The other wow is a much more sad thing. I'm reading the book Savage Inequalities. It was published in 1991 or so, so some of it is probably somewhat dated, but it's still worth a read. If you've ever wondered what schools are like in other cities, you need to read this book. It makes our difficulties with budget cuts (in my district last year), seem insignificant. Just read it!
Today, I'm going to see the Mozart Requiem for my art of listening class. It will definitely be a change from Casting Crowns, but I'm optimistic that it will be a good experience. I never thought I'd even care about classical music, but I do.
I've been very interesting in literature, and I still am, but it's nice to be able to listine to music with new ears and enjoy that art as well. I'll be writing a review for Art Of Listening, so you can bet I'll be writing later if only to get things more clear in my mind.
