a dream goes on forever.....

A million old soldiers will fade away

But a dream goes on forever

I’m left standing here, I’ve got nothing to say

All is silent within my dream

A thousand true loves will live and die

But a dream lives on forever

The days and the years will go streaking by

But the time has stopped in my dream

We all have our everyday hopes and fears

And you’ll find no exception in me

But that doesn’t get me through a sea of tears

Over life’s biggest tragedy

You’re so long ago and so far away

But my dream lives on forever

I guess I believe that I’ll see you one day

For without it there is no dream

You’re so far away and so long ago

But my dream goes on forever

And how much I loved you you’ll never know

’til you join me within my dream

what i did on my vacation........

the godfather, say anything, cool hand luke, the rocky horror picture show, a streetcar named desire, frenzy, the trip, psych out, a time to kill, guess who's coming to dinner, on the waterfront, the spiral staircase, the enchanted cottage, invitation, grand hotel, sunset boulevard, phantom of the paradise. and orson well's version of 'the scottish play.'

sometimes the most relaxing and soul cleansing thing you can do is take a couple of days off....and be a complete sofa slug. 'movie days' are such a wonderful gift!!

true colors.........

so, while we're on the subject of trees........(and i certainly was in my last blog--- sorta---)....we have the most beautiful maple tree in our front yard, and this year it's especially outstanding in it's fall clothes. i watch folks drive down the street and slow down and just stare at it in awe. all the walkers do the same. on election day i had a lady actually pull in the driveway just to tell me that she had never seen such a gorgeous tree, and that she's always wanted to just sit under it and stare up at all the beautiful colors!! i told her she was welcome any time, but i don't know if she's actually done it yet or not. i was also taking out the trash this morning and a little old man drove up, stopped his car, got out and started taking pictures. i tell you, you really feel the majesty of GOD and are humbled at how beautiful nature is when you see something so lovely. nothing man can create can even come close. humans may cause the world to seem like an ugly place, but there is beauty everywhere......sometimes right outside your front door!

wait for it..........

There is unrest in the forest,

There is trouble with the trees,

For the maples want more sunlight

And the oaks ignore their pleas.

The trouble with the maples,

(And they're quite convinced they're right)

They say the oaks are just too lofty

And they grab up all the light

.But the oaks can't help their feelings

If they like the way they're made

.And they wonder why the maples

Can't be happy in their shade.

There is trouble in the forest,

And the creatures all have fled,

As the maples scream "Oppression!"

And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union

And demanded equal rights.

"The oaks are just too greedy;

We will make them give us light."

Now there's no more oak oppression,

For they passed a noble law,

And the trees are all kept equal

By hatchet, axe, and saw.
