World On Fire

I know back in high school I never cared for Sarah McLachlan but now, I think I might be having a change of heart.

When I saw her music video this past week in class for her luminous song "World On Fire", I was taken aback: this is not the Sarah McLachlan I remember.

And so, Sarah has been playing a lot in my car lately and that, so far, has been a pretty wonderful thing. But really, you should check out the video and see for yourself. After my professor showed it to our film class, every pastor in the room wanted to know "who is this singer" and "what's the name of this song again" because they wanted to show it in a church service I think. Yes, it really is that good...even though at first, I thought it was going to be "just another world outry for help." It's not. By the end, the music and images from around the world get to you---another reason for it being a pretty wonderful thing.

What a great video! I went home for lunch today and showed it to my dad, who also thought it was cool. Thanks for sharing that with us, Neville!

My Dearest Neville (and other American Idol fans),

Allow me to let you guys in on a little secret - is how Scott is staying in. How have I become an American Idol fan? Not sure, but now that I know of the conspiracy, I love it even more.
