REQUEST PERMISSION TO COME ABOARD



CHARLESTOWN, Mass. (Jan. 14, 2008) The first major snowfall of the New Year blankets the USS Constitution. Despite the weather "Old Ironsides," remained open for free public tours. At 210 years-old, USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world, manned by 67 active-duty United States Sailors and visited by nearly half a million visitors annually.

How Long?

October 19, 2013

For 9 long years, Saul hounded David as “one hunts a partridge in the mountains” (1 Sam. 26:20). “How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever?” David prayed. “How long will You hide Your face from me? . . . How long will my enemy be exalted over me?” (Ps. 13:1-2).

Prolonged affliction often vexes us as well. We want a sudden solution, a quick fix. But some things can’t be fixed. They can only be borne.

But we can complain to God in our troubles. We have a heavenly Father who wants us to engage with Him in our struggles. He understands His children as no one else can.

When we turn to Him with our complaints, we come to our senses. In David’s case, his thoughts went back to life’s certainty: God’s love. David reminded himself: “I have trusted in Your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in Your salvation. I will sing to the Lord, because He has dealt bountifully with me” (vv.5-6). Sufferings may persist, but David could sing in the midst of his trials, for he was God’s beloved child. That’s all he needed to know.

A. W. Thorold writes, “The highest pinnacle of the spiritual life is not happy joy in unbroken sunshine, but absolute and undoubting trust in the love of God.”

Even in our troubles, God’s love can be trusted.

O yes, He cares; I know He cares,
His heart is touched with my grief;
When the days are weary, the long nights dreary,
I know my Savior cares! —Graeff
God’s love stands when all else fails.

Read: Psalm 13

How long, O Lord? Will You forget me forever? —Psalm 13:1
Bible in a Year:
Isaiah 56-58; 2 Thessalonians 2

Good week.

The weather has been amazing for October. We have dipped below freezing a few times in the morning. The highs have been in the low 50’s nearly all week.

No snow on the ground. We actually got a “Fall” this year.

Missing Man Setting

"The Empty Chair"

By Captain Carroll "Lex" Lefon, USN (RET), on December 21st, 2004

"In the wardroom onboard the aircraft carrier from which I recently debarked was a small, round table, with single chair. No one ever sat there, and the reasons, both for the table being there, and for the fact that the chair was always empty, will tell the reader a little bit about who we are as a culture. The wardroom, of course, is where the officers will dine; morning, noon and evening. It is not only a place to eat – it is also a kind of oasis from the sometimes dreary, often difficult exigencies of the service. A place of social discourse, of momentary relief from the burdens of the day. The only things explicitly forbidden by inviolable tradition in the wardroom are the wearing of a cover or sword by an officer not actually on watch, or conversation which touches upon politics or religion. But aboard ships which observe the custom, another implicit taboo concerns the empty chair: No matter how crowded the room, no matter who is waiting to be seated, that chair is never moved, never taken.

The table is by the main entrance to the wardroom. You will see it when you enter, and you will see it when you leave. It draws your eyes because it is meant to. And because it draws your eyes it draws your thoughts. And though it will be there every day for as long as you are at sea, you will look at it every time and your eyes will momentarily grow distant as you think for a moment. As you quietly give thanks.

AS YOU REMEMBER.

The small, round table is covered with a gold linen tablecloth. A single place setting rests there, of fine bone china. A wineglass stands upon the table, inverted, empty. On the dinner plate is a pinch of salt. On the bread plate is a slice of lemon. Besides the plate lies a bible. There is a small vase with a single red rose upon the table. Around the vase is wound a yellow ribbon. There is the empty chair.

We will remember because over the course of our careers, we will have had the opportunity to enjoy many a formal evening of dinner and dancing in the fine company of those with whom we have the honor to serve, and their lovely ladies. And as the night wears on, our faces will in time become flushed with pleasure of each other’s company, with the exertions on the dance floor, with the effects of our libations. But while the feast is still at its best, order will be called to the room – we will be asked to raise our glasses to the empty table, and we will be asked to remember:

The table is round to show our everlasting concern for those who are missing. The single setting reminds us that every one of them went to their fates alone, that every life was unique.

The tablecloth is gold symbolizing the purity of their motives when they answered the call to duty.

The single red rose, displayed in a vase, reminds us of the life of each of the missing, and their loved ones who kept the faith.

The yellow ribbon around the vase symbolizes our continued determination to remember them.

The slice of lemon reminds us of the bitterness of their fate.
The salt symbolizes the tears shed by those who loved them.
The bible represents the faith that sustained them.
The glass is inverted — they cannot share in the toast.
The chair is empty — they are not here. They are missing.

And we will remember, and we will raise our glasses to those who went before us, and who gave all that they had for us. And a part of the flush in our faces will pale as we remember that nothing worth having ever came without a cost. We will remember that many of our brothers and sisters have paid that cost in blood. We will remember that the reckoning is not over.

We many of us will settle with our families into our holiday season, our Christmas season for those who celebrate it, content in our fortune and prosperity. We will meet old friends with smiles and laughter. We will meet our members of our family with hugs. We will eat well, and exchange gifts and raise our glasses to the year passed in gratitude, and to the year to come with hope. We will sleep the sleep of the protected, secure in our homes, secure in our homeland.

But for many families, there will be an empty chair at the table this year. A place that is not filled.

WE SHOULD REMEMBER."

Many Thanks To Alfa6 For Finding Capt. Lefon's Chronicle Of "The Empty Chair."

Rest In Peace, Fallen Brother!
Welcome Home After 69 Long Years!!



1st Lt. Robert G. Fenstermacher, USAAF
506th Fighter Squadron, 404th Fighter Group
KIA Belgium, WWII, 26 December 1944

Lt. Fenstermacher was interred in the Hallowed Grounds of Arlington National Cemetery today, 18 October 2013.

I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)

"Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be." (1 Maccabees 3:58–60)

God Of Our Fathers
(Click)




Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

Composition on Beethoven’s Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 57, the Appassionata Sonata, began in 1804 but was not finished until 1806. It was to be his personal favorite among his sonatas until the monumental Hammerklavier Sonata (Opus 106) many years later. It also marked the end of the piano sonata in Beethoven’s output for three years. It is a wildly romantic work, with an opening movement that stretches the boundaries of the piano sonata, and it achieves this by using a stop-and-start mechanism. He marks it allegro assai, “very fast”, and uses a 12/8 time signature, which is quite unusual for the composer. This is also the first time Beethoven doesn’t repeat the exposition but charges off immediately into the development section.

It begins with a spooky pianissimo passage which is repeated in the Neapolitan – one half tone higher. He takes off to the races, stops cold, and repeats the opening with chords alternated between hands. This first subject is quite fragmented.
At 2:00, he turns lyrical with the second subject in A-flat, and now we have a real melody. But it’s a very short melody. He interrupts it with a scalar passage in eighth notes, and things turn wild again. He wraps up his exposition in A-flat minor, not the major as one would expect.
He abruptly changes key to E Major to begin his development. Then it’s off to the races in E minor as Lou changes key with reckless abandon. He works his way back to A-flat with a passage based on thirds. This leads to the second subject which then goes through its own key changes. This leads to a chromatic passage that ends the development.
At 5:50, he recaps by re-composing his recapitulation with an eighth note underlay in the left hand. At 7:15, he brings back the second subject in the expected key of F Major but switches it to F minor.
His long coda starts with the second subject presented in D-flat Major, but it turns dark again with a wild arpeggios that slow down before decisively returning to the tonic key of F minor for a “pedal to the metal” finish that become quieter and quieter until it evaporates into nothingness.

The second movement is a theme-and-variations movement, something that Beethoven has thus far used only rarely in his sonatas. This movement in D-flat and 2/4 time is marked andante con moto, “walking pace with motion”. It’s a hymn-like theme of great nobility and constitutes one of Beethoven’s finest conversations with God. It uses a technique called “diminution”, where the note values get smaller in each variation, thus creating the illusion of speed.
At 12:47, Variation #1 alternates the chords between hands with crossovers.
At 14:16, Variation #2 has a 16th note overlay in the right hand.
At 15:36, Variation #3 moves to a 32nd note overlay and underlay as it switches between hands, moving the theme to the opposite hand on the half-beats.
At 16:49, he restates the theme but ends it with a question mark.

He jumps without interruption into the rondo finale at 17:48, returning to F minor, keeping the 2/4 signature, but changing the direction to allegro ma non troppo, “quick, but not too quick”. If the first movement was about hot passion, this finale is about stone cold fury. The theme is at first merely hinted at, but then stated directly on the little finger of the right hand.
His middle panel turns chromatic, asking a question, which is answered by the theme. This panel is repeated.
He accelerates to a presto coda and a bravura finish.

This is a video of the late Chilean pianist Claudio Arrau, one of my favorite Beethoven pianists.

I’ll be out of circulation next week, but on the first weekend of November, I’m going to do a mixture of Halloween and All Souls’ Day, the profane and the sacred, with the sacred part on the Canteen Chapel thread. I’ll be back to Beethoven the second weekend of November.

Prolonged affliction often vexes us as well. We want a sudden solution, a quick fix. But some things can’t be fixed. They can only be borne.

Pray hard for our country.

Good evening, Mayor, and thanks for today's sustenance for body and soul.

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Good commutes today - the legs are doing better and the back is doing better as well. A Hunter's Moon this evening - we had a penumbral eclipse a while ago.



All in all a good week. I've been off the treadmill recently, but with the legs feeling better I'll get back to it tomorrow. Will take it slow - "Hit the ground strolling!"
