reading, listening, watching

In thoughts on me, thoughts on things on March 22, 2010 at 10:07 pm

what are you reading, listening to, and watching?

i love hearing about this from other people.  it seems mundane enough, but it’s such a quick, direct way of knowing what people are up to that’s not officially what they’re up to.  you know?  it’s not their job or hobby or their daily list of to-do’s. it’s what people do when they have a free moment.  it’s what’s on their mind when they’re generally at rest.  and i love knowing about that in peoples lives.  it makes me feel like i’m seeing the little fibers of their world.

so here’s a little of what i’m unofficially up to.


  • John, Chapter 18
  • Fresh Power:  Experiencing the Vast Resources of the Spirit of God – Jim Cymbala (pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle) & Dean Merrill
  • The Sacred Art of Fasting (Preparing to Practice) – Thomas Ryan, CSP
  • Animal, Vegetable, Miracle – Barbara Kingsolver

listening to:

  • mae – “seasons.”  an incredible piano piece.  and seriously, these videos are beautiful, take the time to enjoy part one and part two
  • the morning benders – “talking through tin cans”
  • the shins – “those to come”
  • ray lamontagne – “truly, madly, deeply”
  • sandra mccracken
  • fleet foxes
  • josé gonzalez
  • elizabethtown soundtrack


  • Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution
  • movies at the movies!!  well, not many.  alice in wonderland &  dear john.  every time i go out to the movies i want to sing “Let’s Go To The Movies” from Annie.  that is exactly what’s going on in my head whenever i go out to see a movie, with the dancing ladies and butler guys and everything.
  • anticipating watching The Last Song.  yes, that’s right!  i can’t wait!!  i think miley is adorable and nicholas sparks is great at his niche.

how about you?
