Wow... Just wow!

The Casting Crowns concert was absolutely amazing. Mark Hall told some incredible stories; if you haven't listened to the song "Praise You In This Storm", you need to. I was so close to tears and that doesn't happen much. My eyes wouldn't produce tears, but I was crying the story/song was so beautiful. And of course, the song Voice Of Truth is always a favorite. Definitely worth the concert.

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.
