The forward continuity chronology life person - WE becoming

I like the look of thistled, ruined walls.
I send regards to scholars, one and all.
What is a scholar but a spectator,
Who values only objectivity?
“But I shall go out and observe the field!
But who will there be to talk to out there?”
What is a thought if not thought by yourself?
I come before all in simplicity.
I cannot offer multiples of truth.
I say Abba’s at hand, within, around.
If you ask who, I say, Go ask Abba!

There is Peirce suggested a second person within
with whom we converse constantly
I see this as the forward continuity chronology life person
as WE becoming
To speak with Abba within is not to address this person
but to acknowledge the mystery which you by faith
accept as familiar and friendly 
as Jesus did
using the daddy word  Abba
The text above is from "Abba's Way"
in which Jesus is imagined to have returned
to speak his mind

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
