    I echo that sentiment. I loved watching the faces. That is what makes us humans. WE FEEL.

    I find it very hard to translate poetry. The subtleties of the language is lost in the translation. But here it is. I fixed a google translation which did not make sense, but it still helped.

    It has been a few minutes since you left. Shadows of you still linger here and there, on the wooden floors. I open the radio, and it is you, being interviewed. You say: Yes, I love him. I open the television, and it is you again. You are shown between scenes of massacres in Iraq and news of the Canadian economy.

    When I was on earth
    A subtenant
    Of a kilo of future
    Incomplete gentlemen in jackets
    Invited me to a huge disappointment

    Now I do not cry anymore
    I collect lives
    For D-Day
    And in my heart bunker
    I hit currency at your effigy

    Dont leave
    Outside the paths are flowing
    And the vows are made of dew
    Dont leave
    Outside there are silences crowded
    With buses fallen on their backs

    And conceited that they are
    With their bouquet of keys
    And jewels of panic
    They will sit you in an office
    While here, the weather is nice

    They will pierce the screen
    To offer you a career
    Where you can drown your child
    They will break the laws
    The padlocks and the bones

    Dont leave
    Outside there is an orgy of boredom
    Going to the bottom of batteries
    Dont leave
    Outside I saw a sky so hard
    That all the birds fell

    You know that I read
    Under the dresses of time
    And on the cement lines
    You, you have eyes
    That betray the fate
    You deserve love

    Now that you see
    All that does not exist
    And if you want to come
    Neptune will guide me
    Where I sowed with tears
    My weapons are in bloom

    Dont leave
    I have so many friends
    I cannot count them
    Dont leave
    I have as many friends
    As a thousand Mexico
    Dont leave

    Nah, all videos have been on "no sound" by default for a couple of days now for me.
    I just move the sound button again. Doesnt phase me.


    Anyway.....
    I am listening to this right now.

    Hi All, what I'm watching and listening to now.

    I think I've posted this before, but in case you missed it, this is Chooka Parker, a gorgeous 16 year old Ozzy country boy.

    See what happens when a young kid grows up without TV, computer or video games on a farm in outback Australia.

    Enjoy.

    Been a remarkably interesting couple of days regarding the "search for truth".

    I would be happy to share more ... except I cannot ... and *that* is what normally drives me crazy ... denied access to information.

    Isn't life strange ... a turn of the page
    Moody Blues (going from memory which is fading fast).

    Hmmm ... perhaps my memory isn't quite gone ... at least just yet ...

    Take a couple minutes for this one nuggets ... time well spent ... amazing images and sounds.

    Excellent choices Calz

    I have two Albums by the Alan Parsons Project: I Robot, and Tales of Mystery and Imagination from which 'The Raven' is taken.

    Many thanks for posting. JP

    Well, that one brought a tear to my eyes, Calz....Moody Blues "Isn't Life Strange".

    Thought I'd share another Moody Blues tune..."The Land of Make Believe"...where "heartaches can turn into joy"...

    "Oh Great Spirit, help me always to speak the truth quietly, to listen with an open mind when others speak, and to remember the peace that may be found in silence." — Cherokee Prayer

    This song came to me in a time of deep despair. Many people reached out to me then and the song reminds me of them all. I too reach out to others when I encounter them in their time of need. It is a reminder that we need to look out for one another. I have seen this kind of love here at TOT (and elsewhere...).

    Can't help it, every time I hear a Sarah Brightman song, I think of this one.
