... return

The office has not collapsed in my absence. I have so many writeups to make. Haven't seen last night's Heroes yet (or last week's CSI even). Have skimmed the flist though not commented yet. Am grateful to see that sigrun is back.

Shift in tone: v. glad I have TBQ on my flist. Learned from her that Olwen (tenebraeli) committed suicide. I don't know how long Olwen and I were mutually friended, but it's been quite a while. There are a lot of times I half-expected this, but she seemed to be doing fairly well recently, so I was rocked to see TBQ's post. We've never been very close (so it's not something I'm going to mention it to work people, for example, since that gets so complicated with explaining LJ and all) but still.

This morning, one of the songs I had in my head was "Blessed Be Your Name" (thanks to this weekend). Which now feels both ironic and appropriate (Kaddish is a prayer of praise to God, for example).
Blessed Be Your Name
by Matt Redman

Blessed Be Your Name
In the land that is plentiful
Where Your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be Your name

Blessed Be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

Every blessing You pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in, Lord
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

You give and take away
You give and take away
My heart will choose to say
Lord, blessed be Your name
