The good and the bad

Last night we had perhaps our best concert yet at the pavilion. Dave Frincke played and sang, and it was simply amazing. Unfortunately, there were only 23 people there. What's worse is only 11 were from our church (not counting my family). That also included Dave's lovely wife, Bethany. I appreciated those that made the effort to be there. I have no idea why more weren't.

To be honest, at first I was pretty mad. As soon as Dave started singing though... it was like he took us into the very presence of God. So it was hard to stay that way. Now I'm just depressed. I don't know if the writing is on the wall or what. I can't seem to get people interested in small groups, can't get them interested in big events. The truth is a lot of people just don't care, I know. But I don't think that's the case for everybody. I don't know. It makes me sad more than anything. I don't know if it's me, them, or what.

Anyway... it was a good night. Dave also had the very mixer I had been looking at, and he said he "loved it." This is the one a salesman advised me against (so I would buy a more expensive one).

Yeah... well... whatever.

I too was pretty miffed. The show was great though and definitely settled my mood.

I was more sad than anything I think. I don't understand why people don't go to stuff like that either - especially when I know a lot of them sit around and complain about not having anything to do.

Don't take it too personally though. I think that happens at most places.

If I hear another person complain about lack of community where ever I go...I'm going to explode.

Thanks for putting this show on though. It's nice to be exposed to people like Dave when you sit on several planning committees. :)

my mixer makes margaritas. I highly recommend it.
