I never meant to let almost 10 days elapse between posts – really, I didn’t. But it happened. I can’t guarantee that this week will be any different, but since I have a few minutes this morning, I thought I’d share this little bit that kind of goes along with my “Vicarious Thanks” post from a couple weeks ago.
My friend John and I had a rather spontaneous conversation on Twitter last night regarding Mary Chapin Carpenter’s “I Am A Town.” It was a song that I was kind of late in my appreciation for as I didn’t recognize its simple elegance amidst the more up-tempo songs on Come On, Come On. All songs really are poems set to music, but I feel like “I Am A Town” in particular feels poetic and I mentioned that in my reply to him. So many times, when you mention a celebrity in a tweet, you don’t ever get a response. This time, however, was different. This is what I woke up to today.
As another friend of mine always says when a celebrity tweets back at him, my work here is done.
