okay, so i was wrong… the Celtics really showed the Lakers who was boss… more about that a little later… it’s been a busy week and a half or so… i’d like to say that i was on vacation like some people, but that’s not the case… we did call that thing last week a retreat, but it wasn’t exactly restful… i ended up sleeping in spurts of maybe 30-45 minutes at a time and getting worn out during the day…

Anyway, i’ve been back since Wednesday night… last Wednesday night, working a lot, went to the lake and got some primo sunburn… did church… headed back to work and yadda yadda yadda… it’s already late on Thursday evening and i don’t have much to show for the week… so here’s a few somethings and we’ll see if i can’t do better tomorrow…

IN OTHER WORDS
to the tune of You Make It Look So Easy – Stavesacre

Simplicity by Mark Salomon

have you ever started reading a book and wondered why you hadn’t read it before?… as i’m reading through these pages, i can’t help but think of all the time it spent on that silly bookshelf over in the corner waiting to be read… and i think to myself, man, this could’ve been the second or third time i’ve read this instead of just now being my first time through… i’m resonating with a lot of the questions raised, nodding along to the lessons learned and anticipating the next chapter… i’m currently about halfway through and there are no signs of me slowing down…

also worth noting, this is apparently the LAST WEEK that it will be available at the Relevant Book Store for FOUR DOLLARS… i’ll probably end up changing the link the next time i update depending on where it ends up being cheapest…

THE READING ROOM
to the tune of If You Could Read My Mind – Johnny Cash

so i think i need to keep track of the books that i’m reading for the sake of Mark Lee’s Summer Reading Club… i have a feeling i’m going to get smoked in this thing, but who knows… anyway, here’s a list of what i’m currently reading and what i’ll hopefully be reading soon…

It All Goes Back in the Box (Ortberg)
Simplicity (Salomon) [about 120 pages left]
Character Makes a Difference (Huckabee) [about 200 pages left]
Searching for God Knows What (Miller)
New Way to Be Human (Peacock) [about 200 pages left]
At the Crossroads (Peacock)
Deliver Us from Evelyn (Wells)
The Two Towers (Tolkien)
Quiet Strength (Dungy)
UnChristian (Kinnaman & Lyons)
Prince Caspian (Lewis)
The Word of Mouth Manual (Balter) [about 110 pages left]

and the list goes on, but if we’re rational and reasonable, i think we all realize that i’ll be fortunate to finish two or three of these in the next three months… FULL LIST HERE

AND WITH THAT…

it’s time to go… you can head over to the main page and check out the Boomin’ Beyond Measure concert review… thanks for peeping that…

peace… love… bdg…
