    How interesting that you should post this.
    The other day at Winter Patriot’s Someone had referred to Old Uncle Dave as oud which led me to comment on how much I love the sound of an oud.

    Hi BB,

    Thought I read that you like the oud, but it was at your place rather than Winter Patriot’s that I recall seeing you mention it. I’m also a big fan. I have some CDs at home and hope to be posting more — maybe just audio files as there’s not too much of a range at YouTube

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
