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."

In 1817, at age 47, Lou Beethoven started two of his greatest works, and they gestated together for a period of almost two years. One was the Ninth Symphony. The other was the Piano Sonata in B-flat, Op. 106, the Hammerklavier Sonata. This was a 1200 bar behemoth whose slow movement is the longest in Beethoven’s output. The finale is a fugue in three voices that uses every technique Lou picked up from the study of Bach and Handel. This was to become Beethoven’s personal favorite among his sonatas.

Beethoven told his publisher that this piece would keep pianists busy for the next fifty years. Lou was underestimating. In difficulty, there is nothing like it for its era. Almost a century later, the young Arthur Rubinstein was defeated by this piece until he buckled down and spent an entire year doing nothing but mastering it.

I wrote pages and pages of commentary before I stopped and found a professional to explain the piece for you.

Here’s Daniel Barenboim from his Berlin series playing the sonata.

Good evening, Connie. Sorry I’m late. My Mom’s printer won’t print.

I’ve changed both the color and black printer cartridges and they won’t align. So many “Why” questions that I can’t answer. Having her reboot right now and maybe that will make the gremlins get back in line.

If that doesn’t work I will try unplugging the whole thing and reinstall it in the morning. “But why?” I DON’T know.

Attending To Our Words

November 30, 2013

Read: Psalm 66:10-20

Certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer. —Psalm 66:19
Bible in a Year:
Ezekiel 37-39; 2 Peter 2

A week after C. S. Lewis died in 1963, colleagues and friends gathered in the chapel of Magdalen College, Oxford, England, to pay tribute to the man whose writings had fanned the flames of faith and imagination in children and scholars alike.

During the memorial service, Lewis’ close friend Austin Farrer noted that Lewis always sent a handwritten personal reply to every letter he received from readers all over the world. “His characteristic attitude to people in general was one of consideration and respect,” Farrer said. “He paid you the compliment of attending to your words.”

In that way, Lewis mirrored God’s remarkable attention to what we say to Him in prayer. During a time of great difficulty, the writer of Psalm 66 cried out to God (vv.10-14). Later, he praised the Lord for His help, saying, “Certainly God has heard me; He has attended to the voice of my prayer” (v.19).

When we pray, the Lord hears our words and knows our hearts. Truly we can say with the psalmist, “Blessed be God, who has not turned away my prayer, nor His mercy from me!” (v.20). Our prayers become the avenue to a deeper relationship with Him. At all times, even in our hours of deepest need, He attends to our words.

My Savior hears me when I pray,
Upon His Word I calmly rest;
In His own time, in His own way,
I know He’ll give me what is best. —Hewitt
We always have God’s attention.

Problem 1...it’s connected to a Mac.

I click on the Align button and it says it is busy...wait.

I’ve run into the Default problem before on mine (PC) and DUH! I know to look now.

Her’s only has the one...I uninstalled the old one a ways back.

As far as reboot...I missed a call yesterday from a friend back east. Couldn’t figure out why. Then today at work I noticed no sound at all when I pushed buttons. Only a couple guys at work today, but one was the head of IT. I asked him if he knew what to do....no, he didn’t. His sound has been gone a week and he’s waiting for Justin on Monday. Justin has EVERY Apple device made, and is the first in line when anything new comes out. BUT I don’t want to wait til Monday. I asked my security buddy.....he poked around. Nothing. Then he rebooted and still nothing. Then he turned off and on all the buttons in settings and VOILA! Finally the sound is back.

Howdy, Conor! ((((hugs))))

We had a very nice...and quiet...Thanksgiving. Went out with friends for dinner. No leftovers except for the piece of pecan pie that I brought home with me.

Tonight, my hubby fixed steak and stuff. Yum. Good stuff!
