When this shadow play comes to a close...

Father, father
Can you tell me
Where the hours go
Where time flows?
 It is written in the stars
Upon the Milky Way
That we must burn bright
Before we fade away?

Mother, mother
Can you tell me
Where the fire goes
When the flames cease?
"From the ashes to the astral plain
Where the setting sun meets the sea, Brendan."

I live by the river
Where the old gods still dream
Of inner communion
With the open sea
Through the eye of the hunter
In search of a prey
Neither beast nor human
In my philosophy

If you don't recognize me
Well, it's simply because
I've outgrown these old clothes
Time to move on
For you and I will outlive
The masks life gave us
When this shadow play comes
To a close

This ain't no gift

 That's why unicorns should only be seen or approached by virgins.

Isn't sci fi fun?

Last waltz of the night...

There is a slight mournful quality to this piece performed brilliantly on another folk instrument I wish I could play -- although I would like the smaller portable harmonium.

The air is full of  melancholy and it seems appropriate for this posting. I know I've been heavily into the music lately, maybe that's because I don't have any words to express all the tumultuous feelings I've had these past few months. Music sometimes says it better than words.

I wanted to let you know -- particularly domain2008 dot com which appears to visit my site hundreds of times a day (I will NOT click, I will NOT click) -- that I will be taking a break from this blog to turn my attention to the next Calendar season. Where I'm hoping to lose myself for a short time.

Wishing you all the best in these...uncertain times.
