Quote for the Windy Month of March:
Those who did not buy their loved one a Valentine gift that cost a lot of money should reflect on this quote from a great artist and lover:

Time is the money of love.

Out Our Way:
Another month full of seeing relatives from all parts of the family. My son Rob and his wife Jami with their three children, Sierra, Walden, and Emerson came from Indiana to stay with us for a week. The week after they left my Uncle T-Al Bascle, on my mother's side, died at age 80 in Bourg, Louisiana. A day later my dad's cousin, June Walker Loycano, died at age 77 in Harvey. Both of these funerals occurred during the peak of the Carnival season, all of which made for long days and jam-packed schedules for both me and Del.

Sierra, seven, loved to make up stories and during one long drive she told her stories non-stop to her baby brother, Emerson. Walden, six, loved to drive the 38 Roadster pedal car. The first of any of the grandkids who could pedal it backwards and forward and steer it like Dale Earnhardt, Jr. He used the back wheel like a wheelchair user would to get the car moving so the pedals would work easily. Emerson, two, is our newest and most rambunctious grandchild. Only 19 months old, he dragged a bar stool across the kitchen, climbed up on it, stretched out the length of his tiny body to be just able to reach the faucet, turned on the cold water, put his head under the nozzle and drank from it. All this he did without hesitation — as if he had been doing it all his life — and he is only 19 months old! I added his footprint to my cooking apron, the last print of our 17 grandchildren to be placed on the apron. I ran out of white paint, so we had to use the red paint for his footprint. The only place available on the apron was a spot that is right over my heart --- I call that red footprint "my red badge of courage" — which I earned by surviving 5 days with Emerson roaming through Timberlane.

This month holds Valentine's Day. Del's dad usually sent her a stuffed animal on this day, so I decided to buy a couple of white monkeys with their arms around each other for Del for Valentine's Day. These two reminded me of our first stuffed animals together – the brown monkeys with the linked arms which we got during 1977 and which we still cherish. When I put these two on Del’s desk, I noticed a curious plastic tab coming out of the back which said, “Pull to Activate” which I did and when I pressed the button on the male’s left arm, he began to sing, “I’ve got you to hold my hand” with his head bobbing in time to the music. Then the female voice sang, “I’ve got you to understand” and so it went till the last eponymous line, which they both bobbed in sync and sang, “I’ve got you, Babe”. It was Sonny and Cher singing inside the white apes. Del had a smile from ear to ear and kept cachinnating in spontaneous laughter. The animated set was well worth the price of two Valentine Greeting cards I paid for it. With the $5 Bonus Card discount, it was about $11 for the two apes. Amazing that they could design, build, and sell it at a profit for so little money. It may be built in China, but it’s American ingenuity that created the possibility for its existence and reaching Del’s desk at this time. See still shot nearby.

After writing in my Reminiscences review about how artists paint angels, I decided to acquire an angel painting from Maureen Bayhi, my artist daughter. It is entitled "Angel and Vase". I have attached a photo of it as it appears in the Timberlane Bathroom Art Gallery.

Did I mention Carnival was in full swing? The weather was dreary, cold and rainy for most of the parades and Mardi Gras, but we still managed to catch Endymion, Babylong, Adonis, and Rex parades and I have some photos to show at various places on this page. I always identify photos in this Digest using the ALT command, which means you can read my description by resting your cursor on the photo (with most browsers).

On the morning of the Galatoire's luncheon, I had to drive 90 minutes each way to Uncle T-Al's funeral. I left at 6:30 in the morning, visited with Aunt Clarice, Myra, and Phil before going to the church in Bourg where I met and talked to many of my Babin relatives before I had to leave about 10 to get to Galatoire's in the French Quarter for our Carnival Krewe's luncheon. After the luncheon, I drove home for a nap and to change into my white tie and tails for the four parties which followed. It was a full day which only ended at midnight when we opted out of the last party and headed home. Another marvelous Mardi Gras Ball, compete with a St. Charles Avenue streetcar ride by the Krewe, New Leviathon Oriental Foxtrot orchestra music, great friends, food and dancing the night away in a large old mansion on the Avenue. The King of the Ball was King Arthur, whose identity was secret, but that he enjoyed his reign was no secret. Hail Arthur!

I visited the large Krewe of Endymion's parade at its staging point and got to talk some friends from the nuclear power plant where I used to work. It was a beautiful day for my walk through City Park. The next parade we stumbled into was a West Bank parade called Adonis. Del and I were heading to her Mom's to help change some high overhead light bulbs for her, and the parade showed up between us and her house. So we did what New Orleanians do when interrupted by a parade: we growsed a bit for not planning more carefully, and then got out and caught some beads.

The big day for Carnival is Mardi Gras or Fat Tuesday and we usually do downtown on that day. The rain was omnious. All forecasts called for 80% chance of rain. We burnt some incense to the gods and headed out anyway, hoping for the best. And we got the best we could expect given the forecast. Chilly, misty weather, 250% relative humidity it seemed, but absolutely no rain the whole day. With the thin crowds due to the weather, we were actually able to walk the length of Bourbon Street. We had lunch at La Madeline's, hot soup and quiche, and then headed back to Canal Street for the Rex parade. We waited in the Casino until the parade started and walked out. Unfortunately we missed the Fighting Tiger Band of LSU which led off the Rex parade, but caught lots of beads and doubloons as the Krewe unloaded their cache of throws just prior to the end of the parade a few blocks ahead. The floats were spectacular this year, a throwback to designs from the beginning of the 20th Century. The theme was The Winged World and the winged creatures of mythology paraded before our eyes in living color.

The final parade of the year was the one on the Canal Street Ferry as we were carried across the Mississippi River to our West Bank destination. We were ferried through the dense fog coming to the Mardi Gras at 9 AM and we were ferried back across the great river in the dense fog when we headed home. Another Mardi Gras downtown New Orleans was over for us. But Mardi Gras itself continued well into the night over the television channels.

I watched and was enthralled by the three hour spectacle of the Rex and Comus Balls climaxing in the meeting of their two courts. It marks the end of Carnival. The end of flesh-eating by humans before the fasting and abstinence of Lent, as the name carni-val tells us. Carnival is all that, and even more.

There is no King of Rex, no King of Comus — what may seem to be a petty formality to some is the vesture of a deep truth about Carnival, about the origin and future destination of humankind and the cosmos. Rex symbolizes the essence of King-ness — the name means King — thus Rex is the King of Kings. To use the title King Rex or King of Rex is to be redundant and to gloss over the great mystery of Rex. Comus is not a king, but rather is a god. To use the title King Comus or King of Comus is to be erroneous and to gloss over the great mystery of Comus.

The Courts of Rex and Comus meet to signal the end of the Carnival season, the end of all flesh-eating for this cycle of the Earth’s progress around the Sun. There is also a deep meaning, a deep mystery revealed in the ritualized meeting of the two courts — the ritual signals the end of all flesh, the end of flesh-based human beings, the end of the Earth as a material body. To understand this mystery, one needs to view the regal vestures worn by Rex and Comus and their queens.

Rex and his queen wear white vestures with gold embellishments; Comus and his queen wear white vestures with silver embellishments. The gold of Rex symbolizes the golden rays of the Sun and the silver of Comus symbolizes the silver rays of the Moon. On the last night before the end of Carnival, Rex and Comus each has a Ball in which each Krewe meets and pays homage to its respective leader and his queen. These two Balls take place in one large hall which is separated by a huge curtain, and, at the climax of the evening, the end of Carnival itself is symbolized by the meeting of the Golden Court of Rex and the Silver Court of Comus. This ritual has been enacted at the end of each Carnival season in New Orleans for over a hundred years.

On the next morning, Catholics all over New Orleans have ashes applied to their foreheads while these words are said, “Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.” This is a ritualized enactment of the great mystery of the end of all flesh that occurs to each of us at the end of our individual lifetime on Earth, when we leave our flesh behind on the Earth to return to ashes and dust while our spirit returns to the spiritual world.

What is enacted in the ritual of the meeting of Rex and Comus is, rightly understood, the dissolution of the basis for all flesh, the Earth itself. One needs to understand that Earth first appeared as a planetary body able to support flesh-based human bodies when it separated from the Moon, that silvery orb which orbits the Earth. Before that separation, the Earth and the Moon were one, and together as a Silver globe they orbited the Golden globe of the Sun, from which the Silver globe had previously separated. Thus it will come to pass that the Earth will one day be re-attached to the Moon and the Silver globe will orbit the Golden globe of the Sun once more in that time when “sun and stars will rise and set no more.” Then the Silver Moon will combine with the Golden Sun and the end of all flesh, literally and figuratively, will occur.

This great mystery is beautifully enacted by the courts of Rex and Comus to mark the end of Carnival season each year. It is a mystery revealed in a slow-motion procession of two regal courts, one adorned in Silver and one in Gold, which orbit each other on the floor of a huge ballroom, and in the end finally merge into one body.

This is what the people of New Orleans have put on each year on the stage of the world for all to see for over a hundred years: what our ultimate destiny as human beings is. That is what kept me riveted to the screen as the spectacle of the meeting of the two Krewes of Rex and Comus took place. [If anyone would like to learn more about Rex and Comus or even to acquire a copy of the three hour video presentation, a Google search of [ WYES Comus ] will provide the links for further investigation.]

P. S. Just for comparison purposes, here’s how the meeting of Rex and Comus was mundanely described in the TV Focus of the Times-Picayune:

12 (WYES) Live coverage of the meeting of the Rex and Comus courts from 7:30 to 10:30 PM. The annual attendance at the season’s glitzy finale will be preceded by a day of Carnival specials and followed by a rebroadcast of the event.

And, last but not least, just before going to press with the March Digest, we drove up to Alexandria for the christening of our 8-year-old grandson, Thomas Gralapp, at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Catholic Church. Congratulations Thomas! Afterwards we drove across the Cajun Mason-Dixon line from Rapides Parish into Avoyelles Parish for some great boiled crawfish with the parents, godparents, grandparents and Thomas's friends.

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. Look for HD/DVD format movies which are now available from NetFlix.
Hits (Watch as soon as you can. A Don't Miss Hit is one you might otherwise ignore.):
“The Passion of Christ” grabs you from the opening scene and doesn’t let go until the credits roll. The audience was spellbound and silent. A sense of awe filled the room. Not a Christian was stirring. Tears flowed quietly. All other movie scenes of the passion are like puerile school plays by comparison. Masterful job. No back story. No back music. No over-acting. Just there. In your face. Mel Gibson is a brilliant film-maker — I hope he continues to make independent films. It is clear to me that Hollywood needs him more than he needs Hollywood.
“Possession” — let this movie take possession of you and you will receive a couple of hours of gripping entertainment. This is no exorcist movie — it’s a historical drama along the line of the “Red Violin” — with a literary rather than musical story line. Actually two story lines — the past-tense literary one and the present-tense amatory one. Randolph Henry Ash and Christabel LaMotte play the past-tense literary leads, and for the present-tense amatory leads: Gwenyth Paltrow plays the tense one and Aaron Eckhart plays the amatory one. This is a spectacular movie which weaves the past and present so seamlessly that the characters seem to occupy the same sets, as when Christabel steps onto a train platform in the 19th Century and the camera pans to the right and we see Gwenyth get out of an automobile in the 21st Century. Want a flavor of this movie? Here’s what Randolph says to Christabel:
They say that women change: 'tis so: but you
Are ever-constant in your changefulness,
Like that still thread of falling river, one
From source to last embrace in the still pool
Ever-renewed and ever-moving on
From first to last a myriad water-drops
This movie is an Abelard and Heloise story elegantly transposed into literary fiction and, thankfully, with a happy ending.
“Spy Game” with Robert Redford as the older spy who is retiring and Brad Pitt his younger protege who is learning the ropes. A spy thriller in which Redford never leaves the offices at the CIA on his last day before retirement and yet pulls the strings to get Pitt rescued from a Chinese prison. Fascinating part is that he does all this while spending most of his time in meetings with his superiors who have already decided to abandon Pitt to be executed by the Chinese and are suspicious of Redford’s motives. This movie clearly shows Brad Pitt evolving as the next Robert Redford, in case you haven’t noticed before.
“Tears of the Sun” is a Bruce Willis movie in which Bruce hardly talks. As leader of a SEAL team dropped into rebellion-torn Nigeria to extract an American doctor, priest, and nuns, he is all business. Gets the doctor on the plane against her will, leaving “her people”, the native villagers behind at the LZ --- early in the movie. This flight to safety is the dénouement of the movie. Something has to happen or there will be no movie. Sure enough, halfway back to the base, he tells the copter pilot to turn around. They land back at the LZ, he puts the children and cripples on the copter, and his team escorts the rest of the villagers and the doctor over the mountains into the next country, some 30 miles away, on foot. At one point, one of his team demands to know why he turned the copter around against orders, “LT, I’m with you regardless of the reason, but I want to know.” LT says, “When I find out, I’ll let you know.” Many of our most important decisions in life have to be explained this way, because their karmic implications are not conscious at the time we have to make them. A gripping movie from beginning to end.
“Frida” was the best friend, fellow artist, and constant companion of Diego Rivera, renown artist of Mexico. Occasionally she marries him. Her career as an artist begins when during a streetcar wreck, she is impaled by a steel shaft through her back and vagina. With broken legs, pelvic bones and ribs, she lived constantly in pain, and her art work glows with pain and anguish she experiences. This movie glows with the images of her artwork, which is artfully woven into the texture of the movie — especially transitions between scenes — some segues are so well done that the borders between art and reality are indiscernible. Amazing movie, amazing performances by three brilliant actors playing Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and Leon Trotsky. Art history in its finest hour and a half.
“Die Another Day” He’s back! Not just James Bond but the guy he kills before the opening credits. This movie shows high tech gadgets that I first saw between the covers of WIRED magazine a year ago. Wonder if the writers scour the magazine to write the next script. The invisible car trick was fun watching in full motion special effects versus reading the description and seeing the still photos in WIRED, but the technology was the same. The Ice Palace for the ICARUS Demo was another spectacular feat of motion picture art — collapsing and melting while Bond drives the invisible Car around its multi-level parking garage frantically. How do you find the thing in a parking lot, I wonder? It’s hard enough to find visible ones. Grab a bowl of popcorn and your favorite beverage --- this one will keep you in your seats all the way to the 38th Parallel.
“Maid in Manhattan” — Cinderella Redux, this time in New York City, starring JLo as a maid at a luxury hotel. Luckily we are spared the evil step-mother and ugly step-sisters routine. The only evil person extant was the social-climbing rich blonde who was oblivious as to how shallow and dull she really was. Jennifer Lopez looked the part of the lower class maid and dressed up real well for the ball. Bob Hoskins played the Chief Butler as well as Anthony Hopkins could have done. A fun romp between the sheets of the tabloid press.
“Igby Goes Down”Warning: this movie may be too intense for adults. Teenage Igby's older brother keeps giving him a copy of Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet in which Rilke suggests, “Go into yourself and see how deep the place is from which your life flows.” Igby is too busy doing exactly that to bother reading a book about doing it. (His brother is too busy reading to know he doesn't have a life.) Like the amount of time a basketball in an NBA All-Star game spends touching the floor --- that’s about how long Igby spends in school as he bounces from one lugubrious school to another. Unfortunately, life for Igby is one ‘air ball’ after another — life keeps shooting him towards a basket, but he never feels the net until his mother dies. Played by two Culkin brothers, young and older, Igby is the star of this movie, a blooming nova which eclipses the lesser stars of his parents, Susan Saranwrap and Jeff Goldfilander.
“African Queen” Watched it on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) all the way through with no interruptions. Anyone who hasn’t watched this since reaching an age older than Charlie and Rosie were in the movie, about fifty I expect, should watch this film classic again. I did and I was entranced by the movie. The two characters endure an epic odyssey as they experience Odysseus's stages of absence, wandering, longing, melancholy, separation, chaos, and deep adventure. They pass by a German fortress every bit as dangerous as Scylla with a hundred rifles firing at them. They survive a maelstrom of white water rapids every bit as life-threatening as Charybdis. They get hopelessly stuck in the mud a hundred yards from their goal and are rescued by a miracle rainstorm. They improvise a torpedo and sink a German warship. And in one of the greatest lines of all moviedom, they get married with nooses around their two necks by the ship’s captain who ends the ceremony with these words, “I now pronounce you man and wife. Let the executions begin.”

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.

"Bruce Almighty" was an almighty bore. How does Hollywood take a good movie and turn it into a bore? One is by showing all the truly funny spots in its previews, then by the time you see the movie, there's only a little filler material left to view. Try it. If you haven't seen any previews, you might find it a bit more amusing than "Dumb and Dumber."
"Welcome to the Dollhouse" where "Wiener Dog," as her pre-Junior High classmates derisively call her, is also hated by her mother, her teachers, and her too-pretty spoiled little sister. If you're waiting for a happy ending or even an interesting ending, forget it. Life goes on — she almost falls in love with a High School pop singer, she almost gets raped (but neither she nor the boy know how to proceed), she almost runs away from home, she almost gives a gratitude speech to the school assembly, and just when you think things will get better for our Cinderella, the movie ends and she prepares for more of the same in Jr. High.

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

“Private Benjamin” in which Goldie Hawn marries a man who is more interested in money than in his bride and gracefully dies in the act of consummating the marriage. She then volunteers for the Army and survives boot camp and goes to work for NATO. Meets a Frenchman who is more interested in other women than in his bride-to-be and she leaves him at the altar. Seems the Army made a woman out of her. A delightful movie to revisit.
“Message in a Bottle” — started off as a soap opera or tv movie until Paul Newman appeared on the screen and the whole movie made a quantum leap in quality. A sort of “Sleepiness in Outer Banks” with an ancient form of broadcasting replacing the radio of “Sleepless in Seattle.” Does this movie have a happy ending? Watch it and decide for yourself.
“Snow Falling on Cedars” a wintry tale of star-crossed young lovers during WWII. The girl is an American of Japanese descent whose parents forbid her to date non-Japanese. A heart-rending look at Japanese relocation during the War. A fisherman dies mysteriously at sea and the husband of the now older girl is accused of murder. The only hope for his acquittal lies in the hands and heart of her spurned American childhood lover. The story plays poignantly out as quietly as snow falling on cedars.
“Thirteen Conversations About One Thing” A confident DA listens to a guy at a bar and his life changes. A physics professor meets an English professor and his life changes. A would-be VP of an insurance company fires a guy who smiles all the time and his life changes. This movie is like watching a tapestry being woven — you never find out what the design will really be until the last thread is added. Amazing directing and acting jobs.

After USC Coach Pete Carroll passes away and enters the Pearly Gates, Boudreaux, the Archangel, takes him on a tour. He shows Pete a little 2-bedroom house with a faded University of Southern California banner hanging from the front porch.

"Dis is your home, Coach. Most people don't get their own house up here," Boudreaux explains.

Coach Carroll looks at the house, then turns around and looks at the one sitting on the top of the hill. It's a huge 2-story mansion with white marble columns and little patios under all of the windows. LSU flags line both sides of the sidewalk with a huge purple and gold LSU banner hanging between the marble columns.

"Tell God I said thanks for my home, Boudreaux, but let me ask you a question. How come I get this little 2-bedroom house with a faded USC banner while Les Miles gets a huge mansion with new LSU banners and flags flying all over the place? Why is that?"

Archangel Boudreaux replies, "Mais, dat's not Coach Miles's house, dat's God’s house."

5. RECIPE of the MONTH for March, 2004 from Bobby Jeaux’s Kitchen:

Iced Vichyssoise

Background on Iced Vichyssoise: I first had this marvelous soup served to me at Reuben's restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona about 1967. After many years of searching in vain on other menus for iced vichyssoise, I decided to make it myself. Thus I was first introduced to the marvelous plant called "leeks". Sometimes called "chilled leeks potato soup" — but I warn you that anyone who calls it cold potato soup will never be invited to Bobby Jeaux's Kitchen again. (This recipe adapted from Joy of Cooking Cookbook, 1975 Edition)


3 medium-sized leeks
      1/4 Tsp ground mace
      1 Tsp White Peppercorns
      1 to 2 cups of heavy cream (emergency substitute: 1 can evaporated milk)
      4 medium-sized red potatoes
      2 yellow onions
      4 cups of chicken broth or turkey stock
      Chopped chives or small shallots or green onions for garnish

      Wash leeks, cut off roots and discard. Chop thin slices until you reach the heavy green section. Discard the green portion remaining unchopped. Watch for any sand between layers of the upper section of leeks and wash away. See photos of unchopped leeks and chopped leeks. Chop and dice onions finely. Peel potatoes and cut into thin slices for quicking cooking during simmer stage. Chop chives into small bowl for garnish upon serving (See photo at top right.)

Cooking Instructions

      Cover bottom of large fry pan with Extra Lite Olive Oil, place a few pieces of diced onions into oil, and turn heat on high. Stay in kitchen till you hear onions sizzling and then add rest of onions and leeks and sauté until translucent. (Do not caramelize or allow to cook till yellow. You want a pure white soup.) When onions and leeks are ready, add potatoes and sauté a while before adding stock. Add white peppercorns and mace now. Turn heat to low and simmer until potatoes are soft, about 20 to 30 minutes.
      Mash mixture in pot until uniform small chunks. With a large Pyrex cup, scoop out the mixture and pass through a Vitamix blender. (Other devices may be used — what you want is a rich, uniform texture. You also want the peppercorns to be shredded and diasppear, so you should use pre-ground white pepper if you don't use a Vitamix.)
      Add in and stir well the heavy cream. Salt to optimum taste. (If you're not sure about "optimum" take a small amount aside and if you add two much salt, you can always discard it.)

Serving Suggestion
      This is a dish that is absolutely delicious served hot or iced. Del likes it hot; I like it iced. I say "iced" because just cold from the fridge is not enough; you want to serve this in an elegant bowl sitting over another bowl of crushed ice. (See above photo.) A silver bowl for the vichyssoise works best, if you have one. This is because silver transfers the heat away from the soup quickly, but a porcelain or stoneware bowl will suffice.

      Immediatly before serving, scoop into serving bowls, sprinkle mace across the top, and sprinkle the green chopped chives. See Photo below.
The lucious, creamy-white soup with the deep orange mace and the bright green chives makes an elegant and tasty presentation that you and your guests will savour to the final soupçon . . . Bon Appetite!

Other options
Best if prepared the day before or at least 4 hours if served iced. For serving hot, it can be served immedately after adding the cream. We like to have some hot and save the rest for iced vichyssoise the next day or evening.

6. POETRY by BOBBY from Rainbows & Shadows:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

A Vacant Lot

Scientists are a vacant lot
      with a For Sale sign out front.
They like to show what they are not
      and lift their vacant truths to flaunt.
Scientists are made not born,
      and as an adult they quickly learn
To stuff their hoary truths
      in journals and three piece suits.
To steal their bread appropriately
      in voting booths from you and me.
Like silver threads among the galled
      they leave the populace appalled,
Because the owner of the mines they salt
      has no use for their perfected fault,
But undaunted in their forensic foray,
      they shiver outside on a winter's day
And proclaim that global warming is on the way.
      Scientists are a vacant plot
      Weeds are all that they have got.
      Plants they want to trim and cut
      And leave us with nothing but
      A scorching concrete parking lot.

            Something Dewing

Everlasting day can no more freshen the earth with dew than everlasting night, but the change from night to day and from day back again to night.Owen Barfield
In the arms of everlasting day
      dew dries up and goes away,

But couched in the warm blackness of the night
      dew returns in wet delight.

Unless there be an ebb and flow,
      night-time come and daylight go,

No dew would e'er intrude
      upon the midnight quietude.

The spinning globe creates the dew
      and in its wake
It spins a web of life anew.

Thus may we forsake
      our pride, vanity, and hubris, too
Remembering our origin is humble as the dew.

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

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: Care of the Soul by Thomas Moore

"A Guide for Cultivating Depth and Sacredness in Everyday Life" is filled with Moore's prescriptions and processing for helping people to "honor their symptoms as the voice of their soul." How often have you gone to a doctor who told you: "This medical problem you're having is a message from your innermost part. Listen to it. Observe carefully what its message is. Allow yourself a quiet meditation period once a day for a month. Then, if you still need further help in deciphering the message from your soul, come back to see me." If Thomas Moore had his way, this would be considered as the first response of a doctor when a patient comes in.

Pay a visit to Moore's consultation room and perhaps you'll find your self leaving with a prescription you can live with. Buy the book or read the review for my take on this fine book then buy the book. It may be the best investment you'll ever make in your self.

2.) ARJ2: From Crystals to Crocodiles by Rudolf Steiner

Why read these questions and the answers Steiner gave to the workers at the Goetheanum? Weren't these merely blue collar workers, i.e., just craft people, who were working on the construction of a large building? Yes, but one must be careful about the word "merely" or"just" when discussing people who were in the presence of Rudolf Steiner when he spoke. One cannot, for example, call mere artists or just Russians the three artists, Andrei Belyi, Margarita Voloschin, and Assya Turgenieff , who wrote Reminiscences of Rudolf Steiner. Through their contact with Steiner they became more than artists and Russians, but spiritual scientists as well. Similarly, the workers in the Goetheanum were extraordinary human beings — they kept asking "What is the meaning of this building we are working on?" Unsatisfied with the answers they were given at first, they kept asking more questions, until their very asking became the source of a series of sessions Rudolf Steiner found time for in his busy schedule. Those sessions led to this series of books in which we eavesdrop on Steiner as he talks to the workers and helps them to understand better the world they and we live in.

3.) TSCC: The Soul Captain Chronicles, Chapter Four, 1971 A Memoir by Bobby Matherne

Chapter Four continues the The Soul Captain Chronicles, a Memoir of my life, which answers the question, "What if the Captain of my Soul came to me, gave me complete amnesia for my entire life, and then took me back to a day in my life?" With each Chapter the Captain moves me ahead a decade to witness another day, a decade hence. What happened to me in between? How did I get from where and who I was in one decade to where and who I was in the next? Join me in this adventure of recollection as each month brings another decade into focus for me and for you . . . Bobby Matherne

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.

In this section I like to comment on events in the world, in my life, and in my readings which have come up during the month. These are things I might have shared with you in person, if we had had the opportunity to converse during the month. If we did, then you may recognize my words. If I say some things here which upset you, rest assured that you may skip over these for the very reason that I would likely have not brought up the subject to spoil our time together in person.

This morning my wife and I watched The Hour of Power with its special guest, James Caviezel. Robert A. Schuller interviewed him about his experiences starring as Jesus in the Mel Gibson film "The Passion of the Christ". Caviezel explained how Mel tried to talk him out of making the movie. Here's how he responded: [Excerpt from complete interview which you can find here.]

JC: Yes, I got to feel a little bit of "Mel hell." That’s what we called it. When Mel called me the day after our first meeting, he tried to talk me out of playing Jesus. I asked him why, and he said, "You have no idea what we are going to try to do here and it’s going to come under a lot of pressure." I told him, "Look man, we’re all called to carry our own cross, and if we don’t carry it we’re going be crushed by the weight of it. And by the way, my initials are J.C. and I’m 33 years old." And he said, "You're freaking me out!"
Asked about how he felt as he was hit by lightning as he was hanging on the cross on Golgotha, Caviezel smiled and said he looked up and asked God, "You didn't like that take?" Here was a personable young man explaining the horrendous experiences he endured during the making of this film, not only lightning bolts, but hypothermia, four hours of makeup removal, twelve hours of shooting, then four more hours of makeup removal, followed by a scant four hours sleep till it was time to wake up again. When asked how the movie changed his life, he said something so alien to what we've been led to expect from a Hollywood movie star, he said, as best as I can recall, "This year during Lent, fasting is going to be more of a commitment to Him for me."

Two quotations from The Federalist Digest this month:

First one by Will Rogers:

"An old, long-whiskered man once said to Teddy Roosevelt: 'I am a Democrat, my father was a Democrat, my grandfather was a Democrat.' Roosevelt then said: 'Then if your father had been a horse thief and your grandfather had been a horse thief, you would be a horse thief?'" --Will Rogers

Second one from The Federalist Digest Brief:
I find it nothing short of amazing that the same ilk who urge that the federal bureacracy distribute prophylactics at no cost as preemptive strikes against diseased bodies abhor or knowingly ignore the prophlactic effect of preemptive strikes against diseased regimes. This thought prompts me to share with you my second quotation from The Federalist ( Digest Brief of 16 February 2004. (Both quoted with permission.)

From Federalist No. 04-07:

"...[T]he United States has established a hair-trigger reputation in matters of deadly agents of mass destruction — but apparently other rogue nations now believe that the burden of proof is no longer on us to establish that they have them, but rather on them to ensure the world that they do not. And that is not necessarily a bad thing if we ponder that the lives of thousands may hang in the balance. ...So it turns out that the emphasis on weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, and the subsequent effort to take out Saddam Hussein have had a powerful effect on such arsenals far beyond Baghdad. Without the removal of the Ba'athists, Libya would never have confessed to its nuclear roguery. Without the recent war, Iran would never have professed a desire to follow international protocols. Without the recent conflict, Pakistan would never have investigated its own outlaw scientists. Whether we like it or not, the precedent that the United Sates might act decisively against regimes that were both suspected of pursuing WMD acquisition and doing nothing to allay those fears, has had a powerful prophylactic effect in the neighborhood." — Victor Davis Hanson

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.
