lots to post about and i finally found a moment.

last Wednesday justin scored some free tickets to see Sheryl Crow at the Greek Theatre. I love the Greek. Outside, beautiful, great sound. anyways, i am not really a huge fan of Sheryl Crow but i thought she put on a great show and i liked most of her songs off the new album. She really has a lot of radio hits, i never realized. Next to us was an old drunk lady who was having the time of her life.

this past weekend was the church basement roadshow event at our church. i feel good about the organization of it. i thought the performance was interesting/successful, although i did have some critiques of it. I think it hit the crowd in different ways and i also love when something does that. We got some life changing response and some who thought it was dishonest and confusing. a good event that sparked discussion...nice.

Tonight our friends the Bowlings will come over and we will begin the discussion on whether or not we will try and find a large home to all move into together. i think there are a lot of pros and cons to the situation and I am excited to start talking about it. who knows where it will lead us...but worth the conversation for sure. Scary, risky, fun, different.

gas is $4.67 a gallon here. the solution....more localized living. Living close to job, church, friends...so that we can walk/ride bikes/roller skate instead of drive. This seems hard to do in Los Angeles.

Sunday Justin wanted to go to the Cheesecake Factory for lunch on Fathers Day and while we were waiting for our seats we saw, Jon Voight and his son, Angelina Jolies bro. even celebs celebrate Fathers Day...hahaha

I began reading Water for Elephants a couple weeks ago...so far i am enjoying it. not loving it...just not bored.

recently quite a few of my friends have been struggling with VERY strong anxiety/panic attacks/massive heart palpitations. it worries me for them. it must be very scary to have your body seemingly out of control. there bodies are telling them something...what? what are they telling them? how do they help themselves? i don't know.

ta ta for now my friends.
love each other.
