Monteverdi on Spotify.
Curious bright sky in the night, low clouds-- snow clouds I suppose-- down against the streetlights.
Listening to a radio interview with someone who calls himself a “Buddhist atheist,” I happened to think what a shaky position atheism is from which to discuss matters of the spirit. Insisting on atheism as a legitimate take on God is like asserting tone-deafness should have a role in the critique of music. It is a deficit and not a perspective. In other areas, insistence on the non-existence of something that others perceive and take wholly to their hearts is thought of as impoliteness, if not idiocy.
