#007 Days -



Days Like These by Asia

The sun was shining
The sky was crying
It just tore apart
And down came the rain

And I was soaking
Yeah I was freezing
But I was feeling
No kind of pain

Come a fireball
I held it in my hand
You see before you
A man who's known greatness

I had a vision
A revelation
I took a look inside of me
And I am a sensation

Days like these I
feel like I can
change the world
{repeat}

It's either easy
Or it's impossible
And if you ain't got it
You ain't never gonna get it

But once you find it
You gotta grab it
Reach down your own throat
And yank it to the surface

That may be brutal
May be gory
But whatever else it is
It's my story

And I believe it
Yeah, I can see it
I sing it out, shout it out
Gimme death or glory

{chorus}

Days like these,
days like these
I think I'll move a
mountain or two
Days like these,
days like these
Anything you want
you know I'll get it
for you

The sun was shining
I was crying
I saw a thousand people
Singing in the rain

And I was thinking
About the Indians
And how they say true wisdom
Only comes from pain

Come a rumbling
Humbling feeling
Like things will never
Ever be the same

But what doesn't kill you
Only makes you stronger
Today I'm strong enough
And anyway, I love the rain

{chorus}

085. She


She snuck up on me while I was sleeping.

 

I had left the front door open to help circulate the hot summer air that filled my apartment, then I lay down on the couch for a nap. As I lay there resting, waiting for Connie to show up, and who could say how long that would take, I drifted off to sleep. It was a fitful rest, though, because of a large pesky fly that kept landing on my nose, forehead, or cheek, then scurrying about over my face. I did dose off though, and let my automatic reflexes deal with the fly by occasionally swatting at it without opening my eyes or becoming fully conscious.

 

I do not remember how long I slept, or have any idea of how many times I may have swatted at that fly, or flies, as I slept, but there was something odd about that last swat attempt that woke me up. I had felt something soft impact on the back of my hand and it did not feel like a fly.

I opened my eyes and looked at the back of my left hand but could not see anything unusual there, and it did not hurt in the least. It was sure that I had felt something, something soft, but I knew I had not hit my face or the pillow under my head. My swat had been aimed for just above my nose and forehead area, where the best chance of hitting an annoying fly would be. Okay, I had not hit the fly or my pillow, then what had I hit?

I was still pondering the back of my hand when I heard a moan coming from the floor just a bit forward of where my head was resting on the couch. I tilted my head and was surprised to see Connie just getting to a sitting position on the floor. She was holding a cold bottle of Pepsi in each hand (I used to prefer Pepsi, now I prefer Diet Mug Root Beer), and finding it difficult to get to her feet, so I quickly got off the couch to help her up, still not quite sure how she had gotten there on the floor in the first place.

Naturally, I asked what she was doing on the floor. It turns out that I had not hit a fly, but I sure had walloped Connie. As she tried to sneak a kiss, Connie must have breathed out just as she near my lips, and as I slept, my automatic defense system must have mistaken her breath on my cheek as a fly buzzing my face.

For several years after, Connie teased me about getting backhanded for trying to give me a kiss. For some reason, she never did sneak up on me again.

 

 

This story takes place several years before Connie and I broke up back in the late 1990s. If I had to guess when this story takes place, I would say about 1991.

24 - Family

The family.  We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.  ~Erma Bombeck

or

Families are like fudge - mostly sweet with a few nuts.  ~Author Unknown

55 - Spirit

Spirit - John Denver



His spirit joined and so was formed
Ten thousand years ago
Between the swan and Hercules
Where even dark clouds glow

To live with grace, to ride the swell
To yet be strong of will
To love the wind, to learn it's song
And empty space to fill

Apollo taught me to rhyme
Orpheus taught me to play
Andromeda cast down her sign
And vega lights my way

Smoke rings in a galaxy
An endless flight through time
Lyra gave her harp to him
And left him free to climb

A winter's journey from the moon
To reach the summer sun
To rise again, to sing for you
A song that's yet unsung

Apollo taught me to rhyme
Orpheus taught me to play
Andromeda cast down her sign
And vega lights my way

His spirit joined and so was formed
Ten thousand years ago
Between the swan and Hercules
Where even dark clouds glow

To live with grace, to ride the swell
To yet be strong of will
To love the wind, to learn her song
And empty space to fill

Words and Music by John Denver and Joe Henry
