I am fully engaged with my Tuesday afternoon routine. As I do every Tuesday afternoon, I am:
1. Working on service orders for Sunday (my primary responsibility)
2. Working on e-mails and heads up for volunteers (which affects my primary responsibility)
3. Reading something — today, it’s The Seven Pillars of Creation: The Bible, Science, and the Ecology of Wonder. So far, so good.
4. Listening to a record that I listen to almost every Tuesday Afternoon: “Days of Future Passed” by The Moody Blues. The album includes the song “Tuesday Afternoon” and is much warmer on vinyl.
Here’s a thought that enters my mind while I stir on everything else: I think my ears are getting tired of hearing MP3’s. I was listening to a 196k bit rate song yesterday and could hear the cymbals going wah wah wah wah wah wah the whole time. I didn’t like it.
Another thought: music in heaven will be perfect. We spend so much money on recording, playback, speakers, headphones, etc… in heaven, we will have 1) perfect sonic quality and 2) perfect hearing. Some glad morning…
