closed their doors last Friday. Its sad to see the old girl go the way of the dinosaurs. As long as the internet is available, her heart will continue to beat and archives will be perused for good writing and photography. Embedded in the above link is another link:
It is a Pulitzer prize winning work which should be read and seen by all patriots. AND, discussed in every civics classroom nationwide. WHAT?!?! oh, that's right. Civics is no longer part of a politically correct curriculum.

Well, I would be infatuated even if she were not an accomplished fiddle player with a delightful, ethereal voice. Take a listen.....I still have a lump in my throat after listening to Killing the Blues...... Lord'a'Mercy!
3) - Yesterday was the first Sunday in Lent.The gospel reading assigned was Mark 1:9-15 -
In those days Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. 10 And just as he was coming up out of the water, he saw the heavens torn apart and the Spirit descending like a dove on him. 11 And a voice came from heaven, "You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased."
12 And the Spirit immediately drove him out into the wilderness. 13 He was in the wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels waited on him.
14 Now after John was arrested, Jesus came to Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God, 15 and saying, "The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God has come near; repent, and believe in the good news."
In the Celtic Christian tradition there is a belief that there are times and places where the veil between the worlds grows thin....thin enough for spirit and earth to meld into one....where spirits and mankind walk together....where linked spirits meet and join as one in love, in HIS love!
Its called by some mathematical theorists "Tesseract"...the folding of space and time in the fourth dimension.
God can call us to that place. Its up to us to make the choice to accept believe that:
" ..the time has been fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God has drawn near..... "
and to walk through that veil, to walk and talk together with your brothers and sisters and with Jesus, no matter the seeming distance or time separating us.
We allow ourselves to be slaves to Kronos....earthly time. God calls us to walk in his time Kairos, where space and time, as we live it, have no meaning.
