The Weekend in Texas

My wife, Johanna, and I went to Texas last weekend to take part in the premiere of the choral work, "Lord of the Small," of which Dan Forrest, Jr., did the music and Jo did the lyrics. The work was performed at A&M Methodist Church in College Station, Texas, across from Texas A&M University.

The choral work was quite lovely (and when I can get a recording, I will link it on this blog), as Dan really put together a wonderful piece of music. It was done as a commission by two parents in College Station whose daughter died of cancer just before her 12th birthday a couple of years ago, and we had the pleasure of meeting them at the service.

Jo and I also attended the Mises Circle meeting in Houston, and the different speeches given by Doug French, Tom Woods, Rep. Ron Paul, and Lew Rockwell were superb. Nearly 600 people attended the meeting at the Post Oak Hilton, and there seemed to be a lot of enthusiasm.

So, a great weekend for us in Texas. Thanks to all of you who provided hospitality.
