We're having a wonderful time in Florida, even though the house is less than ideal (not real clean and the pool has been especially a problem). We drove over to see the shuttle launch Mon. night/Tues. morning. It was a long wait, with lots of traffic but it was pretty spectacular, though short-lived, as the cloud cover was quite low.
Last night we went to see U23D in Orlando and it was not a disappointment. I was really struck with the passion of the band (especially Bono of course), but also the passion of the fans, as they sang along. Man it was like church at times (a very cool church!). I think this is aided by the fact that U2 doesn't sing much fluff, they're promoting ideas like peace and justice and love (agape and philio more than eros).
Today we plan to hang close to the (somewhat murky) pool and enjoy the sun & heat (high of 79).
