Old time religion

What I'm thinking about today: The moment in the film Junebug when the Embeth Davidtz character realizes that her big city husband not only grew up a churchgoer, but can also, at a moment's notice, sing "Softly and tenderly, Jesus is calling" -- in a sweetly harmonized rendition that made me weep to hear it and makes me weep to recall it.

I wish Amy Adams had won the Oscar for her shattering performance in Junebug. It surely was a fine one.
