Aimee and I spent an enjoyable evening Saturday night at some friends’ house where singer/songwriter Bill Mallonee (formerly of the Vigilantes of Love) was giving a house concert. Several of our friends have known Mr. Mallonee for many years but it was our first introduction to his music. The music was great and the company was wonderful. After Bill went on his way, we sat around for a long time just talking. Today, as I thought about some of the things that were said, I realized how blessed I am to have honest, decent and interesting friends who live thoughtful, intentional lives.
