Obviously I'm playing catch-up. I've visited one church that had strings - sometimes. I'd be plenty happy to hear of others in Southern Middle Tennessee that I could visit, and perhaps find an outlet for my fantasies of actually *playing* my stringed instrument! Offline, if that's appropriate. We ma...

Can we see the concert and skip the forum? I've never read any C.S. Lewis. When it comes to fiction, I'm pretty much illiterate. :oops: Hey, Lewis wrote non-fiction too. Lots of it. Some of it pretty specialized - he was an Oxford don after all - but not all. 'Surprised by Joy' for instance is auto...

Yup. Sounds like a "can't miss" to me.

Given that Sewanee is on the road from Chattanooga to Nashville,
I think we can bring quite a few up from Southern Middle Tennessee.

A weekend featuring prog and C.S.Lewis geeks! What could be better?

Lisette!

Johnny come lately, but I have to chime in. I vote for "Run, Lisette", partly because I haven't actually heard the whole album yet! But mostly because the fugue-like choral section at the end gives me goosebumps everytime I listen closely. It sounds to my ears like a three-part fugue between the har...

> I like the "There's No Place like 127.0.0.11" stickers best. Oh, that is classic! Anyone interested in the "why" of geeks/nerds should read the essay "Why Nerds are Unpopular" at http://www.paulgraham.com (clicks Essays and scan for the title in the ensuing page). This is also a chapter in his boo...

Everytime I get it in my head to "read all Lewis' works" I find more of them. Before college I read the Narnia series and the "Space Trilogy". I didn't understand [i]The Power That Preserves[/i] at all. Then. Fast forward many years, and I decided that it was time to grok tPTP, so I took it up again...
