i'm very excited to share this saturday song with you, as it is now quite a special piece of music to me. during shannon's long day of labor we listened to a variety of music (owl city, she and him, bing crosby with rosemary clooney, and then, as it appeared things were getting closer, i switched my ipod over to a playlist of more relaxing classical music. this continued right up to the birth, and for the most part it was just background noise, until right as Quinton was emerging into this wild wide world. just as shannon was doing the final push, the ipod went to this part of peer gynt, called morning mood. and i'm not making this up - i promise - that just as the piece entered its crescendo, quin was fully born and laid on his mother's chest while we all cried like babies (except Quin). it was a beautiful moment that was given its own beautiful natural soundtrack. the moment of his birth occured right around the :50 second mark. enjoy!
a collection of words about God and life and art and baseball and football and hope and my family and my ministry and music and the immense joy in each moment of all of it. it's a record of being human. welcome.
