|The Carolina Chocolate Drops|
So it's the effects of the music I'm reveling in. Minutes before settling in with the Carolina Chocolate Drops, I was finishing a discussion about the documentary Encounter Point which we were showing to students going on the Israel trip. Intimate time with families who have lost children and who are coming together for a peace movement. And there was great music in the background. If I knew more I could tell you if it was Israeli or Palestinian - it was beautiful. When the first notes of music were played on stage tonight, I sat stunned at its richness and determination, its fun and its expertise. Iris asked Mac to dance with him (Eleanor joined in, too) - there were other people dancing in the aisles, and joyful cries when a certain song would be announced (they covered Johnny Cash's "Jackson" which made Mac inordinately happy). There we all were: happy.
Too much to process - everything to remember.
