July 4th

What a great day! Around 3:00 we went to the Zoo amphitheater to see Bob Weir & RatDog. It was a whole day full of music including the Ills, Green Lime, Taj Mahal Trio, Keller Williams, and Michael Kang of String Cheese Incident. It was awesome! The cool part was the rain. Right after GL's set, it started raining. No big. It was nice. Then, it became a monsoon! It was crazy. That lasted for a good half hour at least. Then, we all made out of hiding and the bands started up again. It was one of those events that make you glad to be alive. We were there with a lot of our friends and, by the 3 person rule, we probably knew 99% of the people there! It was a great night.

However, after we got there we found out that you couldn't bring in coolers or food or drink. You had to buy your food there and water was $3 a bottle! Crazy. I guess I'm used to Norman where at Summer Breeze you are encouraged to bring your stuff with you. If there is a next time, we will be ready.

On a different note, I had a very funky dream last night. We were at a church we used to attend ages ago. It was time for the announcements and we were told that our offerings purchased some weapons for some country.

I protested.

'What about the kingdom of YHWH? What about us following the Prince of Peace? How can we be called 'peacemakers' and 'children of god' when we support violence?' The pastor came over to me. I don't remember what he was saying and I woke up right after that. It was an interesting dream to state the least.

May mercy, peace, and love be yours in abundance.
