October 15, 2013. Palo Alto, California. I can't believe that I've been this close to Stanford for over two years and last night was my first time on campus. Dave and I attended the LDS Convocation at the Memorial Church, featuring keynote speaker and choral conductor Craig Jessop. I understand why the LDS church doesn't spend gaudy amounts of money on embellishing over-the-top architecture for their churches and temples (keeping them more-or-less functional) but man, listening to Jessop's choir in that church...the experience was transcendent! "The influence of music has the power to free the soul, " said Craig Jessop.
