Down by the Greenwood Side

Here are two versions of an old folk song, known as both “The Cruel Mother” and “Down by the Greenwood Side”. The lyrics are chillingly appropriate for the commemoration of Roe vs. Wade on January 22.


A Foretaste of Wisdom

My eldest son has a new blog – A Foretaste of Wisdom. The title is rather modest, for at this blog you will find plenty of uncommon wisdom indeed. This is where he posts the gems he finds in his spiritual, theological, and philosophical reading, along with personal reflections on topics of interest. Recent entries include Divine Intimacy – HumiliationsTwo Forms of Pride, Johann Sebastian Bach – Cantata: Ich Habe Genug, and Interior Trials in the Spiritual Life. But nevermind all that: the blog is worth reading for sake of surfing the many worthy links in his sidebar. He invites my few remaining readers to visit and comment.
