Year End December 31 2010


A year gone by and so many dearly beloved departed. A year to come and a time to end unending war, and negotiate some sanity. People cannot be cannon fodder forever.

Today and tomorrow, a glimpse at another period of senseless war. Thomas Tallis gets the space in Protestant divided England to compose the greatest Catholic piece of music to a Jewish –Christian God of the time up to now. An embarrassment to the evolving Anglican Church and the then hostile Catholic Church both at the same time, it has largely languished unknown ever since. This version was put up by a very talented young lady from Montana. May America be possessed of enough wisdom to employ her.

This weekend, the masterpiece of Thomas Tallis circa 1570. History shows, we can all be kinder and nicer to all, even our enemies, especially once we have them largely beaten . We don’t need to existentially fight to the death. We, if we want to, can use our creation in the image of God and his reason, to use diplomacy and common sense to work things out.

A very happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year 2011 to all and your families, and I do mean all. After the banksters, we deserve it.

Spem in alium numquam habui praeter in te

Deus Israel

qui irasceris

et propitius eris

et omnia peccata hominum in tribulatione dimittis

Domine Deus

Creator coeli et terrae

respice humilitatem nostram


I have never put my hope in any other but in you

God of Israel

who will be angry

and yet become again gracious

and who forgives all the sins of suffering man

Lord God

Creator of Heaven and Earth

look upon our lowliness.
