Five Friday Happy Bringers (4/25/14)

It’s Spring-Beautiful outside, and that’s enough to get me happy. But here come Five Additional Reasons.

1.  This cool photo of my buddy Clay.  A few days ago, he visited Zion National Park in Utah.

2.  Realizing, once again, that my happiness blog isn’t really necessary.  All you need to do is Eat Happy Salad now.

Mud1

my favorite e.e. cummings poem. and it’s about spring!

 

[in Just-]

 

in Just-

spring when the world is mud-

luscious the little

lame balloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come

running from marbles and

piracies and it’s

spring

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer

old balloonman whistles

far and wee

and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

it’s

spring

and

the

goat-footed

balloonMan whistles

far

and

wee

mud2

Tenebrae

I know it’s close to midnight, but I hope you have had a blessed Good Friday.

Tonight, I attended the most movingly beautiful service at my church, Asbury Memorial United Methodist, here in Savannah — Good Friday Tenebrae.

According to the service program, “Tenebrae is a Latin word which means shadows and has been applied to this service because the sequence of order is accompanied by ever deepening shadows.  The lights and candles are dimmed until the main light is the Christ Candle.  The gradual extinguishing of the light is symbolic of the flight of the disciples and the resentment of the world leading to the final isolation of Jesus on the cross.  At the end of the service, the Christ Candle is extinguished, and the tolling of the 33 bells (one for each year of Christ’s life) is begun.  The Christ candle is taken out of the sanctuary, only to return lit Easter morning.”
