Merry Christmas to all blog readers and commenters (who celebrate this festive season).
"Yet with the woes of sin and strife

And hear the
I wish the men of strife would hush and there could be some peace in the world.
To end on a positive, I quote from Desiderata (a 1927 prose poem by Max Ehrmann):
"...And whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."
