J’adore le film Rouge

Valentine et Joseph regardent...

J’adore le film Rogue. C’est un film avec beaucoup d’intéressant connections–entre les autres films de Kieslowski, mais aussi dans ce film. Valentine tombe dans l’amour avec un homme qui est eu un juge. Maintenant, tout ce qu’il fait est écouté. Il écoute conversations de ses voisins. Au début, Valentine pense qu’il est un dommage. Mais, pendant le film, ils ont appris à l’aimer. Mais, cette amour n’est pas sexuelle ; celle était un lien entre deux âmes. Le juge vieux et le juge jeune sont les deux s’entendant a Valentine. Donc était vous vous entendre ?

Around the Throne

Yesterday I watched Schindler’s List.



It was hard.  But not as difficult as I had anticipated.  I felt distanced.  Disconnected.  I felt; but I couldn’t cry.

Then I thought–as I shuffled back into my room to go to sleep–

They sang “Holy!” during the Holocaust.

The Elders.  The Living Creatures.  The Angels.  The dead in Christ.  They sang “Holy!”  While it happened—they were there, continuing the perpetual dance of adoration.  Up and down.  Face lifted, face falling, face lifted, face falling.  Because He is holy.  And as He presided over the human affairs, the demonic affairs, the demonic affairs that culminated in the death of six million people and the continued life of a globe that had rejected His perfect leadership–there He sat.  In the beauty of His holiness.  Unchanged.  Moved, yes—as He always His by His beloved ones; humans, I mean.  And He sat.  And the LambLion interceded.  And angels ascended and descended…

the Warmth of rhythm

I am a creature of rhythms.

Each day I like to play my piano.

To eat good food.

To turn on a warm light and linger for a moment, pausing before the immensity of busy life.  To hide away in the startling edges of life, inside the mind and tucked away in the folds of my own experience.

I shall retire.
