We'll be cruising far beyond Jamaica, Trinidad and Cuba to explore such other exciting rhythms as goombay, punta, boom and chime, and fungi music, among others. No, I'm not making this stuff up. Listening to this awesomely life-affirming music makes me wonder why it's all so unknown.
There's a million reggae shows out there - why is the music of other islands ignored? It takes a blog like this one dedicated to the hopelessly obscure to cover 'em. The all too short-lived spouge music of Barbados is a great example of how to put a unique spin on Afro-Carib rhythms. Worst of all was that she could see that her purpose in Lucifer's life had been clear from the start.
She'd helped him to a point of self-realization that had resulted in growth and healing for him, and as a result, she'd lost him. That was some reward. Chloe felt like nothing more than a tool and a means to an end. To be honest, they were both tools—pawns that had been deployed for the safety and protection of a world that didn't even appreciate the sacrifice. Feeling disheartened, Chloe turned away from the lush plantings, prepared to leave. And that was when something caught her eye.
It was a mere flicker, but it was enough to give her pause. Across the garden beneath a white-latticed arbor, a faint ripple disturbed the air. It reminded Chloe of the disruption caused by a fly landing on still waters.
Approaching the arbor, she slowed her pace and surveyed the area with as much caution as her curiosity would allow. The space around the arbor seemed perfectly normal. Beneath the archway, however, the air quivered like a platter of gelatin. Sliding her hand toward the disturbance, Chloe watched as her fingertips disappeared. Instantly, she recoiled, retrieving her hand from the space and inspecting it for any damage. Breathing heavily, she observed with immense amounts of relief, that all five fingers were still intact.
Two more attempts rendered the same results. She didn't know what to make of it. Looking around her, Chloe noted that she was alone. No one had seen her.
That was probably a good thing, she concluded. But what should she do? She needed to talk to someone who might know what this was. A year ago, Chloe would have been in a state of heavy confusion and possible disbelief. Her mind would have begun to rationalize what she had seen. More than likely, she would have looked to science for an explanation. Now, however, it didn't even occur to her to consider the possibility that the ripple was anything other than celestial in nature.
Several rings later, and she was listening to his voicemail message. Chloe knocked on the door to Linda's office, waited for half a second and then knocked again.
Just as she was raising her hand to knock a third time, the door swung open and Linda was staring back at her with a quizzical expression on her face. What's wrong? It was always there, and as much as it was intended as a show of support, Chloe couldn't help but feel like a wounded bird every time she heard it. And Linda wasn't the only one who used "the tone. At the moment, I'm free as a bird.
How are things going? I just really need Amenadiel. Linda was a new Mom to a half-angel baby. She was holding down a full-time job, and although she would never admit it, Chloe knew she lived in a state of perpetual exhaustion. Because Linda worried. A LOT. She worried that someone might come down from the Silver City and take away Charlie. She worried about another demon uprising. She worried that her son would develop wings before he was ready and somehow expose himself to the world.
Consequently, Chloe knew that many nights Linda stayed awake just watching Charlie in the nursery. Linda's worries were nothing that a new mother should have to endure, and the last thing Chloe wanted to do was tell her about a mystery hole in some garden in L.
Chloe tossed aside one of the pillows on the couch and sat down. I know you're holding something back. Why is it so important to find Amenadiel? Turning to look at the bassinet in the corner, she made her concerns very clear.
Linda was worried that Chloe's secret might have something to do with Charlie. If she told Linda, she risked alarming her, and if she didn't tell her, she'd also risk alarming her.
In was a no-win situation, so Chloe decided it was best to just come clean. I found something, okay? Something that probably doesn't belong here. It's got to be celestial, and I need Amenadiel to explain it to me. Chloe shrugged. If I had to guess, I'd say that it's some sort of hole—a disturbance in the air. It looked like a ripple, and when I touched it, my hand completely disappeared.
We do need Amenadiel. He went to see Lucifer," Linda blurted out, throwing out her arms in helpless resignation. I could've sent Lucifer a message," Chloe said, her temper flaring as she considered the missed opportunity. She could've sent a message that he might actually receive. He hadn't been down there since that one time right after Lucifer left. He's been too worried about Charlie and me. He just kept saying he didn't want to leave us.
I even accused him of hovering. So when he finally announced his decision to go, I didn't question it too much because we'd been having an ongoing dialog about it for months. Is Lucifer really okay? Because if he weren't, I would absolutely want to know. If something else prompted the visit, Amenadiel didn't mention it to me. Amenadiel disappears on a whim, saying he's going to visit Lucifer.
And at the same time, I stumble upon some sort of celestial hole. We'll just have to wait. In the meantime, why don't you really tell me how you've been doing?
It was a conversation she didn't want to have again , but Linda could be annoyingly tenacious when it came to ferreting out information. Hoping to put a firm period on the discussion, she added, "No better, no worse. Everything is just very. Chloe frowned. So far, that hasn't happened. It's not like I've been able to check in with him.
Right now, I'm here for you. And as to your question regarding his happiness, with Lucifer, I don't think it's so much of a question of his happiness. As long as he feels like you and the people he cares about are protected, I would guess that he's probably. And it's also important to realize that the reason he was able to make that sacrifice in the first place is because he had you in his life, Chloe.
It's like I'm in a holding pattern waiting for him to come back—except that I know he's not," Chloe said, fully committing to a confessional as she spread herself out along the length of the couch.
But most of all I feel angry. I'm so mad that we finally got to where we needed to be, and we didn't even get a chance to actually be together. I'm saying this as your friend. I get it, and it's crap. I just can't. Linda pursed her lips, seemingly formulating her next piece of advice. All you really need to do is reach a place of acceptance that allows you to lead a healthy, productive life.
Think about how you can explore healthy avenues for experiencing life without constantly dwelling on your feelings for Lucifer and how much you miss him. Your feelings for Lucifer can still exist alongside the regular business of life. You just need to give yourself permission to have those new experiences without feeling the guilt that comes along with them. And in the back of my mind, I'm constantly wondering if he's really gone for good or if he might actually be able to come back one day.
I know he can't leave, but if I could just go there or—". He most certainly had, Chloe thought, feeling the bitterness rise inside of her. She hadn't wanted to ask Amenadiel for help, and at first, she hadn't needed to ask him. But then, things had changed. Surprisingly, the first few months after Lucifer's departure had been the easiest for Chloe. Her resolve had been rock hard, and her memories of the two of them together had still been fresh. Like any good martyr, she'd been determined to accept her lot with a stoic sense of duty.
With time, however, her resolve had weakened and the memories had become bittersweet. Mark Topic: Crucifixion We read Jesus did not want anyone to know He was passing through Galilee, because He wanted to teach something to His disciples. It was regarding the death of the cross. This is because there is a principle of Bible study which helps us understand things called the principle of first mention.
Psalms Topic: Crucifixion We must by experience know the value of blood shedding, and see the sword awakened against the Shepherd, before we shall be able truly to know the Sweetness of the good Shepherd's care. Matthew Topic: Crucifixion The Sinners of that day, who platted a crown of thorns on His head and crucified the Lord, did not realize what they did that day with Christ, but they actually were used of God to symbolize a great truth.
Leviticus Topic: Crucifixion The Cross is placed on the ground and the grisly task of nailing hands and feet begin. The pound of the hammer on a rusty spike sounds like thunder. The rusty nails pierce the calloused hands. The hammer pounds on and on and Jesus writhes in the last hours of His agony. If you are married, you must work together.
