the year of Gundersen

It was the Year of Gundersen, a sort of black hole, but an enjoyable one. It was not an easy year for me: I needed company and constance, and found both in his music, which went with me everywhere. You could get into figuring out whether it's serotonin or dopamine or some other kind of chemical response, but I don't even care: it helped. 

Book Review: Travels with Charley

“Beyond my failings as a racist, I knew I was not wanted in the South. When people are engaged in something they are not proud of, they do not want witnesses. In fact, they come to believe the witness causes the trouble.” - Steinbeck

Book Review: Why Can't We Be Friends? (Joshua Torrey)

The church is uniquely those called by the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus Christ to be united with one another; but through over-sexualization, it has allowed its members to be severed one from another. By grounding her thesis in the humanity and unity found in Jesus Christ, Byrd provides the stable blocks for further discussion and application of deeper fellowship among the members of Christ's body.

Music Review: Both Ways

It's the album that I will forever remember as the pre-Peter album that encouraged me to live life to the fullest with my (currently only) four children. It's become an album that will forever be a specific moment in my life.

Music Review: Elephant Heart

This won’t be my record of the year, but I will listen to it many more times before the year is out. I don’t think we’ve seen the best Elizabeth Gundersen has to offer, and I look forward to additional singles and releases.

Music Review: Ye

Is this going to be your favorite 23 minutes of Kanye? No. Is this going to have hits that you’ll be jamming to for the next 10 years? Probably not.
