The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall

If you are a fan of the movie The Phantom of the Opera, or the book, or of musicals and Broadway in general and you haven’t seen this, do yourself a favor and go watch it now. Go. It’s on Netflix. Just stop reading RIGHT now and go watch it. I will wait for you.

 WASN’T IT AWESOME?! Oh my goodness. It blew my expectations right out of the water. It was amazing and dynamic and so much better than the movie. So much. It was beautiful. It sounded beautiful. The actors were amazing. The music. Everything. So so so so so beautiful. The only thing that could have made this better would be if I could have seen it in person. Maybe one day!

With Heavy Heart

I woke up this morning to the most heart-wrenching news. I am a great fan of Dish Nation and, by proxy, Kidd Kraddick in the Morning, and I learned Kidd passed away yesterday from a brain aneurysm. He brought so much laughter and so many smiles to such a huge audience on radio and on television. I am heartbroken at this loss though. He was only 53. Please pray for his family and friends and keep them in your thoughts

“For everything that happens in life — there is a season, a right time for everything under heaven:  a time to be born, a time to die; a time to plant, a time to collect a harvest; a time to kill, a time to heal; a time to tear down, a time to build up; a time to cry, a time to laugh; a time to mourn, a time to dance; a time to scatter stones, a time to pile them up; a time for a warm embrace, a time for keeping your distance; a  time to search, a time to give up as lost; a time to keep, a time to throw out; a time to tear apart, a time to bind together; a time to be quiet, a time to speak up; a time to love, a time to hate; a time to go to war, a time to make peace.”

– Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

Rest in Peace

Hello Aloha Shalom Salut Hola!

Welcome to my blog. It is currently two in the morning…I should really be asleep right now, but I wanted to get this post up first. Anyhow, my name is Savannah and I am a 21-year-old English major…and I just wanted to start a blog! If you are wondering what you might [eventually] find here I cannot guarantee it will be any one thing. I am getting a lot into writing now so I will probably post some short stories and in the fall I will be taking a Directed Study in Haibun, so that is certain to show up here. I am a born-again Christian, so you can certainly expect things about my faith. I mean, look at my background. I have a few animals you may hear about time and again and I am a church goer so you can expect to hear reflections from Sunday sermons and Thursday fellowships. God is, of course, the focus of my life, so He will be pretty present in this blog. Anyway, I am going to the beach with the bestie tomorrow morning…or today…whatever. I’m going to sleep. Goodnight!
