as she reached up, she pleaded,

“please, please lift me up to where you are, a place so far, far, far away from here”


I ended up writing my own words to go with this but while I was searching online for something that seemed to fit with “lift me up” I found…Moby!!

and these lyrics at LyricWikia

Plain talking (plain talking)
Take us so far (take us so far)
Broken down cars (broken down cars)
Like strung-out old stars (strung-out old stars)
Plain talking (plain talking)
Served us so well (served us so well)
We traveled through hell (traveled through hell)
Oh how we fell (Oh how we fell)

Lift me up, lift me up, higher now, ama
Lift me up, lift me up, higher now, ama
Lift me up, lift me up, higher now, ama
Lift me up, lift me up, higher now, ama

Plain talking (plain talking)
Making us bold (making us bold)
So strong out and cold (so strong out and cold) (I listened to this song on YouTube and thought it sound like strung out not strong out)
I’m feeling so old (feeling so old)
Plain talking (plain talking)
Has ruined us now (has ruined us now)
You never know how (you never know how)
Sweeter than tough (sweeter than tough) (and tough sounded to me like thou)

you’ll find the music and lyrics to Moby’s song HERE on YouTube

the highway…

no longer beckons, no longer pleads “come, come let us go somewhere together”

she sits and stares at the ribbon of tar disappearing into the distance

perhaps she has arrived at her destination

a journey of a thousand miles…

begins with a single step

from the quote 千里之行,始於足下 (zh), by the Chinese philosopher Laozi (c 604 bc – c 531 bc) in the Tao Te Ching, chapter 64

temperature and humidity are a rising…

and me I’ve got

“the summertime blues”


the beach is sounding like a really good idea about now, here on the gulf coast of Florida…however, we have to be aware of the flesh eating bacterium, Vibrio vulnificus that lives in our coastal salt water.  If you click on this to read about the bacterium, be aware that the article contains an extremely graphic photo of what this bacterium can do to human flesh

so as inviting as it sounds I won’t be going to the beach, or walking in the surf with Baron…how sad is that 😦
