Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam


Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend,
 Before we too into the Dust Descend;
   Dust into Dust, and under Dust, to lie,
 Sans Wine, sans Song, sans Singer and—sans End!


Myself when young did eagerly frequent
 Doctor and Saint, and heard great Argument
   About it and about: but evermore
 Came out by the same Door as in I went.


There was a Door to which I found no Key:
 There was a Veil past which I could not see:
   Some little Talk awhile of ME and THEE
 There seemed—and then no more of THEE and ME.

Excerpts from the "Rubaiyat Of Omar Khayyam"

The Prophet │ Kahlil Gibran

 You give but little when you give of your possessions.
It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.
For what are your possessions but things you keep and guard for fear you may need them tomorrow?
And tomorrow, what shall tomorrow bring to the over-prudent dog burying bones in the trackless sand as he follows the pilgrims to the holy city?
And what is fear of need but need itself?
Is not dread of thirst when your well is full, the thirst that is unquenchable?
An excerpt from "The Prophet" by Kahlil Gibran.

Christmas Canon │ An Angelic Meditation

This has to be the most beautiful setting ever for Pachelbel's "Canon in D".  Aunt Martha and I wept profusely upon hearing it for the first time.  The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, augmented by the angelic voices of a children's choir, have created a modern day holiday masterpiece with the "Christmas Canon".  Just when you thought that you had heard all the Christmas songs in the world, along comes something marvelous, and special like the "Christmas Canon".  It is from an album called "The Christmas Attic".  In this edition of Angel Watchers I invite you to experience the "Christmas Canon".  Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
