Taking A Break

This past week has been a bit up and down. NH and Maine passed same sex marriage laws - YAY! And we find out more gay and lesbian soldiers have been kicked out of the military - BOO. Obama continues to morph into Bush, as I have noted on numerous occasions, but most recently based on Chris Hedges' EXCELLENT article, "Obama As A Brand." Barney Frank has turned from being a representative of the people to being ACORN's representative. Nancy Pelosi says the Executive has the power to oversee budgets for private companies like GM, not Congress (H/T to jbjd). For some silly reason, I thought THEY held the purse-strings to our money, not the Executive Branch. And on it goes.

I think we all deserve a break, don't you? For your viewing and listening pleasure, I have three selections from Loreena McKennitt, the Canadian singer. The videos below were shot a the Alhambra. Sit back, relax, and prepare to be transported to a different time...

The Mystic's Dream:

The Lady of Shalott:

The Mummer's Dance:

And may you be well this day, and the days to follow.
