Huapango:Natsumi Imamura

An exceptional Japanese harpist plays homage to one of Mexico's most well known classical pieces; Moncayo's Huapango.

The Builders - by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

All are architects of Fate,
Working in these walls of Time;
Some with massive deeds and great,
Some with ornaments of rhyme.

Nothing useless is, or low;
Each thing in its place is best;
And what seems but idle show
Strengthens and supports the rest.

For the structure that we raise,
Time is with materials filled;
Our to-days and yesterdays
Are the blocks with which we build.

Truly shape and fashion these;
Leave no yawning gaps between;
Think not, because no man sees,
Such things will remain unseen.

In the elder days of Art,
Builders wrought with greatest care
Each minute and unseen part;
For the Gods see everywhere.

Let us do our work as well,
Both the unseen and the seen;
Make the house, where Gods may dwell,
Beautiful, entire, and clean.

Else our lives are incomplete,
Standing in these walls of Time,
Broken stairways, where the feet
Stumble as they seek to climb.

Build to-day, then, strong and sure,
With a firm and ample base;
And ascending and secure
Shall to-morrow find its place.

Thus alone can we attain
To those turrets, where the eye
Sees the world as one vast plain,
And one boundless reach of sky.

We must face facts: 40% of Americans resent living in a democracy

And would rather live in a community of genetically identical clones.

Is America the greatest country - answer rant - Newsroom. Jeff Daniels


Contrary to popular belief, we are not in a culture war. We are in fact in a nyeculturnyi war

A war with the 'некультурные' (the uncultured).

How appropriate that Trumpsters, who HRC called the deplorables, be described by the ultimate Russian insult - uncultured.
