I think if human beings had genuine courage, 
they'd wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween.
 Wouldn't life be more interesting that way? 
And now that I think about it, why the heck don't they? 
Who made the rule that everybody has to dress like sheep 364 days of the year? 
Think of all the people you'd meet if they were in costume every day. P
eople would be so much easier to talk to - like talking to dogs.

Being Normal?

Being normal, whats that? 
Its a setting on a washing machine, no one wants to be that!

There is a child in every one of us 
who is still a trick-or-treater 
looking for a brightly-lit
 front porch.

October's the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down —
October is red
And golden and brown.

Almost Halloween!

Hold on, man.  
We don't go anywhere with "scary," "spooky," "haunted," or "forbidden" in the title.

Happy Birthday Susan

You know you’re getting old;
 there are certain signs.
 I walked past a cemetery,
 and two guys ran after me
 with shovels.
~Rodney Dangerfield ~

Happy Birthday !!!

I nod to a passing stranger,
and the stranger nods back, 
and two human beings go off, 
feeling a little less anonymous.

Family Unit

A family is a unit composed not only of 
children but of men, women, 
an occasional animal,
 and the common cold.

Consequence Free

Wouldn't it be great, if no one ever got offended
Wouldn't it be great to say what's really on your mind
I have always said 'all the rules are made for bending'
And if I let my hair down, would that be such a crime?

I wanna be consequence free
I wanna be where nothing needs to matter
I wanna be consequence free
just sing Na Na Na Na Na Ne Na Na Na

Live This Life

In every life, there lives a melody
In every heart, there hides a knife
Every soul shall seek its harmony
While every fist shall find a fight
And we live this life
Between wrong and right
And I feel so alive

Every dawn, a simple symphony
In every song, a broken line
In every day, a different destiny
In every love, there lives a lie
And we live this life...

And every star, with night falls back to life
And every fire will lose its light
Every tear, you ever shed will dry
While every smile
Will burn on

And we live this life
Between wrong and right
And I feel
So alive

Successive Autumns

Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love — that makes life and nature harmonize. The birds are consulting about their migrations, the trees are putting on the hectic or the pallid hues of decay, and begin to strew the ground, that one's very footsteps may not disturb the repose of earth and air, while they give us a scent that is a pefect anodyne to the restless spirit. Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. 
~George Eliot~

Learn and Enjoy

Apprentice yourself to nature.  
 Not a day will pass without her 
opening a new and 
wondrous world of experience
 to learn from and enjoy.

Be Someone

Be someone who fights for what they believe in
Be someone who does what is right
Be someone that your children would be proud to be like you
Be someone who cares

Be Healthy

Life is like a tree
 and its root is consciousness.
 Therefore, once we tend the root, 
 the tree as a whole will be healthy.

What It's All About

the local schools and
most of have he had a great time.
Good Job Sean!!!

Odds Are

The odds are that we will probably be alright
Sure things go wrong, but I’ll take my chances
Odds are long, so why not play?
It’s a twenty-three four-to-one
That you can fall in love by the end of this song
So get up, get up
No I’m never gonna let up
So you might as well sing along
The odds are that we will probably be alright
Odds are we're gonna be alright, 
odds are we're gonna be alright tonight
~Barenaked Ladies~

Thank You

With arms outstretched I thank.
 With heart beating gratefully I love.
 With body in health I jump for joy. 
With spirit full I live. 
~Terri Guillemets~
Thank You
to everyone who 
has helped  me,
listened to me rant, 
watched me freak out,
and be the fierce Mama Lion I am.
Thank You
Thank You
Thank You

Braved The Storm Of Life

So we shall let the reader answer this question for himself: 
Who is the happier man, he who has braved the storm of life and lived, 
or he who has stayed securely on shore and merely existed?
~Hunter S. Thompson~

Our lives aren't easy baby, but we're never going to merely exist!
