LivingRoom DVD Extravaganza

LivingRoom on Tuesday was our DVD extravaganza which was held at the recently arrived home community members, who had been away overseas for 6 months. It was great to catch up with everyone, and enjoy Lauryn Hill's live concert "Hill's Unplugged"! Pillows, doonas, popcorn, and nibbles were accompanying this singer from The Fugees.

A spiritual, emotional Lauryn Hill was singing of God and freedom with tears streaming down her face during several songs. Dressed in blue jeans, a denim jacket and a New York Yankees cap, Hill sat on a stool and strummed an acoustic guitar for over 2 hours. She spoke seriously about her faith and shunning the trappings of fame, and several fans in the audience shed tears with her. She not only has a wonderful voice, her testimony is very touching and inspiring as well.

"I used to get dressed for y'all but I don't do that no more," Hill joked as she began her set.
"It's a new day."
"I'm a mess but God is dealing with me every day, and true healing is from the inside out."
"That's what all these songs are about: problem, cause and solution.
"People want fantasy, but what they need is reality! And reality can only be found in God."
"I had to do some dying before I could live again."
"The more I focus on myself, the less I can be used by God."
"I am who I am - I don't need to hide it. It's all good. God is faithful."
"Living our passion & purpose is pleasing to God."

What do you reckon?

Sounds wonderful. Oh, to answer your question, I do think that interviewing someone is a creative venture, now having thought about it for awhile.
