Well May The World Go

Sugar-from-nourition.coma documentary this week (which you can watch online) asks, is sugar toxic? probably. the body converts it to alcohol, and that is definitely toxic, especially to the liver and the brain. is it addictive? again, probably. (like nicotine in cigarettes, which forty years ago the cigarette industry denied.) so like everything, moderation is essential. what is moderation? 6 to 9 or 12 teaspoons a day, but europeans consume 17 a day and americans 19 (and teenagers consume way more than adults). Runny hunnyit’s a primary cause of not only obesity but also cavities, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and more. things have changed. a century ago we ate about four pounds a year per person; now we eat over a hundred. but be careful. sugar comes in many forms, such as cane, beet, honey, or even pure maple syrup, just to mention a few, and many names, including dextrose, fructose, maltose, and things i can’t spell or say. so, when i see a recipe, i usually reduce the sugar by half to two-thirds.

Mike Seeger plays gourd banjo at Breakin Up WinterHis grandfather with his great-uncle, Mike (from about a sixth down this page): ‘The Southern Folklife Collection has preserved hundreds of hours of [Mike] Seeger’s field recordings and his own master tapes. Every tape is a treat, but occasionally we come upon an especially outstanding track like this version of “Well May the World Go” featuring Mike performing with his brother, the legendary folksinger Pete, on 29 January 1973.’

Richard Rohr-from-cacRohr writes, ‘We don’t create the connection [of human-divine] by going to church or reading the Bible, although we hopefully enliven the connection. In Francis’ worldview [Francis of Assissi], we begin with “original blessing,” as Matthew Fox rightly said. Our DNA is already divine.’

RumoursOfGlory_BookCover_500-from-visiontv.cabruce cockburn is a major influence in my life, not only as a guitarist but also for his political and religious views. however, why is he a non-pacifist, and why did he become, then unbecome, then rebecome, a christian? and how did his politics form? have they changed much in recent decades? so i’m reading his autobiography, rumours of glory (2014), to find out. maybe i’ll re-examine my uncertainty.

Richard-Rohr_home-view-from-cacRichard Rohr writes, ‘For Bonaventure, the perfection of God and God’s creation is quite simply a full circle…. The lynchpin holding it all in unity is the “Christ Mystery,”… even more precisely, the crucified Christ, who reveals the necessary cycle of loss and renewal that keeps all things moving toward ever further life.’ This ecological pattern Rohr sees in stars and atoms as well as in the Cross.
