:: A beautifully-written review of Marilynne Robinson's book, Home (which I've been staying up too late at night reading). One of my goals in life is to write book reviews (and books) of that caliber.
:: Another great book review ~ Marilynne Robinson on Annie Dillard's book, The Maytrees. This novel seemed slow to me at first, but in the end, I fell in love.
:: Daniel Asa Rose's interview with Annie Dillard. I was surprised to read her say, "I'm a housewife: I spend far more time on housework than anything else." As I do laundry today, it made me admire Ms. Dillard even more. Her writing is superb.
:: Andy Osenga's new EP ~ Letters to the Editor, volume II. You can either kindly pay him $$ or download the album for free. I love both his use of melody and humor within songwriting. One song is beautiful and moving; the next is still both of those things, but also quite funny. Great tunes.
:: This very-pretty blog.
:: Brewing loose tea in a French Press. I highly recommend the process. I'm currently into yerba mate w/lots of cinnamon.
:: Mars Hill Audio Journal, volume 92. This morning I listened to:
-Jake Halpern, on the ecosystem of celebrity.
-Stephen J. Nichols, on the American Jesus.
:: I'm not sure that Dancing with the Stars is worth your time, but my Mom and I will be watching. You gotta let go and have fun in life; be a geek now and then. Lots of other good (much better) TV starts up this week as well, so Johnny will get our DVR ready. I don't like being bound to the television or time slots, but I do like me some Grey's Anatomy and Heroes. And LOST, but that's not 'til early 2009 - boo.
:: I almost forgot about a brand new show that I'm dying to see ~ Spain...on the Road Again. Oh, wait. It's not showing in Houston. Thanks a lot, PBS. And I've been so good to you. Why no love?
