    Out Our Way:

    We know from talking to many of you that this is your "don't miss" place in the Digest, so we endeavor to make it fun and informative for you every month. This month we want the theme to be that of a Christmas Card, so we’re including some of our favorite scenes of Christmas time. May you and yours have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!

    This month was packed with activities for both me and Del. It started off with an Italian dinner by Emily at my Dad’s house, followed by an enthusiastic Pedro card game in which Buster, my Dad, and I took on Del and Emily and managed to eke out a victory this time. Thursdays are getting to be our favorite day of the week when Del is off and we can go together to early morning Mass at Holy Family Church with Buster and Emily, fold bulletins for the church with them, play Pedro, and then have lunch. Dad has thrown away his cane and is walking normally again since recovering from his minor stroke a couple of months ago. And Emily’s companionship has been a big boon for his morale.

    Saturday the 2nd was my club’s No Reason At All breakfast and I picked up Dad and we enjoyed a traditional New Orleans breakfast of grillades and grits and good fellowship with the club members. That night Del and I went to the Warren Easton 40th Reunion at the Hampton Inn. Del’s former Flag Team buddies were there and I was busy taking photos of the whole wingding, plus dancing with Del when I could pry her away from the girls. The purple and gold balloons at the entrance to the dance floor brought home to me that Del and I both chose high schools with purple and gold as their colors, and I chose a college, LSU, with those colors. What’s the chances of that happening anywhere else in the country? Btw, LSU had an open date and that’s how this night was chosen for the Reunion.

    Sunday the 3rd was a Saints Open Date and our favorite orchestra, the New Leviathan Oriental Foxtrot Orchestra was celebrating its 30th anniversary of its founding with a Tea Dance at the new Hotel Monaco. Situated in an old Masonic Lodge building downtown, the interior looks like it should be in Egypt with gold-gilded walls, arabesques, arches, and mosaic tiles on floors and walls. A fitting venue for an oriental foxtrot orchestra that doesn’t play any songs written after 1933. Named after the SS Leviathan that sailed from New Orleans to Turkey during the 1920s when the oriental foxtrot was all the rage and was played on its bandstand every night of the passage, the orchestra was founded by Jack Stewart and George Schmidt in 1972 and was originally mostly Tulane students. With violins, cello, piano, tuba, trombones, trumpets, banjos, saxophones, and a wild drummer among other things, their theme song goes like this, “Oh, don’t be angry – ‘cause we’re the boys from New Orleeeans.” Our friend Tenaj is a violinist and singer in the band and it’s always a treat for me and Del to talk to her between numbers.

    Okay, the month wasn’t all fun and games. I had this massive upgrade to my computer system to get lined up. A new Laptop to get ready for our trip at the end of the month to Toronto. I had to be able to upload photos to my Laptop while away from home and then bring them home and download into my desktop. This kept me busy a large portion of the month and I was ready to go on time, confident that the whole system would work together. As I’m writing this I can report that every thing performed as expected.

    I’ve been reading “The Destinies of Individuals and of Nations” by Rudolf Steiner and it’s taking me a long time because so many thoughts well up and offer themselves as poems. Here’s one from November 7 that was inspired by a marvelous passage on page 38 that talked of a heroes death in battle:

    The Death of Love

    The hero falls in battle
    He has no love of death

    He has the love of countrymen
    He has the love of friends
    He has the love of his
    comrades in arms.
    He has the love of whom
    his battle harms.

    He meets his death in glory
    He leaves us with a story
    He leaves us with a death of love.

    Saturday was a big day. Our twin sons Jim and John were in town for a wedding of a relative. I watched the LSU-Kentucky football game until it was time for me to dress for a charity ball at the St. Alphonsus Center in the Irish Channel section of New Orleans. Non-football fans can skip this next paragraph about the end of the game.

    I watched the whole game. With 8 seconds left the Tigers were down 30-27 and Kentucky was kicking off to them. Henderson caught the kickoff and ran out of bounds. First past was a 15 yder or so to the middle of the field which was empty and a time out was called with 2 seconds left. I spied the UK players carrying a Gatorade cooler and dumping the icy water on their coach. The UK fans lined the sides of the field to begin tearing down the goal posts in a few seconds. Marcus Randall sent three wide receivers down the right side of the field, stepped back, planted his foot hard, leaned back as far as he could go to cock his arm and flung a high-arced rocket into the pile of 7 UK defenders and two LSU receivers, Michael Clayton and Devrey Henderson. The ball came towards Clayton and his defenders about the 20 yd line, he tipped the ball over three blue jerseys and Henderson stretched his arms, stretched them again, the ball was going off the distant tips of his outstretched hands, so he stretched one last time, pulled in the ball and ran past two blue jerseys on either side of him the last 7 yds into the end zone! The TIGERS WIN! THE TIGERS WIN ! ! ! What an incredible drive and play. It will make every highlight reel for many years to come when LSU and Kentucky play. Jim and John had left to go with their mom. She was driving John to the downtown hotel where he and Kristin and Collin will be spending the night. I ran out the house just as she backed the Maxima to the edge of our driveway. I ran out with both arms in the air and shouting at the top of my lungs. We WON! We WON! Was it a Hail Mary pass completion or what? The headlines of the Times-Picayune said it best: “HAIL YEAH!”

    Sometime during the month I made a decision which may excite the cooks among you, dear Readers, and the palettes of those who just like to eat good tasting food. I will be publishing in this Digest in coming issues a favorite recipe of mine. I began last month with the Burkhardt Bread recipe which I hope those of you who try this recipe will let me know of your success with it. I will include actual dishes that Del and I eat in our home, not any fancy stuff, just our everyday fare mostly. This month I will start modestly with a recipe for wild rice and long grain rice which will serve as base for future dishes in coming months, so give it a try.

    On the 14th I presented Father Finn of Holy Family Church with a framed print of the Holy Family that I had bought almost 15 years earlier when the original church was just being built. I wanted him to have something that he could take with him when he retires from the priesthood at some distant date. I also fixed the lunch for the Pedro game on this Thursday: shrimp stuffed merlitons and crawfish leeks tarts. You can expect a recipe for them in coming months.

    The latest Harry Potter movie, book 2, “The Chamber of Secrets” was out and it was great. Moaning Myrtle, the Basilisk, Gilderoy Lockhart, and Lucius Malfoy played by a bad guy from films. He made Snape look mild-mannered by comparison.

    In the end Dumbledorf tells Harry that Valdemorte gave Harry some of his power when he tried to kill Harry as a baby. The insight came to me that when we get angry at someone, we give them our power. Del pointed out that equanimity has the direct benefit to us of keeping this from happening. Thus I received the answer to my unanswered question as to why one might wish to contain one’s joy within instead of exuberantly yelling it out: it keeps our power within us instead of spreading it into the world where it might be misused by others. This was an issue I was pondering for a long time and suddenly it began to make sense to me. Would throw a damper on football fans if this news got out.

    Our Toronto trip went exactly as planned. First day we drove to our son Rob’s house in Bloomington and got to visit with our three grandkids a couple of hours before bedtime. Next day we drove to Toronto and made it right on time, except for one detail. All the other large cities we drove through we did it outside of rush hour, but for Toronto, our final destination, there was no way to avoid it: we came in at rush hour. Took us an hour to go thirty blocks. The closer we got to the Delta Chelsea, the slower we went, till we could have walked faster than we were driving.

    We had a wonderful conference. Del conferred with Jo Anne over the best places to shop and in Toronto that’s no easy chore as there are so many great places to shop. Ed Smith and I attended sessions on Platonism and Neoplatonism, Mysticism, and I caught one on the Centennial of William James’ “Varieties of Religious Experience”. Del and I ate on Captain John’s Restaurant, a large ship docked next to the Westin Harbour Castle. We heard Ghandi’s grandson talk about growing up with his famous grandfather, Mahatma Ghandi. I got to see Francis Barboza dance native India dances to Lord Shiva and to Lord Jesus. We met this lovely Newfoundland lady, Ruby, who was our shuttle bus coordinator. She was a delight to talk to and made waiting for the next bus to the Convention Center fun.

    On the last day we left for our 25th Anniversary honeymoon trip to Viagara Falls, oops, I meant Niagara Falls. A short hour and a half trip from Toronto, we got there in time to walk along the Falls to the Table Rock Inn where we decided to return later for dinner overlooking the Falls. Food was great and we had a romantic dinner together. As we left, the snow was beginning to fall in earnest and we drove along a wintry Christmas scene with animated light displays in Niagara Falls’ Victoria Park.

    The next morning we headed for Port Huron, Michigan and encountered some light to medium snow showers along the way and I got some great winter photos. We made it back to Bloomington and my son Rob’s house in time for me to tuck Sierra (girl, 6) and Walden (boy, 4) into bed. The next day we celebrated Thanksgiving Day with a traditional dinner of turkey and trimmings, made all the more tastier because for the first time in years, I didn’t have to prepare any of the meal. It’s good to be the Grandpa, to paraphrase Mel Brooks.

    On Friday, we walked up and over the ridge to chop down a Christmas tree with Rob. He chose a 15' high pine tree which we hauled back and constructed a safe and sturdy stand to hold it. On Saturday we started our drive home, but stopped off to have breakfast with some friends in Louisville on the way.

    It’s Tuesday night, Dec. 3 as I’m typing these final words for Personal Notes which explains why you didn’t receive your Digest on the first of the month as usual.

    May the peace and joy of this season fill your hearts and carry you happily into the New Year.

    Movies we watched this past month:

    Notes about our movies: Many of the movies we watch are foreign movies with subtitles. After years of watching movies in foreign languages, Arabic, French, Swedish, German, British English, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, and many other languages, sometimes two or three languages in the same movie, the subtitles have disappeared for us. If the movie is dubbed in English we go for the subtitles instead because we enjoy the live action and sounds of the real voices so much more than the dubbed. If you wonder where we get all these foreign movies from, the answer is simple: NetFlix. For a fixed price a month they mail us DVD movies from our on-line Queue, we watch them, pop them into a pre-paid mailer, and the postman effectively replaces all our gas-consuming and time-consuming trips to Blockbuster. To sign up for NetFlix, simply go to and start adding all your requests for movies into your personal queue. If you've seen some in these movie blurbs, simply copy the name, click open your queue, and paste the name in the Search box on NetFlix and Select Add. Buy some popcorn and you're ready to Go to the Movies, 21st Century Style. You get to see your movies as the Director created them — NOT-edited for TV, in full-screen width, your own choice of subtitles, and all of the original dialogue.
    P. S. Any rumors that Netflix doesn't deliver DVD's promptly is hogwash so far as I am concerned. Our new DVD's are delivered with a couple of days of the old ones being put out on my mailbox.
    Hits (Watch as soon as you can. A Don't Miss Hit is one you might otherwise ignore.):
    “Hart’s War” – somewhere I had heard this was not one of Bruce Willis’ best movies and I avoided it. The problem for Willis fans is that he is not the leading character of the movie, rather the young actor playing Lt. Hart is. A Senator’s son, kept away from the battlefields of WWII, Hart ends up in a German prisoner of war camp over which Willis presides as the highest ranking American officer emprisoned there. With some hints of “Stalag 17", Hart endures one shabby treatment by the Colonel: relegated to the enlisted men’s barracks, forced to add two black flyers to an already full barracks, and forced to defend one of the flyers from a murder charge during a Court Martial in the camp. The tension in the camp is so thick, the movie is like in slow motion until the denouement at the end when all is revealed and the Colonel finally takes an order from the Lieutenant. This is a good movie. Don’t pass it up.

    “Collateral Damage” — and there was a lot of collateral damage to everyone who got close to the three principals of this movie, and also to the three principals. Arnold Schwarzenegger was one and the other two consisted of the terrorist known as the Wolf and one accomplice. The pyrotechnics that were lacking in the script showed up in the numerous building explosions. You knew how this was going to turn out – Arnold would survive, all banged up, and the bad’uns would die after a brutal, after several brutal fights. Of course, the bad’uns play dirty – they lie, cheat, mislead and kill innocents, something the next governor of California, the first real governor since Ronald Reagan, cannot let alone till justice is done and the end of the film rolls out of the projector. Clickety-clackety-clickety-clackety-click . . .

    “The Birthday Girl” — no relation to the “The Goodbye Girl” — this was the “Hello, Girl” from Russia with love, a new “Bond” movie, not James Bond, but John in Bonds. A combination of Mail Order Bride, Bonnie and Clyde, and Portnoy’s Complaint — John thinks he’s living the stories in his bondage magazines come true with Nicole Kidman as the “Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down” girl of his dreams. Ben Chaplin is no Antonio Banderas — he’s got the charisma of a codfish on Valium, but there’s a very nice aspect to this movie: you don’t have the vaguest idea of how it’s going to turn out until the end — and then some. This ain’t no Arnold movie.

    “Master Spy: The Robert Hanssen Story” a CBS Sunday Night movie starring William Hurt Here was a man who apparently became a spy because his head hurt, he like to trade sexy photos of his wife with an old school chum, and he’d rather sell secrets to the Russians than borrow money from his father. Okay, he also had a talent for lying and making promises he didn’t keep: to his wife, to the FBI, and to God. How could CBS possibly portray a philandering, treasonist, and Godless human being in a flattering light? Well, look at the Evening News each night.

    “Jack and the Beanstalk” on Hallmark Channel, a rendition by Jim Hart and Brian Henson. Catch this one next time around. It’s an insightful and thoughtful look at the real bad guy in the fairy tale. Was it the giant, Jack, the magic beans guy, or who? And what did happen to Jack and his mother after the giant fell to Earth at the base of the beanstalk. Did they both live happily ever after such a marauding stunt? Inquiring minds want to know and Hallmark always cares to send the very best. They did so this time. A movie every bit as good as their “O Pioneers” rendition recently. With Matthew Modine in a creditable performance as Jack, backed by Mia Sara, John Voight, Richard Attenborough, Darryl Hannah, and Vanessa Redgrave. This is a story of the bigger than life gods as they intervene in our time much as they did during the time of the ancient Greeks..

    Misses (Avoid At All Costs): We attempted to watch these this month, but didn't make it all the way through on most of them. Awhile back when three AAAC horrors hit us in one night, I decided to add a sub-category to "Avoid at All Costs", namely, A DVD STOMPER. These are movies so bad, you don't want anyone else to get stuck watching them, so you want to stomp on the disks. That way, if everyone else who gets burnt by the movie does the same, soon no copies of the awful movie will be extant and the world will be better off.

    “Showtime” – a movie with Robert DeNiro and Eddie Murphy that almost made it. Never got close to the chemistry of Nolte and Murphy nor to that of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. We definitely won't see "Showtime II." Even Rene Russo’s presence couldn’t save the movie. Maybe because she kept her clothes on. Or the fact the script sucked. Or that they tried to do too many things and did none of them well.

    Your call on these — your taste in movies may differ, but I liked them:

    “The Time Machine” – the 2000 reprise of H. G. Wells’ famous story. This time the Eloi were cliff dwellers and brown-skinned. Industrious and un-ambitious – rather paradoxical combination that only Hollywood could dream up. The original movie had the library consisting of four inch diameter thin, shiny disks that when spun around gave visual and audio presentations. Sounds like today’s CDROMs and DVDS, doesn’t it? Couldn’t re-use that concept — it’s too close to our current reality. The library this time was a holographic “Photonic” — a black man with an attitude. A goofy idea, but it worked to spice up an otherwise rather dull movie. Possibly our libraries will look like that next time anyone dares to update the timeless “Time Machine” story. Give me Rod Taylor and the fashion shop across the street any time. And I missed the dinner with his friends that was left out of this one. The meeting with Philby’s son, too. The spooky leader of the Morloch’s and the destruction of the Moon was a new addition. Also was the Hollywood message about the dangers of nuclear explosions and large corporations. Only reason to view this movie is for comparison with the original and much better rendition of Wells’ classic tale. Wait for cable on this one.

    “Call Me Claus” — one might have thought this movie could have been made by “HO HO HO Productions”, but by “ONE HO Productions”? The mind boggles at the thought — and that’s just the beginning. Now stretch your mind and imagine that Saint Nicholas for the next two centuries will look like Whoopi Goldberg. That’s the premise of this movie, which manages to entertain — in spite of 90 percent of the movie being filled with her scowling, Santa-hating Lucy character. But if you have a good traditional Santa with a sparkle and a sense of humor, how can you go wrong? This St. Nick was every bit as good as the one in “Miracle on 34th Street” and he carried the bulk of the movie. The Shop-A-Lot Channel, for which Lucy worked and our lovable Santa sold stuff, provided a chance for another gratuitous Hollywood message – a big business full of people who go about constantly talking about how they’re ripping off their customers by selling them schlock! Frankly, this constant projection from Hollywood seems rather self-indicting to my mind. Every large company I worked for, which included Union Carbide, Lockheed Aircraft, and Louisiana Power and Light Co., was full of people who took pride in the products produced by the company which paid our salaries.

    Cajun Joke:

    Boudreaux and Broussard were drinking over at T-Coon’s Bar one night, when T-Coon ran out of Dixie Beer. Embarrassed by not having any more of their favorite brew, T-Coon pulled out a large bottle of Jack Daniel’s whiskey and offered everyone in the bar a drink, and the one who made the best toast would get to take the bottle home.

    When it came to Boudreaux, he held his glass high and proposed a toast, “Here’s to spending the rest of mah life between the legs of mah wife!” Everyone applauded and chose Boudreaux as the winner of the best toast.

    When Boudreaux got home, Marie saw the big bottle of Jack Daniel’s and axed him, “Boudreaux, where you got dat Jacques Daniel from?”

    “Oh, Marie, you would have been proud of me! I won it for giving the best toast of the night!”

    “Mais, wat do you say?”

    Boudreaux suddenly realized that maybe Marie wouldn’t like what he actually said, so he changed it bit. “I said, ‘Here’s to spending the rest of mah life sitting in church beside muh wife.’”

    “Oh, Boudreaux! You is a poet, and don’t know it! That was very nice, Cher.”

    The next day Marie runs into T-Coon down at Hebert’s General Store. T-Coon said, “Marie, you know dat Boudreaux won a bottle of Jacques Daniel last night for giving a toast about you, Cherie?”

    “Mais, of course! He told me first t’ing when he got home. But I was beaucoup surprised, me! You know, he's only been dere twice — and de other time I had to pull him by de ears to make him come!”

    Christmas Story:      The Crocheted Tablecloth

    The brand new pastor and his wife, newly assigned to their first ministry, to reopen a church in urban Brooklyn, arrived in early October excited about their opportunities. When they saw their church, it was very run down and needed much work. They set a goal to have everything done in time to have their first service on Christmas Eve.

    They worked hard, repairing pews, plastering walls, painting, etc., and on Dec. 18 were ahead of schedule and just about finished. On Dec 19 a terrible tempest - a driving rainstorm hit the area and lasted for two days. On the 21st, the pastor went over to the church.

    His heart sunk when he saw that the roof had leaked, causing a large area of plaster about 6 feet by 8 feet to fall off the front wall of the sanctuary just behind the pulpit, beginning about head high. The pastor cleaned up the mess on the floor, and not knowing what else to do but postpone the Christmas Eve service, headed home. On the way to the noticed that a local business was having a flea market type sale for charity so he stopped in.

    One of the items was a beautiful, handmade, ivory colored, crochet table cloth with exquisite work, fine colors and a cross embroidered right in the center. It was just the right size to cover up the hole in the front wall. He bought it and headed back to the church.

    By this time it had started to snow. An older woman running from the opposite direction was trying to catch the bus. She missed it. The pastor invited her to wait in the warm church for the next bus 45 minutes later.

    She sat in a pew and paid no attention to the pastor while he got a ladder, hangers, etc., to put up the tablecloth as a wall tapestry. The pastor could hardly believe how beautiful it looked and it covered up the entire problem area.

    Then he noticed the woman walking down the center aisle. Her face was like a sheet. "Pastor," she asked, "where did you get that tablecloth?"

    The pastor explained. The woman asked him to check the lower right corner to see if the initials, EBG were crochet into it there. They were. These were the initials of the woman, and she had made this tablecloth 35 years before, in Austria.

    The woman could hardly believe it as the pastor told how he had just gotten the tablecloth. The woman explained that before the war she and her husband were well-to-do people in Austria. When the Nazis came, she was forced to leave. Her husband was going to follow her the next week. She was captured, sent to prison and never saw her husband or her home again.

    The pastor wanted to give her the tablecloth; but she made the pastor keep it for the church. The pastor insisted on driving her home, that was the least he could do. She lived on the other side of Staten Island and was only in Brooklyn for the day for a housecleaning job.

    What a wonderful service they had on Christmas Eve. The church was almost full. The music and the spirit were great. At the end of the service, the pastor and his wife greeted everyone at the door and many said that they would return. One older man, whom the pastor recognized from the neighborhood, continued to sit in one of the pews and stare, and the pastor wondered why he wasn't leaving. The man asked him where he got the tablecloth on the front wall because it was identical to one that his wife had made years ago when they lived in Austria before the war and how could there be two tablecloths so much alike?

    He told the pastor how the Nazis came, how he forced his wife to flee for her safety, and he was supposed to follow her, but he was arrested and put in a concentration camp. He never saw his wife or his home again for all the 35 years in between.

    The pastor asked him if he would allow him to take him for a little ride. They drove to Staten Island and to the same house where the pastor had taken the woman three days earlier. He helped the man climb the three flights of stairs to the woman's apartment, knocked on the door and he saw the greatest Christmas reunion he could ever imagine.

    5. RECIPE of the MONTH for December, 2002 from Bobby Jeaux’s Kitchen:
    (click links to see photo of ingredients, preparation steps)
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Wild/Long Grain Rice Mixture

    Last month we presented a recipe for Burchart Bread, including a photo. We've decided to add a new feature to the Digest with a special recipe from Bobby's personal collection of recipes each month, with photos included where possible. We begin this month with instructions for making a basic rice dish that Chef Bobby Jeaux includes in many of his other dishes. Try this one out and use it in all your rice dishes. [Wild rice needs a longer cooking time than long grain rice, unless you buy Gourmet House Quick Cook Wild Rice. Then you simply put 2 cups of long grain rice and the Quick Cook wild rice together and only 3 ½ cups of water – no need to cook them separately. Total time is only 25 minutes. Only way I cook it now that I can buy Quick Cooking Wild Rice dependably from this website:]

    Wild/Long Grain Rice Mixture Ingredients

    2 cups of Uncle Ben or similar parboiled long grain rice
    1 tsp Salt
    2 oz [½ pack] of Reese's or similar wild rice uncooked.
    1 tsp Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    4 cups of water
    Put 1 of the 4 cups of water in pot. Add salt, olive oil, wild rice.
    Bring to boil. Lower fire to medium low after it comes to boil. [Simmer or light boil]
    Cook 1 hr uncovered. Add more water if necessary, so it doesn't dry up.
    Cooking Instructions for Long Grain Rice:
    Add remaining water, bring to boil again on high heat.
    Add 2 cups of long grain rice now, stir well until returns to boil.
    Cover with tight fitting lid, place on lowest fire for 25 minutes.
    Fire off. Remove cover and stir to ensure all water is absorbed. If not, use a little less water next time.

    Ready to eat. Del and I use this for any dishes we eat over rice. Examples to look for in the future to eat over rice or which incorporate this rice dish: Eggs over Rice; Potato Stew, Green Beans and Potatoes; Crawfish Etouffee, Crawfish Eggplant Dressing, Mesquite Chicken and Rice, Redfish Courtboullion, Wild Game Sauce Piquante, and Jambalaya, just to name a few.

    Freezing/Re-heating Instructions for Wild Rice Mixture:

    This rice mixture freezes indefinitely and over the years I've evolved a method of freezing it that allows us to extract only two portions of rice from the frozen package. This comes in handy for eggs & rice, a favorite weekend breakfast for me and Del, and any other warmed-up leftovers that are served over rice, such as red beans & rice.

    First, Click Here to take a look at how I add the rice to a Ziplock Bag using my Patented EZ-Top Ziplock Bag holder. Squeeze out all the air, seal zipper, then create three rows like this. Next, fold the Ziplock Bag like this before placing in your freezer on a flat surface.

    After freezing, you can easily remove one of the three rows and stash the other two back into freezer. Place the frozen row, break in half if necessary, into a glass covered dish, add about a teaspoon of water, and microwave for about 2 to 3 minutes. Let sit for about 5 minutes for dried frozen rice to re-absorb all its original moisture, and Voila! you have fresh cooked rice in only a few moments of preparation time.

    In this featured recipe section I will only include dishes that Del and I cook for ourselves, our guests, and our family.
    Bon Appétit!

    6. POETRY by BOBBY from Flowers of Shanidar:
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Every Day Is Christmas Day

    Every birth is a virgin birth
    Every child a holy child
    Every mother a blessed mother
    And every day is Christmas Day.

    Every home is a hallowed ground
    Every hearth a hallowed cave
    Every bed a saintly bed
    And every day is Christmas Day.

    Every food is a blessed food
    Every drink a sacred wine
    Every meal a communion feast
    And every day is Christmas Day.

    Every plant is a sacred plant
    Every flower a sacrament
    Every night a holy night
    And every day is Christmas Day.

    Every word is a sacrament
    Every song a sacred psalm
    Every tree a Christmas tree
    And every day is Christmas Day.

    Every friend is a faithful friend
    Every friendship without an end
    Every gift a holy gift
    And every day is Christmas Day.

    [This poem written by Bobby Matherne on June 8, 1990. Inspired by Alice O. Howell' book, "The Dove in the Stone." She talks about every birth being a virgin birth because the womb creates a new placenta every month for the baby to be created in. Like the new crisp white filter you put in your coffee pot every morning to make your coffee with, she said. It was an easy step from there to considering every child a holy child and every mother a blessed mother, and thus every day is Christmas Day because a holy child is being born somewhere every day.]

    7. REVIEWS and ARTICLES for December:
    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

    1.) ARJ2: An Autobiography by R. G. Collingwood

    This author I have been acquainted with for some time as the man who said, "All history is the history of thought." I have often misquoted him as saying that "all history is the history of ideas." Probably I did so because it seemed to make more sense to me that way, once I had lost track of the original quotation of Collingwood, probably in some work of Owen Barfield. As I consider the situation today, it does seem to me that ideas are like the wealth of which thought is but the visible currency. A man who is wealthy can only be known to be so when he flashes some currency or evidence of previously spent currency in a manner that is visible to others. History as a repository of ideas can only become visible when one examines the thoughts or evidence of previous thoughts.

    Want to learn more about Collingwood, read his “An Autobiography”? Want to learn less? Read the review:

    2.) ARJ2: Desert Places by Robyn Davidson

    When a woman decides to reprise her 1700 mile trek alone across the desert on the western edge of Australia in the desert on western edge of India, one would expect the experience to be similar and one would be wrong. For one thing being alone in India as a foreigner is a very foreign experience to Indians and they would not allow it. In a country where one rupee can hire a dozen helpers whose help it’s hard to say no to, it’s equally hard to ever be alone. And yet, surrounded by people who talked incessantly in many languages, none of which she understood, Robyn Davidson was very much alone much of the time, even in the midst suffocating masses of people.

    Ever considered chucking it all and moving to India to get away from it all. Read this review first and you may find that what you’re getting away to ain’t all that great. Sometimes you can have more fun thinking about going than actually going.

    3.) ARJ2: Thucydides Speeches of Pericles by H. G. Edinger

    One cannot read the funeral oration of Pericles without having a sense of deja vu even if one had never read or heard of the speeches before. Here's apassage that affected me that way. It is the very opening words of his funeralspeech. Read it and see if you have a similar sense:

    [page 32] Many of those who have spoken here in the past have praised the custom of delivering this eulogy. They have felt it was right to make such a speech honoring the soldiers who have fallen in war. As for me, our performance of this burial suffices to show respect for the glories of these men, who have shown their bravery by their performance in battle. You have just seen the deep respect demonstrated in this burial solemnized by the state. Our belief in the valor of these men should not depend on whether one man's oratory is good or bad. The burial ceremony itself is preferable to the risk of putting the acts of bravery of numerous men into the custody of a single orator who might speak well or badly.
    Now read what a modern day Pericles wrote about soldiers who had fallen in war a short 140 years ago:
    We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.

    Sounds familiar? Read the rest of the review at:

    I hear often from my Good Readers that they have bought books after reading my book reviews. Keep reading, folks! As I like to remind you, to obtain more information on what's in these books, buy and read the books — for less information, read the reviews.

    My reviews are not intended to replace the purchasing and reading of the reviewed books, but rather to supplant a previous reading or to spur a new reading of your own copy. What I endeavor to do in most of my reviews is to impart a sufficient amount of information to get the reader comfortable with the book so that they will want to read it for themselves. My Rudolf Steiner reviews are more detailed and my intention is bring his work to a new century of readers by converting his amazing insights into modern language and concepts.
