I don't want to see you waiting,
I've already gone too far away,
I still can't keep the day from ending,
No more messed up reasons for me to stay...





“Good morning, Rosebud!”



The difference between the right word and the almost right word is the difference between lightning and a lightning bug.
~Mark Twain




The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.
~Doug Larson



O CAPTAIN! my Captain, our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up--for you the flag is flung--for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths--for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
The arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You've fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor'd safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
Exult O shores and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen Cold and Dead.

~Walt Whitman



I hear the bells
Down in the canyons
It’s snowing New York
Some blue December
I’m going to the moon
About you going
I’m calling you throughout the world
And I can hear the bells are ringing
Joyful and triumphant
And I can hear the bells are ringing
Joyful and triumphant, and…
I hear the bells
They are like emeralds and
Glints in the night
Commas and ampersands
Your moony face--so inaccessible,
Your inner mind--so inexpressible;
And I can hear the bells are ringing
And I can hear the bells are ringing
Joyful and triumphant, and…
