Guess this is kind of pedestrian, but I miss my parents. There are fine actors/actresses that I tend to miss also ,though to a lesser degree. There are arrogant actors/directors and such that I miss not at all. Somehow, missing doesn't seem to accomplish that much, whereas the elevation and support of the newest generation seems a worthwhile application of belief and energy. Are children what it's really all about? Well, perhaps so, all our lives amount to little more than flashes in the pan. It's the children that represent tomorrow!

Something about your posts reminded me of this song...So I went looking and found it!

River Of Love Lyrics - Sam Phillips

T Bone Burnett (utube)



There's a river of love that runs through all times
There's a river of grief that floods through our loves
It starts when a heart is broken into
By the thief of belief in anything that's true
But there's a river of love that runs through all time

There's a river of love that runs through all time
There's a river of tears that flows through our eyes
We fight through the night for freedom as it fades
Into a jail where we fail everytime we make a break
But there's a river of love that runs through all time

I had to run before I knew how to crawl
The first step was hard but I have had trouble with them all
But now the night grows darker and the day grows dim
'Cause I know I never will see you again
And I almost made you happy

There's a river of love that runs through all time
There's a river of fire that burns with no light
The flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke
From the lies we deny and breathe until we choke
There's a river of love that runs through all time

Today (7/12) was Malala Yousafzai sixteenth birthday! In case you don't recall, she was shot in the head October 2012 in a murder attempt by the Taliban for having the temerity of engaging in and being a proponent for education for girls (books and classrooms and teachers). Following medical stabilization in Pakistan, she was flown to the UK for surgery and just last week met once again with her very best friend, also injured in the attack. She can't return to her home for fear of the Taliban, but that doesn't mean she's keeping quiet (she today addressed the United Nations assembly).

Happy birthday Malala, and Happy Malala day to everyone else !

Malala celebrates 16th birthday with UN address

I saw part of what she had to say. Those who would hurt her do not fear God.

"I heard that!" embarrassing('cause I'm as lazy as the day is long), yet true all the same.

Twenty-one children have died in India from consuming free school meals, meals intended to induce poor parents to send their children to primary school. Many more are in critical condition, seemingly due to the presence of trace phosphorus in the food. Apparently, phosphorus is used as a preservative for rice and wheat -- investigation in progress.

Elsewhere, the UN estimates 5,000 people are killed in Syria every month (including women and children). Some 6,000 or so a day are trying to escape Syria, but sufficient sustenance can be hard to find in the inadequate refugee camps (a challenge back home as well).

Interestingly, the Al-Qaeda "anti-government" fighters are claiming a goal of ridding the FSA (Free Syrian Army) of government loyalists (have already shot an FSA officer). Pakistani Taliban are claiming they've sent anti-government fighters to Syria (and more to come -- same people that shot Malala for promoting education for girls), but will they be helping the FSA or the announced Al-Qaeda purge? Over the last couple weeks, the FSA has taken losses in fighters and territory thanks to Lebanon Hezbollah, Gov't forces, and Gov't loyalist Alawites (who have a propensity for midnight bloody slaughter of civilians). Plus, appears both the UK and US have pulled back from providing significant arms to the FSA. So, who are their enemies and who their friends? What is their best course?

I can offer no better than this:

“Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,

Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.”

― Matthew Arnold, Dover Beach and Other Poems

I was in Jr collage and working nights as a part time ganitor , was sweeping out a class room and ending a run across the floor, hit the wall and looked up, there it was posted for the class to see.

I spend 5 or 10 minutes each night after that first meeting realizing this Matthew character had given me the best truth he had...

I could do no better...sigh

"Desiderata" sp? doesn't come very close. It always amazes me that ~"ask not for who the bell tolls" as well as "no man is an island" are in the same John Donne poem.

and that the one so well explains the other.
once they are join by "It tolls for thee".

Mr Donne had an interesting life... He was a infamous seducer of women until a met a beautiful woman married to another.

He pursued her relentlessly deaf to all her pleas that he should desist and leave her alone.


She begged him in tears but he would not leave her be. Finally he cornered her and began again the praise her beauty...

She turned upon him in furious anger and ripped open her dress... her breast were consumed with cancer...

Mister Dunne was transformed that night into Father Donne.

He stopped writing seduction poems and found another way to love mankind another path to poetry

To see through the Vail is truly transforming...

Never read his poetry, but I'm impressed with his apparent arrogant callowness. I've read the Ernest Hemingway novel and viewed the film (very good, though I recommend the book) and those two verse fragments work well -- "For Whom The Bell Tolls".

Had no idea that Mr Donne was a rotter before he became a seemingly good egg. Thanks Dan!
