I got your wave right here...


TUNESMITH TUESDAY - "Second Guessing" by Jonny Lang

"Second Guessing"

Second guessin' first impressions
There you go again
Rushing off in all directions
Since I don't know when
All day long you're building walls
You're building walls all day
Putting ceilings on your feelings
When they should fly away

Don't you think it's time you quit it
Don't you think it's time you admit it
Your heart is more worthy of trust
Than the thoughts in your mind that sit there gathering dust

Everything you're looking for
You'll know when it's real
You'll know when you've found it
By the way you feel

Writing down your deepest emotions
With your pen in hand
Your piece of paper flew out the window
You watched it try and land
You felt bad as it flew out of sight
A part of your heart alone in the night
All of a sudden you didn't mind it
When you pictured that lonely stranger that would find it

Everything you're looking for
You'll know when it's real
You'll know when you've found it
By the way you feel

It never ceases to amaze me how many people don't understand this

Happy First Day of Autumn, Little Ducks! You know what THAT means...

Stop Blocking Freedom!


IKEA job interview


Look what we have here



Life isn't about keeping score.
  It's not about how many friends you have
    Or how accepted you are.
Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you're alone.
It isn't about who you're dating, who you used to date, 
   How many people you've dated,
      Or if you haven't been with anyone at all.
It isn't about who you have kissed,
    It's not about sex.
It isn't about who your family is or how much money they have
   Or what kind of car you drive.
      Or where you are sent to school.
It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are.
   Or what clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, 
      Or what kind
          Of music you listen to.
It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown
   Or if your skin is too light or too dark.
Not about what grades you get, 
  How smart you are, 
    How smart everybody else thinks you are, 
      Or how smart standardized tests say you are.
It's not about what clubs you're in 
   Or how good you are at  "your" sport.
It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of  paper 
   And seeing who will "accept the written you."

              LIFE JUST ISN'T.

But, life is about who you love and who you hurt.
   It's about who you make happy or unhappy purposefully.
      It's about keeping or betraying trust.
         It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon.
It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.
   About starting rumors and contributing to petty gossip.
      It's about what judgments you pass and why.  
         And who your judgments are spread to.
It's about who you've ignored with full control and intention.
    It's about jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
It's about carrying inner hate and love, 
   Letting it grow,
      And spreading it.
But most of all, it's about using your life to touch 
    Or poison
      Other people's hearts 
         In such a way that could have never occurred alone.
Only you choose the way those hearts are affected

And those choices are what life's all about.
