Foullis d’arcs en ciel pour la Ange qui annonce La Fin du Temps

Listen! To the movement “Cluster of Rainbows for the Angel Who Announces the End of Time” from Olivier Messaien’s Quartet for the End of Time.

The very, very kind neighbor lady who visited me in hospital told me that Tuesday afternoon, apparently at the same time my sorry ass was drug in to QMH, a perfectly formed rainbow appeared spanning the harbor, from Kowloon to precisely at Queen Mary Hospital. Signs and wonders? Naw. Just a phenomenon from which we take courage.

I mean, do not gild the lily. In a world where cancer is epidemic and the environment is under assault by greed-heads, the miracle is that the light and water cycle of which the Rainbow is a part hasn’t just shut down.
