    "Cross" by James Blackshaw

    Healing music for a Saturday from English 12-string guitar virtuoso/composer James Blackshaw. From his latest record, The Glass Bead Game, on Young God Records:

    Fear of Sitting Quietly

    Why fear gnosis? For it is but “knowing”.

    If Jesus Christ is the Way, it’s truth and it’s life, then surely the end of knowledge points to this.

I’ve always felt that the 700 Club feigns a nitty grittyness […]

    "Jokerman" by Bob Dylan (music video, click here!)


    This is the first image from the video. I encourage everyone to take the time to watch it, whether or not you’re interested in Dylan. And for those of you who are, this song is one of his real gems from the ’80s.

    Shelter From the Storm, Bob Dylan

    To Earthward, by Robert Frost
