A Lazy Afternoon at the Edge of Time


Loving tenderness abounds for all
from the darkest
to the most eminent one beyond the stars,
- Hildegard of Bingen

note: Happy Easter everybody. First, is everybody still in one piece? earthquake and all a while back. second sorry for not posting anything lately, but what’s new. Anyway, a little lazy afternoon list. It doesn’t have new songs, but made it fresh, so it should actually be “lazy afternoon”. As for the theme, maybe easter-ish. Love, redemption and death. I personally find it odd right now that life has to be redeeemed with death, seems so dark. With war going on and stuff. Why can’t they create a religious holiday to remind people not to be so bloody and destructive. sort of “chill” day. Nobody shall die holiday. It may not be all that grand, but at least it won’t be so dark. And yeah, the list is a bit dark at closing in keeping with my “see what I mean” mood. Love, death and destruction.. where is the redemption here and now? … ok. I am shutting up now. :D happy holiday everybody.

    A Lazy Blog at the Edge of the Blogosphere

    At some point you just have to stop checking for updates and accept that all good things must come to an end.
    So long!

    This is sad indeed. You managed to make something special out of this blog, and it will be missed.

The song makes its imprint
in the air, making itself felt,
a felt world. Here, there,
the stunned silence

of knowing I will not remember
what I heard;

futures that will never happen,
a fluidity we cannot achieve
except as a child
creating possibility.

This is the untranslatable song
hidden in the earth.
