An Arab Shepherd Is Searching For His Goat On Mount Zion

An Arab shepherd is searching for his goat on Mount Zion
And on the opposite hill I am searching for my little boy.
An Arab shepherd and a Jewish father
Both in their temporary failure.
Our two voices met above
The Sultan's Pool in the valley between us.
Neither of us wants the boy or the goat
To get caught in the wheels
Of the "Had Gadya" machine.

Afterward we found them among the bushes,
And our voices came back inside us
Laughing and crying.

Searching for a goat or for a child has always been
The beginning of a new religion in these mountains.

Yehuda Amichai

One Little Goat (Had Gadya)...
'Then came the Holy One, blessed be He, and slew the angel of death that killed the butcher that slaughtered the ox that drank the water that quenched the fire, that burned the stick that beat the dog that bit the cat that ate the goat my father bought for two zuzim.'

The New York Times > Editorial: When Math Is Worse Than Fuzzy...
We're with the fiscal watchdogs in Congress in believing that these budget numbers just aren't sustainable. Americans have to choose. We can have a social safety net that protects our retired citizens from poverty and makes sure they can afford adequate health care. Or we can have a small government with a tax code that has a 1950's mentality in protecting the wealth of the richest Americans at the expense of the middle class and the working poor.

arrived today:

global a go-go - joe strummer & the mescaleros
andy goldsworthy: rivers and tides

the former is wonderful... and introduced to me a couple (?) years ago by the coolest ska trombonist ever to grace the halls of carmel h.s. ... but the copy was flawed (or too advanced for any machine i could find to play it on). so now i've got my own unskipping disc of plenty good tunes... thanks alex

the latter... just now stripped of its suffocating celophane... comes highly touted by the coolest new environmental poet to grace the land... i'll get to this tempting dvd soon... maybe even tonight?
