DISCOVERIES (2009)

Yeah, yeah, so the fever of list making has finally hit me. 

DISCOVERIES IN MUSIC

Owl City

Lady Antebellum

Jack’s Mannequin

Seabird

Barcelona

Interestingly enough, I owe most of those discoveries to Joe Ben, who is always ahead of me in discovering great music.  Thank goodness he’s the type of guy who shares.

Song that brought me to my knees: “How He Loves” by the David Crowder Band.
And I can’t let this post go by without mentioning Steve, the computerized drum kit made by Bwack, and one of the songs off the David Crowder Band’s Church Music CD called, “God Almighty None Compares.”  You can see Steve in the upper center of this video and you will enjoy some of the best guitarmony I’ve heard in a long, long time!

DISCOVERIES IN BOOKS

The Dune series by Frank Herbert

The Shack by William P Young (led to an incredible moment in my life)

“Leaf by Niggle,” from Tales of the Perilous Realm by JRR Tolkein

Tales of Beedle the Bard, by JK Rowling (these really are great kids’ stories)

DISCOVERIES IN MOVIES

Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation, Avatar)

JJ Abrams rebooted Star Trek and I LOVE it!

Boondock Saints I & II (thanks, Green Onion)

Video that made me laugh out loud:  David Crowder Band – Twitter Will Kill You

DISCOVERIES IN TV

I really miss Chuck.

24  Just started watching this year, thanks to Joe Ben… and Season 7 is all I’ve seen.

A show I loved, Battlestar Galactica, aired it’s last episode (though spinoffs abound) this spring.

Another show I loved that was well acted and written, Kings, did not make it to season 2.

DISCOVERIES ABOUT HOUSTON

It really can snow in Houston and it can snow two years in a row.

You can be completely covered (with just your face showing) in near freezing temperatures, and mosquitos will still attack you.

DISCOVERIES ABOUT MYSELF

I do like wearing hats that do not have team logos/company brands on the front. 

I love taking pictures and I hope to continue to learn and to take my photography to the next level.

I enjoy being female (hence another hat and purse purchase earlier today. I still blame Mish).

Heartbreak is a painful experience, but it isn’t fatal or final… and I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all.

Hope is still a tattoo-worthy word.

Courage is a lot scarier than one might think but worth every drop (weather that be blood, sweat or tears) it requires of me.

Going with the flow is a lot less exhausting than fighting change.

I am stronger than I think I am.

I have a long way to go, but I am slowly but surely moving forward.
