Well of course no one watches the videos I put up because THEY ARE NOT VIDEOS OF CUTE ANIMALS (and hey- I get it- I love videos of cute animals) but it makes me happy to have Dear Keith on the blog. You know it does.
The one of he and Scotty Moore playing together is especially lovely to me because Scotty Moore was the guitar player in Elvis Presley's band and his playing was what made Keith want to be a guitar player and well...there you go.
Also- Levon Helms? Be still my heart.
But it's a beautiful morning here in Lloyd, crisp and cool and Mr. Moon and I just had pancakes and he's taken the garbage and I've washed the dishes and all is well. I have nothing profound to discuss and nothing to rant or rave about. I've got a list of should-do's that reaches up to the sky and I'll get to work on them but I am feeling no real pressure, just a sense of possibility and I have rehearsal at three this afternoon. We're not meeting at the Opera House but at the Episcopal church rectory because there's something going on at the OH which involves a lot of children but that's fine with me. The last time we met at the Episcopal church I was in a play with a VERY staunch Christian and I made some joke about hoping that God wouldn't strike down the entire church (there was a horrible storm going on at the time) because I'd entered it and the VERY staunch Christian took that opportunity to point out that I'd probably said that for a reason and the reason was that I was secretly hoping to be taken back into the bosom of our Lord and that he, the VERY staunch Christian, was praying for me and everyone there was a bit horrified, including the pastor of another church who was also in the play.
Ah. Good times.
I suppose I will take this opportunity to say that one of the many things I do not understand about religion is why it is better to do things which are good because God tells us to rather than to just do them because we know they are the right thing. If it takes the fear of hellfire to prompt good behavior for some, I suppose that the fear is a good thing but I believe that for most of us, we either want to do the right thing or we don't care or we're crazy or just plain evil and I seriously do not think that the Fear Of God is going to stop us from doing thoughtless or crazy or evil things.
But that's just me.
Whatever gets you through your life is all right. All right.
Love From The Church Of The Batshit Crazy.
