Heaven is in the Humble

Soundtrack: Mercedes Bahleda’s Domine Fil Unigenite. I hear–and feel–Heaven every time this plays. (Thanks, Erich Schiffmann, for introducing me to her music.) When I recommended it today to a fellow “lover of the gloaming” blogger, I just about did a cartoon slapping of my hand to my forehead: Now, this is the perfect accompaniment to The Bay Lights.

When the lights came on to Domine this evening I saw Heaven in their shimmer. They flicker like candle glow. Bahleda makes The Lights a Heaven. And on such a pedestrian (I know, I know) thing as a bridge for cars…for Heaven’s sake.
