When Angels get the Blues…

A time for angels or maybe blues will do…

“The Blues are the true facts of life expressed in words and song, inspiration, feeling, and understanding.”

A recent cover story of Time magazine called it a grass-roots revolution of the spirit.  The article, `The New Age of Angels,’ states: 69 per cent of Americans believe they [angels] exist. …

“I was walking among the fires of Hell, delighted with the enjoyments of Genius; which to Angels look like torment and insanity.”

William Blake

“The reflection of the world is blues, that’s where that part of the music is at. Then you got this other kind of music that’s tryin’ to come around.”

“Accounts of angelic contact contain common elements that angels are incorporeal, sexless, highly intelligent, able to move at the speed of thought, full of warmth and joy, are cooperative not competitive, and often say the same thing: Don’t be afraid.”
(Source: Wall Street Journal, USA)

“An angel has no memory.”


  “I got the blues thinking of the future, so I left off and made some marmalade. It’s amazing how it cheers one up to shred oranges and scrub the floor.”
 D.H. Lawrence

…encounters with angels seem to provide in some cases the extrication from danger, but in others they allow for the removal of the fear of that danger – a change in attitude, not circumstance.  The common thread is a profound change in the lives of those who have had an experience with angels.”
(Share International, January/February 1994)“We shall find peace. We shall hear angels, we shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.”

~Anton Chekhov


Audiences like their blues singers to be miserable.” – Janis Joplin

“…In a sectarian age, when people are being slaughtered for their differences, angels are nonsectarian well-wishers, common to Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Zoroastrianism. Bodhisattvas fulfill the same role …  in Buddhism, as avatars do in Hinduism. They are universal exemplars of grace and innocence …  a sweet antidote to the nastiness of most popular culture.”  (Share International, December 1994)

“We are not angels, we are merely sophisticated apes.”
