..the serenity prayer

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
Amen.

–Reinhold Niebuhr

Requiescat in Pace

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will direct your paths.

Proverbs 3, 5-6

Just Wondering

If no-one hears or whispers your name,

If no-one sees or touches your face,

Are you still here?

Are you still real?

I can only imagine,

And my imagination can take me anywhere.

Far across a sunburnt sky,

To a land of sugar and spice,

and candlelit nights,

heavy perfumes

and lilting music that floats on a gentle breeze.

desert nights

… am I losing my sense of humour?

fame…not sure that a full cast 5  minute number based on adolescent boy’s sexual fantasies comlete with suggestive poses and double entendre is entertainment.

And I wonder what the teachers with the Yr 3 – 6 kids from a local primary school thought about it as well?

Is this pandering to the masses to get them into the theatre? But then how would that work when you don’t know what’s coming up on stage?

Would one lad, who wouldn’t normally go to such a production, boast to his buddies and then they fork out $70+ to go see it for themselves? I think not.

 So…it begs the question…why include this, potentionally quite offensive, choreography and lyrics?
