Eternal Sunshine

My travels finished up this morning as I returned by bus from Pittsburgh, PA. And its good to be home! I've had a lot of fun playing live, but I am happy to be back in the routine of family life. I will be heading up to NYC with Jars in a couple of weeks for the Billy Graham crusade in the Bronx--where he started half a century ago. That will be a thrill.

Last night we watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind on the bus, which I had not yet seen. It delved into some intense questions of the soul, and was pretty mentally involved throughout. Definitely not a romantic comedy or silly comedy of Jim Carrey's past (for any that were wondering). The movie focused on a narrow field of characters and their struggles with relationships, regret, love, and peace. In any relationship--true relationship, whether friendly or intimate--one must die to the annoyances and frustrations of the other person. There must be an "I care for you even still" present, or else the doors swing open and closed and true, sustaining relationships are never built. I'm anxious to look at the review and group questions on Critique's website as I sift through my perceptions and those of other people.

Hey Aaron
I thought I would look up your name on the net and see what you are up to. Somehow I ended up here...and I'm glad I did. I'm going to the Philippine Islands in August and I've been a lil nervous about it. But after reading your blogs I know that God is with me. Thanks man, Shawn Stroope
