Was just listening to The Avett Brothers and ran across this one. Made me think of David Gentiles…

"Living of Love"

For just one chance to find
Love was someone that you loved to find
For just the sense to try
To walk ahead and leave the pain behind
If the days aren’t easy and the nights are rough
When they ask you what you’re thinking of
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love

Your heart says not again
What kind of mess have you got me in
But when the feelings there
It can lift you up and take you anywhere
But the gravel beneath you and the limbs above
If anybody asks you where your coming from
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love

Say yes we live uncertainty
And disappointments have to be
And everyday we might be facing more
And yes we live in desperate times
But fading words and shaking rhymes
There’s only one thing here worth hoping for
With Lucifer beneath you and God above
If either one of them asks you what your living of
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love
Say love, say for me love

Forthose who have seen both, do you agree with this article? http://m.guardian.co.uk/?id=102202&story=http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/filmblog/2009/dec/21/avatar-shows-cinemas-weakness

This is what I’m always telling my students, without a good story you can’t make a good movie, no matter how cool the effects.

We’ve been on a roller coaster ride of triumph and tragedy around here for the last two weeks, and I’ve been processing on the fly. Random, heartfelt, thoughts based on emotions uncovered by the reality of mortality. I’ll be doing much more contemplation over the weeks and months to come, hopefully, with some wisdom and fortitude of spirit that reveals not what I want or feel, but rather what is of substance beyond what my earthly body and mind can comprehend.

But, for today we face a tough road with the passing of another friend and so I will protest! I will cry with anguish as the people I know and love are literally brought to their knees in pain.

However, I hope we as a community of faith can move beyond this protest and into the realm of life-sustaining prayer

 

When in a crisis of war, sudden poverty, illness or death we are confronted with the ‘absurdities of life,’ we can no longer remain neutral and are asked to respond. Often our first and most visible response is a protest bursting forth from our bewilderment. It is at these crucial moments of life that we are reminded again of our illusions and asked to convert our protest into prayer. This is a very hard task, but a task leading us not away from reality but closer to it. —Henri Nouwen
