So Far Away”
“this is my life
its not what it was before
all these feelings i’ve shared
and these are my dreams
that i’d never lived before
somebody shake me
i must be sleeping
now that we’re here,
it’s so far away
all the struggle we thought was in vain
all in the mistakes,
one life contained
they all finally start to go away
now that we’re here its so far away
and i feel like i can face the day i can forgive
and i’m not ashambed to be the person that i am today
these are my words
that i’ve never said before
i think i’m doing okay
and this is the smile
that i’ve never shown before
somebody shake me cuz i
i must be sleeping
I think these lyrics sort of sum up where I am today, my 43rd birthday. A hell of a long way from where I was at 42, that’s for sure! Man, that seems so long ago and yet just yesterday.
As the song says ” … I think I’m doing okay …”
(Special thanks go to the Universe, Twinnie, Shonna, Rixie, Wayne Dyer and H. Each of you has helped me on this road to being “okay”)
Yes, Goddaughter ‘O Love, you may officially be jealous of me now. I got a TIVO for my birthday. I’m sure it will come in handy when The Sopranos, Six Feet Under and Sex and the City return.
And just this morning I got sweet cards from H, kittens and de dog, so it’s been a lovely start to the day already.
Oh yea, I decided to become a wild woman at my advanced age. So, don’t be surprised if I start doing all kinds of things – you have been warned!
And now, words from Eddie:
Anyway, I don?t know that Pliny did postcards, but he wrote from Vesuvius; he was at Mt. Vesuvius when it erupted, on the West coast of Italy, and he was there. ?Dear Father, I am here at Vesuvius, it is erupting as I speak. Fucking hell!!! Get me out of here!! The top?s come off the mountain! There?s stuff everywhere! (hysterical screaming) Send ships and big ships. Send fucking dogs? Get on to Mr. Dog, tell them to send people? Apart from that, everything?s gorgeous. Got a great tan, even though we all have it ?cause we?re in Italy. Love and kisses, Pliny the Younger. P.S.: Nothing.? Yeah?
IF OCTOBER 22 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY . . . life seems to single you out and you may sometimes ask, why is this happening to me? The gods will give you a chance to prove your skills. You have leadership qualities and know how to phrase your words. This year should see you getting ahead and surprising some around you. There’s love and money early next year.
