July 23: Music
Church this afternoon for evensong. It may take a two-year-old for me to enjoy music. Instead of the review I'm going to write, or the difference in the way I would have played that phrase, or the undeservedness of X's career, or the ways in which Y outclasses me, or my fears and hopes for Z, or even how to jam this particular sound into a sloppy container of words- all I've got left is listening with one ear while the other stays alert for insurrection. Take Me Out to the Ballgame overlapping the anthem; Elmo's World inserted in the prayers.
