Grace On Tap was enjoyable last night. Julie's music in particular always strikes a chord in me; it was part of the inspiration for a poem a couple of years ago. Glad cow was able to stop by for a bit, too.
Lunched at La Puerta with Nate today. Been too long since we caught up, and I felt as if I was more deliberate about listening and engaging than I have often been. Relationships take work.
The exodus of my LiveJournal friends continues. One of today's defriendings was personal, and thus more unpleasant. That said, I'm continually learning and having reinforced the simple truth that I cannot make friends or keep them by sheer force of will. People are and must be free, or else grace isn't grace and love isn't love. Having those things be true more than makes up for any losses.
