~ James Boswell ~


“What is a friend? I will tell you. It is a person with whom you dare to be yourself. Your soul can be naked with him. He seems to ask of you to put on nothing, only to be what you are. He does not want you to be better or worse. When you are with him, you feel as a prisoner feels who has been declared innocent. You do not have to be on your guard. You can say what you think, so long as it is genuinely you. He understands those contradictions in your nature that lead others to misjudge you. With him you breathe freely. You can avow your little vanities and envies and hates and vicious sparks, your meannesses and absurdities and, in opening them up to him, they are lost, dissolved on the white ocean of his loyalty. He understands. You do not have to be careful. You can abuse him, neglect him, and tolerate him. Best of all, you can keep still with him. It makes no matter. He likes you. He is like fire that purges to the bone. He understands. You can weep with him, sin with him, laugh with him, and pray with him. Through it all – and underneath – he sees, knows and loves you.
A friend? What is a friend?
Just one, I repeat, with whom you dare to be yourself.”
~ C. Raymond Beran ~

Now nearly all those I have loved in my youth are dead, even Jesse.

But, I still reach out to them.

Of course now I am too old to be much of a fisherman,

And I usually fish the big waters alone,

Although some friends think I shouldn’t.

But, when I am alone in the half light of the canyon,

All existence seems to fade to a being with my soul

And memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four count rhythm

And the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually all things merge into one and a river runs trough it.

The river was cut by the world’s great flood

And runs over the rocks from the basement of time

On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops and under the rocks are words,

I am haunted by words.

Norman McClean – A River Runs Through It

We learn what will do by what will not do

Easy Silence

When the calls and conversations

Accidents and accusations

Messages and misperceptions

Paralyze my mind Busses, cars, and airplanes leaving

Burning fumes of gasoline

And everyone is running

And I come to find a refuge in the

Easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me

The way you keep the world at bay

Monkeys on the barricades

Are warning us to back away

They form commissions trying to find

The next one they can crucify

And anger plays on every station

Answers only make more questions

I need something to believe in

Breathe in sanctuary in the

Easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me

The way you keep the world at bay

Children lose their youth too soon

Watching war made us immune

And I’ve got all the world to lose

But I just want to hold on to the

Easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me

The easy silence that you make for me

It’s okay when there’s nothing more to say to me

And the peaceful quiet you create for me

And the way you keep the world at bay for me

When Did You Fall

You’re all smiles and silly conversation

As if this sunny day came just for you

You twist your hair, you smile and you turn your eyes away

C’mon, tell me what’s right with you

Now it dawns on me probably everybody’s talkin’

And there’s something here I’m supposed to realize

‘Cause your secret’s out, and the universe laughs at it’s joke on me

I just caught it in your eyes, it’s a beautiful surprise

When did you fall in love with me?

Was it out of the blue

‘Cause I swear I never knew it

When did you let your heart run free?

Have you been waiting long?

When did you fall in love with me?

When did you fall in love?

Make your way over here, sit down by this fool, and let’s rewind

C’mon, let’s go back and replay all our scenes

You can point out the hints, the clues, the twists and the smiles this time

All the ones that slipped by me

I bet my face is red, and you can hear my heart poundin’

Well I guess it don’t matter now that I realize

‘Cause baby I missed it then, but I can surely see you now

Right there before my eyes

You’re my beautiful surprise

Was it at the coffee shop

Or that morning at the bus stop

When you almost slipped, and I caught your hand

Or the time we built the snowman

The day at the beach, sandy and warm

Or the night with the scary thunderstorm

I never saw the signs

Now we’ve got to make up for lost time

And I can tell now by the way that you’re looking at me

I’d better finish this song so my lips will be free

Have you been waiting long, when did you fall in love

I kept you waiting so long, when did you fall

Have you been waiting long

When did you fall in love with me

When did you fall in love?

Waiting On The World To Change

me and all my friends

we’re all misunderstood

they say we stand for nothing and

there’s no way we ever could

now we see everything that’s going wrong

with the world and those who lead it

we just feel like we don’t have the means

to rise above and beat it

so we keep waiting

waiting on the world to change

we keep on waiting

waiting on the world to change

it’s hard to be assistance

when we’re standing at a distance

so we keep waiting

waiting on the world to change

now if we had the power

to bring our neighbors home from war

they would have never missed a Christmas

no more ribbons on their door

and when you trust your television

what you get is what you got

cause when they own the information, oh

they can bend it all they want

that’s why we’re waiting

waiting on the world to change

we keep on waiting

waiting on the world to change

it’s not that we don’t care,

we just know that the fight ain’t fair

so we keep on waiting

waiting on the world to change

and we’re still waiting

waiting on the world to change

we keep on waiting waiting on the world to change

one day our generation

is gonna rule the population

so we keep on waiting

waiting on the world to change

we keep on waiting

waiting on the world to change
