The Gate

We starve-look
At one another
Short of breath
Walking proudly in our winter coats
Wearing smells from laboratories
Facing a dying nation
Of moving paper fantasy
Listening for the new told lies
With supreme visions of lonely tunes

Inside something there is a rush of
Who knows what stands in front of
Our lives
I fashion my future on films in space
SilenceTells me secretly

Manchester England England
Across the Atlantic Sea
And I'm a genius genius
I believe in God
And I believe that God believes in Claude
That's me, that's me, that's me

Our space songs on a spider web sitar
Life is around you and in you
Answer for Timothy Leary, dearie
Let the sunshine
Let the sunshine in
The sunshine in...

--Flesh Failures/Let the Sunshine In

Thank you, Tulgey Wood singers, for that heartfelt and enthusiastic performance. As you all can see by the beam of light that shines down upon me and travels with me today, that I am emerging from the dark despair of the downtrodden. Through prayer and discipline and begging, I am freed from the oppression I have borne for many a year.

I shall take this lightening as the gift that it is and use it to travel onward. To carve out a future for myself and mine that meets our needs and makes us happy and gives us room to do for others. No longer will I be subject to the whims of fate. I shall prevail, because, my dear woodland friends, I hold the power of discipline, of restraint, of creativity, of courage, and of love. These five things shall jettison me forward. I have spoken to you many times of each element. Alone they are powerful, but together they are unstoppable.

Even now, as I feel the clouds moving over to block out my light and I feel my soul sag, I straighten. I resolve to bend and not break, to love and not leave, to build and not rend, and to speak my mind and not vent my spleen. Pray for me, dear ones, as I venture forth through a new path frought with the unknown.

Ben Franklin Rocks!

La, La, La!

So, I was tagged. I'll let Big Orange explain:

HERE’S how it works. Read the following, leave comments. If you like (and if you’ve not heretofore done this with anyone else’s) request a letter of the alphabet from me (Flannery) in your comment. I will give you a letter in my comment on your comment, and in YOUR blog you take that letter and write a blog-cake about those words. That is, choose 10 words that start with whatever letter I give you and tell me why you chose those words and what relevance they have to you. For an example, check out Kari or Jas.OK, lets start.

My letter of the day is L...

1. Lucy...

My favorite second-born, daughter. She's a bit more grown up these days; she's two. She has a smile that lights up the room and she is quite a little comedian. I love Lucy.

2. Liberty...

I love my freedom. I love your freedom.

3. Love...

That's all you need, right?

4. Loaf...

I love bread and I love goofing off. This word hits two for the price of one.

5. Life...

What would I do without it?

6. Language...

I love words and using them to get messages across in unique, memorable and special ways. I also enjoy learning foreign languages; it gives me insight into a culture other than my own.

7. Library...

I love books, especially free ones. Libraries and schools are the foundation for a democratic society. Therefore, they help guarantee our liberty. I also like the way they smell.

8. Luck...

I believe in luck. I believe I'm lucky. It works for me. I've skirted many a tragic downfall with Lady Luck by my side.

9. Lyric

Poems, songs, Lyres: all dear to my heart.

10. Leafy

I like my foliage, what can I say.
