And in our sleep
pain, which cannot forget
falls drop by drop
upon the heart
until in our own despair
against our will comes wisdom
by the awful graces of God.

(He who learns must suffer)

— Aeschylus *

Thanks for stopping by.  

 

As this site is visited by thousands of people outside of America, I figured a proper welcome was necessary.  About the name of the site.  I attended both Blues Brothers Movies on opening day, the grand opening of the House of Blues in New Orleans, and I attended Stevie Ray Vaughn's last concert in Dallas, Texas, prior to his death.  Plus the B.B. King's Blues Festival in Dallas and I have sung the blues myself extensively on many occasions.  I may have to change my site name as the Official House of Blues may be opening a location in Dallas and I will most likely spend all my time there... well not all of it.  The only person I am mad at is George Jetson - I truly believed I would have a flying car by now, but as much as I have run out of gas that could be a blessing.  I now have just my conscience as an editor, so you're pretty much getting pure Steele here, typos abound.  I became interested in computers and have been programming for many years now.     

 

Let us all dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago, as Robert Kennedy pleaded with us (*)on the day Martin Luther King Jr. died, shortly before his own death -

 

"To tame the savageness of man, and to make gentle the life of this world."

 

 

 

PEACE to all the peace loving people of this planet.  The God of Heaven and Earth is alive and well and still loves listening to His children, them that worship Him in spirit and in truth, no matter what denomination you're in or which mountain you worship on.  

 

Sincerely,

Few people are capable of expressing with equanimity opinions which differ from the prejudices of their social environment.  Most people are even incapable of forming such opinions.

The Three Men I Admire the Most: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost

 

Song Secret Journey - The Police

 

Upon a secret journey
I met a holy man
His blindness was his wisdom
I'm such a lonely man

And as the world was turning
It rolled itself in pain - Tsunami
This does not seem to touch you
He pointed to the rain - Katrina

You will see light in the darkness
You will make some sense of this
And when you've made your secret journey
You will find this love you miss

And on the days that followed
I listened to his words
I strained to understand him
I chased his thoughts like birds

You will see light in the darkness
You will make some sense of this
And when you've made your secret journey
You will find this love you miss

You will see light in the darkness
You will make some sense of this
You will see joy in this sadness
You will find this love you miss

And when you've made your secret journey
You will be a holy man
 


Spiritually Speaking:  It amazes me how something written over 2000 years ago is so relevant to this day.  The Bible does that to me a lot.  A page regarding these verses will be added as soon as possible.   One verse is "Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, and He shall exalt you (lift you up) in due time."  And, "Do not repay evil with evil for evil will repay itself - vengeance is mine saith the Lord."   The cool thing is I read it so much it all stuck in my mind and they pop into my head at the most amazing times, when they are most needed.  Consider the verse "Thy word have I hid in my heart Lord, that I might not sin against thee."   Sounds to me like the Lord is saying His Word enables us to lead lives pleasing to Him which would lead to better lives on earth.  Truly a blessing, and the verses come into play with situations occurring right now in our lives.  With the word safely hidden in your heart, those verses come forward when most needed.  One final verse, for Protestants - "Let that mind which was in Christ be in you also."  One way to get the mind which was in Christ in your head - read His Word.

HE turned it inside out so I could see, His spirit permeated me, your everywhere Father, for this I believe -

only through you I got this far, I pray and there you are, you're everywhere to me, your love is all we need, you make me whole and you make me believe.... I'm not alone.  (And neither are you—Michelle Branch Paraphrased-The Spirit Room) 

 

* - Greek literature quoted by Presidential candidate Bobby Kennedy when announcing that Martin Luther King had been killed only moments  earlier in Memphis.  Just two short months later, Bobby Kennedy was himself cut down by an assassin.   

That's why I'm very inspired by the quote from Robert Kennedy at Cape Town in the 1960's about Apartheid. He said,

"Every time a person stands up against injustice, it sends forth a tiny ripple of hope which is crossing one another from a million centers of energy, and daring to create a tide that can bring down the mightiest walls of injustice."

He's talking about what one person can do in transnational legal process to change the world. When he said it, he was in Cape Town, and now South Africa is a constitutional democracy. There are people who are living proof -- Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi -- that this pragmatic idealism, connecting intellect to action, a theory to practice, has the possibility to change the world for the better.
