America … where the righteous will abide and the free assemble

“ALL countries, in the estimation of the one true God, are but one country, and all cities and villages are on an equal footing. Neither holds distinction over another. All of them are the fields of God and the habitation of the souls of men. Through faith and certitude, and the precedence achieved by one over another, however, the dweller conferreth honor upon the dwelling, some of the countries achieve distinction, and attain a preeminent position. For instance, notwithstanding that some of the countries of Europe and of America are distinguished by, and surpass other countries in, the salubrity of their climate, the wholesomeness of their water, and the charm of their mountains, plains and prairies, yet Palestine became the glory of all nations inasmuch as all the holy and divine Manifestations, from the time of Abraham until the appearance of the Seal of the Prophets (Muḥammad), have lived in, or migrated to, or traveled through, that country. Likewise, Mecca and Medina have achieved illimitable glory, as the light of Prophethood shone forth therein. For this reason Palestine and Ḥijáz have been distinguished from all other countries. Likewise, the continent of America is, in the eyes of the one true God, the land wherein the splendors of His light shall be revealed, where the mysteries of His Faith shall be unveiled, where the righteous will abide and the free assemble.

Melissa – Allman Brothers

I always thought that the Allman bros song Melissa should have had a version of the song from her perspective. The song is about his sentimental infatuation and memory of his relationship with her – but in reality, she may not have the same feelings for him. While he’s been riding freight trains for decades, she moved on with her life, found a mentally and financially stable man, remarried, and her kids are about to graduate school.

A View of NYC from Meadowlands NJ – Under Pressure

“Watching some good friends
Screaming Let me out”

Heard those lines on the radio from superstars Queen and David Bowie as I snapped these photos of NYC skyline on Saturday. With so many of us (myself included) discussing the suicide epidemic that humanity around the world is battling, those words have stuck in my head, and I continue to send out prayers to the souls of those who were lost, and their loved ones.

“Can’t we give ourselves one more chance
Why can’t we give love that one more chance
Why can’t we give love give love give love give love
Give love give love give love give love give love
‘Cause love’s such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the (people on streets) edge of the night
And loves (people on streets) dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure”
