New Projects

Apart from a hearing I had in the morning, the main focus yesterday was, of course the weather.

I had an inkling that the weather would become worse really early in the morning. At around 5:00 a.m., there was a gust of wind, then followed by pouring rain. It eased up a bit an hour later, when we left for Bea's school. But then, it picked up again as I returned home.

My hearing went well and finished just in time for me to pick up Nico from his school. But by that time, further classes were already suspended.

I even had time to watch another reason why our Philippine sports officials should just hide out and seek illegal employment in Beijing. But I knew the results early because the official Olympic website offered advanced and live results.

Anyway, I reported to the office and we discussed our next project: our big move to our new office. If it all plays out, we will have an office we can be proud of.

And speaking of projects, our chamber group will embark on a new, ambitious project. We're gunning for "Air on a G string" by Bach. People are familiar with how this goes. I scrounged around in YouTube and there a lot of examples, but this is one of the most faithful, because the violinist actually plays the piece on only the violin's G string, if you will notice. Kyung-Wha Chung plays violin with Itamar Golan as an encore to the concert celebrating the 30th anniversary of her own international debut in 1997:

I don't know if one of our violinist will undertake to play the piece like this, but there's one thing I know: we don't have a cellist yet to pull this off...

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
