quote of the day...

No one has yet realized the wealth of sympathy, the kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure.

song of the week

I live on the wrong side of life,
I’m the one you fear as you hold your wife.
I run were the darker crowds run.
On the rain swept streets were black rain runs.

I play were the darker kids play
I’m the one who goes out when you end your day.
I dance were the darker crowds dance,
In the pitch black clubs in a clove stained trance

I see things the darker kids see
Though you wouldn’t believe all that’s happened to me.
I’ve been to the backside of hell,
And I’ve played with your fear and enjoyed it well

This our time, the nights our day
We ’ll dance this fading life away.

fall...

Happy Mabon!

Remember what you have and give thanks. the universe is Abundance.

I have a roof over my head.
I have a husband who loves me and treats me well.
I have a daughter who is wonderful and smart and healthy.
I have family who takes care of me.
I have friends who are like family to me.
I have feline companions who are a delight to me.
I have a life that is full of creation and magic and light.

I have been given talents to use for my betterment and the betterment of those around me.
I have been given the opportunity to gain knowledge and learn how to help people be well.
I have been given the opportunity to expand my talents into true skills.

For this, I give thanks.

song of the week (bonus track):

Abney Park: Root of all Evil

All these roots run deep,
And this tree is old,
This trunk is rotten
All these leaves have mold

is it in our blood?
or is it from abuse?
past generations
legacy of misuse?

I know my blood runs hot,
And I've seen my blood is thick
I'm told my bloods not sweet,
And I cry, "my soul is sick"

we're the childern of childern
and we're handing down there pain
the root of all evil
is the sanity left to gain?

chorus -
we were the victims, we were the culprits
we were the children who cry at night
we are the hunted, and we do the hurting
we are the children who cry at night

the fathers father father
may have made this truth
or was it in HIS blood
this legacy of abuse

we're the children of children
and we're handing down their pain
the root of all evil
is the sanity left to gain?

Chorus

All these roots run deep,
And this tree is old,
This trunk is rotten
All these leaves have mold

is it in our blood?
or is it from abuse?
past generations
legacy of misuse?

song of the week

Abney Park: Stigmata Martyr

A heroine, A deity
On Heroin, or vanity
To jack their personality
Beyond normal humanity.

A crowd of massed humanity,
Bow and worship diligently.
He’s built a loyal following
And they steer him thoroughly.

We don't cry for the gods that die by our hands.
We throw stones if our gods take a stand.
We create and distroy our Stigmata Martyrs.

But jealous man plots from the pews,
No need for valid righteousness.
One slightly truthful word set free,
Will turn the tides quite easily.

Our accusations need not be,
What would bury mortal man.
The sins of our own deity,
are tiny, but on these we stand.

So once upon the podium,
A crucifix we then erect,
And nail our hero heartily,
hands and feet, we bind his neck.

The reasons for our worship fades,
Our Idol drenched in his own blood,
Forgotten are the virtues that we,
Valued beyond royalty.

With joy we dig his shallow grave,
Anticipating pains to come.
We watch the wriggling dance of death,
And laugh light hearted at deaths fun.

We pounded out the joyous light.
Our saviors buried now for years.
A legend now of time gone by,
A martyr of forgotten tears.

a thought, a mere thought...

Who ranks as the highest? One who does not harm anything. One who never retaliates. One who is always at peace regardless of the other person's disposition. - Buddha

a thought, a mere thought...

There is an optimism which nobly anticipates the eventual triumph of great moral lows, and there is an optimism which cheerfully tolerates unworthiness.
