Notes from the back of bus 2

April 25, 2007

Wednesday we are to travel from Graz to Salzburg for the last concert.

Our travel since we arrived in Prague has been by two coaches. Once attached to a coach the groups have become families. My previous experience with the Singing Men of Texas led me to the back of the bus and I brought Beth with me with some reservation on her part. The family that has formed around us at the back of bus 2 has a reputation for frivolity. Beth observes: “I think they thought I would cramp their humor – well it hasn’t stopped them from cracking jokes and telling funny stories. We have all laughed hard. I know the churches where they serve are blessed to have them. They are talented, caring, and passionate about sharing the Lord through their music. Be sure to thank them for all they do when you see them.”

One technical note, this post is being written on the bus as we travel. Thanks for the aircard!

Wisdom from bus 2:

What English words end in -dous?

Tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous. Also, the rare zoological word annelidous.

New photos are up this morning from the concert last night in Graz.

What I take for granted.

March 21, 2007

Today I flipped a switch and lights came on. Today I turned a knob and safe, clean water came out of the faucet. I recently returned from a place where neither of these is taken for granted yet I spoke with my wife almost every day by cell phone. I am taking a daily pill to prevent my body from contracting a disease for which the cause and cure were discovered early in the 20th century yet thousands still die from it every day.

I do not understand why where you are born determines not only how you live but often times if you live at all.

I am grateful for how I am blessed and I pray to understand how I can better help those not born as I.
