a creature void of form

The menagerie of life rolls by

Live , Lakeland, FL 4/1876


If you see her, say hello
She might be in North Saigon
She left here in a hurry
I don't know what she was on
You might say that I'm in disarray
And for me time's standing still
Oh, I've never gotten over her
I don't think I ever will

A bright light from me, I saw
A shattering of souls
Just one of them reckless situations
Which nobody controls
Well the menagerie of life rolls by
Right before my eyes
And we'll do the best we can
Which should come at no surprise

If you're makin' love to her
Watch it from the rear
You never know when I'll be back
Or liable to appear
Oh it's as natural to dream of peace
As it is for rules to break
But right now I got not much to lose
So you better stay awake

Sundown, silver moon
Hitting on the date (days?)
My head can't understand no more
What my heart don't tolerate
But I know she'll be back some day
Of that there is no doubt
And when that moment comes, Lord
Give me the strength to keep her out.

How does it feel ?

The shot I hurled from my sling, personally monogrammed

I've been lax with keeping my blog updated in any coherent and personal way.  Too distracted to post anything but Dylan videos.  It's the one constant I have in my life, or should I say, the one most pleasant and unifying constant in my personal little world. I think I killed Goliath, but can't be sure, and then, if I did indeed kill Goliath, there's always his ghost to deal with.  Leo

Excerpt from 1st Samuel 17 KJV Read the entire 17th chapter here
 48 And it came to pass, when the Philistine arose, and came, and drew nigh to meet David, that David hastened, and ran toward the army to meet the Philistine.
49 And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sunk into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth.

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and with a stone, and smote the Philistine, and slew him; but there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran, and stood upon the Philistine, and took his sword, and drew it out of the sheath thereof, and slew him, and cut off his head therewith. And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled.
