I rarely end up where I was intending to go, but often I end up somewhere I needed to be.

2012 Stingray – TV Series Review   (This is my most popular post since starting my blog – hands down!  It still draws hits almost every week.  The hits seem to come mostly from Central Europe.  I guess the show must be in syndication there.  //  2020 update:  While this is still my all-time, most popular post, it is no longer being viewed every week – or even month.  I guess the show is no longer in syndication.)

What song shall I sing
when in need
When all I have
is the need to be free.
What can I write
what can I say
What’s there to do
but kneel down and pray.
I’m tired, I’m sore,
I’m mad, I’m bored,
I need to relax, to relax,
to relax.
I need to be free
to be free to love
To be free to do
what I’m capable of.
I need to know
to Know for sure
What’s there in this world
That’s clean and pure.
Are there others besides me
that care at all
Is there another
near whom I’ll stand tall.
And what of the others
who aren’t like me
I wonder about those
that don’t long to be free.
I wonder about those
that don’t touch above
The stars in the sky
or a world full of love.
