For Your Pruning

28 09 2004

music: Sausy Sailor by the Wailin’ Jennys~ very cool group, a new favorite

When Love speaks to you, believe in him,

though his voice may shatter your dreams,

as the north wind lays waste the garden.

For even as love crowns you, so shall he crucify you.

Even as he is for your growth, so is he for your pruning.

Even as he ascends to your height and

caresses the tender branches that quiver in the sun,

so shall he descend to your roots

and shake them in their clinging to the earth.

~Kahlil Gibran

It’s been a wonderful day 🙂 nothing in particular, well….. I guess the fact that Jesse and I have been dating for 3 months ( I can’t believe that’s all it’s been!) has contributed to my mood, but it’s also because I feel more in control of my emotions and life in general. I taught Jesse to merengue tonight 🙂 fun times. C.S. Lewis is one of the best writers I’ve ever encountered, but I don’t agree with his thoughts on male headship (see Mere Christianity ch. christian marriage) eh, no one’s perfect 😉

Lewis also argued against pacifism. You should read what he says. =p I don’t agree with him, and I don’t think he has good arguments on this issue. (I do like him on the whole).

He could also be considered racist, but I suppose one could say he was a product of his time. Eh well…you could say the same thing about Tolkien, But they’re both brilliant authors regardless.
Steph, if you sent me lyrics in French I’m sure I could find someone to translate them! And the movie…it doesn’t really have an official title, but I call it my “Kick Butt Women” movie…it’s really just a music video with slides. But I like it. 🙂
