When I was a little kid, my family attended Forrest Heights Methodist Church. We were regulars, the sort of family who sat in the same pew every week. The church sanctuary was the first built space I had a strong affection for – the mid-century lines and combination of building materials felt right to me. I liked the light fixtures, too; they were big and stately and (to me) very church-like.
Not at all like this light, which looks like it should be hanging over Great Aunt Mabel’s kitchen table.

The Lumineers! I’ve been a fan for a few years and am happy to say that I am an even bigger fan now, after having seen them in concert. Here they are, covering the Talking Heads song “This Must Be The Place” and here’s a nice song, Dead Sea.
Oh, but maybe you stopped by to hear Ho Hey?

First of all – this trip wasn’t supposed to have been a road trip. The original plan, however, was thwarted by the impending arrival of Hurricane Harvey (no relation), so instead of a more complicated trip that included flights in and out of Austin, we opted to skip Austin entirely and drive to Colorado.*
Second – we were in my Patient Spouse’s vehicle, and he was driving.
Third – I get really fidgety when I’m in the car for long periods. (In my case, “long periods” is anything more than about an hour.)
Fourth – this is what fidgety looks like.
Fifth – aren’t you glad you don’t have to travel with me?!

*Yes, Austin isn’t typically on the route that normal people take from Lubbock to Colorado.We had events in both places on concurrent days. Also, we’ve never really been accused of being “normal.”
