this song...this video...

i don't like when i can't embed a video, although i suppose it adds a certain bit of excitement and unknown for the reader...still, it would be much prettier if the video was just right here (you know, instead of this link)

this song was forwarded to me by a good friend, at an appropriate time. a time when, skies were grey and moisture in the air fell from the sky in white fluffy pieces. When the song first came to me, i thought it hauntingly beautiful, months later, i still do.

a few favorite lines, because, well, i always have them...

"If the tiger shall protect her young then tell me how did you slip by
All my instincts have failed me for once
I must have somehow slept the whole night"

"If you have to take sides with the animals
Won't you do it with one who is kind"

"Throw yourself in the midst of danger but keep one eye open at night"

i know i say this frequently, but i promise i will write more, i mean, really, how could i be so silent when there is oh, so much going on in the world around me?!?!!

a list of things that have keep me busy with the passing clock ticks:

Thrive: The Vegan Nutrition Guide
No Impact Man Documentary (my former boss is in it - I remember briefing him for this meeting, ah the days of a Congressional staffer)
Game Change

"I don't mean to close the door
But for the record my heart is sore
You blew through me like bullet holes
Left stains on my sheets and stains
On my soul
You left me broke down beggin for change..."
