I fly a starship across the universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I'll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain and I'll be back again and again and again
And again and again and again


Serenity

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't coming back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me

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/
