no crack - but a crap challenge

All the demons from 2006 have to vanish, at least half of them. Yes, of course we can talk about leaders and politicians in our society who we would love to get rid of. But what does that do, if we don't start right here, right here on the messy desk and get rid of the substances and issues we battle with daily.
I challenge you all to take a spontaneous picture of your own mess!!!
Blessed be those who already found equilibrium ... I haven't reached that stage yet.
Listened to Beethoven's 9th Symphony last night where he takes Schiller's "Ode of Joy" and puts it to a chorus in his last movement. Man, this guy was a rebel and a punk! The composition is totally ludicrous and out of line with traditional "classic" composition methods of his time.


Joy, beautiful spark of the gods,
Daughter of Elysium,
We enter fire imbued,
Heavenly, thy sanctuary.

Thy magic reunites those
Whom stern custom has parted;
All men will become brothers
Under thy gentle wing.

May he who has had the fortune
To gain a true friend
And he who has won a noble wife
Join in our jubilation!

Yes, even if he calls but one soul
His own in all the world.
But he who has failed in this
Must steal away alone and in tears.

All the world's creatures
Draw joy from nature's breast;
Both the good and the evil
Follow her rose-strewn path.

She gave us kisses and wine
And a friend loyal unto death;
She gave lust for life to the lowliest,
And the Cherub stands before God.
