Happiness is a Warm Gun

Actually it’s not.  It’s listening to the Innocence Mission’s latest album, My Room in the Trees.  An album that is too unbearably slow to listen to.  Where’s the pop and zazzy stuff?  Until you realize that you are moving too fast.  And that is the joy of this album.  That it forces you to sit down and listen to it.  Listen to songs of a slower, quieter, sadder, more real, more joyful life than your fast-paced whirlwind.  A slow walk through the real and wondrous world of light and leaves and Love. 

Thank God that someone out there has the eyes to see what I can’t.  And has the skill and beauty to share it with me.
