2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate Old Rockers and Old Hippies.  HE is up the Tallebudgera Valley playing with Digger Revell, Johnny Carr and Dave Ovenden.  THEY are playing in an indoor horse arena with sawdust on the floor and SHE  is again at home – waiting and getting used to it again.


Once I spoke the language of the flowers.
Once I understood each word the caterpillar said.
Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings and shared a conversation with the housefly in my bed.
Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets and joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow.
Once I spoke the language of the flowers…
How did it go?
How did it go?

I embrace emerging experience. I participate in discovery. I am a butterfly. I am not a butterfly collector. I want the experience of the butterfly.

Asthma doesn’t seem to bother me any more unless I’m around cigars or dogs. The thing that would bother me most would be a dog smoking a cigar.

O father, what a hell of witchcraft lies
In the small orb of one particular tear.

I generally avoid temptation unless I can’t resist it.

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate the completion of this birthday on a dark and stormy night with the almost full moon. The Cottage Doors are closed. There is a Palmer spider out the back wanting to come in out of the cold and wind. The Star Wagon ain’t going no place till the driveway dries out a little. The Girls are making Phone calls to say Happy Birthday and Plan visits in May. They consider the pulse of the life lived on The Hill and the passing of the years. Some birthdays are MELLOW.

A true man does not need to romance a different girl every night, a true man romances the same girl for the rest of her life.

Someday I would like to
stand on the moon, look
down through a quarter of a
million miles of space and
say, “There certainly is a
beautiful earth out tonight.”
– Lt. Col. William H. Rankin, American author

An autumn night… don’t think your life, didn’t matter.

Better to sit all night than to go to bed with a dragon.

I pray the gentle hands may guide my feet; I ask for kind commands from
voices sweet; At night a stable warm with scented hay, where, safe from
every harm, I’ll sleep till day.

“If you play with the vultures at night, you can’t soar with the eagles at dawn.”

I love thee – I love thee,

‘Tis all that I can say

It is my vision in the night,

My dreaming in the day.

~Thomas Hood
