something is coming that is meant to be

-Going to see my dance friend Brenda perform her amazing electronic/movement piece for her Masters of Sonic Arts at Queen's. It was something that's very hard to describe, but I'll try. She had created a program on her computer to take the sounds she made and distort them in amazing ways and she controlled all this while singing and dancing through little buttons attached to her outfit. Amazing. It was all about the quality and power of a voice, and she ended it by saying, "Something is coming that is meant to be." It was phenomenal.

-Sitting in a coffee shop with eight or so teenagers from the church and catching up and talking (all at once!) and thinking of how close I've become to them.

-Finding a Walter Brueggemann book among the proliferous self-righteous, pop-prosperity, Christian drivel (can you tell how I feel about it? ha) at a Christian bookstore and feeling like it was a needle in a haystack. It was 50% off, so it's mine. It's called Texts That Linger, Words That Explode and is all about prophetic writings in scripture.
