Pay It Forward

Partly Cloudy - Hi 75 Lo 56 for Baghdad, Iraq
Partly Sunny - Hi 72 Lo 53 for Northern KY, USA

Song of the week: Half Acre,

This song is so haunting. The melody and lyrics linger in my mind the way I savor and delight in the taste of chocolate on my tongue. I always want more...


I just don't have it in me to blog right now... This must come in phases as some of my regular haunts have also been infrequent in their writing. For me the past 4 weeks or so have been a real struggle.

Let me say this... be nice... be nice to each other. Being polite and smiling and letting folks merge and waving to someone that has a bumper sticker that says they have a loved one in harms way goes a long way... be nice... slow down... be nice. Someone looks like they are in a hurry and late? Let them get in line ahead of you. Work to not be impatient with someone... we have no idea what is going on in their life... There is so much cruelty in the world and we have taken on this awful mentality of "everyone else does it." Bull crap.

The video I wanted to play was not available to be embedded (link is underneath the Sunday Song video--- this includes the Liberty Mutual commercial). However, the video I did embed is quite charming. Let yourself go... play in the revolving doors and make up skits in the car... be nice.

And now... few photos we took at Kentucky Down Under....

Half Acre

I am holding half an acre
Torn from the map of Michigan
And folded in this scrap of paper
Is the land I grew in

Think of every town you've lived in
Every room you lay your head
And what is it that you remember

Do you carry every sadness with you
Every hour your heart was broken
Every night the fear and darkness
Lay down with you

A man is walking on the highway
A woman stares out at the sea
And light is only now just breaking

So we carry every sadness with us
Every hour our hearts were broken
Every night the fear and darkness
Lay down with us

But I am holding half an acre
Torn from the map of Michigan
I am carrying this scrap of paper

That can crack the darkest sky wide open
Every burden taken from me
Every night my heart unfolding
My home

Have a great week everyone!

P.S. The Answer to yesterday's trivia question = The Foundations.

How can something so simple make me cry SO HARD?

I come here for peace. I always find it. Sometimes I find so much more.

Thank you. AGAIN.
