Saturday morning quotes 8.30: Christmas time is here

December 18, 2021

Christmas Gift Suggestions:
To your enemy, forgiveness.
To an opponent, tolerance.
To a friend, your heart.
To a customer, service.
To all, charity.
To every child, a good example.
To yourself, respect.
Oren Arnold (1900 – 1980)

Another year has vanished in the blink of an eye while we have all been kept on the edge of our seats wondering just what fresh hell is lurking around the corner. Sure, people have suffered worse through the ages, but there is something particularly awkward about the complete ineptitude of world leaders in 2021, failing to deal effectively with what have become global public health and financial insecurities, and defaulting into unchecked authoritarianism. It is generally accepted that we were meant to have evolved with the passing of time. But yet here we are nearly a quarter of the way into a new century and in even more of a muddle than ever.

The best thing is to maintain our human connections in the face of upheaval and authoritarianism, and shun the absurdities promoted by those who profit from public fear and confusion. We offer our own arrangements of a few Christmas songs for the calming combination of voice and lute to help bring things down to earth:

The Angel Gabriel

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

Happy Christmas from Ron & Donna
