  • Hope
    Her mind is a graveyard
    Her heart is an island
    She and I are not good friends
    but I have known Her all my life
    She sits in my belly...hollow and distant
    and her whispered words of encouragement will never comfort me
    I am on to Her tricks
    Go away I tell Her, I am busy today, I have got things to do
    but this acquaintance never knows when to leave
    It is not a question of why She befriended me in the first place
    It is more a question of why I choose to let Her stay




    Quoted from In my Fathers Den
    (exceptional New Zealand film)
    from original book by Maurice Gee

    So we’ll go no more a-roving
    So late into the night,
    Though the heart be still as loving,
    And the moon be still as bright.

    For the sword outwears its sheath,
    And the soul wears out the breast,
    And the heart must pause to breathe,
    And Love itself have rest.

    Though the night was made for loving,
    And the day returns too soon,
    Yet we’ll go no more a-roving
    By the light of the moon.

    Lord Byron
    (1788-1824)

    My quote of the day is from a Thesaurus. I love reading about language and I like the detailed description of the difference and similarity between these words.

    "CHOOSE THE RIGHT WORD
    absolve, acquit, exempt, exonerate, forgive, pardon, vindicate
    To varying degrees, all of these words mean to free from guilt or blame, and some are most frequently heard in a legal or political context. Absolve is the most general term, meaning to set free or release—not only from guilt or blame, but from a duty or obligation (absolved from her promise to serve on the committee) or from the penalties for their violation. Pardon is usually associated with the actions of a government or military official (President Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon following his resignation in the wake of the Watergate scandal) and specifically refers to a release from prosecution or punishment. It is usually a legal official who decides to acquit someone—that is, release someone from a specific and formal accusation of wrongdoing (the court acquitted the accused due to lack of evidence). Exonerate suggests relief (its origin suggests the lifting of a burden), often in a moral sense, from a definite charge so that not even the suspicion of wrongdoing remains (completely exonerated from the accusation of cheating). A person who is vindicated is also off the hook, usually due to the examination of evidence (she vindicated herself by producing the missing documents). Exempt has less to do with guilt and punishment and more to do with duty and obligation (exempt from paying taxes). To forgive, however, is the most magnanimous act of all: it implies not only giving up on the idea that an offense should be punished, but also relinquishing any feelings of resentment or vengefulness (“to err is human, to forgive divine”)."

    The sun'll come out
    Tomorrow
    Bet your bottom dollar
    That tomorrow
    There'll be sun!

    Just thinkin' about
    Tomorrow
    Clears away the cobwebs,
    And the sorrow
    'Til there's none!

    When I'm stuck in a day
    That's gray,
    And lonely,
    I just stick out my chin
    And Grin,
    And Say,
    Oh

    The sun'll come out
    Tomorrow
    So ya gotta hang on
    'Til tomorrow
    Come what may

    Tomorrow!
    Tomorrow!
    I love ya
    Tomorrow!

    You're always
    A day
    A way!

    Tomorrow!
    Tomorrow!
    I love ya
    Tomorrow!

    You're always
    A day
    A way!

    If a crazed kid with a gun can change history,
    Imagine what we as a whole,
    Can do to change the world.

  • Sleeping Sickness

    Once upon a time there was a land in which people thought that by sleeping with each other they could get their partners' magical powers and avoid loneliness.

    They were wrong.

    Well, I'm guessing it's because most people don't have access to fire hoses, but I'm no scientist.
