Sunday Respite – ‘Ready for the times to get better’


Doc Watson and “Ready for the times to get better.”  My choice for a Sunday Respite. A bit different than my usual mellow picks, but with all that went down this week it seemed appropriate. Wishing you a wonderful Sunday..


Wishing you a great New Year!

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year. Thanks to all who stopped by my very small piece of the ether and took the time to read my scribbles.

Enya adds to the season.

Wednesday Respite – A Winter Morning


As we  continue the excitement of Christmas and prepare for the New Year, I thought it might be nice to take a mid-week break with a respite. Sit back and enjoy the break. Once the clip starts, I suggest going to full screen mode. Have a wonderful day.

Sunday Respite – “Waiting in Silence”


Wishing everyone a great day. One of my favorite pieces for Advent. I appreciate is pensive tone.

1. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we long for you, Lord.
God ever with us, Emmanuel,
Come, Lord Jesus, Maranatha!

2. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we trust in your love.
O Sun of Justice, true Prince of Peace,
Come with your justice, Lord, Maranatha!

3. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, Lord, we seek your truth.
Wisdom Incarnate, teach us your way;
Show us the path of life, Maranatha!

4. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, we long for new life.
O Key of David, open our hearts.
Give us new vision, Lord, Maranatha!

5. Waiting in silence, waiting in hope;
we are your people, our hearts thirst for you.
Flower of Jesse, bloom in our midst.
Make us your garden, Lord, Maranatha!

There are several interpretations of “Maranatha.” One being: “Maranatha!” became the common greeting of the oppressed believers, replacing the Jewish greeting shalom (“peace”).

Sunday Respite – ‘Oh Come Oh Come Emanuel’


Sugarland does an unusual rendition of this classic. Here is my choice for the Sunday Respite, the First Day of Advent. A time for reflection. Have a wonderful day.

Slavery comes to Libya thanks to Hillary Clinton


Hillary is running around the world, mostly unreported, dissing Trump and heralding her wonderful foreign policy. If we wonder why we are up to our eyeballs in difficulty with bringing North Korea under control, we only have to look at  Libya and what happened to Gaddafi. Add Syria too, who was on their way to going nuclear until Israel bombed the heck out of their installations. Here is a memory by


Footage from Libya, released recently by CNN, showed young men from sub-Saharan Africa being auctioned off as farm workers in slave markets.

And how did we get to this point? As the BBC reported back in May, “Libya has been beset by chaos since NATO-backed forces overthrew long-serving ruler Col. Moammar Gadhafi in October 2011.”

And who was behind that overthrow? None other than then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Not a used car, a piece of land, or an item of furniture. Not “merchandise” at all, but two human beings are seen in the video clip at CNN.

You broke it, Hillary. You own it.

Bush 43 had a deal with Gadhafi, according to which the dictator abandoned his weapons of mass destruction in return for not getting deposed. Obama and Hillary reneged on the deal, resulting in the creation of an ISIS/al Qaeda terrorist wonderland in a country that had been neutralized; a flood of largely unassimilable refugees into Europe; America becoming established in the international mind as untrustworthy, so that other dictators will be unlikely to follow Gadhafi’s lead and give up nuclear/biological weapons programs peaceably; and black African slavery.
