God's Own Open Road

God's Own Open Road

Somewhere "neath a darkened sky
A weary heart and a lonesome eye
Tracks along an empty highway
Lead to somewhere else

All my past and all my wishes
Tears reflect on muddy ditches
My own mind is searching for
An answer from the eyes that look right back

I want to know about the outer reaches
Everything that heartbreak teaches
questions of survival that in every soul exist
What about the endless sky
What about the child that wants to know just why
The world spins round and people die
And does it hurt, well baby so do I

Walking/(biking) on the streets I've known
along a place that I once called home
A stranger now...another time
That doesn't want me back

Poems(songs) in my native tongue
Whisper where I used to run
The river brushing by a shore
That knew it all along

Here I stood and there I dreamed
of future bright as magazines
Without the shades of sorrow in between
Where we've been and what we've seen
Are we taught or are we teaching
Reaching, seeking, needing, preaching,
Pleading, speeding, screeching to a halt

Cattle guards and power lines
Mark the distance of our times
Like wheels that roll and bells that toll
Of hours and aging wine

Love we gave and love we made
Gone astray and then forgave
Naked as a masquerade
for truth to figure out

Voices shout and voices sing
Words slip out and some stay in
in symphonies that live within the pockets of our soul
Colors of the open sea
Paint the edges of a dream
with crystal blues and deeper hues
Of wind and earth and God's own open road.

lyrics by Tish Hinojosa and one of my favorite songs.

The Squeakquel!

They're Back!
CANNOT wait for the new movie...
even if I have to go by myself!

What Works!

Watched the NBC nightly news earlier tonight
and while most of it was depressing,
this news piece was wonderful to see and hear.
Support the monks and give back to charity at the same time!
A win-win situation.
I plan to buy some coffee in the very near future.

Word of the day: Indigo (not sure if this is the right color...hard to tell on the scale and there are not titles)

Numbers of the day: 7/7

Sitting here listening to the wonderful titled song, Indigo by Stephen Duros from his cd Thira. A very appropiate song given my wonderful Reiki massage this afternoon. Thanks to the massage my chakras are aligned and in perfect harmony. Wikipedia states: "the color electric indigo is used to symbolically represent the sixth chakra (called Ajna), which is said to include the third eye. This chakra is believed to be related to intuition and gnosis (spiritual knowlege)."

Usually after my massage, Frances says, "now I see your aura glowing". Next time, I'll have to ask her what color(s). Also read in Wiki that people with Indigo auras are said to be in occupations such as computer analyst, animal caretaker, and counselor. Now, I know why indigo has always been one of my favorite colors.

Because of the lucky 7's given this day, I meant to go out and buy a lottery ticket but forgot to do so. :-( Numerologists love days like today and just came across this, which given the memorial for Michael Jackson is a bit eerie.

Turtle Island

Originally uploaded by Nieve44/La Luz
So it's been a month since my vacation in Turtle Island, aka Santa Fe. Still haven't uploaded all my photos but getting there...almost! The trip seems so long ago instead of just a month ago. Here we are in July and I'm on vacation again but no getaway's this time. Just chilling and hanging around the house as I'm still not done paying the a/c man for his services but I am sooo thankful to have a new a/c. Now, I can really go into hibernation mode with this heat wave we've been having.

The photo is one of my favorites of the many photos I took watching the sunset that night up on the hill at the Elks Lodge in Santa Fe. I think I spent a good hour outside after dinner capturing the beauty that was just breathtaking! I'm ready to go back!
