Oh, yeah

Ziggy played guitar
Jamming good with Weird and Gilly
And the Spiders from Mars
He played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man
Then we were Ziggy’s band

Ziggy really sang
Screwed-up eyes and screwed-down hairdo
Like some cat from Japan
He could lick ’em by smiling
He could leave ’em to hang
They came on so loaded, man
Well-hung and snow-white tan

So where were the spiders
While the fly tried to break our balls?
Just the beer light to guide us
So we bitched about his fans
And should we crush his sweet hands?

Ziggy played for time
Jiving us that we were voodoo
The kids were just crass
He was the nazz
With God-given ass
He took it all too far
But, boy, could he play guitar

Making love with his ego
Ziggy sucked up into his mind, ah
Like a leper messiah
When the kids had killed the man
I had to break up the band

Oh, yeah

Ziggy played guitar

If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.

A Necessary ending should not usually come as a surprise, but be the last step of a lot of effort to help the person come around.

I found this really cool video of the Sun and all the planets as shot from various space craft…

A Reading from the Book of Wisdom.

The souls of the just are in the hand of God,
and no torture shall touch them.

In the eyes of the foolish, they seemed to have died;
and their departure from this life was thought to be an affliction
and their going forth from us to be their utter destruction.

But they are in peace.

For even if they are punished in the eyes of men,
their hope is still full of immortality.

Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed,
because God tried them and found them worthy of himself.

Like gold in the furnace, he proved them,
and like a sacrificial offering, he took them to himself.

Those who trust in him shall understand truth,
and the faithful shall abide with him in love:
because grace and mercy are with his holy ones,
and his mercy is with his elect.

The Word of the Lord.
