To break one’s word is pleasure–fraught,
To do one’s duty gives a smart;
While man, alas! will promise nought,
That is repugnant to his heart.
Using some magic strains of yore,
Thou lurest him, when scarcely calm,
On to sweet folly’s fragile bark once more,
Renewing, doubling chance of harm.
Why seek to hide thyself from me?
Fly not my sight—be open then!
Known late or early it must be,
And here thou hast thy word again.
My duty is fulfill’d to–day,
No longer will I guard thee from surprise;
But, oh, forgive the friend who from thee turns away,
And to himself for refuge flies!
Possibly the Most Peaceful religion in the planet. I’m not religious but I like their way of life and how they respect all living things (sorry but I kill insects LOL) and adhere to a vegetarian diet. They also have beautiful chants, prayers and sayings.
My favorite kind of music, especially from the 70’s. For the record I don’t celebrate “Thanksgiving”, that’s something you’re supposed to do Everyday regardless of belief system. Also, I Don’t celebrate the Killing of Innocents and the taking of their LANDS!!! Only because some ASSHOLE long ago decided that being WHITE equals to being Better and allowed them the taking of land, people and properties THAT WERE NEVER YOURS TO BEGIN WITH NOR EVER WILL BE!!
You gotta Love people who LOVE Drama only to stay relevant. Why are people so enamored of Reality Trash TV??! Why do the CacaDashians (pun intended Caca means Shit in Spanish) have more followers than the Pope?! My bad I forgot More Than Ever Shit REALLY DOES SELL!!
DING DING: NOT EVERYONE THAT DOESN’T LIKE DRAMA CREATES IT NOR LOVES IT !!
I love this book. I love Francie Nolan because she’s not your typical blond blue eye beauty. She is REAL, growing up in an impoverished family in early 1900’s Williamsburg Brooklyn, she learns at a very young age the hardships of life. Nonetheless, that is no reason for her to not find happiness in the unlikeliest places. Deep down she always knew Neeley her younger brother, was Katie’s favorite. But unlike her mother, dad Johnny Nolan always had time for her and would stay up at night sometimes talking to her. I cried so much when her dad died, never again would she hear him coming up the Steps singing “Molly Malone”. Francie is an inspirational character and that tree had a particular meaning for her, one which I won’t give away here. It’s a wonderful book and it comes HIGHLY recommended. Also Brooklyn is my Home!!! 🙂
Ever heard a piece of beautiful music that just makes you stop in your tracks and just listen to the song because it sounds as if Angels were singing? I got goosebumps when I first heard these two tracks. One by Vangelis “La Petite Fille De la Mer” and the second one was featured in a videogame called There Came an Echo . The track is by Big Giant Circles (feat. Ashly Burch & Malukah) and is called Outside the Realm.
Music indeed is the Universal Language.
I die a little inside everytime I hear someone say that reading is Only for Nerds or is the most boring thing on earth. Last person who told me this I said “You must be the most boring and unimaginative person alive!”. Seriously, WTF is wrong with people! How can Anyone NOT love something as liberating and wonderful as reading a book. And we ask ourselves why the world is the way it is?! I swear I think Technology has rendered people more Stupid with the Passage of time instead of the opposite. #allreadersunite
