When I first started listening to Hamilton back in August, I was immediately hooked. As I said in my previous post, Lin Manuel-Miranda has my undying respect & adoration. I love In The Heights. The episode of House he was in: the only truly good episode of House. Lin loves his fans and peers and is humble despite the daunting amount of acclaim and fame he has received since In The Heights and, more recently, from Hamilton, the musical most often described as "a hip-hop musical about the Founding Fathers, but mostly about Alexander Hamilton, and is narrated by the man who shot him, Aaron Burr." Like Teyve says, "Sounds crazy, no?" But it works. No more ink need be spilled on its success and all the famous folk that see it each and every day; instead, the bulk of this post is to share my experience at the theater and divulge some of what happened on stage in those three hours.
Last year I made a post about all the books I read in 2014 with short reviews that may have been read by nary a soul. But nonetheless, I'm continuing the act and starting a tradition by sharing all the books I read in 2015. It was a wonderful year of reading. I finally jumped on the Harry Potter bandwagon and am now a proud Hufflepuff. I read a few classics that I've always wanted to read. One of my book selections led me and my husband to Oklahoma City to serve Joe's Addiction through painting. You just never know where a book will take you.
