Me and my brother, it just used to be me and my brother, we used to do things together. 
We used to have fun. We used to roam the streets. 
There was people suffering of pain and hunger. 
Some people their tongues were hangin' out of their mouth.

Just got to get fixed up first. Things aren't always gonna be this way. 
You know that, don't you?

In fact, all three of us been goin' places, lookin' for things, searchin' for things, 
goin' on adventures. They told everybody they were brother and sister. 
My brother didn't want nobody to know. You know how people are. 
You tell 'em somethin' - they start talkin'.

I met this guy named Ding-Dong. He told me the whole Earth is goin' up in flame. 
Flames will come out of here and there and they'll just rise up. 
The mountains are gonna go up in big flames, the water's gonna rise in flames. 
There's gonna be creatures runnin' every which way, some of them burnt, 
half of their wings burnin'. People are gonna be screamin' and hollerin' for help. 
See, the people that have been good they're gonna go to heaven and escape all that fire. 
But if you've been bad, God don't even hear you. He don't even hear ya talkin'. 
Days of Heaven ~1978

{ Happy Birthday } T. M. ~ and M. T. ~

Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's 
watching and live like its heaven on earth.

hope you all had a happy thanksgiving. ours was pretty mellow. we went with pork this year instead of turkey, which turned out to be a dynamite decision along with a host of delicious vegan dishes added to the mix. needless to say we were all well fed and my brother kept the libations flowing. by the time darkness fell we were all feeling groovy, albeit a bit weary.

in the past few weeks i've been quite lucky to be as busy as i have, especially so as i can see directly into the eye of the dark winter months. won't be long now. the thread that will ultimately pull me through is all the planning for next spring and summer which is now in full throttle. lots of exciting stuff to share some new, some belated and yes, flowers too.

so stay tuned...more musings to be cultivated ~ thank you to those who have happened by chance, to my faithful followers, and to those of you near and dear who continue to support my efforts. without you i would be lost.

Every moment in your life is a turning and every one a choosing. Somewhere you made a choice. All followed to this. The accounting is scrupulous. The shape is drawn. No line can be erased. I had no belief in your ability to move a coin to your bidding. How could you? A person's path through the world seldom changes and even more seldom will it change abruptly. And the shape of your path was visible from the beginning. ~cormac mccarthy

a new one {for the stocking perhaps} and have a listen
