last post and chorus

I was asked recently why St Pat's is 'my' holiday
1) Unlike Christmas and T-giving, it has not been ruined by family (and other) drama: it lacks the religious and commercial signifigance of these
2) Unlike Halloween, it had a genuine culteral reference, and what's more, has specific relevance to my own heritiage

and, of course, its a holiday that is almost entirely about CELEBRATION.

So, a pint (or an ounce) for the boys who died for their own freedom and independence from religous or state influence.

more tomorrow...

Seriously?

Everyone reading this is what I would most likely consider both well-read and well-informed. And NONE of you has mentioned John Updike, who passed away today at the age of 76, after fighting lung cancer.


See ya Rabbit.

nooooooooooo

In case you were wondering- it's shaping up to be a *hell* of a week...the story so far:

1. It is most certainly, definitely NOT 'what it is'. Please, if that's what you really think, you need to think some more.

2. Really? Number 6 and Khan on the same day? REALLY????

3. Missed SS and now I'm a bit sorry for it.

4. For those of you playing along at home, this is now Day 15 without Television here in the forest.

All I can do ( to paraphrase a friend of mine) is Laugh. seriously. Because otherwise, I'd lose my mind...

Things Behind the Sun

This came up on my mp3 player on my way to work this morning- I sometimes
forget how much I like Nick Drake, this tune in particular...thought I'd
share.


Please beware of them that stare
They'll only smile to see you while
Your time away

And once you've seen what they have been
To win the earth just won't seem worth

Your night or your day

Who'll hear what I say?

Look around you find the ground
Is not so far from where you are
But don't be too wise

For down below they never grow
They're always tired and charms are hired
From out of their eyes

Never surprise

Take your time and you'll be fine
And say a prayer for people there
Who live on the floor
And if you see what's meant to be
Don't name the day or try to say
It happened before

Don't be shy you learn to fly
And see the sun when day is done
If only you see

Just what you are beneath a star
That came to stay one rainy day
In autumn for free

Yes, be what you'll be

Please beware of them that stare
They'll only smile to see you while
Your time away

And once you've seen what they have been
To win the earth just won't seem worth
Your night or your day

Who'll hear what I say

Open up the broken cup
Let goodly sin and sunshine in
Yes that's today
And open wide the hymns you hide
You'll find renown while people frown
At things that you say
But say what you'll say

About the farmers and the fun
And the things behind the sun
And the people round your head
Who say everything's been said
And the movement in your brain
Sends you out into the rain

Long arm of the law

...stolen from....welll everyone....

If you saw me in a police car, what would you think I got arrested for? Answer, then if you want, post to your own journal and see how many crimes you get accused of.

(Try to post yours without looking at other comments first.)
