My Ears Are Ringing Already

Posted at Aug 4, 2011 1:59 pm

I just realized we have three musical nights ahead of us this weekend.  Instead of our usual pizza fare somewhere on Friday night (either Flying Pizza, Dewey’s, or the Works), we’ll be heading up to the Courseview patio grille at the Golf Center.  Hopefully it won’t be too hot out because we’re going there to listen to friend DJ Bernie B’s smokin’ sounds.  Then Saturday evening instead of our standby date at the movies, we’ll be trading in Bruce Willis for another outdoor concert with headliner Bruce Hornsby.  Our son invited us and we couldn’t say no to him or Mr. Hornsby.  Come Sunday, I have to admit we won’t be in church for a change.  We’ll be traveling to Wickliffe, Ohio,  to go to the Fest –   http://www.thefest.us/ – and will be listening to contemporary Christian bands all day.  One of the acts, Blessid Union of Souls   – http://www.blessidunionofsouls.net/   – is especially near and dear to our hearts for many reasons, and we can’t wait to join thousands of others  to watch and hear them play.

Yes, my ears may be ringing when it’s time to get back to work on Monday.  But music really does do a heart and soul good, doesn’t it?  In Aldous Huxley’s words, “After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music. ”

Anything else in the works this weekend?
