In Spite of Ourselves

Why does love fade for some but endure for others? Perhaps we have unreal expectations about love and our beloved, not seeing the person for who s/he really is (warts and all). Singer/songwriter John Prine teams with the marvelous Iris DeMent to show how love can triumph in spite of ourselves. Hope you're not offended by some of the lyrics! O well, that's love.

I love Iris Dement. When she used to live in KC I figured I'd eventually get to see her in person, but it didn't happen.

I did go see John Prine a few days ago, though.

I understand from the review in the KC Star that it was a great concert and a near sell-out.
