  • Oh no, no hard feelings whatsoever! I enjoy spirited discussions and I do not get bent out of shape when I'm wrong either. About the only thing that tics me off in here is blatant rudeness - and then I just quit corresponding with that particular person. Hope you have a great week and upcoming weekend!
    A cold and wet November dawn
    And there are no barking sparrows
    Just emptiness to dwell upon.

    I fell into a winter slide
    And ended up the kind of kid who goes down chutes too narrow
    Just eking out my measly pies.

    But I learned fast how to keep my head up 'cause I
    Know there is this side of me that
    Wants to grab the yoke from the pilot and just
    Fly the whole mess into the sea.

    ~an excerpt from Young Pilgrims, the Shins
    Khalil Gibran:
    I am forever walking upon these shores,
    Betwixt the sand and the foam,
    The high tide will erase my foot-prints,
    And the wind will blow away the foam.
    But the sea and the shore will remain

    It's an image of eternity that underlies reality, and beside which, all our lives, we are ever-walking, like a shore to an ocean. All the 'things' of the world around us are the foam on the crests of the waves that rise up from eternity.

    Dan Fogelberg:
    Pressed in the pages of some aging text
    Lies an old lily, a'crumbling
    Marking a moment of childish respect
    Long since betrayed and forgotten

    Time stills the singing a child holds so dear
    And I'm just beginning to hear
    Gone are the pathways the child followed home
    Gone, like the sand and the foam

    I'm confidently sure that Fogelberg was influenced by Gibran.
    Foam in the waves = Gibran? Fogelberg? (not too dissimilar, come to think of it)
    Three little birds = Marley?
    Hi Falvlun! Are you well rested today? I certainly hope so because you are going to need every bit of your strength if you decide to read my new "Late Night Crazy Thoughts Thread."
