"Not-Alone Event in Cincy" Tuesday January 13 2004

The Not-Alone: Mayhem event in Cincinnati was amazing. The whole thing was covered in a sense community, one-sightedness towards the Kingdom of God, and a righteous questioning of all coming before. Highlights and pictures soon.

Sarah Munroe goes back to Philly for school this week so last night we did dinner and a movie. The other option was to go bowling but there was some of that in the film as well so we got two for one. We saw 21 GRAMS at the Midtown Cinema after enjoying some Mexican food, which Sarah de-greased with a napkin, at El Rodeo. The film was at least as good as it's hype though to some a scene of nudity/sex contained therein might be a put off. I do buy into the idea that vulnerability can be added to characters when together in that kind of situation and in this case it was shot achingly beautifully with great meaning. Does this mean that the plot benefits out-weigh the stored mental images? As a guy, I'm not sure. Feel free to challenge me on any of this if you like. Regardless, the performances from Naomi Watts (in particular and it's not because I think she's gorgeous, Sarah said so too), Sean Penn, and Benicio Del Toro really made this movie happen in a brutal, completely human way.

I had almost forgot to lend Sarah the paperback of YOU SHALL KNOW OUR VELOCITY! when she threw a pinecone(?) at my bedroom window to get me to come back out to make sure she had the right directions to get back to Lititz. Anyway, we had a great time.

Today after working from 9:30am until 11am, I have the day off. Weeeee!
