City of Angels

City of Angels has been playing on cable past two weeks and yes, its cheesy but I love it and believe in the spirituality in the movie.  I'm not a fan of Nicholas Cage but still liked the movie nonetheless and it also had one of my favorite songs playing--Iris by the Goo Goo Dolls where you "bleed to just to know you're alive"!  If you've never seen the movie, here's a clip from the trailer.  Free Will vs. One?! I love that scene and all of a sudden this glutton wants pancakes!!

With Dreams in My Head -Goodnight

As I was changing my bed sheets earlier I was reminded of this beautiful song...

Don't Need Much To Be Happy

Don't much to be happy, four walls and a roof overhead
books and food in my belly and cool sheets upon the bed...
Sometimes it's hard to remember how tough we are to please

All in good time, somehow I find the days that still shine with the light
All in good stead I"m safe and fed with dreams in my head-goodnight
the feel of my hand being taken....and a breeze on a warm summer evening

a friend to soften a fall, and something to show for my labors,
after all, I had to learn to be grateful, I had to learn how to see
mistakes that might have proved fatal are gifts I now receive.

and so with dreams in my head, I say goodnight.
