Good Friday

Hmmmm... it seems that people actually sometimes write their thoughts on blogs. This is something I have been avoiding, but it's probably more interesting if I write things that are more personal than advertisements for my concerts and links to our wedding registry... I think my hesitance might have to do with being an introvert. I come home from class, rehearsals, or lessons, (or I finish practicing, which I do at home, since the practice rooms at BU are unspeakably nasty) and all I want to do is sit and stare at the wall, or play mindless games on my computer, such as spider solitaire. I find that knitting is also good for this purpose. Thus, the idea of communicating with another human being, even as impersonally as this, is terribly draining. I spend every remaining bit of social energy to talk to Keith, since speaking to one's fiance is quite important. However, at present it is 10:00 on a Saturday morning, and I am feeling quite energetic, especially since I allowed myself to sleep an extra hour this morning (until 7:00 instead of 6:00 as usual), in anticipation of getting up sometime around 3:30 a.m. tomorrow in order to go to an Easter vigil. This may not happen, since I will have to walk there, and I am not sure that I will be able to convince Keith to walk with me. Last night we went to a Good Friday service. My friend, Rachel invited me to her church (Christ Church in Cambridge), since they have nice music there, and as people who love early music, both of us really enjoy hearing Tallis in a church service. Then at the end, they handed us candles and sent us out to the graveyard to think about death. I think I would have been more contemplative if I hadn't been worried that my candle was going to blow out. They ran out of lampshade-like devices to put over the candles. Oh well. Hopefully I will post some more pictures soon. I want to put up some of our engagement pictures. Oh, there I go talking about the wedding again... well, not really. Maybe people can vote on which one they like best by LEAVING COMMENTS!! Yes, you can leave comments by clicking on the comments link. I would say "have a good day," but shouldn't I say "have a penitential day" or something like that? Today is for contemplating sins and what not, and tomorrow is for celebrating. I'm going to go drink some of my "penitential tea" now (the stuff I don't like, but throwing it out would be wasteful--hooray, tomorrow I can drink the kind I like again, since it will be Easter!)
