Congrats, CharlesW!
  • Even though I have less than 500 posts, I feel that the ever-important milestone of CharlesW having 8000 posts must be celebrated.

    Let's leave some of our best memories here.
    LOL

  • I'll go first.

    I think that it is beyond praise that Charles doesn't need the money.
    (And, if we forget, he will remind us!)

    Oh, and his descriptions of his choir members
    (if you want to call them that)
    will always make us give thanks for our own.

    His liturgical aesthesis seems to gravitate to an Anglican ethos
    and he is a friend of the Ordinariate of the Chair of St Peter.
    For that there are not sufficient accolades to heap upon him.

    He is Byzantine,
    which prevents him
    from the taint
    (and consequent worries)
    of certain excessively legalistical western proclivities.

    It was a tough job but someone had to do it.

    True. I wonder if there should be a Byzantine Anglican branch of the church?

    I think I would make an excellent overfed, stuffy, and incorrigible Anglican.

    Keeping a sense of humor makes working with choirs and church music bearable.

    That never was a big deal and still isn't. I am not rich by many standards that define wealth. Money is a tool, not an end in itself. But it is nice to not be motivated by money and to be able to make decisions independently of it. Add to that the fact that I live so simply, you would think I couldn't afford better.

    Congratulations on reaching the 8,000 post milestone, Charles. We can look forward to 9,000 and then 10,000, right?

    Now I know what Jackson's trademarked [ . ] is for: he's trying to inflate his post count to catch up to Charles!
