"talking about music is like dancing about architecture"

"I don't believe in Christian art or music. The word Christian was originally a noun. A person, not an adjective. I believe in great art. If you are an artist, your job is to do great art and you don't need to tack on the word Christian. It's already great. God is the God of Creativity. Categories desecrate the art form. It's either great art or it isn't. Followers of Jesus should have the first word instead of coming late to the game with some poor quality spin-off. Let's talk about things before everyone else."
That quote is one of my favorites. That's all.

I got to see an old teacher today. It was the highlight of my trip home--

Monday's the day for flying back to the midwest, seeing My Morning Jacket, driving in the middle of the night and beginning semester five in Lincoln. I'm excited for what I'm going to learn this semester.
