"And the world stops spinning when you stop spinning, and sighs when you sigh, when you sigh. I'm coming home, so leave the light on for me. I'm drawing over the luminous veil. And when I get in I will see you all there; I'm drawing on the great exhale."

Corey - 4/25 - Meet Me At the Edge of the World, by Over the RhineI heard this duo for the first time a few months ago at a small, intimate concert venue - I fell in love with their thoughtful lyrics and balanced harmonies and care for each other. These words in particular were quite moving - "Leave behind your Sunday best, you know we couldn't care less. Out here we've learned to leave the edges wild. And stories they get passed around, and laughter - it gets handed down. Read it in the lines around a smile. Our bodies motion comes to rest when we are at last called home."

Corey - 4/22 - Sand Dollar from Baja
Corey - 4/22 - Sand Dollar from BajaBaja, Mexico is one of my favorite places in the world. In college, I took a few long trips down the coast of the peninsula, as far south as Loreto. The first trip was an art/science combo class, and I was 19 years old. Can I tell you this thing - there has been no experience in my life as peaceful as falling asleep on a handmade canvas cot, listening to the waves breath against the shore, with the stars blinking at my blind eyes. The wind whipped around the horn of the bay, and it called my name, and my sleepy head pushed my pillow off of the cot and onto the sand but I didn't care. I found this sand dollar in the Bay of Los Angeles, which is roughly halfway down the coast, on the east side of the peninsula. I kayaked with Becky across the bay and found it; it had just died. It was purple and then green and then gray and now it is the color of fine sand. I have recently thought that Baja was fading from my memory; after meditating on sand dollars, I am remembering again.

Corey - 4/20 - Days are Gone, by HaimI love this perfect album by Haim, the rad trio of Los Angeles female rockers. Every song makes me want to dance and laugh but also sit a drink a glass of wine and think about regrets and sadness. But weird - their lyrics are only interesting when paired with Danielle Haim's smoky voice and some sweet melodies and guitar licks. Look them up, enjoy the music.

Corey - 4/13 - Fossils, by Aoife O'Donovan (CD and Vinyl)Aoife O'Donovan, one of favorite singer songwriters. I bought the cd myself; my roommate gave me the record for Christmas. This work is beautiful; it is an album of mysterious loss and longing. Hear the words of Glowing Heart, a song of such quiet sorrow; who is she longing for? "If I could take back everything I ever said to you would we be fine? Would the ripples in the water taste like wine? The night is young, the air is heavy, drink up now, my love for you goes on; in the thickening of night I sing this song."

Corey - 4/9 - Boundaries, by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend
Corey - 4/9 - Boundaries, by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John TownsendThis book contains some wonderful, practical advice on setting and keeping healthy boundaries. To anyone with people pleasing tendencies (as I am), read these words - "Boundaries define us. They define what is me and what is not me. A boundary shows me where I end and someone else begins, leading me to a sense of ownership. Knowing what I am to own and take responsibility for gives me freedom."

Corey - 4/7 - Jars of Clay Debut Album + Re-issue
Corey - 4/7 - Jars of Clay Debut Album + Re-issueJars of Clay is one of my favorite bands. They've stuck with me since my Christian rock adolescence years, through a more moody late high school career, and even after a college music awakening. I have two copies of this album because the first cd got stolen right out of my car. I can't get around to tossing it - the original lyrics insert is made of a rough paper material, which is very unique for a mid-90's album. I remember listening to this album in Oklahoma when I was 10 years old, falling asleep on my Uncle Joe's couch, listening to these words of the final track  - "Blind words you call, blind words will fall", haunting words that fall into a minimal song of praise, which dissipates into 17 minutes of white noise - murmuring musicians, violins and clarinets tuning, laughs and coughs echoing in a recording studio, repeating and repeating into verses of more murmuring and silence.

Corey - 4/5 - Waking the Dead, by John Eldredge"You must proceed on this assumption: your heart is good. If it seems that some foul thing is at work there, say to yourself, Well, then--this is not my heart. My heart is good. I reject this. Remember Paul in Romans 7? This is not me. This is not me." Happy Easter.

Corey - 4/4 - 7 Wonders
Corey - 4/4 - 7 WondersI really love board games, and I am always looking to expand my collection. 7 Wonders is a 2-7 player card building game, where each player builds up one of the "7 Wonders" of a particular ancient city (you know, the Pyramids of Giza, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, etc). There is trading, and warfare, and statues, and bricks, and... am I sounding nerdy yet? I love this game in particular because whether it's a 7 player round or a 2 player round, the length of play tends to be the same. I'll be posting several more images of nerdy-ass board games, so be prepared.

Corey - 4/3 - Velvet Elvis, by Rob BellThis was one of the first books that encouraged me to ask questions within my faith. Bell shook me into a freedom that has brought me closer to Christ and his Spirit. "Central to the Christian experience is the art of Questioning God. Not belligerent, arrogant questions that have no respect for our maker, but naked, honest, vulnerable, raw questions, arising out of the awe that comes from engaging the living God."
Emily - 4/3 - The Screwtape Letters
Emily - 4/3 - The Screwtape LettersOne of the most convicting books I've read. I don't know how C.S. Lewis manages to know exactly what's wrong with me but it's amazing. This is a copy from 1958 and it has a charming illustration of Mr. Screwtape on the back—drawn by the author himself. 
Corey - 4/2 - Everybody Wants to go to Heaven, but Nobody Wants to Die, by David Crowder
Corey - 4/2 - Everybody Wants to go to Heaven, but Nobody Wants to Die, by David CrowderDavid Crowder and co-author Mike Hogan studied the eschatology of bluegrass music to mourn the death of their close friend and pastor Kyle Lake.
