You look at where you’re going and where you are and it never makes sense, but then you look back at where you’ve been and a pattern seems to emerge.
   —    Robert M. Pirsig
From:  “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
[A “Fractal” is a curve or geometric figure, each part of which has the same statistical character as the whole.  A “Mandelbrot Set” is description of a type of fractal.  Somehow, this quote strikes me as a viewing of a personal relationship as a Mandelbrot set which appears to repeat itself over and over again, no matter the scale at which it is viewed.  Like the love I feel waking up each morning and saying “Good Morning” to my wife.  —    KMAB]

Do You Believe In Magic

Favorite Line(s):
If you believe in magic,
Come along with me
We’ll dance until morning
‘Til there’s just you and me
And maybe,
If the music is right
I’ll meet you tomorrow,
Sort of late at night
And we’ll go dancing,
Baby, then you’ll see
How the magic’s in the music
And the music’s in me

It’s A Good Night For Singing

Favorite Line(s):
I wonder
Where are all the pleasant souls
Tonight
Indecision made them stay home
And wait for daylight
Spherical witness,
Help me in my flight
Comment(s):
Now, I’ve never claimed to be much of a vocal talent (singer).  My range tends more to the roar than to the octave.  I have, on more than one occasion, had the opportunity to roar along with this particular song.  But then, that’s what NCO’s do when stationed in Germany, playing cards, smoking cigarettes, talking trash, drinking beer and listening to country music.  We build fading memories…
Thanks for the memories Jerry Jeff Walker (March 16, 1942  –  October 23, 2020).  You’ll be missed.  I think it’s time to go hoist a shot of whiskey…

I Believe

Favorite Line(s):
I believe above the storm
The smallest prayer
Will still be heard
I believe that someone in
The great somewhere
Hears every word
Every time I hear
A newborn baby cry
Or touch a leaf
Or see the sky
Then I know
Why I believe

Retirement has many advantages.  It becomes a time to remake one’s soul, to interiorize, to mediate and begin a cram course for the final exam.

Just My Imagination

Favorite Line(s):
Soon
Soon we’ll be married..
And raise a family.
Have a cozy,
Little home
Out in the country
With two children,
Maybe three.
I tell you, I
Can visualize it all.
This couldn’t
Be a dream
For too real
It all seems.
