The Greatest Race

The Greatest Race — BooKs by cRaig loCk

“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well, that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

A NEW JESUS: Making Christ Relevant (more) to Us in Today's Uncertain World: Reaching People and "Finding God"* Inside and OUTSIDE the/of Church

Come, they told me
Our new born king to see
Our finest gifts we bring
To lay before the king.
This is to honor him
When we come.
Baby Jesus,
I am a poor boy too
I have no gift to bring
That’s fit to give a king.
But may I play for you

on my drum
Mary nodded
The ox and lamb kept time
I played my drum for him
I played my best for him.
Then he smiled at me
Me and my drum.

I Am Flailing, I Am Flailing.


We interrupt these proceedings for a short message, whinge from our sponsor. WTF ! Last week I carefully prepared a post for today and scheduled it to appear while I was out. Did it publish, No. Can I find it, No. Yet the previous one went through sweetly. Having more faith than I probably should have I did not have a written record of the records I chose, expecting the post itself to be adequate record. So over 12 hours later than expected I present you with probably a totally different list of songs to enjoy(?).

Last week a good friend mentioned Annie Lennox as a favourite of hers. I have to admire her good taste. Here, just for you Andrea, no-one else will listen.

Going a bit further back now to 1966, grab your flower power shirts and your flares. Prepare yourself for a sigh of the young…

The Hoppity Brain


As most of you ill have gathered by now I’m a pantster rather than a plotter. I confess that my books were pretty much the same way but I don’t think I mind being predictable as long as you can’t predict what I’m going to play. This week I’m going to start with a Beatles tune. There were many well known and lesser known ones I liked but this one always stood out for me. From the 1967 Sgt Pepper’s album

In February 1967,Paul McCartneyread about Melanie Coe, a 17-year-old A-level schoolgirl from Stamford Hill, north London. She went missing without her car, cheque book and spare clothes. Her father was quoted as saying, “I cannot imagine why she should run away. She has everything here.”

From 1973 comes a treat

Back to 1967 now for a band from Oxford, Ohio. Dubbed as the first Bubblegum music which…

Decididamente, não é por acaso que voltamos a discutir o indiscutível, nos últimos tempos. Há um projeto claro que exige, para sua execução, que se fixe o olhar apenas no passado, desconsidere o presente e perca a fé no futuro. Essas três premissas são exatamente o contrário do que fazem povos e nações que controlam seus destinos. Olhar para o passado é válido como aprendizado, não como idolatria. Desconsiderar o presente é não dar valor ao que já se conquistou em conhecimento e progresso, gerando descontentamento sem rosto e razão. Perder a fé no futuro é o primeiro passo para se depositar na mão dos outros decisões que precisariam ser nossas; é terceirizar sonhos e esperanças.

A discussão do já esclarecido e comprovado é um retrocesso. Podemos dar exemplos claros disso. Foi com Pitágoras, seis séculos antes do nascimento de Cristo, que surgiu a noção da esfericidade da Terra. Aristóteles…
