Every once in a while you let me catch a glimpse of your heart.

At times I need to see it most. Just a coincidence, a fortunate coincidence. serendipitous.

So far of any song by Natalie Merchant i have heard and I have heard only a few. it is this song that hits home with me the most.
<center>
"Motherland"

Where in hell can you go
Far from the things that you know
Far from the sprawl of concrete
That keeps crawling its way
About 1,000 miles a day?

Take one last look behind
Commit this to memory and mind
Don't miss this wasteland, this terrible place
When you leave
Keep your heart off your sleeve

Motherland cradle me
Close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe
Lie with me
Stay beside me
Don't go, don't you go

O, my five & dime queen
Tell me what have you seen?
The lust and the avarice
The bottomless, the cavernous greed
Is that what you see?

Motherland cradle me
Close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe
Lie with me
Stay beside me
Don't go

It's your happiness I want most of all
And for that I'd do anything at all, o mercy me!
If you want the best of it or the most of all
If there's anything I can do at all

Now come on shot gun bride
What makes me envy your life?
Faceless, nameless, innocent, blameless and free,
What's that like to be?

Motherland cradle me
Close my eyes
Lullaby me to sleep
Keep me safe
Lie with me
Stay beside me
Don't go, don't you go </center>

This a strange year for me — my seventieth. √i have lived twenty three years longer than Kerouac and I still don't know what for.

Going to dream about Crazy Mike tonight,

I checked the links out all of them, I only watched a few minutes of the movie. Whitebird trips me out everytime I hear it, good times bad times Takoma Park Maryland in the nineteen seventies.

Natalie Merchant grabbed hold of my ears and would not let me be.

Well I got to go to bed, I got to work tomorrow. What a grind. I got half hour scheduled from 10 to ten thirty at The Rosewater Foundation. I hope I don't wimp out. I need the dough.

Going to listen to this song one more time to put me in the mood to dream about my father.

I'm like a child with a secret, sometimes it's just too much to contain and I go pulling it from my pockets to show but then a few minutes later I'm hiding it away again; a peek-see of the little red bird chirping away, I'd found unexpectedly, but I protect it something fierce.

I'm often the most careful and cautious with as tender and gentle as it is; I don't want to subject it to much harassment or social situations. Other times I'm quite sorely annoyed with it, for it shows too much of my sensitive nature and I don't always want it known that if I mean to be thick and callous or brash and abrasive (my sons favorite saying) then it surely gets in the way, for it'll be looked on possibly, could ruin a setting of primitive beast! Ha!
That's all it is, really.

Primitive~I want them to get the impression I'd eat a little sweet thing like that, and I would eat it, except I grew to like this one in the pocket.

This one too I wanted here...

Bogie and Bacall


Thanks for those Jack, and that's what I fell asleep on, very good stuff.

The Kingdom of Women
the last matriarchal group left in Red China

Maternal Uncles held in place of high honor.

So like i was saying twenty three years after Kerouac died I live on for no particular reason I could tell you

Just to live
and enjoy the sunshine
and cool morning breeze
and think about Camus
and a rock and roll Sisyphus

Get past my father's hell
still thinking about him ever night for three nights
no dreams I can remember
but not troubled on awakening
refreshed
so I guess everything is okay
as I try to free him from haunting grave yards that are too far away

love that Joni song when she was still Joni Anderson.
Working on this profile for tarbaby

I'm here, I'm all good too mingo and thank you.

Came home and went to sleep yesterday, then back up for a short time. Lots to soak up, I gots to absorb and piece it all together. Jack's keeping me busy and life's not dull, at least when reading. I've a lot of notes, just haven't sorted it out much.
A picture soon, but it's still only in the head.

I'm reading, Jack~"Gotta makje a website..." and I'm thinking, me~"it's all right here..." or sumpin' like that.

Also thought I saw Adam and Eve behind the prison wall. Now, that's something to look more at, too.

Glad to hear you're ok. I just get anxious sometimes. Yeah I read Jack said something about tryin' to get a website up. I'm gonna wait and see what he's got in mind.

My paranoia sky high thinking he's got a trick to play me yet.
If Jack does a website he can have me there if he'll keep talking cause otherwise I don't do much chatting, I guess, though to a handful. I'm extremely anti-social and I've serious stage fright, he makes me forget anybody's watching.

mingo, my guy neighbor has a jeep, a friendly dog and he reminds me of you. I don't know him, other than a tad small talk when I go by walking every day, but it is good stuff, you might be my neighbor.

I think I'm my neighbor too.

Sometimes I feel like a fire. Sometimes I feel like a swamp with bullfrogs in my eyes and turtles swimming through.
Then there are the times I look at the sky and agree the Bible as truly the Word of God.

Between Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday I'd rather be the latter.

Bugs Bunny is my favorite practitioner of Zen.

I love my Jeep.

Yesterday I looked for you but you weren't on the porch, though I did notice you have two jeeps now. You're a cool neighbor to have even with bullfrogs.

A Drew one I'd not seen yet.
