~Better Now~
~Collective Soul~


Oh I'm newly calibrated
All shiny and clean
I'm your recent adaptation
Time to redefine me

Let the word out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now
Break the news out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now

Oh I'm happy as Christmas
All wrapped to be seen
I'm your recent acquisition
Time to celebrate me

Let the word out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now
Break the news out I've got to get out
Oh I'm feeling better now

The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking me down

The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking
The world's done shaking me down

~Celestial ~
some Zen for ya all! :)

If
You
Had
Known
How we
Would
Have
Grown
Had you
Still wandered
All those years alone
And left me here on my own
For when i looked into your eyes
It was so apparent that we were home
And together as bright as celestial skies
Yet you took a travelers path to find
Silence which remained behind
Was nothing other than
This love which
Is divine

WHAT?

He speaks ...German
like a word unspoken
Everyone is yearnin
to hear him
I heard him
his words softly
spoken like a fire
from inside
left me speechless
untied and I listened
again and again
that voice
so matched the man
It buried me in thought
took me a few days
Now I am coated in
some kind of candy glaze
if that is possible
for a 51 year old woman
It is cuz I did and am
well I am his best plan
probably his best fan
Cuz he chills me
like a cold wind
then brings me
home again!
Candy coated
warm and free!
He needs me! :)

~THE ROAD NOT TAKEN~

~ Robert Frost~

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. ~


God ...I love that Poem~ always ~ forever~ :)

~THE LOCKLESS DOOR~

~ Robert Frost (1874-1963)~

Twent many years,
But at last came a knock,
And I thought of the door
With no lock to lock.

I blew out the light,
I tip-toed the floor,
And raised both hands
In prayer to the door.

But the knock came again
My window was wide;
I climbed on the sill
And descended outside.

Back over the sill
I bade a “Come in”
To whoever the knock
At the door may have been.

So at a knock
I emptied my cage
To hide in the world
And alter with age.


:) so true~!

Stevie Ray Vaughan: I might have a glimmer of an idea of what people like Albert King or B.B. King or, or, other people like that think when somebody like myself comes along and can't get their music out of his mind. And starts copying them. I'm just getting a very small glimpse of what BB King must think. Because who doesn't play B.B. King stuff in their music? Or try? Who doesn't play Albert King things in their music? Who doesn't play Jimi Hendrix stuff in their music, you know? You know, there's very few people who don't.



SRV: There was actually two nights that we were at Montreaux. The first we played on the big stage. We got a mixed reaction. The place is actually built for acoustic jazz and here we come in there with, with Fender amps and everything, and I ended up having 'em covered up with blankets and everything. But it was still loud for their comparison. Um, but we had had several people in the audience, come to find out they were all sitting right together right in the front, um, that were booing us, but in that room it sounded like a lot more people booing, you know? Especially when you're nervous, you know? (laughs)
But David Bowie had seen us that night as well. Several other people had come back and given us a lot of encouragement and they had seen the mixed reaction as a good thing. David Bowie had, he was thinking about putting together some sort of a... some sort of a TV show kinda deal. And uh, that didn't come about, but that was where he got the idea for me to play guitar on his album.
LB: That was David's Let's Dance LP. The hoopla from Stevie's sessions with David Bowie no doubt helped expose Double Trouble's own Texas Flood, and their follow-up, Couldn't Stand the Weather.


SRV: The next night, Jackson Brown played, in the big room, and we played in the musician's bar underneath the casino. And Jackson Brown's whole band came to see US afterwards, and we played all night long. I mean literally, from after his show until the morning. And ended up during the course of the night, we played a lot of the night with Jackson Browns' band we ended up with the whole band, all of us, both bands at the same time, and, uh, that was where Jackson offered us his studio.
["Cold Shot" plays.]
LB: One of Stevie Ray Vaughan's greatest hits, "Cold Shot". Clearly, Jimi Hendrix played a significant role in Stevie's musical growth. This is how Stevie first heard him.




SRV: My brother found a demo 45, you know, demonstration copy, in a trash bin at a TV show that they were doin' in Dallas. A musi.... a rock TV show. And uh, he brought it home, and put it on the stereo, and we both creamed our jeans (laughs) and I've never been the same since. (laughs) I just thought he was the greatest thing I'd ever seen, you know, (laughs). I never got to see him live, but, there's a whole lot about his life I was influenced by. His music, his style, um, his attitude, uh, what he was looking for, or at least in my interpretation what he was looking for, which was growing from the inside out.
["Voodoo Child" plays. ]
LB: A masterful cover, "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" once heard on Stevie Ray Vaughan Couldn't Stand the Weather, and now


SRV: Every time I hear B.B. King, Live at the Regal, I remember being' in my room, and I had, I had, I had one of those little airline stereos where they have the satellite speakers? Which is really a cardboard box with a wire attached to it? And I'd mike that up, somehow I ended up with a Shure PA system in my bedroom. It was for gigs, but... and I didn't have any amps, so I'd go rent these amps the day of the gig and keep 'em for a couple of days and then take 'em back.
But I would, I would hook everything up where I'd be miking everything through this PA and then playing my guitar with it. And every time I hear that record, I remember being in my room and all that was going on there and playing along with it and tryin' to learn it but at the same time trying to imagine what this gig was like, where they were, you know. And it was just a real fresh growth period in my life you know. It was a real neat deal, cause I didn't know how to just go in my room and just play. Of course, I'd try to dress up and everything, you know and fit the part. (laughs)
["Look at Little Sister" plays. ]


Thats how it goes............Livin Life by the Drop! :)

!~It's The Only One You've Got~!

3 DOORS Down!

How do you know where you're going
When you don't know where you've been
You hide the shame that you're not showing
And you won't let anyone in
A crowded street can be a quiet place
When you're walking alone
And now you think that you're the only
One who doesn't

Have to try
And you won't have to feel
If you're afraid to fight
Then i guess you never will
You hide behind your walls
Of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

Memories have left you broken
And the scars have never healed
The emptiness in you is growing
But so little left to fill
You're scared to look back on the days before
You're too tired to move on
And now you think that you're the only one who doesn't

Have to try
And you won't have to feel
If you're afraid to fight
Then i guess you never will
You hide behind your walls
Of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

What would it take
To get you to say that i'll try
And what would you say if
This was the last day of your life

You hide behind your walls
Of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

You hide behind your walls
Of maybe nevers
Forgetting that there's something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you're not
You've got to live this life you're given
Like it's the only one you've got

Old dusty cupboards
things in the attic
Thats what I want
somethin no one
can see yet!
All of theses years
hidden from sight
something I wanted
Something kinda right~!
In that back dark
cobwebby basement
somebodies heart
not willing to fake it!
sounds like a good start!

~Maybe it is better to let some things go...........
I was always so in love
It was always hard to know...
when to let go , when to stand strong
when to forget , when forever was wrong
In my make believe world that is all coloured blue
I always thought forever meant jus me an yu!

~If I was right
to fight for you
when everyone said
Not to, then I am good!
If everything I have done
was in vain, though not a shame
I did for my own selfish reasons
Cuzz luv has no season
and I felt it so strong
how could it be wrong?


Amen , a prayer for little ole dog, he is fighting pneumonia and may not make it, did all I can do now. It is not mine to decide.

~Hiding~

Take a look at me
somethin you aint seen
Like a strong wing
lost its strength last wind
She cried all nite
things she can't make right
and she arose with a smile
for awhile...
I dont reckon , I am blessed
from heaven, I just think I am
fine just the way ...I am!
So take a look at me...
I'm not hard to see
I'm real but I am broken
All my love it seems , bursting at the seams
and I DONT know how to make it right
Yet in the Sunlight ...it shines
just the way it is
Without cause or fear
cuzz I know when I rise
it will hide the lies and the hurt
Is'nt that what life is worth
Just to live like you know
we have so very far to go!
So I do carry on...
No fear for being wrong!~

Wrapped inside this cloth , I call home
Have sheltered myself way too long
My heart wishes for dreams
While my soul holds me still
I have so many empty void spaces
While my body ages , my music carries me home
Here I sit All Alone!
By chance some true heart floats by
I will be here waiting, ready to Fly!
Hard to fly with one broken wing
May he find me soon, help my heart to mend
Then may we both begin to sing~Again!

~Mothers Day~

I missed you again
more that day than most of
the other 364 days, i miss you!
I spent the day with your Grandson
He misses you so much!
I comforted him
just like you always did me
He lost his job and I could
see the worry in his face.
He didnt want to tell me.
I remembered all the stupid things
and mistakes I had made in my days
And how always in a positive way,
you comforted me too.
We both missed you Mom!
We talked about life , listened to
some songs!
I cried after he left simply because
I can no longer shelter him
from the pain of real life.
But I did what you would have done
I opened my heart and showed him
My Sun, and he hugged me alittle harder
yesterday, and I loved him more than ever!
A MOTHERS DAY to treasure~

~Catch The Rainbow (On Stage live) ~

When evening falls
She'll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can't see, ooh

Soft and warm
She'll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the lace, ooh

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

We believed we'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind to the sun
Sail away on ships of wonder

But life's not a wheel
With chains made of steel
So bless me, oh bless me yeah, bless me

Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn
Come the dawn

Ooh, ooh..
Mmm, mmm
Ooh, ooh
A light is all that see
Off to you and me
Ooh, ooh

Ride the night
See the light
Ooh
Take him to the sky, yeah

Ooh, oooh
Oo-oo-ooh, ooh

Through the door
Ride the sky
Make it shine
For you and I
See the light
Through the night
Make it shine
To the night

Catch the rainbow, see the light

Catch the rainbow
And ride the sky
Make it shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine!
Shine! Shine, for you and I


ahhhhhhhhh the Good Ole Days!

Just another substantial memory of
Obamas war against fuellords!
I am disgusted with this country!
Disgusted with the Lords,

We have given idiots substantial govern over Oil!
No one has been monitoring them,

He was too busy claiming black fame and Muslin luv~!
Now we are all left with his nasty slimy muslin glove!
I am truley disgusted with his plan so far~
I hope this white world comes to its senses ...

His American seeds , are so faint~
Yes, we were stupid, we had little to hold onto~
But by god, my country is AMERICAN!

~I really am not that predjudice, actually I used to be much better! i guess that life and circumstances have made me hard! 9/11 happend and suddenly I feel like the White card in a deck that never wins~just my spin on it!

June 13th~

Another year
so many have passed.
No where to go
I spread your ashes
just where you wanted me to
Down the Big Darby Creek
so many years ago!
Your fishing place
I as a little girl went there
with you so many times
I remember when I hooked
you in the nose, while you
were teachin me to cast...
If I could Dad , I would go there
today with my son
He is too busy and really
wouldnt understand.
So for now I will just say
"Happy Birthday Dad! xo

When we stand behind the ideas of our forefathers
The idea of freedom, redemption and legacy
Why did we listen to a man that used to do blow
Or elect a man who doesn't know wtf he's doing
When we learnt to points guns
While they drifted thier hands to their gods the suns
and as we finally accepted thier way of life
We sometimes married took on a husband or wife
Each day rotting between the battlefield of the gods
Are we merely just forgiving souls
We'd rather hurt ourselves than others
What if the land devided and the civil war started up over love
Helen of Newyork and Paris of Louisiana
Would we not fight a loosing battle
Just for someone else to be free?
And as each day follows behind a trail of birds picking up crumbs
We meagerly forget for awhile to give food upon the slums
We created in the midst of our hate
Our love of blood
Brother to brother
Tonight I lay down my life for you

~Time~


Amazing thing before my eyes
Her old hard shell , it came alive!
Hiding in the basement , gloomy.
Yet life within her shined this morning!

A sweet kind man with tender eyes
his hands they worked her ever kind!
He worked for over a good two hours
I watched intent , while he sipped coffee!

Amazing man, my new good friend
He made her work, he made her chime!
He helped me bring her up the stairs
he helped me place her gently there.

When all her chimes began to ring
We both stood back , my how she gleamed!
A tear or two fell from my eyes.
That sweet sweet man, his eyes they smiled~!

I apologized for all my emotion
Though truely I know it was his own passion
He wanted nothing more than to know
if she is still ticking and chiming so...

You see my friends, Angels are everywhere...
they live and breathe and they truely care!
I met one just this morning my friends!
He will be with me to the very end!


Autumn....true story, and that ole Grandmother Clock of my Mamas is chiming as I write this my friend!
A wonderful thing to my ears, I thought I wouldnt like to hear again!
Yet each time she chimes and my face breaks a smile ,
it is the sweetest Angel music to my ears for awhile! :)

Felonius assault

Catcha glimpse of

Grab yur wife
tight and swear!
While you look at
the moonlight.
Act as if ya dont care
So you can get up tomorrow
fight for your life
your job...your world
as you knew it !
Take ahold of your
life, hold on with
all your might!
This worlds gone
to hell ...
sinners dont tell!
Nothings easy anymore
Life is so unstable
I gotta work till I am 74?
Fvck these clowns
I am out sooner
than later!
They can have
their little sick
world , fight till
they all die...
right now I'm bored
Nothings worth all
the pain and misery!
Put before me...
sickness and hate
fire and disallusion.
Too much confusion.
Politicians lying
young men dying!
***holes spreading disease
while young people bleed!
Honestly I try to forget it all
but every Sunday morning
I read it and weep!
If The Lord ever needed to
make a Show...
I pray it is next year!
Before we all BLOWWWWWWWWW!


Amen! This poor , poor Land! America? Where did it go?
