Saturday Ramblings

I’m just about to head off to a wedding rehearsal. I have been asked to do the sound and recording at a wedding tomorrow – the first time I’ve done sound for something other than a church service. Of course the wedding is in the auditorium our church uses and will use all the same equipment, so I guess it won’t be radically different. Still, it’s a little more nerve-racking since a problem here and there could really effect an otherwise perfect wedding. Anyways, I’m sure it will all be fine.

I read an interesting article on an African news site. The article is entitled “Demons Attack Kiboga Pupils.” A man was arrested and charged with setting demons on school pupils “He said the demons demanded for 300 virgin girls and cows to provide them with blood for sustenance.” If that happened in Canada I would write it off as nonsense. However, having heard stories from places that are not as “Christianized” as North America, I can see this story being true. You can read it here.

I have had two words playing in my mind for several weeks now and am still trying to figure out how to use them. The words are “small steps.” Yup, that simple. But somehow I sense I’ll be able to write something neat around that theme. So perhaps next week I’ll sit down and see what I can come up with. It’s funny how sometimes words get stuck in my head like that…

That’s all I have to say for today. That wedding rehearsal starts in 25 minutes and I don’t want to be late!

    Can I confess something to you? There’s one thing Aileen does that really bugs me. We will be talking together and enjoying one another’s company. But then, as we chat, I’ll hear the telltale buzz of her phone. And I can tell that I’ve lost her. I can see it in the look on her…
