I'm Glad That I'm Not Young Anymore

I'M GLAD I'M NOT YOUNG ANYMORE

From "Gigi" (1958)

(Lyrics : Alan Jay Lerner / Music : Frederick Loewe)

Poor boy! Poor boy!

Down-hearted and depressed and in a spin

Poor boy! Poor boy!

Oh, youth can really do a fellow in!

How lovely to sit here in the shade

With none of the woes of man and maid

I'm glad I'm not young anymore

The rivals that don't exist at all

The feeling you're only two feet tall

I'm glad that I'm not young…

The Mark of the Beast is not 666, But WWW.

“The Earth is being eaten by machines, .. not my problem. God is dead or so they said; I read it in an interview, .. if that is true then I say to you

just what the hell are we supposed to do? “



I was inspired at an early age to become an environmentalist by one of Jack London's books when it talked about the cutting down of Majestic Giant Sequoias for profit and then using their bases as square dance floors. I was so moved by that horror that… Continue

A Wandrin' Star From Paint Your Wagon by Lerner & Lowe

i was born under a wandrin' star

I was born under a wandrin' star

Wheels are made for rolling, mules are made to pack

I've never seen a sight that didn't look better looking back

I was born under a wandrin' star

Life can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry

Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry

Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to

Which with any luck will never come true

I was born under a…

L'ENVOI by Robert W Service

You who have lived in the Land,

You who have trusted the trail;

You who are strong to withstand,

You who are swift to assail;

Songs have I sung to beguile,

Vintage of desperate years

Hard as a harlot's smile,

Bitter as unshed tears.

Little of joy or…

COMFORT Robert W Service

Say! You've struck a heap of trouble—

Bust in business, lost your wife;

No one cares a cent about you,

You don't care a cent for life;

Hard luck has of hope bereft you,

Health is failing, wish you'd die—

Why, you've still the sunshine left you,

And the big, blue sky.

Sky so…

The Reckoning by Robert W Service

The Reckoning

By Robert W. Service

It’s fine to have a blow-out in a fancy restaurant,

With terrapin and canvas-back and all the wine you want;

To enjoy the flowers and music, watch the pretty women pass,

Smoke a choice cigar, and sip the wealthy water in your glass.

It’s bully in a high-toned joint to eat and drink your fill,

But it’s quite another matter when you

Pay the bill.

It’s great to go out every night on fun or pleasure…

In A Yugo

In a Yugo Lyrics

As the snow flies

At a used car lot on the edge of town

A liberal guy and a liberal gal

Buy a Yugo

And they drive with pride

Cause if there's one thing that this world needs

It's environmental friends who'll take the lead

In a Yugo

They say, "people don't you understand

Those suburbans are ruining the land"

But they'll wish they had a full size van one day

They point fingers at you and…

Nothing

Nothing

What would be left if we didn’t give a thought to what we were thinking? Not the good, the bad or the might be?



It would be like holding on to nothing, not even our thoughts — like not enough money, too much thinking or not enough love.…

Sunshine

What would it be like to be fully present, completely conscious and radiating sunshine inside and out?

In a nutshell it might be something like this . .

Everything would seem fresh, clear and simple. But there's not much going on in our head.…

GLOBAL CAMPAIGN FOR THE MESSIAH'S PEACE

GLOBAL CAMPAIGN FOR THE MESSIAH'S PEACE

Greetings Dear Ones. Wishing everyone a great day and a beautiful tomorrow. As we see our world torn apart by war, greed and selfishness, people warn us of impending prophetic Armageddon Scenarios. Remember, all is NOT lost as long as ye have faith.

My favorite Bible verses talk about being a good Samaritan, being thy brother's keeper, being imitators of the Creator and to Love Humanity as the Creator does; "like the sun upon the grass…

A Father's Lament

An Open Letter To My daughter; Sarah Christine

A Father's Lament,

Happy 27th Birthday Sarah.

I speak now to help you understand the pain in your heart because I have a great pain in mine too. Your 27th birthday was a day of great sadness for me and has been since before your your birth because your mother, Johanna, was abducted when she was 3 months pregnant with you and you have no knowledge of these events.

Sarah Christine, your father really loves and misses…

Bringing Buddy Home John McDermott

Somewhere between earth and heaven

The C-17 flies,

Heading westward homeward

Through clean, clear, safe blue skies

At the back of the airplane

Lying alone

Draped in his country’s flag

They’re bringing Buddy home.

Somewhere between tears and…

Looking Glass

We are like a looking glass. The vibration of who we are changes how we see things. As we change so does the glass and so what we see.

Survivors!

If anyone who happens to be in their sixties or over and believes they have led a dull life, think again: for you are a baby boomer! Being born between 1950 to 1955 means that your toys didn't need batteries because you were content with Tonka trucks, Play dough, Mr. Potato Head, Lincoln Logs and Tinker Toys.

We were also daredevils, we rode our bikes and roller skated down…

Chief Dan George continued page 2

Do you know what it's like to have your race belittled, and to come to learn that you are only a burden to the country? Maybe we did not have the skills to make a meaningful contribution, but nobody would wait for us. We were shoved aside, because we were dumb and could not learn.

Do you know what it is like to be without pride in your race, pride in your family, pride and confidence in yourself? What is it like? You do not know. You have never tasted its bitterness.

I shall…

Chief Dan George continued page 3

I know what you must be saying, "Tell us, what do you want?" Yes, what do we want? We want first of all to be respected and to feel that we are people of worth. We want equal job opportunities for our students. We want guidance and counseling. We want to feel that we are a people of worth.

Let no one forget this: we are a people with special rights guaranteed to us by promises and treaties. We do not beg for these rights, nor do we thank you. We do not thank you because we paid for…
