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 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 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…

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…

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.

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…Continue

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…

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.…
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.…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

Somewhere between earth and heaven
The C-17 flies,
Heading westward homeward
Through clean, clear, safe blue skies
At the back of the airplane
Draped in his country’s flag
They’re bringing Buddy home.
Somewhere between tears and…Continue

I feel a growing sense that many things are not within my control. It makes me tense And my stomach knotted. This must be where my physical energy is.

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.

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…Continue

BALLAD OF SMITH AND GABRIEL JIMMYBOY, THE

And the blame went round and round
And they laid it all on Gabriel…

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 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…Continue
