Soul is a Small Bird

A   L   O   H   A  !
Bird on a Wire by Leonard Cohen on Grooveshark

" I'd rather sing one wild song

 and burst my heart with it,

 than live a thousand years

 watching my digestion

 and being afraid

 of the wet.” 

 Jack London, 
The Turtles of Tasman

"I'd rather sing
MANY wild songs
 and burst my heart with 
a surprising number
of them,

 while living
 a thousand years
 nurturing my digestion
with good food,

and showing due
 of the slippery,
and wet.” 

The Turtle Doves of Ala Moana

Agreed, no reason you can't do both.

Elephant's Child said...

No, I don't want to live a thousand years either. The many wild songs is a different issue though...

I'll go with the many wild songs!

Smile, Cloudia! You're the best!
