I've been humming today's tune ever since I started Mitch Albom's book, Have a Little Faith. I'm about half through with the book, and I'm really enjoying it. It's a quick read. My dad isn't a fan of Albom--thinks his books are a bit maudlin and overly sentimental. I like them because they always leave me thinking. Come to think of it, most of the books that I've read this summer have given me food for thought--and that isn't always the case!
John Hiatt is today's artist. His song "Have a Little Faith" has been sung by quite a few artists: Joe Cocker and Bon Jovi to name a couple. I like Hiatt's piano playing and the 'rawness' of his voice. I also love the black and white film and the joy of the children in his music video.
And when your back's against the wall
Just turn around and you, you will see
I will catch you, I will catch your fall
Just have a little faith in me
I don't have to work today. The women faculty are gathering at our retired secretary's house for a breakfast brunch that she hosts every year. I love that lady. She was the glue that held our school together for years. Who am I kidding? She's still the glue that holds us all together--her influence is everywhere!
After brunch I am headed to U town to the bookstore. I miss working there, but I actually have more time to browse and read now!
This is shaping up to be a terrific Tuesday!! Hope it is for you, too!
