I am home on Saturday night because I need to rewrite some chapters of my book, and I didn't get around to it on vacation like I had hoped to.
Some things I partook of this weekend so far that I enjoyed:Rabbit Proof Fence, which was devestatingTop of My Lungs, Natalie Goldberg's book of poetry which was long out of print and now reissued. I bought a used copy via Half.com. Good ol' Natalie!Cafe Tacuba's Cuatro Caminos, which starts out sounding like a Mexican Pixies (which, given Black Francis/Frank Black's prediliction for the country, makes sense), and ends up...somewhere entirely else. Beautiful stuff. Wish I knew what they were singing about.Barbara Manning's 1212, which, next to her debut solo album, is one of my favorite albums of hers, or anyone's. Such great songs, sweet singing, great ideas. I love story albums, and this record centers on the tale of an arsonist...I hadn't heard this in a while, so it was nice to go back...
Drove out to Jersey today to see Dad and Sally...he gave us oil paintings to take home...he's getting really good!
Sally is in love with a priest. This is not the first time...
