Meditation on being far from home (Keith Teare)
The Emigrant's Lament, An authentic 19th century song which has never been published and only survives thanks to three generations of Manx people. This version of the song is entirely true to the bleak version sung around the campfires of the Colorado mines in the 1890s.It was completed beyond the first verse thanks to Mary Ward Utterback of Illinois, whose family papers provided the source of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th verses. It is performed here by Keith Teare, whose grandfather, Willie Teare, brought the song to the Isle of Man in 1893 when he returned from his time working in the mines in Colorado.More about the music and culture of the Isle of Man can be found on the following websites:https://www.culturevannin.im/https://www.manxmusic.com/index.shtmlSource: https://youtu.be/Y4hao19KapM Published under Creative Commons.

The most famous of these programs was the Free Breakfast for Children program which fed thousands of impoverished children daily during the early 1970s. Newton also co-founded the Black Panther newspaper service which became one of America's most widely distributed African-American newspapers.

Meditation on a dead cowboy (Harry McClintock)
The Cowboy's Lament (or Streets of Laredo)By Francis Henry Maynard, 1876Sung by Harry McClintock, 1926.Published under Creative CommonsAs I walked out in the streets of LaredoAs I walked out in Laredo one dayI spied a poor cowboy wrapped up in white linenWrapped up in white linen and cold as the clay"O beat the drum slowly and play the fife lowly;Play the Dead March as you carry me alongTake me to the green valley and lay the sod o're meFor I'm a young cowboy and I know I done wrong.""I see by your outfit that your are a cowboy."These words he did say as I boldly stepped by"Come sit down beside me and hear my sad story;I'm shot in the breast and I know I must die.""Let sixteen gamblers come handle my coffin;Let sixteen cowboys sing me a songTake me to the graveyard and lay the sod o're meFor I'm a young cowboy and I know I done wrong."“Go write a letter to my grey-haired mother,And carry the same to my sister so dear,But not a word of this shall you mentionWhen a crowd gathers round you my story to hear.”“Then beat your drum slowly and play your fife lowly,Beat the Dead March as you carry me along,We all love our cowboys so young and so handsome,We all love our cowboys although they’ve done wrong.”“Go gather around you a crowd of young cowboys,And tell them the story of this, my sad fate;Tell one and the other before they go furtherTo stop their wild roving before ’tis too late.”“It was once in the saddle I used to go dashingOnce in the saddle I used to go gay,First down to the dram-house and then to the card houseGot shot in the breast, I am dying today.”“Get six jolly cowboys to carry my coffin,Get six pretty maidens to carry my pall,Put bunches of roses all over my coffin,Put roses to deaden the clods as they fall.”“Go bring me a cup, a cup of cold waterTo cool my parched lips,” the cowboy said;Before I turned, the spirit had left himAnd gone to its Giver — the cowboy was dead.

Meditation on things not working out (Jack Nicholson)
Jack Nicholson as Robert "Bobby" Eroica Dupea in Five Easy Pieces (1970)"Are you cold? I don't know if you'd be.. particularly interested in hearing anything about me. My life, I mean... most of it doesn't add up to much that I could relate as a way of life that you'd approve of. I move around a lot. Not because I'm looking for anything really, but, because... I'm getting away from things that get bad... when I stay. Auspicious beginnings, you know what I mean? I'm trying to imagine your half of this conversation. My feeling is I don't know that if you could talk we wouldn't be talking. That's pretty much how it got to be before I left. Are you all right? I don't know what to say... Tita suggested that we try to... I don't know. I think that she... feels that we've got some understanding to reach. She totally denies the fact that we were never that comfortable with one another to begin with. The best that I can do is apologise. We both know that I was never really that good at it anyway. I'm sorry it didn't work out.Miriam Peirone sings Namarie (Galadriel's Lament) from Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings"Source: https://youtu.be/E6XnzglBjxcAi! laurië lantar lassi súrinen,yéni unótimë ve rámar aldaron!Yéni ve lintë yuldar avániermi oromardi lisse-miruvórevaAndúnë pella, Vardo tellumarnu luini yassen tintilar i eleniómaryo airetári-lírinen.Sí man i yulma nin enquantuva?An sí Tintallë Varda Oiolossëove fanyar máryat Elentári ortanë,ar ilyë tier undulávë lumbulë;ar sindanóriello caita morniëi falmalinnar imbë met, ar hísiëuntúpa Calaciryo míri oialë.Sí vanwa ná, Rómello vanwa, Valimar!Namárië!

Meditation on hatred as care (Eric Dodson)
From Martin Heidegger, Lecture 2: Care... and the Riddle of Authentic ExistenceSource: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8oULtomILAMartin Heidegger (1889 – 1976) was a German philosopher who is widely regarded as one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. He is best known for contributions to phenomenology, hermeneutics, and existentialism.In Being and Time (1927), Heidegger addresses the question of the meaning of "being", which "is concerned with what it is that makes beings intelligible as beings". Heidegger approaches this question through an analysis of Dasein, his term for the specific type of being that humans possess. The reason for this approach is that we already have a pre-ontological understanding of being that shapes how we experience the world. This conception of the human is in contrast with that of Rationalist thinkers like René Descartes, who had understood human existence most basically as thinking, as in Cogito ergo sum ("I think therefore I am").Heidegger was a member and supporter of the Nazi Party. There is controversy as to the relationship between his philosophy and his Nazism.
