the same time I realize that I don't belong there. I like the fact that I'm different from the crowd, but at the same time nobody likes to be an outsider. Oh well.

I do like flying, however. There's just something about hearing a harmonica solo through the headphones that takes you over the clouds.

I finally finished reading Blue Like Jazz on the plane ride home. I probably do this every time I finish a good book, but I think I may have found another favorite. It encapsulates many things I believe about Christianity & opens my eyes to new ideas & puts things in a new perspective. I want everyone in the world to read this book.

Five Favorite Songs of the Day

Sing Me Back Home-Merle Haggard

What Can I Do For You?-Bob Dylan, Fox Warfield 1979

The shows at the Fox Warfield in 1979 were the first concerts where Bob played Christian music. He is met with both boos & wild applause. They were some of the most impassioned concerts of his career.

Black-Pearl Jam, Live on Two Legs

It Must've Been the Roses-The Grateful Dead, Dick's Picks Vol 17

When He Returns-Bob Dylan, Massey Hall 1980

You Are My Face-Wilco, Sky Blue Sky

Happy Thursday, friends, it's good to be home...

I'm glad you made it back safe and sound! If it means anything, I love how your different from every other guy I've met...it's why I fell in love with you.

I'm glad you're back, too. Emily said Bob was in Dallas this week, too. Now, I'm intrigued by "Blue Like Jazz".

Andy, I ordered "Blue Like Jazz" last night and I'm looking forward to reading it based on your recommendation.
