The news we have dreaded.. another explosion in the River Pike Mine
all we can do is send our love, our aroha,
to the mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons and daughters, wives and lovers
of the lost miners
to the people of the West Coast
the workmates, the manager and the rescue teams..
our hearts break for you
29 miners lost
"That's the music of sempiternity.
It is the cantata of creation,
the symphony of all the souls trapped in the earth......
...Shurik, put your ear to the rock .... you can hear it now can't you..."
'The industry of Souls' ... just happens to be our bookclub book this month.
