Be Here Now

I love this song…   “Be Here Now”, by Ray LaMontagne.  I heard it (again) recently, and when another blogger reminded me of an old poem of mine, Empty Spaces, I realized I never added a song to that one as I often do.  This song seemed perfect, so I added it there.  and also felt like it was very fitting for this grey, winter day as I am heading back out into the cold…
A reminder to just be.

“Don’t let your mind get weary and confused..
your will be still; don’t try.
Don’t let your heart get heavy, child;
inside you there’s a strength that lies.

Don’t let your soul get lonely, child..
it’s only time; it will go by.
Don’t look for love in faces, places —
it’s in you; that’s where you’ll find kindness.

Be here.. be here now.. be here now..
be.. be here now.. be here now…

Don’t lose your faith in me,
and I will try not to lose faith in you.
Don’t put your trust in walls,
’cause walls will only crush you when they fall.

Be…be here now… be here now.
Be…be here now…be here now.

Be Here Now, by Ray LaMontagne

The Wall…

Today, I didn’t write a poem, or anything else for that matter (other than 5000 emails)…  but, have been listening to some favorite tunes while working…  This is one of my all time fav’s… has been for a very long time, and probably always will be.  So, I thought I’d share it here in it’s entirety – and without one of my personal poems cluttering it up…

The Wall

“I’m woven in a fantasy
I can’t believe the things I see
The path that I have chosen now
has led me to a wall
And with each passing day
I feel a little more like something dear was lost
It rises now before me
a dark and silent barrier between
All I am
and all that I would ever want be
It’s just a travesty
marking off the boundaries my spirit
would erase

New Blog… Same Sam…

I have been thinking of moving my blog for a while now…  for a few very good reasons that probably won’t mean much to anyone else.  Mostly, I felt like branching out a little…  and felt like it was time for a change.    I posted links to here from my old blog – so hopefully folks who still want to find me, will find me.  I’ve “met” a lot of very talented and cool people while blogging and I have no intentions of ditching any of you…

Now…  if you were hoping to never have to deal with me again – well, here’s your big chance… ;)

This is one of my new favorite songs…  to kick off my new blog…  =)
