We will be starting another book reading and discussion. The book is entitled: On Tyranny by Timothy Snyder. It is available at our NC library, online ordering and a free pdf version is available at: https://www.pdfdrive.com/on-tyranny-twenty-lessons-from-the-twentieth-century-e184197413.html. We envision it will take a week for us to get the book and a week to read enough of the book to start discussion, so we hope to have our first discussion around March 20th. If you want to participate in this read/discuss, please let us know and also your thoughts about the timing, scheduling and what our topics should be included in the first discussion.

Suggested Listening: A piano concerto's piano concerto Rachmaninoff has the piano accompanying the orchestra more than the orchestra accompanies the piano! All of the melodic themes are introduced by the orchestral instruments.
Last week's Tarantella by Athanasius Kircher had quite an interpretation. This is more like Kircher would have conceived of it.
Funny joke for the day: At an interdenominational event a UU minister asked a young lady, “What do you think of my faith.” She said it was ugly. You see the minister had a pronounced lisp.
