Our skies are so orange.
A word that does not rhyme.
is a sky that does not sleep.

Life passes though another full moon and, this one, eclipsed.
If you are reading this
know that you have passed through
some heavy duty stuff
and that all is well
on the rocky road ahead.

Here are the lyrics to another song I just can't get enough of recently: covered by The Corrs and Bono it is a Ryan Adams' song called :

"When The Stars Go Blue"

Dancin' where the stars go blue
Dancin' where the evening fell
Dancin' in your wooden shoes
In a wedding gown

Dancin' out on 7th street
Dancin' through the underground
Dancin' little marionette
Are you happy now?

Where do you go when you're lonely
Where do you go when you're blue
Where do you go when you're lonely
I'll follow you
When the stars go blue

Laughing with your pretty mouth
Laughing with your broken eyes
Laughing with your lover's tongue
In a lullaby

Where do you go when you're lonely
Where do you go when you're blue
Where do you go when you're lonely
I'll follow you
When the stars go blue
The stars go blue, stars go blue

Earth Mother
I can not hear this song enough lately. It is from the Paul Kantner/Grace Slick album entitled, SUNFIGHTER.
Tonight I dedicate it to the firefighters hard at work all over the West .

Earth Mother

Earth mother your children are here
High and feeling dandy
Earth mother your children are here
Ripped on coke and candy

Once the earth was a garden
It gave us all we need
Then it grew so barren
All because of greed

Once the air was for breathing
And clouds caused rain to fall
Then it filled with poisons
Strangling us all


Water was once for drinking
And giving life to the land
Then it was used for cooling
The machinery of man


It's not your fault you're ill now
It's the men who went before
Your children are at your side now
Don't worry anymore

Your children are your salvation
They see your life as their own
They recognize no nation
They dance around your throne

Dancing in the meadows
To the sound of a living tree
In and out of the shadows
Laughing with the breeze

And here is a great place for
Jefferson Airplane lyrics!

The sun goes down like a big red ball...the old Laurie Anderson line hits hard these past few weeks in New Mexico as fires rage all around. We've had daily hits of LA haze and asthmatic air. Not the usual blue, blue skies.
Tonight, five episodes of Scrubs play one after the other. It is a silly doktor show but one which we caught toward the season's end...If you missed it on FREETV during its season...catch it on the re-runs.
I really enjoyed watching the taped GERMANY/USA soccer match. Couldn't get up at five a.m but on tape just as good. The USA team did really well . Germany goes on to beat Korea. Soccer is a great game for short fast people like myself. I played in High School and for one year in College with a man named Kyle Rote, Jr.

Two dear friends lost their thirteen year old good dog named,Franny this week.
It is the time of loss.
Be it pets or parents.
The time of loss is at hand...

Hellbound Train by Savoy Brown is playing
on a cd I downloaded illegally out there on the internet on this program called Limewire.
The weird thing about that song is that it can end at any second.
I was a dj when it first came out. You'd hike up the vinyl and suddenly after 7 or 8 minutes the song would just stop. It was tough with vinyl back inthe dayz...

Limewire is a Mac thing. Apple Stock took a HUGE dive this week btw...and most other stocks too took a spin in the here's looking at you kid in the basement sort of approach to life

MY favorite song of the moment is THE CORRS and BONEHEADE doing When the Stars turn blue...That and Mister Tambourine Man.

Summer in the City
Greatest phone message of summer came in this week from a friend on a journey with his spousal unit across the went : We just saw a bear go through our campground...we are outside Lake Tahoe...listen to the snap, crackle of our campfire...Thanks for the call Wayne.

As we approach the Summer Solstice, a heavy cloud of pale orange smoke hangs in the sky over our Seven Sisters volcanos on the westwern mesas of Albuquerque. The entire Southwest is ablaze at one place or another with little sign of rain . Our only 'moisture' in three months was a blast of truly golf ball size hail that blasted all the trees and fresh tomato plants in yards across town . It was strange listening to the hail as it marched across the city environs. My big head was pelted hard as I threw blankets over our recently painted truck.

Happy Father's Day...
Here are two shots of me and my Dad, Joe:

He was a Marine Corps pilot in WW II ; played on the Notre Dame Varsity football team under Frank Leahey. A self-made man, he left the planet in 1999.

Tonight, Albuquerque's western sky
shows a toe nail moon and a very bright venus
high over the seven sisters' volcano mesa.
For a moment
I think of Palestine
and maybe those Alanis concert photos with the cool flags.
Today's earth spins freshly chaotic and I am glad that we have passed through another dark side of the moon without exploding.
I don't know about you
but I have been depressed of late.

I saw the movie SLAM starring Saul Williams as Ray Joshua tonight on IFCtv. What an amazing movie.
I enjoyed it as a poet and as someone trying to make a difference in a world of by-the-book establishments . The setting is Washington , DC. Topics: feeling like the odd man out on the way to finding freedom through the endless possibility of poetry and self-expression.

Unlike the main character, Ray Joshua, I am a white guy
and have never been in prison. Like many though, I have visited prisons of my own making. For me, writing is my best means of escapefrom them.

I have had little published success as a writer ; moreso as a poet .
If you write an unpublished short story, novel or poem,
does it matter that no one but you hears it?
There are many prisons of my own making that I would have died in long ago,
if not for self-expression through the written/spoken/performed word.

And by the way, if there is anything at all totally great about Direct Tv, it is the Independent Film Channel.

Came out today...It is a heavy duty Bowie Meistered cd for sure Girls and Boys.
There's even a trippy cover of Neil's I've Been Waiting For You on it.
A great tune from Neil's very first Album:
I've been looking
for a woman
to save my life
Not to beg or to borrow
A woman with
the feeling of
losing once or twice
Who knows how
could it be tomorrow?

I've been waiting for you
And you've been coming to me
For such a long time now
Such a long time now.

I've been waiting for you
And you've been coming to me
For such a long time now
Such a long time now.

Bowie does this song justice and more...
Fact is I like HEATHEN a lot on a 'first listening basis' and Bowie usually takes me a bit of time to warm up to in a fully digging it fashion.

So if today or tomorrow you feel a bit lighter,
blame the astrologists who say
And let me say, this Saturday night,
"Hooray,dudes and dudettes!"
