And clever in it's annoyingness while possessing the clever ability to annoy in a manner so clever the fact of it is itself annoying?

That sentence is a bit

Ali and Frazier on the Dick Cavett Show. Two relentless warriors; two profoundly different but equally graceful personalities; two heroes that impacted society and history in ways that most people will never understand. An entire course on social studies could be devoted to this six minutes of video. Wonderful stuff!

I posted on this as well in a much more obscure fashion in Reply #481. From what I can tell a video post must be replied to and/or resulted  in some unspecified number of link redirections to youtube in order to be listed. This can also lead to a distorted view of what most people at oc.net believe or adhere to depending on the day of the week, time of day, etc. After considerable reflection I decided that those that might be dissuaded or attracted to visiting this forum was roughly equivalent.

Here you will find a brief video of our daughter's baptism, which took place one year ago today. She was baptized on St. Michael's Day, and she departed in the Lord the next afternoon. I miss my little Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael SO MUCH!

http://mysteryandmeaning.blogspot.com/2010/11/hosanna-maryam-memory-eternal.html

Jesus gazed at me through my little daughter's countenance for 11 weeks. As I held her in my arms, I held Christ Himself. And yet I still sin. I continue to indulge my passions, my ego, and my selfishness. What excuse do I have, for I have been blessed to hold a saintly infant in my arms?!

I will continue to pray to my daughter every day:


"Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael:
Pray for Mama, Papa, Noah, Zion, and Adayah"
-amen-

May her memory be eternal!

Every day we should hear at least one little song, read one good poem, see one exquisite picture, and, if possible, speak a few sensible words. -Goethe

Here you will find a brief video of our daughter's baptism, which took place one year ago today. She was baptized on St. Michael's Day, and she departed in the Lord the next afternoon. I miss my little Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael SO MUCH!

http://mysteryandmeaning.blogspot.com/2010/11/hosanna-maryam-memory-eternal.html

Jesus gazed at me through my little daughter's countenance for 11 weeks. As I held her in my arms, I held Christ Himself. And yet I still sin. I continue to indulge my passions, my ego, and my selfishness. What excuse do I have, for I have been blessed to hold a saintly infant in my arms?!

I will continue to pray to my daughter every day:


"Hosanna Maryam/Welete Mikael:
Pray for Mama, Papa, Noah, Zion, and Adayah"
-amen-

May her memory be eternal!


Selam

I'm so sorry for your loss. Memory Eternal, know that she is with the Holy Saints!
