Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

God Is Alive

I first heard this wonderful Leonard Cohen song/poem when I was very young, maybe 14 or so. It has always struck me as a potent and true expression of the sacramental nature of the material world, not to be mistaken for animism, but somewhat akin to it - the Catholic sense that God's Magic, His Mystery (mysterion, agape, nous and sophia) trumps all attempts to diminish it, that Christ is indeed rised from the dead and has once and for all trampled down death by His death, and bestows life upon those in the very tombs.
Sung by Cree singer-composer Buffy Sainte-Marie.
