this week has been hard.  I'm sick - getting better but today I am exhausted, there are some family things -  nothing major but when someone in my little family hurts, I hurt. 

and then there are The Children - I am touched by how hard they're fighting, how earnest and trusting in the's inspiring, but depressing, you know?  why should kids have to fight for their own government to hear they need government to protect them from guns and the lunatics who want to kill them.  what in hell do we pay taxes for?  what the hell do these douchebags pull paychecks for?  ONE THING - to protect us and especially our children. and boy how they fail.

so here's a little al.  I think this is his sweetest song - it touches me very deeply. for a minute it makes me a believer - that maybe I can touch the face of god too.  such is the power of music.

yeah yeah, I;m aware commenting on my iphone isn't ideal.  but you know - you'll all have to get used to "it" if you want a regular contributor because - honestly - I don't have the time to reread or edit.  I read, I comment, I move on.  so this my apology in advance for all comments that seem a little jiggy.
