Recurring Decimals…..

Everything here is irrelevant

End of the week thoughts

with one comment

One:

It has been a depressing two week news-wise, so when you read a story like this, it restores some faith in humanity.

It’s a perfect morning for a wedding in tiny Dolgeville, N.Y. A soft breeze tames the July sun; birds do tremolos from above the clapboard cottages of a village so quaint it holds an annual Violet Festival. Beneath the narrow spire and wooden beams of the United Lutheran Presbyterian Parish, Carolyn Bergeron, 29, and Sujeet Desai, 25, are about to take their vows. "There is news today," says the Rev. James Paulson. "Love," he says, can’t be stopped by cultural differences or different faiths. "Love can’t be stopped by Down syndrome."

(Via Sepia Mutiny) Do read the full story.

Two:

These are the two most enigmatic lines I have heard in rock lyrics (admittedly I have a limited knowledge of the rock n’roll/pop/country music oeuvre). Would like to leave you with the thought.

Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose –

Nothin’ don’t mean nothin’ hon’ if it ain’t free……

From Me & Bobby McGhee, (full lyrics here) originally written and performed by Kris Kristofferson and covered by many – but do listen to the Janis Joplin version – sung in her emotional rasping voice. The lines have gained a lot of attention during the Bush presidency rhetoric on freedom.

Enjoy the weekend.

  1. Really liked the DS story. Pretty amazing! Like a lot of people I’ve had a very narrow perspective of the disease. Thanks for pointing out the article. It was very enlightening.
