Greetings! I come to you this evening from a motel room a few miles from my lay ministry retreat. I am luxuriating in free wi-fi, ripping a CD and blogging, all at once. Anyway, our questions of the week are:
Who? Dr. Walter Taylor of Trinity Lutheran Seminary -- our visiting professor this weekend. He's a great friend of our program, and a very engaging speaker. And he made me not hate Revelation today.
What? k.d. lang's "Hymns of the 49th Parallel" -- the album I'm loading into my Nano. And Diana Krall's "The Look of Love."
When? Around four o'clock tomorrow -- when I'll finally be home with my family, two- and four-legged.
Where? In bed -- where I am right now.
Why? Because I am too middle-aged and weary to go out partying with the gang tonight. There's a nice restaurant in town with classy weekend piano or guitar at the bar, but it's one of Fellow Traveler's and my favorite places -- one of those relational milestone landmarks -- it would be depressing to go somewhere like that without FT, in my guise as earnestly nerdy, sexless singleton.
Bonus: How? Not easily -- how I'll sleep with a noisy motel heater rattling away, and nattering others making merry in the hallway.
