An Arab Shepherd Is Searching For
His Goat On Mount Zion
Arab shepherd is searching for his goat on Mount Zion
on the opposite hill I am searching for my little boy.
Arab shepherd and a Jewish father
Both in their
Our two voices met above
The Sultan's Pool in the valley between us.
Neither of us wants the boy or the goat
get caught in the wheels
Of the "Had Gadya"
Afterward we found
them among the bushes,
And our voices came back
Laughing and crying.
Searching for a goat or for a child has always been
The beginning of a new religion in these mountains.
Little Goat (Had Gadya)
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.'

... 1904-2005... rest in peace
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.

so beat from school work last night that
i failed to refresh the birthday list on my
... what a day full of extraordinary talent... and
i'm not even including john ruskin, jules verne, dame edith evans,
king vidor, lana "get up we love you" turner, and nick
nolte... whew... must be something in the stars this day...
arrived today:global a go-go
- joe strummer & the mescalerosandy 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...
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?

can i let the day go without a post here...
yes... in a way... but no... here:
is monday before the tuesday we rip the whole place apart in the
money-making frenzy known as Street Scenes... year 31... hard
to believe it now sitting in this nealry silent classroom... just
about finished with some "grade report stuff"... hard
to believe that this time tomorrow the room will have been stripped
and showroom flats will have been raised... crazy day tomorrow...
maybe i'll get some pictures... ticks at the wiondows tell me
to go home... now...
