Rhiannon
by Fleetwood Mac

Rhiannon rings like a bell through the night
And wouldn't you love to love her?
Takes to the sky like a bird in flight and
Who will be her lover?

All your life you've never seen
A woman taken by the wind.
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?

She is like a cat in the dark,
And then she is the darkness.
She rules her life like a fine skylark
And when the sky is starless.

All your life you've never seen
A woman taken by the wind.
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

Rhiannon, Rhiannon, Rhiannon, Rhiannon.

She rings like a bell through the night
And wouldn't you love to love her?
She rules her life like a bird in flight and
Who will be her lover?

All your life you've never seen
A woman taken by the wind.
Would you stay if she promised you heaven?
Will you ever win?
Will you ever win?

Rhiannon, Rhiannon, Rhiannon, Rhiannon.

Taken by, taken by the sky.
Taken by, taken by the sky.
Taken by, taken by the sky.
Taken by, taken by the sky.

Dreams unwind, love's a state of mind.
Dreams unwind, love's a state of mind.
Dreams unwind, love's a state of mind.
Dreams unwind, love's a state of mind.

The music world is telling me contradictory things. :(

Take this, for example:

Exhibit A
Playin' with the queen of hearts, knowin' it ain't really smart...
- Juice Newton, "Queen of Hearts"

Exhibit B
Don't you draw the queen of diamonds, boy, she'll beat you if she's able; you know the queen of hearts is always your best bet.
- the Eagles, "Desperado"

What am I to do?

Lately, when I start to drive, I consistently have the urge to just keep driving... Huh.

*****

Tonight, while listening to Leah, I couldn't decide whether I was more inclined towards "Trigger Happy" or "Let Me Down Easy." Now that right there is one special kind of mood.

Youths?! Gasp! We can't have those around! They might try to teach us to be free with their innocence and trusting or something. Blech!

Be fair with others, but then keep after them until they're fair with you.

Today's fortune cookie: Any doubts you may have will disappear early this month.

Well... Cool! :)

I believe in the brotherhood of man and the uniqueness of the individual. But if you ask me to prove what I believe, I can't. You know them to be true but you could spend a whole lifetime without being able to prove them. The mind can proceed only so far upon what it knows and can prove. There comes a point where the mind takes a higher plane of knowledge, but can never prove how it got there. All great discoveries have involved such a leap.
- Albert Einstein

Didn't someone recently say something about not giving Einstein authority on matters other than physics? Oh well.

And on a totally unrelated note... NERTZ!

You know that scene at the very beginning of The Matrix where Trinity has to tell herself quite firmly to get up?

That's basically what I have to do every morning.
Standing Outside the Fire
by Garth Brooks

We call them cool
Those hearts that have no scars to show
The ones that never do let go
And risk the tables being turned

We call them fools
Who have to dance within the flame
Who chance the sorrow and the shame
That always comes with getting burned

But you've got to be tough when consumed by desire
'Cause it's not enough just to stand outside the fire

We call them strong
Those who can face this world alone
Who seem to get by on their own
Those who will never take the fall

We call them weak
Who are unable to resist
The slightest chance love might exist
And for that forsake it all

They're so hell-bent on giving, walking a wire
Convinced it's not living if you stand outside the fire

Standing outside the fire
Standing outside the fire
Life is not tried, it is merely survived
If you're standing outside the fire

There's this love that is burning
Deep in my soul
Constantly yearning to get out of control
Wanting to fly higher and higher
I can't abide
Standing outside the fire

Standing outside the fire
Standing outside the fire
Life is not tried, it is merely survived
If you're standing outside the fire
