to you ! ; )

Ordinary riches can be stolen

real riches cannot.

In your soul are infinitely precious things

that cannot be taken from you.

Oscar Wilde

Bad news for us, we're in for -10 to - 25 below zero
with the wind chill and we still have ice on the
roads and on power lines, with winds picking up
tonight through monday or perhaps longer.

I will not take a chance with the computer in
case we start getting brown outs.

Guess this is as good a time as any for
a blogging break.

Thanks as always for passing through
and hope to see you again soon ; )


Times Of A Madman, Trials Of A Thief

Times of a madman and trials of a thief
Appalling decisions of squalling belief
Basking in bedrooms that hookers bequeath and they search for pleasure
Constant confusion calamities' plight
Doubtless it doubles the devil's delight
Easy as dying away from the light and they're dead in leisure

Footing the future as part of the bill God is within you and works through your will
Hating to stay there and watch while you kill all your sons and daughters
Imminent idols absurdly enchant
Justification to rave and to rant

Knighting is over we've learned how to plant and we'll change things gently

Love is the lotus of white baby blue
Man and his woman collapse when it's true

Never some try it 'cause they're scared of you but the fire is raging
Open your mind and your heart to be still
Peace is the endlessly crest of the hill
Quietly shattering and soft as a quill then it stays forever

Reality's frozen in art and your heart

Simply believe it and then you can start

Truth is the answer and not just a part yet the word's been spoken

Unity struggles on this speck of dust

Valiantly scraping the fast forming rust
World is as beauty it's under the crust in its formless phases
Xenophobes revel in ignorant fear
You are belittled when this is too near

Zoning's absurd and it shouldn't be here for we all are living

No ice here yet, but it's in the forecast.

I had the great pleasure of listening to your coffee cd this morning and your Christmas cd this afternoon! xxxoooChed

We just may never move from our house ... due to one perk.. (perk, get it?) being about a block from a hospital, we are one of just a string of houses that share their electrical "line". even during major blackouts we are put back "in the light" fast, while our neighbors across the street wonder why they are still in the dark it's a weird pattern of lucky houses that share the hospital line. During a major summer blackout we were down for 30 minutes while our neighbors were down for 30 hours.

I can grind beans and make coffee without electricity anyway -- I bet you can too!

Thanks to You all for your kind comments.

Winter is always an experience here compared to what I enjoyed on the west coast, which was either rain, fog or sun only ; )

And Ched, why do you always get the mail first, I wonder?

Was the cd as bad as you expected ?

Anonymous said...

your cd was great--we're playing it again & again.

Dennis likes the winter noises that start the cd, and we LOVE Louie Armstrong and the variety & fun.

anon: I'm glad you are enjoying it.
