Look Like Friends

A  L  O  H  A !
Beautiful People by Melanie Safka on Grooveshark

" It suddenly struck me
 that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, 
was the Earth.
 I put up my thumb 
and shut one eye, 
and my thumb blotted out
 the planet Earth. 
I didn't feel like a giant. 
I felt very, very small. "

Neil Armstrong 


" To the degree 
that you shed your attachment
to making an impact,
you will make the exact impact
that matters most. 
Give yourself
without any expectations. "

Rob Brezsny


" Eternity 
is in love
 with the productions
 of time."

William Blake

That song by Melanie
brought back a lot of emotion.
It surprised me how much.

Back then mimeographed flyers
were the only internet we knew,
and buttons you wore
said things like
"Make Love Not War"
and "Impeach Nixon."

The adult world
seemed rather harsh,
always trying
to teach us one
cold lesson or another.

But we were looking
for beautiful people,
whose faces were not angry
the minute they saw us.

We were looking for
a beautiful, meaningful
way to live.

I write my posts
every day,
sending them out,
like a rose petal
down on a super highway-
But a miracle happens:

Beautiful people find ME!

That's you.
That is us.
And we are 

Coo coo kachoo!

This really touches me.

Every Day.

Thank YOU.
