Monk Crossing

Peace is flowing like a river
Flowing out of you and me
Flowing out into the desert
Setting all the captives free we live near a Buddhist temple
it backs up to the trail where I walk the dogs each day
we were out later than usual Thursday morning
and came across the Monks on their morning stroll
for some reason...couldn't get this song out of my head after passing them

Weeping Buddha

He weeps for our country!

Courage is waning. Fear prevails.

Intolerance grows. Innocent children die in the womb.

There is no shame. Our country dies.
And the Buddha weeps.

And many of us around the world also weep,
and pray, and act.

Spin little spider, Spin!

Look, he's crawling up my wall

Black and hairy, very small

Now he's up above my head

Hanging by a little thread

Boris the spider

Boris the spider

~The Who~ Boris the Spider

the dogs and i witnessed this spider masterpiece while walking the other day! too cool

You're just like crosstown traffic

So hard to get through to you

Crosstown traffic

I don't need to run over you

Crosstown traffic

All you do is slow me down

And I'm tryin' to get on the other side of town

Family Game Night

Across these fields, across this town
Standing up on solid ground
I won’t be broken, I won’t be silent
I’ve heard the lines and I just don’t believe or buy it
I will not be ashamed, walk away or shift the blame
I’m right here inside my shoes
Saying “I will not be moved.”

I’m still standing
Lets get it straight, let’s make this clear
I’m still standing, I’m still standing here

I'm Still Standing - Carrie Newcomer happened to be playing on the iPod while we were playing jenga...seemed a fitting soundtrack :

Good Night Bush

In the situation room

There was a toy world

And a Flight Costume

And a Picture of -

A Refinery Plume

And there were profiteers giving three cheers

A nation great

A Church and State

A pair of towers

And a balance of powers

A Grand Old Party to war in a rush

And a quiet Dick Cheney whispering Hush

~Excerpts from Good Night Bush by Eric Orlgen and Gan Golan~

did u know it's bad luck to take a pic of a sk8r?

He's just a boy,
and i'm just a girl
can I make it anymore obvious?
we are in love,
haven't you heard
how we rock each others world
I'm with the skater boy

~sk8r boi by Avril Lavigne~
i didn't know about the bad luck thing either...
