Re: Little joys in life

A recent operation in my lower back means I can't sit down, but that feeling when it's been a long, hot day, and you kick off your boots and flop face-down on the couch is beyond nirvana.

Re: What position do you sleep in?

I sleep around 7/8ths prone, with my head turned to the left. My right arm is hooked under my pillow, and my left arm snakes forward on the bed, to the bedhead. My pillow is about 1/4 of the way down the bed. This is unusual, I typically sleep on my back. But I recently had surgery in my lower back,...

Re: What do you think the role of music is in religion?

Music in worship is certainly about keeping things interesting, I reckon. In a standard Catholic mass, the ceremony is set into a certain structure, each part of the structure with it's own words. The different parts are the Kyrie, the Gloria, the Credo (or Creed, sometimes left out), the Sanctus, t...
