Deja Vu All Over Again




Day after Day, another mama's crying
She's lost her precious Child to a war that has no end......

Yesterday while I untangled an unholy mess from my loom, Gerry was playing his guitar. He has learned this song all the way through, he sounds really good, and it was in my head all night. What a profound song. Really puts into perspective how unimportant worrying about clay and yarn really is. Mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, children,and friends are losing a loved one somewhere in this world everyday. That's what's important..... the time we have with the ones we love, while we have them ..... for such a short time.


peace ya'll

That made me cry. I found out today that my grandson is being sent to Afghanistan. I was hoping with things winding down he'd not have to go.

Parts of another song that brings tears to my eyes...


Yes, how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died ?
The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

GG, I will be thinking about you and your grandson. I was thinking today that this war has been going on almost as long as my child has been alive, it's all she has known....
I hope he stays safe xo

Thank you, Tracey. Seems I've been protesting wars since the 60s--and now I'm in my sixties! My husband is an anti-war 'Nam vet with PTSD so we continue to rage against war.
