Here at Seraphic Secret we try to remain optimistic. However, after six years of Obama, this state of mind becomes increasingly difficult to maintain.
IslamoNazis are on the march all across the globe. Iran edges closer to becoming a nuclear power even as Obama touts what a good friend Iran could be. ObamaCare is, as we knew it would be, a disaster. Perhaps most disturbing of all is the ubiquitous presence of the race baiting, tax cheating Al Sharpton in the White House. Sharpton is no ordinary professional demagogue like Barack Obama. Sharpton is a proven liar, and a toxic Jew-hater who provoked a pogrom in Brooklyn that lead to multiple deaths.
And this is the man who has become Obama’s de facto Minister of Blackishness, or something.
And so, as we move into 2015, we are wary of what the last two years of ObamaWorld will bring.
Seraphic Secret takes comfort in family, friends, and community.
And, as always, we are inspired by near perfection of some classical Hollywood movies that provide images that nourish the need for love and romance that promise a form of eternity.
Here is a clip from one of out favorite movies, Waterloo Bridge (1940), starring Vivien Leigh and Robert Taylor (b. Spangler Arlington Brugh), a tale of tragic love during wartime. Notice that once they start dancing there is no dialogue. The lighting, music, the movement, the reaction shots, the dousing of the candles is all that’s needed to evoke a torrent of conflicting emotions.
Karen and I wish all our friends and relatives a Happy New Year.
