♪”Essential” – Music Theme

This week we’re gonna explore a fundamental,  existential theme. What does “essential” mean to you? Since what’s essential to one person may not apply to another, the concept  “essential” is as subjective as music itself.

With that being said, by default, the entire discography of Led Zeppelin is by (my) biased humble opinion – essential! Admittedly far from original consensus, but most applicable nevertheless.

Life is beautiful, music is a most wonderful expression of our heart, dreams, secret desires…

“Coeur Volant” (Performed by Zaz)

What keeps us going despite overwhelming odds and certain defeat, I believe a never surrender attitude and HOPE keeps us hanging on, which are essential to our survival:

♪The sun has left and forgotten me
It’s dark, I cannot see
Why does this rain pour down
I’m gonna drown
In a sea
Of deep confusion♪

Sometimes a little faith goes a long way, essential to our well being – Hard Time Killin’ Floor Blues!

Our Collective Soul knows:

Has our conscience shown?
Has the sweet breeze blown?
Has all kindness gone?
Hope still lingers on.
I drink myself of newfound pity
Sitting alone in New York City
And I don’t know why.

Are we listening?
Hymns of offering.
Have we eyes to see?
Love is gathering.
All the words that I’ve been reading
Have now started the act of bleeding
Into one.

So I walk up on high
And I step to the edge
To see my world below.
And I laugh at myself
While the tears roll down.
‘Cause it’s the world I know.
It’s the world I know.

At times, artists  need to strip down to the bare essentials: an empty church, a single microphone and the truth! Cowboy Junkies made history with The Trinity Session.

Perhaps we, as a people, should learn what’s really essential to be fully human – before death takes over!

O, Death
O, Death

Won’t you spare me over til another year
Well what is this that I can’t see
With ice cold hands takin’ hold of me
Well I am death, none can excel
I’ll open the door to heaven or hell
Whoa, death someone would pray
Could you wait to call me another day
The children prayed, the preacher preached
Time and mercy is out of your reach
I’ll fix your feet til you cant walk
I’ll lock your jaw til you cant talk
I’ll close your eyes so you can’t see
This very hour, come and go with me
I’m death I come to take the soul
Leave the body and leave it cold
To draw up the flesh off of the frame
Dirt and worm both have a claim

O, Death
O, Death

Won’t you spare me over til another year
My mother came to my bed
Placed a cold towel upon my head
My head is warm my feet are cold
Death is a-movin upon my soul
Oh, death how you’re treatin’ me
You’ve close my eyes so I can’t see
Well you’re hurtin’ my body
You make me cold
You run my life right outta my soul
Oh death please consider my age
Please don’t take me at this stage
My wealth is all at your command
If you will move your icy hand
Oh the young, the rich or poor
Hunger like me you know
No wealth, no ruin, no silver no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul

O, Death
O, Death

Wont you spare me over ’til another year
Wont you spare me over ’til another year
Wont you spare me over ’til another year

God bless us all, essential ONE♥

The European Union has imposed sectorial sanctions on five Russian banks, including the country’s biggest, Sberbank, as part of economic steps that Europe, along with the US, have taken against Moscow over the crisis in Ukraine.

The list, published Thursday, includes Sberbank, VTB Bank, Gazprombank, Vnesheconombank (VEB) and Russian Agriculture Bank (Rosselkhozbank).

These financial entities will be banned from raising capital on the EU’s capital markets.

The sanctions – targeting banks with state ownership of over 50 percent – enter into force on August 1 and will be valid for one year. The decision can be reviewed after three months.

“In order to restrict Russia’s access to EU capital markets, EU nationals and companies may no more buy or sell new bonds, equity or similar financial instruments with a maturity exceeding 90 days, issued…

There is only one take on the current Israeli slaughter of Palestinians, which Netanyahu, the demonic Israeli leader, declares will be a “protracted campaign” this time. We are witnessing yet again Israeli war crimes that are supported by the Great Moral West that is so concerned about the deaths of 290 passengers on MH-17 that they are about to drive the world to a major war, while Palestinian casualties pile up so fast that they are out of date by the time you put the numbers in a column. So far…

Death toll from E Ukraine clashes reaches 1,129

According to our political prognosticator, Lada Ray, this would be a drawn out conflict like Iraq, Ukr will be destroyed slowly over the next 2-3 years. Russia has no incentive (politically or financially) to “save” Ukr from itself. Remember, Ukr made a “deal” with the West to “destroy Russia”, they allowed criminal Western ideology to form a 5th column aka Nazi’s to take over via Washington’s puppet. Russia does not need the headache from these greedy Ukr. oligarchs or escalate tensions further and play into Nato’s script demonizing Russia further. Right now Russia is the model of diplomacy and reason because they can afford to be, they are emotionally and politically detached from Ukr, now that they have Crimea back, drop the rest. The civil war will continue to escalate like the middle east, more innocent ppl will pay the price, history repeats itself. The world needs to wake up and sanction America to stop interfering with world affairs.
