Sunday Respite – Palm Sunday



We enter Holy Week.

Holy Week, in the Christian church, the week between Palm Sunday and Easter, observed with special solemnity as a time of devotion to the Passion of Jesus … A time for deep reflection.

I chose the following piece of music today which I think lends itself to that reflection. I have special music planned beginning with Maundy Thursday, and hope you will stop by for the music as we conclude Hoy week.

Song: Hymn of the Cherubim Composer: Piotr Illitch Tchaikovsky (1840 – 1893) Performed by: USSR Ministry of Culture Chamber Choir

Liturgy of St John Chrysostom

The Divine Liturgy of Saint John Chrysostom is the most celebrated divine liturgy (or “mass”) in the Byzantine Rite. It is named after its core part, the anaphora attributed to Saint John Chrysostom, Archbishop of Constantinople in the 5th century.

Sunday Respite – People come into your life for a reason


“Struggle is not an act; it is an attitude. If we believe that we must fight to get what we want, we will toil over everything we do. If we recognize, however, that the universe works more efficiently for us when we approach it with ease, life will serve us in miraculous ways.”

― Alan Cohen

Wishing my “virtual friends and family” a wonderful, joyous and blessed Spring. We look forward as we embrace the rebirth of all that Mother Earth will be offering us. We are so blessed.



Music is by David & Steve Gordon from the album named “Sacred Earth Drums”. The song is titled ‘Guardian Spirit’.

Thanks to Purple Rays for the inspiration.

Sunday Respite – Can’t Run From Yourself


For today’s Sunday Respite I chose Hanne Boel with “Can’t Run From Yourself.”

Paintings by Fabio Calvetti. Next week I will try and get back to my more mellow selections. Just say for today I dedicate this number to the swamp.

Wishing everyone a wonderful day.


Sunday Respite – I’ll Play The Blues For You


“I’ll Play The Blues For You” by Daniel Castro is my selection for the Sunday Respite. I have had enough of winter snow scenes. Considering all we have been through this week, I think a bit of the blues sums it up.

Painter Rémi LaBarre creates the atmospherics with his works. You may prefer going to full screen to enjoy the video.

Wishing you a wonderful day ..   🙂
