What? There's only one discussion going on in the Pub?

That's definitely not enough. Barman! Another drink for me and the boys!

In the meantime I'll choose a song from the Jukebox:

Thanks for the reminder about that film; I've wanted to watch it for awhile.  I will try to do so soon.

With its mix of classical instrumentation and rock structures, the poro group, Ascent of Everest, reminds me a bit of Emerson, Lake, and Palmer, too:

An old poem I wrote in India.  I was inspired to re-record it after reading some poetry by an old friend of mine, who is currently finding poetic inspiration for his own work on the same riverbanks...

Would you provide the words for us? I didn't hear some of them.

Sure.  Here they are:

Evening by the Ganges


The light of the evening falls

Into the spaces between the leaves

Till that is all you see: points of evening, ablaze,

As though the fire were drawn

From all things,

From mango and muchkand and stone,

And you cannot tell the light

From the singers in the trees,

Leaping from limb to limb,

And you cannot tell the singers

From the sun, broken

On the broad face

of the river --


All things speaking the same bright tongue,

Meaning born of leaps of light.


Long-fingered leaves reach

Into the pink evening,

Love moves out from my palms,

And the sun in the tree

In sudden shivers flashes

Through the body, through the brain,

And these words come, like Ganga

Throwing back the sun,


Like when an angel kisses your ear in sleep

And makes light in the body leap


And you come undone.

One of my fav bands from that era, though I never saw them in concert. So this will be a treat when I have the time to watch it all. I skipped around a bit and had no idea Byrne was so animated. This is going to be fun, thanks.

Stop Making Sense is one of the best concert movies I've ever seen, honestly.  I think you'll really enjoy it.

Another fav from that era:

Oh, yes, love that one...

Generation One

I got this in the email today.  Notice the funny typo in it?


(And thank you for the cool music upload, theurj; I will listen to it in full -- and with full volume! -- when I get home...)

I wanna be part of the shit network...

What paths lie ahead for religion and spirituality in the 21st Century? How might the insights of modernity and post-modernity impact and inform humanity's ancient wisdom traditions? How are we to enact, together, new spiritual visions – independently, or within our respective traditions – that can respond adequately to the challenges of our times?

This group is for anyone interested in exploring these questions and tracing out the horizons of an integral post-metaphysical spirituality.
