I'm gonna fly
Defy space and gravity
I'm gonna fly
Makin' my own destiny

Well I crashed and I burned
But I don't regret it
You only fail if you don't try
Gonna brush off the ashes
And just forget it
I ain't perfect yeah
But you can bet someday
I'm gonna get my wings and fly

Second Spring

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.  
~Albert Camus~

Friday, September 28, 2012


come take me 
out of this dull world,
For I would ride 
with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of 
the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon 
the mountains like a flame.
~William Butler Yeats~

Strike Out

Driving down the wrong road and knowing it,
The fork years behind, how many have thought
To pull up on the shoulder and leave the car
Empty, strike out across the fields; and how many
Are still mazed among dock and thistle,
Seeking the road they should have taken?
~Damon Knight~

the mysteries disappear 
and life stands explained.

The Time Has Arrived

This is the time
and this is the place
and these are the signs
that we must embrace

The moment is now

This is the time to speak with one voice.
This is it.
The time has arrived.

Don't Settle

The Saag Aloo my sister and I made last night
If we're not willing to settle for junk living, 
we certainly shouldn't settle for junk food.

Stolen Moments

Stolen moments are all we have
To get us through this lifetime
All the good and bad
Someday you will be grown
With kids of your own
And you will learn to treasure everyday
Stolen moments,
 before they steal away

If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, 
I'll buy you a new car.

Point of View

Thanksgiving dinner's sad and thankless
Christmas dinner's dark and blue
When you stop and try to see it
From the turkey's point of view.

In everyone's life, at some time, our inner fire goes out.  
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.  
We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.

Big Foot

Our burg is home of many talented people.
It is also said to be home to Big Foot.
I wonder if this was carved from memory or imagination.

I was totin' my pack along the dusty Winnemucca road,
When along came a semi with a high an' canvas-covered load.
"If you're goin' to Winnemucca, Mack, with me you can ride."
And so I climbed into the cab and then I settled down inside.
He asked me if I'd seen a road with so much dust and sand.
And I said, "Listen, I've traveled every road in this here land!"

I've been everywhere, man.
I've been everywhere, man.
Crossed the desert's bare, man.
I've breathed the mountain air, man.
Of travel I've had my share, man.
I've been everywhere.
~Johnny Cash~

Spare Me

I eat everything that nature voluntarily gives: 
 fruits, vegetables, and the products of plants.
  But I ask you to spare me
 what animals are forced to surrender: 
 meat, milk, and cheese.
