Woke up with this song in my head

I think it is because yesterday I learned from the seemingly ordinary leader of my Bible study group that she also loves The Decemberists! We discussed the nautical, whimsical, sometimes-depressing nature of their lyrics, the epic scale of The Crane Wife, and our shared unfamiliarity with their latest album. I adore those moments: discovering you share a particular passion with someone else.


  1. It must be quite a thrill to sing with a symphony accompaniment. Who or why would you miss your sister's wedding? I can't wait to se which austin girl I am? Which one was Elizabeth?

  2. She was the one played by Keira Knightley in the new version of Pride & Prejudice!

    I guess he missed it because they were on tour?
