What and Where?

Oh this and that.

Things that I have been putting in my head:

-Music: Neko Case’s “Fox Confessor Brings the Flood” – a birthday present given to me by my good friend Jake. The music is excellent.

-Books: I’m on the last story of the collected short stories of Ivan Turgenev. From what I can tell his sole subject matter is romance that morphs itself into broken hearts and crushed lives. He does one thing and does it very well.
I’m also reading “Orthodoxy Revisited”. It is a comparison and contrast of Evangelical and Orthodox doctrine. It is quite eye-opening in the fact that the two communions use many of the same words but mean dramatically different things.
Furthermore I’ve picked up a second book of short essays by the Orthodox nun Mother Raphaela and they are destroying me.

Well, that’s that.
