50 Years Ago Today - One Post Abandoned for Another

For the past week or so I've been collecting links to stories about the situation in Portland, Oregon with the idea of posting about how the grotesque hate crimes of a deranged maniac, whose name I will not mention resulted in the murders of Rick Best, 53, and 23-year-old Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche.  Anna Herrington posted…

Gregg Allman died

Gregg Allman died today. He was 69 years old.



I don't know if there is anyone here who doesn't know who he was. In case you don't, he's the surviving brother (until today) in the Allman Brothers Band, their lead vocalist and organ player. He is known in some other circles for being married to Cher for four years.



I saw his band in concert twice, both during the early to mid seventies, during the period with Chuck Leavell on piano, once at RFK Stadium in DC with the Dead… Continue

Where Is The Silver Lining

It’s been a sort of miserable day.  After an overcast morning the rain started about noon, and it is pouring now.  L showed me a place where there is a water problem with water coming down the outside wall onto the screen porch.  It is at a place where the gutter does a 90 degree bend and a roof valley empties.  Ugh.

Added to that is the fact that the House voted today to pass the abomination that has been substituted for the AHA (Obamacare).  No one doubts, except the “Freedom…

Mathematics and Beauty

One Sunday morning, following the visiting speaker’s sermon that dealt in some way with the beautiful, the service leader asked members of the congregation to put forth the things they found beautiful.  Finally, a retired professor of physics stood and asked whether anyone found mathematics beautiful.  No one admitted to it.

As someone who finds beauty in a lot of different things - music, art, nature – I was made to ask myself whether I had ever found beauty in any mathematical…

Race, Religion and Politics...

...three things to never discuss at Thanksgiving or any other holiday dinner. 

Over the years here on Our Salon and back on Open Salon, I have been accused of being an anti-Semitic, pro-Israeli, unconscious racist, ignorant sexist, privileged old white dude by a variety of people.  On occasion I've…

Roots

I was listening to public radio last night in the way back from the supermarket and wine store where I was picking up stuff for Shabbat kiddush (blessing over wine) and dinner when I heard a piece on the influence of gospel on blues. Not singing gospel, preaching it. The program was demonstrating how a great preacher, Rev. C. L. Franklin, who preached in the fifties, influenced Bobby Bland. Listening to the sound of,this man preaching was amazing.



This is not the cut from last night,… Continue

All night sleep was a mystery I couldn't solve.

It came in sideways against the glass.

The steady pulse distracted me.

I let my thoughts wander.

The calm has returned.

Temporal respite.
