God is faithful. Always.

Father, you love me and sing over me. I am the apple of your eye. You were(are) excited about the plan for me when you made me. You made me to be me.

You are always faithful, and you love me.

"Resplendent" is a word too, of course.
Fragile is a word that comes to mind when I think of Sufjan Stevens's music. Pretentious, too. And child-like in that way (and others: in his love for repetition and play). Oh, playful is one too.

"Shriven" is a word. So is "wend."

("Shriven means to absolve of a sin; "wend" means to make one's way to a decided location, but along a winding or roundabout route.)

How Andrew Feels About the Same Three Dang Songs Begin Covered and Sung Over and Over and Over Again to Celebrate Jesus' Birth

This post will one day be written. It is about how I hate hearing the same songs over and over again each year. As if mankind stopped writing Christmas songs in 1962.

I hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate, hate it.

To Chase a Whale

I have a new YouTube account. Here is my final project from this last term:


Is there a word for the little humming noise people make before they say "bye" on the phone?

My favorite songs on the new Fleet Foxes CD are tracks six and eight.

When you drag your walker, doesn't that kind of defeat the point?

Animal Noises

This, from the Wikipedia definiton of "onomatopeia":

"...a word or a grouping of words that imitates the sound it is describing, suggesting its source object, such as "click," "bunk", "clang," "buzz," "bang," or animal noises such as "oink", "slurp", or "meow". The word is a synthesis of the Greek words όνομα (onoma, = "name") and ποιέω (poieō, = "I make" or "I create") thus it essentially means "name creation", although it makes more sense combining "name" and "I do", meaning it is named (and spelled) as it sounds (e.g. quack, bang, etc.)."

Question: What animal says slurp?
