Happy Birthday Taurus baby!

Today I got in my car, put in my Lucinda Williams CD, drove down Chicken Bridge Road, through Silk Hope, and on to my favorite antique shops. I found a picture of Jesus for your birthday, Wesley. I think you will like it. I thought about the day you were born and all the days since. I'm so glad you are my child, so proud of you, so happy that we have walked side by side for 20 years.
Love you so much, Happy Birthday!

you were right, this is a good song for me....
I've listened to it over and over

I think I'm gonna make myself a little something to eat,
Get a can down off the shelf, maybe a little something sweet.
Haven't spoke to no one, haven't been in the mood,
Pour some soup, get a spoon, stir it up real good.
Go out with a friend, they know the music might help,
But I can't pretend - I wish I was somewhere else.

I wanna watch the ocean bend,
The edges of the sun,then 
I wanna get swallowed up
In an ocean of love.

Put on my coat, go out into the street,
Get a lump in my throat, and look down at my feet.
Take the long way home, so I can ride around,
Put Neil Young on and turn up the sound.
Drive up the coastline, maybe to Ventura,
Watch the waves make signs out on the water.

I wanna watch the ocean bend,
The edges of the sun,then 
I wanna get swallowed up
In an ocean of love.

Stand in the shower, clean this dirty mess,
Give me back my power, and drown this unholyness.
Lean over the toilet bowl, and throw up my confession,
Clense my soul, of this hidden obsession.

I wanna watch the ocean bend,
The edges of the sun,then
I wanna get swallowed up
In an ocean of love.
