  5. Eli and the Thirteenth Confession: Laura Nryo. A great gap in my musical listening... I've never listened to a Nryo album in my life, but hearing so many people here praise her, I finally listened to Eli, and it's wonderful! What a great voice. I'm going have to listen to the rest of her albums.

    At Play in the Lions' Den: A Biography and Memoir of Daniel Berrigan by Jim Forest. Just happened to be re-reading this book, and with the current events, it's more timely than ever. Berrigan's life was totally committed to peace & justice, never allowing institutions to control him, but always striving to live a free and encouraging life.

    Last of the Old Guard by Louis Auchincloss. Nice novel by Auchincloss, a writer that I discovered this year. Never thought I would like his writing as much as I do, with his concern for wealthy, old families of the upper class New York, reeking of Boarding Schools, law firms and loveless marriages of convenience, all written in that "New Yorker" style that most East Cost writers seemed to have from that era. However, he turns out to be much better writer than I imagined and I'm enjoying the novels and short stories that I've read so far.
