I made it onto DJP's blog! My life is complete. :)

Keep up the good work posting Christ-honoring material, Dan! By His grace, your posts are always edifying and challenging to me.

I appreciate it when someone (like Kurt) sends me a suggestion, rather than using a the meta of a video I've found to say "Yeah, well, anyway -- look at this other music vid!"

....zzzzzing!!!

That one found it's mark!

My humble and sincere apologies for having done that in your metas on more than one occasion....

I did enjoy this video, BTW!

Thanks Dan and Kurt,

Wow. That was, um.... how do I say this the right way?

Very, very pretty. And sweet. Very, very sweet.

Also smart and musically difficult and well executed.

But wow. I need to go raid the medicine cabinets for some of my husband's blood-sugar meds... :)

Bach & Sons, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Strauss Sr. and Jr., Debussy, Chopin, Rossini, Wagner...and CAGE??? John CAGE???? Pardon the overly impassioned incredulity, but I know a girl who loved (perhaps still loves??) John Cage's works, and I used to make fun of her. In case you're wondering, this John CAGE, who did not play a single note for 4 minutes and 33 seconds, called the resulting silence a composition!!! That is perhaps his most famous "piece".

I'm glad they came "bach" at the end....

(If you don't believe me, see Wiki entry on 4'33". Sorry, Dan, but it's quicker to post a link for clarification to my own comment here than to email it to you as a suggestion!)
