We never made it inside of St. Paul’s Cathedral while we were in London. Each time we went there they seemed to have a private event going on. As a result I wound up taking alot of pictures of the statues outside and the cathedral itself. This church has sat there since the 1600s and there has been a church in this location since AD 604. That’s amazing to think about in the grand scheme of life in general. All the people, history and years that have passed by since the year 604. That’s crazy or as G likes to say to annoy the sh!t out of me….that is cray, cray.

If you haven’t listened to Mumford & Sons you are seriously missing out. I personally like their live music better than their studio but that is true for most bands I’ve found. If you click the link to their name it will take you to the Deluxe Companion CD (does anyone buy CDs anymore?) otherwise download it on iTunes and give it a good listen. One of their songs as I listened to it today had a bit of a different meaning in light of yesterday’s events. I understood it before by it just rang a lot more true this afternoon.
In these bodies we will live, in these bodies we will die
Where you invest your love, you invest your life
Awake my soul, awake my soul

To me this just represents in an essence the meaningless nature of life in general. The gift of life on its own is meaningless without capitalizing on it. At the end of it all what we will reap is what we put into it. Things will carry on with or without us so invest meaningfully in the time you have and make it count because its your greatest gift. By the way the next book on my list is The Timekeeper by Mitch Albom. In it the inventor of the world’s first clock to measure time is ‘blessed’ (or cursed) by being forced into a cave to listen to the voices of those dying wishing for my time at the end. Such an interesting concept and all of his books have been great in the past.
