from here to there and back again...maybe

Sometimes a person has to go a very long distance out of his way to come back a short distance correctly.
Edward Albee 
 ....I think I am still walking on my way out. But then....

If we are always arriving and departing, it is also true that we are eternally anchored. One's destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.
Henry Miller

...which makes a whole bunch of sense, but then Miller also said...

Why do we not give in all directions? Is it fear of losing ourselves? Until we do lose ourselves there is no hope of finding ourselves.

So Miller somehow is saying the same thing as Albee... maybe we should all  just get lost...of which I can proudly say I am an aficionado of the experience.. .. but at the same time I think it is not where we are, or where we have been or what we come back to.... or where it is we wish to be,  but who we travel with.....

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

...... and sometimes I feel like someone drove away while I was inside the station getting coffee and cigarettes.

Trust your friends, love your Lovely....... just make sure you keep the keys in your pocket.

For a Packer fan, you sure do know what you're talking about. Now, really impress us and improve their running game.

I agree with Randall on this, and that is shocking since I seldom even know what Randall is talking about. (the frenchie title says it all). Anyway, don't take his guff about the Packers. That from the Contrarian.

Sherry... I hate to say the Lad is correct. Rodgers is one of the best Pig-slingers in the biz and the line is playing ok.... but when all you gotz is a pack of plebeian ponies it's easy to tee off on the QB. We coulda had Atlanta iffen anyone could have run further than the bathroom....

Very nice. Sadly, I had all but forgotten about E.E. Cummings since high's kind of what happens when you matriculate to an engineering school.

No the Pack don't have much of a running game, but I still think they'll give my Patriots a run for their money. Next to Monday's Jets match up, I am looking forward to this one the most.

I've never followed futball but I'm very fond of ee cummings. I also always remember to carry my own keys.
