You don't know me
You don't like me
You say you care less how I feel
How many of you would sit and judge me
Ever walked the Streets of Bakersfield...............
From the Kern County Desert....
Observations....
Commentary....
Small essays and other things that come to mind or suit me at the time.
All are welcome here, to my world, such that it is.
A walking contradiction, partly truth, mostly fiction,
taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home......The Pilgrim Chapter 33
I have become..........Comfortably Numb...
He lives in the Islands and fishes the pilings and drinks his Green Label each day..........

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

THINGS I DIDN'T LEARN IN HEBREW SCHOOL

From Peter Bromberg at G Plus.
meh................................................

1. The High Holidays have absolutely nothing to do with marijuana.
2. Where there's smoke, there may be salmon.
3. No meal is complete without leftovers.
4. According to Jewish dietary law, pork and shellfish
    may be eaten only in Chinese restaurants.
5. A shmata is a dress that your husband's ex is wearing.
6. You need ten men for a minyan, but only four
    in polyester pants and white shoes for pinochle.
7. One mitzvah can change the world; two will just make you tired.
8. After the destruction of the Second temple, God created Nordstroms.
9. Anything worth saying is worth repeating a thousand times.
10. Never take a front row seat at a Bris.
11. Next year in Jerusalem.
     The year after that, how about a nice cruise?
12. Never leave a restaurant empty handed.
13. Spring ahead; fall back - winters in Boca.
14. WASP's leave and never say good-bye;
       Jews say good-bye and never leave.
15. Always whisper the names of diseases.
16. If it tastes good, it's probably not kosher.
17. The important Jewish holidays are the ones
      on which alternate side of the street parking is suspended.
18. Without Jewish mothers, who would need therapy?
19. If you have to ask the price, you can't afford it.
      But if you can afford it, make sure to tell everybody what you paid.
20. Laugh now, but one day you'll be driving a Lexus
       and eating dinner at 4:00 PM in Florida .
