dream a little dream of me

Worse than not realizing the dreams of your youth, would be to have been young and never dreamed at all.

Jean Genet (19 December 1910 - 1986) poet, playwright, activist

yesterday was proof positive of the veracity of o'casey claim that life is a lament in one ear, maybe, but always a song in the other. yesterday's lament - hearing the news that the senate did not pass the DREAM act; this (temporary*) set back was offset by the wonderful song finding out that the news that the senate (finally) repealed DADT!

*I am ever hopeful that eventually sanity will prevail and the DREAM act will become a reality!

ella fitzgerald and louis armstrong preforming dream a little dream of me - first sung in 1931 by ozzie nelson and covered by a everyone from doris day to miss piggy!

today's photo is of the beautiful delilah von dagger. delilah, which may or may not be her "real name" is part of the cleveland burlesque company. I met delilah yesterday while she was playing the role of an incredibly sexy santa at lakewood's last minute market.

ho ho ho!!!

That's quite a tattoo...I wonder what happens to these types of tattoos when they get older. Saggy spider webs?
I've always dreamed of having a tattoo...of course not one so large...but was too chicken to get one. Sometimes...for me...fear drives away some of the things I do dream of.

Yes, it's good to end the year on a positive note - it would be nice to get a week of feeling a little less constricted as a result of the repeal. It gives one hope that things can change, we can become a little more civilized.
