~Copperline~


Even the old folks never knew
Why they call it like they do
I was wondering since the age of two
Down on copperline
Copper head, copper beech
Copper kettles sitting side by each
Copper coil, cup ogeorgia peach
Down on copperline
Half a mile down to morgan creek
Leaning heavy on the end of the week
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake
Down on copperline
We were down on copperline
One summer night on the copperline
Slip away past supper time
Wood smoke and moonshine
Down on copperline
One time I saw my daddy dance
Watched him moving like a man in a trance
He brought it back from the war in france
Down onto copperline
Branch water and tomato wine
Creosote and turpentine
Sour mash and new moon shine
Down on copperline
Down on copperline
First kiss ever I took
Like a page from a romance book
The sky opened and the earth shook
Down on copperline
Down on copperline
Took a fall from a windy height
I only knew how to hold on tight
And pray for love enough to last all night
Down on copperline
Day breaks and the boys wakes up
And the dog barks and the birds sings
And the sap rises and the angels sigh, yeah
I tried to go back, as if I could
All spec house and plywood
Tore up and tore up good
Down on copperline
It doesnt come as a surprise to me
It doesnt touch my memory
Man Im lifting up and rising free
Down on over copperline
Half a mile down to morgan creek
Im only living for the end of the week
Hercules and a hog-nosed snake
Down on copperline, yeah
Take me down on copperline
Oh, down on copperline
Take me down on copperline

Got caught in a storm this evening .. ah it was the weather .. But I am well aware of the hurt and anger out there.. I wish I could help and do more alas .. shakes my head .. I had to walk away from two situations One was a conflict between two people ( that I do not know) the other was just a person with so much bitterness .. and instead of trying to dig in and help.. I simply turned the page .. It's not that I do not care . I think it is I care too much .. and when I look I see things .. what I see are a great deal of unhappy people . Sad really .. humanity people really should advance and dig in deep and dare I say find some !
Why Copperline ? *grins* It the simple things .. oh how I wish more people could enjoy the simple things, the little things , the best things of all !!
example went to do my taxes this evening my husband on the phone .. The accountant had some other things going on .. I smiled and said .. I can come back .. and he was so grateful !!
Heck I might even file extension !! (( my husband so does not agree ha! we shall have a debate .. and funny thing we will laugh about it .. not fight )) *grins* but we did talk about what i had seen earlier .. His reply?
What am I going to do with you and all that passion of yours ? .......I said I think got a bit more today .. we laughed ..

You know what I learned today ?? I learned that people that I care about don't stress me out .. It those that I really don't know that do .. wipes away a happy tear .. for that was a hard lesson .. it dare I say hurt *grins* Sighs as I listen to the heavy rain .. it sounds nice .. and perhaps after a few days of it .. things shall be greener . Ah the little things :)
just some random thoughts .. *smile* ... be good to yourselves and to those that make YOU happy .. fingers crossed people never stop caring and sharing about the good things in life !! Oh those that let me care *hugss* and thank YOU soo much for making my life happier and safer !! See ya in my dreams !!

~ A quest~


"To dream the impossible dream,
to fight the unbeatable foe,
to bear with unbearable sorrow,
to run where the brave dare not go .
To right the unrightable wrong,
to love pure and chaste from afar,
to try when your arms are too weary,
to reach the unreachable star.
This is my quest, to follow that star --
no matter how hopeless, no matter how far.
To fight for the right without question or pause,
to be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause.
And I know if I'll only be true to this glorious quest
that my heart will be peaceful and calm
when I'm laid to my rest.
And the world will be better for this,
that one man scorned and covered with scars
still strove with his last ounce of courage.
To reach the unreachable stars."
-Man of La Mancha
*Smiles*
What a spectacular piece of music and lyric .. and yes ..a most passionate performance ...sort of makes one think .. how much one has with that , how much harder one should make the effort to try ... do, give, and share .. :-) once again no surprise here not all will get this and that's alright for the ones that do *grins* Thank YOU !!! ..
As Indeed .. The world will be better ..for this !!

~Sleeping satellite~


You never know when someone might catch a dream from you.
Or something you say may open up the windows of a mind that seeks light;
The way you live may not matter at all,
But you never know, it might.
And just in case it could be that another's life, through you,
might possibly change for the better
with a better and brighter view,
it seems it might be worth a try at pointing the way to the right;
Of course, it may not matter at all,
but then again, it might.
In any case ... Thank YOU .... for delightful moon light skies !!
*grins*

~Song of The Wave~



Song of the Wave
BY Khalil Gibran

The strong shore is my beloved
And I am his sweetheart.
We are at last united by love,
And then the moon draws me from him.
I go to him in haste and depart
Reluctantly, with many little farewells.
I steal swiftly from behind the blue horizon,
To cast the silver of my foam upon the gold of his sand,
And we blend in melted brilliance.
I quench his thirst and submerge his heart;
He softens my voice and subdues my temper.
At dawn I recite the rules of love upon his ears,
And he embraces me longingly.
At eventide I sing to him the song of hope,
And then print smooth kisses upon his face;
I am swift and fearful,
but he is quiet, patient, and thoughtful
.His broad bosom soothes my restlessness
.As the tide comes we caress each other,
When it withdraws, I drop to his feet in prayer.
Many times have I danced around mermaids
As they rose from the depths
And rested upon my crest to watch the stars;
Many times have I heard lovers complain of their smallness,
And I helped them to sigh.
Many times have I teased the great rocks
And fondled them with a smile,
But never have I received laughter from them;
Many times have I lifted drowning souls
And carried them tenderly to my beloved shore.
He gives them strength as he takes mine.
Many times have I stolen gems from the depths
And presented them to my beloved shore.
He takes them in silence,
But still I give for he welcomes me ever.
In the heaviness of night,
When all creatures seek the ghost of slumber,
I sit up, singing at one time and sighing at another.
I am awake always.Alas!
Sleeplessness has weakened me!
But I am a lover, and the truth of love is strong.
I may be weary, but I shall never die.

Ah as we rush about .. I think we are suppose to be slowing down .. grins as we slow down .. heck its time to pick it up .. in this thing we call a Paradox ahh that would be life .. the depth .. not the drama is what I seek .. and to be in twined in it ..is a magical place .. I woke up to snow this am and went to sleep to a wicked wind storm .. that is the power ..of mother nature .. sorry it humbles me .. gosh I love where I live .. change of season and all . it takes a mind a bit deep.. Ha! .. and some of these thoughts perhaps are best kept to one's self .. then again .. its just some stuff on my mind .." I dont' like to see so much pain"
indeed I reach up and out from deep from the inside ..
hugsssssssssssssss !! .

*laughing*


If
Rudyard Kipling
If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream--and not make dreams your master,

If you can think--and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings

And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with kings--nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And--which is more--you'll be a Man, My Son !
*smiles* and *Ponders*
Gosh !! I do love that poem !!
"There is no such thing in any one's life as an unimportant day."

and just because !!!! .. laughing !!!!!!!!!!!



A Toast ~~~ on this one indeed !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

~Every Kind of People ~



I am using Joe Cocker's version of this cut . why .. it still brings tears to my eyes .. Its soo true !!!
When will people get it .. there is really no place to hide .. Ah .. "He's got game" some may say .. ah indeed .. bring your best game forward then ; because no matter who one be .one will be ahh one might think they be .. I have found .. ..there is one thing .. One grand thing .. Indeed For the transparency of a man .. is the one thing that shall always shine !!!
Remember that .. humble view .. I have dealt with so many real life people .. I look into their eyes ..I listen .. I read their body language .. I care and spend time when I am in the room ..
On second life .. ahh we roll the dice .. sometime we click .. sometimes not .. sometimes folks are on a mission .. greed self .. advancement who knows ..
but bottom line .. The Transparency still reads true .. Ideas no one own them .. I personally simply go to what I call " God's chalk board " and fetch some more .. grins .. truth !
But as the real world gets a bit more complicated and it shall .. Perhaps people can be a wee bit kinder in the second life .. perhaps people can understand that it is an escape and a good place rather then use it to vent and hurt others with negatives and angers and slander .. just some thoughts there .. I wonder . sometimes if a computer and the people you visit with daily or perhaps regularly annoy you .. then perhaps it time to do a bit of real life and look into some eyes and see some real life body language better yet see how the real world deals and reacts to YOU !!
Big smile .. ah It sure does take every kind of people .. My greatest gift is that I know what I seek in this life .. I seek .. theVery Best of The every kind of People that do indeed Make the world go around ..
For WoW some of YOU ((that are kind enough to be my friend )) are just the finest my genuine gifts of being I know .. goosebumps at how remarkable and special this thing called life can be !!
Family ~Spouses ~Friends . Love them with all your heart .. care for them always .. give it all you have in any life .. Be in the room .. so perhaps my favorie lyrics in the song ..
"You know that love's the only goal
That could bring a peace to any soul
Hey, and every man's the same
He wants the sunshine in his name"
"at the end of day" .. grins ..
hey ...there is nothing like a good peaceful enjoyable Dance .. Yes ??

Every Kind of People
Joe Cocker
Said the fight to make ends meet
Keeps a man upon his feet
Holding down his job
Trying to show he can't be bought
It takes every kind of people
To make what life's about
Every kind of people
To make the world go 'round
Someone's looking for a lead
In his duty to a King or creed
Protecting what he feels is right
Fights against wrong with his life
There's no profit in deceit
Honest men know that
Revenge do not taste sweet
Whether yellow, black or white
Each and every man's the same inside
It takes every kind of people
To make what life's about
Every kind of people
To make the world go 'round
You know that love's the only goal
That could bring a peace to any soul
Hey, and every man's the same
He wants the sunshine in his name
It takes every kind of people
To make what life's about
Every kind of people
To make the world go 'round
It takes every kind of people
To make what life's about
Every kind of people
To make the world go 'round...

~A Dream Within a Dream ~

A Dream Within a Dream
The Life of Edgar Allan Poe
by Nigel Barnes
Peter Owen
"Only exaggerating a little, Arthur Conan Doyle said "each of Poe's stories is a root from which a whole literature has developed". Crime fiction began with his Parisian sleuth Dupin, model for Holmes and Poirot; and he was also a pioneer in SF, fantasy and horror, wrote classic comic hoaxes, and was arguably the first significant American poet. Besides Conan Doyle, his admirers included Baudelaire, Yeats, Dostoevsky and Verne. Yet his 22-year career was one of almost unbroken misery, maudlin boozing and disastrous loves that followed his wife Virginia's death. Barnes ably pleads his case where posterity has been cruel, insisting Virginia was no exploited child bride and her husband no lifelong drunk - just someone who timed his bingeing terribly, as when he was due to meet President Tyler about a government job. Marking the 200th anniversary of Poe's birth, his biography makes unusually good use of the author's letters. But it fails to crack the conundrum of how such an astonishing literary legacy emerged from such a chaotic life."
Grins I could post the poem alas ..
....This version enough...
A wee tired I be .. so this goes to March 20.2009
A Toast to the first Day of Spring .. in these parts it's still gray yet the air is pure and somehow with it the passion and mind set is able to run deep .. Most Magical.. Yes ! It really is The little things that can and shall always capture one most and take one to a very special place ..
*smile*
It is indeed with out a doubt The Depth of and in an other's mind ,soul and being ..
Respect and Love it I do .. Not all get it .. but when one ......does .... Kismet !!!

Jasper Morello Music Video (aka Industrial Steampunk Animation 2.0)



The Mysterious Explorations of Jasper Morello
The original is quite brilliant . I have watched it many times the 26 min voyage and journey ah .. magical ..
just so well done !! (( personal note ..grins... i so envy the mind set of the narrator and th view ahh .. want that compass ha! ))
above it the cut version .. for the full version see here .. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vORsKyopHyM
Nominated for an Oscar and for a BAFTA award, Jasper Morello is a short feature made in a unique style of silhouette animation developed by director Anthony Lucas and inspired by the work of authors Edgar Alan Poe and Jules Verne. In the frontier city of Carpathia, Jasper Morello discovers that his former adversary Doctor Claude Belgon has returned from the grave. When Claude reveals that he knows the location of the ancient city of Alto Mea where the secrets of life have been discovered, Jasper cannot resist the temptation to bring his own dead wife Amelia back. But they are captured by Armand Forgette, leader of the radical Horizontalist anti-technology movement, who is determined to reanimate his terrorist father Vasco. As lightning energises the arcane machineries of life in the floating castle of Alto Mea, Jasper must choose between having his beloved restored or seeing the government of Gothia destroyed. Set in a world of iron dirigibles and steam powered computers, this gothic horror mystery tells the story of Jasper Morello, a disgraced aerial navigator who flees his Plague-ridden home on a desperate voyage to redeem himself.Also winner of the Grand Prix award at the Annecy Animation Festival, Jasper has also won the top honours at the Canadian Film Centre's Worldwide Short Film Festival, Best Animation at Flickerfest 2005, Best Animation at the Sydney Film Festival Dendy awards and Best Animation at Toronto worldwide shorts.

~Perhaps~


Perhaps
Just a woman secretly trembling in fear still from the past
Indeed A Wonderous Man with a kind heart
He wipes off her face a tear
Never knowing this is the start
The start of her healing
She has not seen his eyes
Yet still She gets a new feeling
Her tears began to dry
He squeezes her hand
He shows his amazing eyes
He takes his stand
He realizes she never lies
She smiles at him
He smiles back
He has a most dynamic presence
She feels safe at last
.............
she awakes from her dream ~ with special good thoughts
.......smiles .......

May you always have...

Walls for the winds
A roof for the rain
Tea beside the fire Laughter to cheer you Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire.
May joy and peace surround you...
May joy and peace surround you

contentment latch your door,
and happiness be with you now and bless you evermore!


May the blessing of light be upon you...
May the blessing of light be upon you,
Light on the outside, Light on the inside.
With God's sunlight shining on you,

May your heart glow with warmth,
Like a turf fire that welcomes friends and strangers alike.
May the light of the Lord shine from your eyes,

Like a candle in the window,
Welcoming the weary traveller.
May there always be work for your hands to do
May your purse always hold a coin or two;
May the sun always shine on your windowpane;

May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain;
May the hand of a friend always be near you;
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May your neighbors respect you...
May your neighbors respect you,

Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.

May those who love us ...
May those who love us, love us;

And for those who don't love us,
May God turn their hearts;
And if He doesn't turn their hearts,
May He turn their ankles,
So we will know them by their limping!

May the road rise to meet you...
May the road rise to meet you,

may the wind be ever at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,

and the rains fall soft upon your fields.

And until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

~Sailing~

/
Sailing
It's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find tranquility
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me
It's not far to never never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me
Sailing
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free
Fantasy
It gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me
It's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And when the wind is right you can sail away
And find serenity
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me
Christopher Cross ..
Whew *beams* after a magical weekend I did indeed .. sail and made it thru ~ The Ides of March~ Julius Caesar's bloody assassination on March 15, 44 B.C., forever marked March 15, or the Ides of March, as a day of infamy. It has fascinated scholars and writers ever since.For ancient Romans living before that event, however, an ides was merely one of several common calendar terms used to mark monthly lunar events. The ides simply marked the appearance of the full moon. ~~~~~~~~~
HUGSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS with many Twirlssssssssssssssssssss
Smilesssssssssssssss .................now let's all go grab hold of that Monday and make it a Great Day !!!!

With some of the finest builders, scriptures creative minds and genuine people I have met on the grid .. (( ~ The Team and The build idea are in place .. and now comes the hope for fund raising with the support from all with hoping to spark an interest with out anyone feeling pressure .. and well it's all pretty exciting to see slowly come to life ..~ ))
A while back ..I asked if I could put a most special New Babbage Team together with some most special and remarkable people that I am humbled to know that each agreed to work with me to represent our community for this most Powerful Cause . When our Fine genuine "Good Caring" Mayor said .."Go for it" I twirleddddddddddddddd .. For this has been a dream of mine on second life since last summer ... Imagine real dreams can come true .in any world WoW WoW WoW !!! We shall launch the first of several fund raising events for Our wonderful Community at Piermont Landing's Steamfitters Industrial Gold theme Ball .... With a few very special Limited Creations created with RFL in mind .. All proceeds for these creative ( gosh wait till some see them grins ) artists fun creations go direct to RFL for the next 100 days ..

No drama no pomp just the facts .. about nine years ago right after we had just lost our Mom , we then lost a very special person in our lives to cancer ..to cervical cancer .. She was my older sister ( she was the dynamic fireball of passion the middle sister of three girls ) I am the youngest and the lessons she taught me were life changing ..She fought this monster . this awful battle hard with all she had .. for two long years and did not win .. But she shall never be forgotten not a day goes by I do not think of her .. she resides in the deepest place in my heart .. She was a Voyager in her own right .. A passionate woman 5'10 wonderful powder blue eyes .. dirty blond long natural curly hair ..a smile that filled the room .. Stunning woman and she knew how to live .. an Irish Gal thru and thru with the heart and passion and a mind set full of determination There was nothing she couldn't nail .. Something our own parents encouraged to try .. give it all you have and not give up .. Debbie didn't give up till she slipped into a coma at the end .. After watching her and being by her side for much of this .. gosh .. It changes one .. in many ways .. .. Makes one a wee deeper .. a wee bit more sensitive and whole lot more about caring .. just a different sort I guess .. You see it really isn't all about winning or loosing it is all about living and feeling as one goes along .... and perhaps just perhaps touching a few lives along the way in a positive light .. The cure of early stages of Cervical cancer were published later 1999 .. after we lost her .. Today we do not mourn Debbie we celebrate her life ..
I am so not perfect not even close but I am hoping with the help of my team mates and my wonderful community's support we can together really rally a most special community to try and find the time and make the effort to give and work together and help raise a wee bit of money to help Together we all can make a difference and find more cures for this evil Monster !!! Then we can each help to Indeed Change The World .....Thank YOU for making time to read .. I wish YOU and each of YOURS peace sunlight and the very best in all of YOU and YOURS dreams .... hope to continue to feel and know you in mine ... hugsssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss

in the dream god told him simply .. " Bring back the melodies and lyrics Carlos bring them back for me and the hearts of all man kind )) true story there ~

The Result ... ahhh A collection of incredible songs featuring artists from all walks of life .. The Name .... Supernatural ... The results
42nd Grammy Awards Mexican-born guitarist Carlos Santana took home an astounding eight trophies, earning his first Grammys in 13 years.

~Sweet Freedom~



Sweet Freedom

indeed I am on a musical journey as I work thur some numbers and I reflect be it an early am or a late evening ...
Gosh Life goes by so fast .. so much to do .. rolls eyes it is endless ..
inbetween sometimes in down time .. sigh .. that is the time ..
I worry .. I blame myself not others for a grate deal ....
ah Irish guilt .. I think I have felt guilty my entire life ... I don't fear people ..
I tend to drift away on my own .. ( that way no one knows) silly isn't ....
Recluse perhaps depression nah not really there are always people around me .. I just don't let a lot in close ..
It is a double edge sword .. people have their own problems and lives to live why on earth would they want to be bothered with whats going on
in a Sea Breeze's head .. smiles .. Humility is always most important to me ..

I was told at a young age "don't put your business in the street" .. humm then lost most my family at early very early stages in my life ..Kind of a paradox there ..
Been burned and hurt many times over .. that's life it happens .. My own fault of course can't blame another for my own hurt feelings or sad thoughts ..
Remember that when holding a grudge .. remember what did this person do to anger you so much ???
Oh I can think of one maybe two grins ok perhaps a few .. that there are just no words nor means to ever go back to .. But for the most part .. Its all good !!
I have to admit March and April are long hard months a lot of gray .. tricky times and days indeed .. Days are long this means .. lots more time to make and see things happen
On the same note .. More time for negative and conflicts and stress .. The armour ?? Having faith Being balanced . keeping ones spirit alive and up and aware of others feelings and Oh ya .. really good music I say ..

As for Rock and Roll that journey will be next week this week's are the dudes that just make me smile and say "Oh WoW" yeah !! I get it ...grins I feel better !!
Music should make a person feel .. I Do Dig ..passion .. Indeed emotions ,love, happy sad .. sentlemental .
I don't need a rif to reflect anger .. that sort of concerns me .. infact not evening going there !
We are if all do recall Free .. imagine .. Imagine not being able to listen to the tunes and the beats the riffs that make YOU Feel !!
imagine others not respecting Your feelings .. imagine .. it happens all the time .. who do folks think they are ?? Oh for the moment the tinsel town high takes over ....
But at the end of the day it is really for each of us .. ( the Me Myself and I ..in each of us looking in the mirror) .. all the friends .. the laughs .. the plans .. the family .. can't change the fact that at the end of the day .. we have to live take care of and respect ourselves .. in order for others to do so it's really that simple .. good days bad days .. everyone are ours to live thru .. support others always but be there for YOU .. it makes You a better YOU for YOUR next day .. *silly thoughts on sweet freedom* hey it's lent ...I'm out .. tomorrow some meat .. grins ...

Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still; teach a righteous man and he will add to his learning.
"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
For through me your days will be many, and years will be added to your life.

Proverbs 9:9-11 NIV

~ A little sizzle with that please ~



What on earth does it take ?? What more do they want ?? *Grins* Indeed
I do wish I had a dollar for every salesperson who bragged about how GREAT their relationships are with their customers,
and then lost a sale because they weren’t the lowest price or lowest bid.I would be a multi-millionaire.Every time your customers buy from you, they’re telling you, “You win. We elected you vendor and we’re voting with our dollars, our money.”
Is that sweet or what? Real sweet. Unless you don’t win.It’s a double loss. You lose, and the competition is celebrating. Reality bites.
Value are we worth it ?? is the Client ? Exceptance respect .. geunine consulting .. Results are pricless really
It's not about da money or the prices folks .. its all about the person the clients their needs and their self !!
Its all about customer service listening and ya that means Mondays let them vent ugh ugh the horror show of Monday !! Bring in da funk and noise .. laughs... can't wait for the Friday Waltz ....
For when it does all click and it shall .. It is bright lights Sizzle Hollywood created and developed to help their business it is all about and for them '''
What is that worth ??

I am not sure .. I just know I won't go low .. grins... and I shall try again today and sometimes if that means taking steps big ones back to go forward .. then let her rip ... step back by all means ..humble view " Don't cut a deal just to close " Results .. You will be working ya butts off and always selling yourself short .. You will make it about the dollar and never enjoy the dance and ride .. Most important .. The Sizzle is Lost !! ...sigh ..
Its all about the moment the pure click when it all flows and it can shall will .. if One does it with genuine heart and cares ................................ The art of the deal .. Knowing and loving and Playing the game with respect !
Trust me most aren't even trying never mind caring right now .. about the other person .. Make it not about You make it all about Jo Jo who ever that Jo Jo might be ... humble view ..

Why Steely Dan .grins.. Why not ... I am working on a real life project and been listening to their older stuff and some other of this mind set .. lot .. I find it all.. grins .. great stuff !!!
even a tail of a washed up drug dealer .. ha!
Amazing they lived made a fortune telling the stories of it .thru lyrics great riffs and beats .. really when you think about ..
http://donaldfagen.com/links.php
Confession I always thought Donald Fagen was a real life vampire .. he has always been so out there ..Have been blessed to See them live several times I think they are better today then ever .. (( as recent as two years ago ))
These guys are still playing and performing world wide .. their cuts are classics brilliant story tellers indeed !!
ponders ...
Aren't we all living a story of sorts somehow someway...
With out a doubt indeed its the artists of music that just have the abilities to kick it up a notch for some of we ..
The writers that tell the story the artists that paint ..it .. but it is the we that live and able to feel it that some how are able to take it break it out and are able to really bring it to life to feel their creations .. and dare I say dance thru our own lives a wee bit more content .. and I hope aware and have dreams
(( humble view))

The Last Great Race on Earth

About ten years ago My general manager asked me ..
What would be the ultimate Sponsorships to sell for YOU ?
my reply The Last Great Race on Earth......The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race
He laughed at me and said :"Really why on earth that " I went on to say it is everything The thrills the passion local international .. Nature Man .. Man's best friend .. We never really routed for the men or women We route for the dog teams .. Its also the kick off for some of us Spring is not too far off ... He nodded and said .. touche .. He called me Friday to ask .. You still routing for the dog teams ?? I said Indeed ! .. Goosebumps ..



WILLOW, Alaska (AP) — The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race has begun with 67 teams entered in this year's 1,100-mile race from Anchorage to Nome.
The restart, where the real racing begins, was held Sunday in Willow, about 50 miles from Anchorage, one day after the ceremonial start in Alaska's largest city.
The 2009 field contains 52 veterans and 15 rookies.
Two-time defending champion Lance Mackey is looking for his third consecutive win. He will have to go up against the likes of four-time winners Jeff King and Martin Buser, who are trying to match Rick Swenson's record five titles.
King finished second last year, while Buser was fifth.
Mitch Seavey, who won in 2004, will be looking for his second championship.
First Place this year's pot 610,000.00 cash plus various other prizes
The Last Great Race on Earth
"You can’t compare it to any other competitive event in the world! A race over 1150 miles of the roughest, most beautiful terrain Mother Nature has to offer. She throws jagged mountain ranges, frozen river, dense forest, desolate tundra and miles of windswept coast at the mushers and their dog teams. Add to that temperatures far below zero, winds that can cause a complete loss of visibility, the hazards of overflow, long hours of darkness and treacherous climbs and side hills, and you have the Iditarod. A race extraordinaire, a race only possible in Alaska."
