ride my motorcyle

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) writer & political activist

cards to write, projects to finish, cookies to bake....oh my no time to blog.  but lots of time to dream!

for the country and particularly for the community of newtown, connecticut,  we have had a tragic lead-in to the holidays - so many shattered dreams.

thoughts of comfort, solace and healing to all those touched by the horrific violence and rage that visited sandy hook elementary school.   may each of us add a special prayer to the end of violence which rides through the world this holiday season.

It is a somber Christmas, isn't it?

I've dreamed of riding a motorcycle! Love this image and the verse. May all our dreams be for life and peace.

Arlo Guthrie, Bobbi Gentry & Johnny Cash...hoooweee! I loved that!

Arlo is the best story teller, is he not?
