"Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" Mary Oliver
this is really neat! I wish I had known about it before my sermon.
awww ... now I need to go read your sermon!
oh, I didn't mean it that way, I just preached on "Peace be with you." so I just kept thinking about that...
Oh, REM! Love love love love love!
Okay, Michael Stipe and Coldplay. Close enough. I've fallen out of touch with REM. :(Perfect images for the song, too. Did you see the Chagall at the very end that I posted on my blog during a lovelorn moment last summer? ;)Thanks for posting this song. Hug.
Diane, the sermon was wonderful! I'm glad you mentioned it, even though I know you weren't trying to make me read it. PJ, yeah,and there are even better versions of the song -- I've gotten a little obsessive and downloaded all of them from iTunes. (A little?) I just read a great review of REM's newest CD. I haven't thought much about them since the early 90s, but I think I'm going to get the new tunes. I had forgotten that was the same Chagall you used, but now I remember it. There were a couple of Chagall's in the mix here.
They say (whoever "they" are) that the new REM is their best in years. I'm gonna have to get it, I think. REM is good people. Sigh. I saw them at Radio City Music Hall in 1987. Best concert ever. I was in the sixth row, and Michael Stipe was soooooo beautiful back then. (He's still lovely, but back then I didn't know he was gay and I felt more free to swoon.)I'm excited about the new B52s, too! Athens GA in the house!
Sixth row. oooh, jealous. Yeah, I'm gonna get the new CD. I read an interview with MS on beliefnet recently and he speaks very lovingly of his parents as "paragons of Christianity." Seriously -- what was with Athens in the 80s, eh?
College town, with extra kudzu? *shrug*
Maybe they were chewing the kud(zu) together. Or smoking it.
