After tonight's Taize Evening Prayer in a beautiful space with the biggest crowd the chaplaincy has had since last spring, I settled in at a table of what appeared to be grad students. Hunting for a way in for conversation with one of them, I noticed that her mug advertized "Manchester Orchestra." Since many of the undergraduates who come to our church are string players, I made an assumption here, too. I said, "I noticed your mug. Do you play in an orchestra?"
They were so very nice to me, when they could have rolled their eyes and laughed. "No," she said, "actually, The Manchester Orchestra is a band from Atlanta. She added, "They played on David Letterman about two weeks ago." "Ah," I said, but I wouldn't have seen that, either.
Really, I don't live in a cave. It just seems like it some nights.
