    1. Why not? We do it every day of our lives. That dichotomy is the very definition of life, is it not? We slip and slide between the angelic and the demonic with such ease and speed few of us are aware we're doing it.

      Since Virtue is regarded as "high" and Evil as "low," is it any wonder we gravitate –– quite literally –– towards the Bottom, while finding Ascendancy a constant challenge?

    1. Comments must address the TOPIC –– in this case Christmas Music and those compose and who perform it.

      Irrelevant remarks will be deleted on contact.

      MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  4. That arrangement of the Twelve Days of Christmas reminded me a bit of the kind of things Anna Russell used to do, FT. It was very amusing up to a point, but don't you think it went on a bit too long?

    Merry Christmas to you, FT!
