Meek light makes me want to write, so as I sit here with the Christmas lights twinkling (that is really the only word for it), I thought I’d start my reading and listening lists for the new year.

Here’s what I’ve got so far:

The Death of Adam by Marilynne Robinson
Angle of Repose by Wallace Stegner (Sorry, Shawn, I started this and then got sidetracked.)
At Sea with God by Margaret Silf (One of the last books Mom was reading.)
Falling Slowly by Anita Brookner
Mystery and Manners by Flannery O’Connor

Ellis Paul
Josh Rouse
Swell Season
Alejandro Escovedo
Over the Rhine
Band of Horses (Thanks, Jansen, for the recommendation.)
Sugarland (or at least the songs where Kristian Bush’s voice comes through loud and strong)
Iron and Wine
Bob Dylan
And a lot more Beatles. I have to confess that I have completely underappreciated them.

So what else should I add? What’s on your reading or listening list? Please share. I have the time, and I’d love to expand what I know.
