spent my days with a woman unkind,
smoked my stuff and drank all my wine.
made up my mind to make a new start,
going to california with an aching in my heart.
someone told me there’s a girl out there with love in her eyes and flowers in her hair.
took my chances on a big jet plane, never let them tell you that we’re all the same.
the sea was red and the sky was grey; I wondered how tomorrow could ever follow today.
the mountains and the canyons started to tremble and shake
as the children of the sun began to awake.
seems that the wrath of the gods got a punch on the nose and it started to flow;
i think i might be sinking.
throw me a line if i reach it in time
i’ll meet you up there where the path
runs straight and high.
to find a queen without a king,
they say she plays guitar and cries and sings…
la la la la
ride a white mare in the footsteps of dawn
tryin’ to find a woman who’s never, never, never been born.
standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
telling myself it’s not as hard, hard, hard as it seems.
i realized today
there is nothing in this world
that a good chat
with my 83 year old grandmother
you, use your heart
as a weapon.
and it hurts
wishing I was six years old again. reading madeline & dreaming of being in paris. actually… much hasn’t changed except, I’m twenty years older.
no, it won’t all go the way it should..
but i know the heart of life is good.
happy happiest of new years!
looking forward to everything 2012 has to offer. taking chances, moving forward, and doing more of what i love.
[cir. 2008 inside l’orangerie in paris with monet]
waiting patiently for the ‘go-ahead’ on the cannoli’s. i can hardly wait.
warmest holiday wishes to you & yours.
