5.19.06, Away from Blog for Two Days

Howdy faithful readers: In honor of the recent good news I'm off to the San Juan Islands for the next two days. And by choice I'm going to cut myself off from all electronic communication. So here is my blessing of silence. Thanks again to everyone for the kind thoughts and messages (also due to some crazy spamming problem I've had to adjust the comments section so that you have to type in a key word to post, just to make sure no computer-generated msgs get posted, but otherwise it should still work smoothly.)

Love from the islands.

Mr. Jones, who feels about a 7 on the Franky Scale, but I'll push towards 10 while I'm gone.

mr. jones mr. jones wooohooo!!

i've been such a loser when it comes to commenting on THE blog. so sorry spot. i'm probably wandering around cleaning and saving socks, yet always thinking of you. have a great time in the isles. so on that note..."OP" poems/words.


"...Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Believe in me
Help me believe in anything
I want to be someone who believes
Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
Stare at the beautiful women
"She's looking at you. Ah, no, no, she's looking at me."
Smiling in the bright lights
Coming through in stereo
When everybody loves you, you can never be lonely"

counting crows

so mr. jones, today i'm thinking of frankly and you, spot, and that magical time when we were all together in zion listening to "mr. jones" in the avenues in frankly's project house.

the best times ever....they were my FAVORITE!

i love you,

Well, off to look at various photos and watch a video.

Dear Scott:
One of my favorite songs from one of my favorite plays and ballets. I'm thinking our sister danced in it before.

Song: The Impossible Dream Lyrics
Lyrics by Joe Darion

In this song, Quixote explains his quest and the reasons behind it ... in doing so,
he captures the essence of the play and its philosophical underpinnings.
(For me, it is absolutely magical.)

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 lie will lie 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 star ...

Love you always,

And you have more courage in one of your little fingers than most people strive for and struggle with their whole lives, and over much lesser battles.
