Tuesday August 6, 2002

Filed under: General — m759 @ 11:23 PM

In honor of

Pope St. Sixtus II,

Pope St. Hormisdas,

Pope Callistus III, and

Pope Paul VI,

all of whom died on this date:

Bouncing butterflies

A music box butterfly tune

A lavender love butterfly vignette

Bob Lind himself sings

If you remember something there

That glided past you,

Followed close by heavy breathing,

Don’t be concerned.  It will not harm you;

It’s only me, pursuing something

I’m not sure of.

and a

Grand Finale!

But seriously…

A few words in memory of a great mathematician, AndrĂ© Weil, who died on August 6, 1998: 

“I wonder if it is because to-night my soul has really died that I feel at the moment something like peace. Or is it because right through hell there is a path, as Blake well knew, and though I may not take it, sometimes lately in dreams I have been able to see it?”

— Malcolm Lowry, 1947, Under the Volcano

There is a link on the Grand Finale site above to a site on British Columbia, which to Lowry symbolized heaven on earth. See also my website Shining Forth, the title of which is not unrelated to the August 6, 1993 encyclical of Pope John Paul II.
