Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

Ave Maria
Just as I was about to post a picture of VP Cheney walking with the Pope and title it "Dumb and Dumber"...

I was totally humbled by this:

I was raised a Catholic, and even though I have long railed against the patriarchal dictatorship that is the Roman Catholic Church, this song still gets to me, and this performance is stunning.

It's stunning in its perfection, majesty, clarity, technique, and purity. You cannot listen to this, and not appreciate it for its artistry, even if you don't appreciate the message, context, or the recipient.

Truly, sometimes art is for art's sake.

PS I still think the Pope and Cheney are " Dumb and Dumber"
