Posted on 07/05/2013 6:00:13 PM PDT by AZamericonnie
A couple of times in the past few years Ive experienced dehydration and, believe me, it is not something I want to repeat. It happened once after I suffered a torn hamstring while cross-country skiing, and another time in the 115-degree heat of an Israeli desert. Both times I experienced dizziness, disorientation, loss of clear vision, and a host of other symptoms. I learned the hard way that water is vital to maintaining my well-being.
My experience with dehydration gives me a new appreciation for Jesus invitation: If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink (John 7:37). His announcement was dramatic, particularly in terms of the timing. John notes that it was the last day of the great feastthe annual festival commemorating the wandering of the Jews in the wildernesswhich climaxed with a ceremonial pouring of water down the temple steps to recall Gods provision of water for the thirsty wanderers. At that point, Jesus rose and proclaimed that He is the water we all desperately need.
Living like we really need Jesustalking to Him and depending on His wisdomis vital to our spiritual well-being. So, stay connected to Jesus, for He alone can satisfy your thirsty soul!
Read: John 7:37-39

I got absolutely NOTHING done I planned on. Lots of phone calls....”my money isn’t in the bank”. Well, we sent it. Finally called that particular bank....they were having computer problems and were finally able to post deposits just before noon.
I am off for home now, via the store for my Mom. Short side trip. Be back shortly.
Well it certainly adds a certain level of intensity! LOL
Oooo...lotsa great stuff to browse through for the troops! They’re gonna love ya for it! :)
That’s not how the day was supposed to go at all!
You should have taken the whole day off & avoided the frustration! ;-}
Makes me smile every time! Our troops know how to rock the classics! :)
In 1815, Beethoven sent away to the publishing house of Salomen in London for their expensive Collected Works of George Frederick Handel. Two things happened almost immediately. Up until now Beethoven had been saying that Franz Josef Haydn was the greatest composer who had ever lived. Now with Haydn safely in his grave, Beethoven said that Handel was the greatest composer who had ever lived. The second thing that happened was that fugues started popping up like mushrooms in Beethovens work. Thanks to this greater exposure to Handels music, Beethovens interest in counterpoint was rekindled.
The Heroic Decade of Beethovens life was over, and now the composer was looking back to earlier forms of music while attempting to leap ahead into the unknown. This marked the beginning of his Late Period, the years of groundbreaking works that were often not understood until the 20th Century.
His Sonata for Cello and Piano in D, Op. 102/2 is an example of this because the fugue in the finale is one of the compositional monuments of Beethovens output. The first movement, marked allegro con brio, one of Beethovens favorite directions, starts out with an attention-getting phrase in D Major, and from the beginning it is clear that counterpoint is the major idea.
Less than a minute into the piece Beethoven settles into a placid second subject in A Major. The exposition repeats.
At 3:48 its development time, and it starts by going in tonal territory that is unmoored from the concept of key.
The recap starts in the wrong key (G Major) and then slips into the correct key after a few bars. The second subject appears in the correct post-development key of D Major.
The coda at 6:26 shifts uncomfortably through a variety of keys before Beethoven brings it to a close with a final D triad. What is most noticeable with this movement is that Beethoven is working with a short, concise form, with the intention of making his finale the main movement. This is new for the composer.
The second movement, marked adagio con molto sentimento daffetto, needs no translation. This slow movement in D minor, in ternary format, has a series of phrases broken by silences. Its a good example of how to use rests as part of your melodic line. The middle section in D Major is a wonderful respite from the gloom and darkness. Just before darkness descends again, this is a little figure on the piano that Max Steiner stole for Gone With the Wind. He sneaks carefully into D Major at the end so that he can lay down an A7 chord to lead without pause into the finale.
Ron Thomas, who will be playing this piece, once told me he hesitated to program this piece for concerts because the fugual finale is so thorny for the listeners to comprehend. Late Beethoven tends to be like that, which is why a century and Wagner had to go by before people could understand the late works. When the second violinist of the quartet that premiered all of Beethovens string quartets told him that the members of the quartet had problems understanding his latest quartets, Beethoven said, Oh, I didnt write these for you! I wrote them for a later generation! Rather than explain all the details of subjects, counter-subjects and stretti, the best way to understand the allegro fugato is to just lie back and let the sheer mathematics of the music flow over you like Bach.
Got some trout calling me from the kitchen. Seems it ain’t gonna cook itself!:)
Howdy do, Connie Lou! (((hugs)))
Hope you and your bunch had a great 4th of July! :)
Thanks for all your very hard work entertaining our troops in
such a classy way. :)
Making this stuff intelligible is a gift for me. Best use it and not hide it under a bushel.
You do a GREAT job! :)
