No offense to your international readers, but tonight, knowing that we are still in dire economic straights with no end clearly in sight, I see the crowd in Times Square and remember the lines by Paul Simon: "We come in the age's most uncertain hours, and sing an American tune. Oh, but it's all right, it's all right, you can't be forever blessed..." Then there is Julian of Norwich's assurance, "And all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well, by the purification of the motive in the ground of our beseeching." Gee, if only it were true.
Oh it is, 'J', it is true. . .all manner of things shall be well. Don't let the tired weariness of the present age weigh you down: All will be well. . .Truth lies not with the crowd sated with its own spilled brew. There is always tomorrow beckoning us beyond yesteryear.
Yep, Happy New Year to all. A good version of Hallelujah, but it doesn't work for me like Jeff Buckley's brilliant version, that man still sends shivers down my spine.I damn near cry sometimes.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WIF4_Sm-rgQHere's a live version he did, a little different, beautiful....and so was he (grin)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HKnxmkOAj88&feature=player_embeddedLove that man.Greg in Adelaideuljah
I was impressed by J's comment, so much so, I went down to the local pub and walked up to the bartender and said, "And all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well, by the purification of the motive in the ground of our beseeching."So the bartender called the cops and had me thrown out. What did I do wrong?
Did you "River Dance" whilst reciting. . . .? NO?THAT"S what ya did wrong. . .ho ho ho
Gary, he obviously figured you were angling for a free drink. It wasn't the grounds of your beseeching that was deficient, but the impurity of your motive. Next time bring your wallet.
