"Poems, Prayers & Promises"
March 2, 2006

I believe this is just outside Calistoga at the northern end of Napa valley. This was shot this morning from inside a speeding car! Hopefully the weather holds and there will be another picture tomorrow.

I�ve been lately thinking / About my life�s time / All the things I�ve done / And how it�s been / And I can�t help believing / In my own mind / I know I�m gonna hate to see it end

I�ve seen a lot of sunshine / Slept out in the rain / Spent a night or two all on my own / I�ve known my lady�s pleasures / Had myself some friends / And spent a time or two in my own home

And I have to say it now / It�s been a good life all in all / It�s really fine / To have a chance to hang around / And lie there by the fire / And watch the evening tire / While all my friends and my old lady / Sit and pass the pipe around

And talk of poems and prayers and promises / And things that we believe in / How sweet it is to love someone / How right it is to care / How long it�s been since yesterday / And what about tomorrow / And what about our dreams / And all the memories we share

The days they pass so quickly now / Nights are seldom long / And time around me whispers when it�s cold / The changes somehow frighten me / Still I have to smile / It turns me on to think of growing old / For though my life�s been good to me / There�s still so much to do / So many things my mind has never known / I�d like to raise a family / I�d like to sail away / And dance across the mountains on the moon

Ok, I admit it, I like John Denver. My parents had a few of his records when I was a kid. I just listened got one of his albums for kids from the library, all train songs. Pretty good, and Lumpy loves his version of "I've been working on the railroad"!
