He's a poet he's a picker he's a prophet he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction partly truth and partly fiction
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home

Livin' on the road, my friend
Was gonna keep you free and clean
And now you wear your skin like iron
And your breath as hard as kerosene

Weren't you mama's only boy
But her favorite one, it seems
She began to cry when you said, "Goodbye"
Sank into your dreams




Counted the Stars

Counted the stars on the 4th of July
Wishing we were rockets bursting in the sky
Talking about redemption and leaving things behind
As the sun sinks west of the Mendocino county line

OLD SCHOOL MAN: Gran Torino and the 31 Old School Man Habits of Walt Kowalski

My Friend and one of our Fellow Lexicans had this link at Facebook this morning.
Got some of those things I remember from Dad, Uncles, Great Uncles and those Dads of my childhood friends.
Perhaps we need a return to these again?
I thought it might be interesting to all of you out there, in the 'sphere.
I found it to be so.
The link is right here:  http://www.deathvalleymag.com/2010/04/20/gran-torino-and-the-31-old-school-man-habits-of-walt-kowalski/#more-3675
I am going to have to book mark the Death Valley Magazine for further reference.
BTW, Kanani is over on the blogroll, http://kitchendispatch.blogspot.com/
