Everything Under the Sun is in Tune...

but the sun is eclipsed by the moon...

our family went out to take the garbage and saw the beginning the the lunar eclipse. i told the kids that God was hungry and took a bite of it.

we came inside and i sent the kids up to brush thier teeth and get in bed and told them i would be up in a minute to put them to bed and watch the rest of the eclipse. i fiddled for a few and carlo came down for something and i said "go on up...i'm going to pick out some music to listen to as we watch the eclipse." "what are you going to pick, daddy?"

what else is there to listen to during an eclipse????

dark side of the moon.

so i went up stairs and put it on...very atmospheric...perfect. i guess those floyd boys new what they were doing when they made it. we sat and told stories (the stories you just read and others about george washington ["he lives near the bridge", bella said]and martin luther king--i don't why...they asked about them)... then we just listened to the music.

the moon continued to slip away...

half gone...

three quarters gone...

almost gone...

then it hits me...the moon is going to "disappear" at about the same time as the last line of the album (well...cd).

how weird...how cool...

but it couldn't happen exactly, could it?

the lunatic is on the grass...

disappearing...

the lunatic is in my head...

almost gone...

and if the band your in starts playing different tunes...

a slice...

i'll see you on the dark side of the moon...

a sliver...

all that you touch..

a shaving...

all that you buy, beg borrow or steal...

a glimmer...

all that is now...

a shimmer...

all that is gone...

a gleam...

all that's to come...

a shine...

and everything under the sun is tune, but the sun is eclipsed by the moon...

gone.

so, what does it mean?

God digs pink floyd? you mean, it really is ok to listen to secular music??? does this in some way validate "dark side of the rainbow" ?

i don't know what it means, other than life is pretty cool when things like this happen. those little moments when it feels like God takes direct concern for your life and your loves and says "i think i'll zap that jake guy with a 'howzit?!!' and let him know i love him".

we all appreciated it. we talked for a moment...then had a prayer thanking God for His goodness and kindness and His interest in our likes and lives.

kissed and said goodnight.
