Smile

September 12, 2008

Would this do
To make it all right
While sleep has taken you
Where I’m out of sight

I’ll make my getaway
Time on my own
Search for a better way
To find my way home to your smile

Wasting days and days
On this fight
Always down and up
Half the night

Hopeless to reminisce
Through the dark hours
We’ll only sacrifice
What time will allow us
You’re sighing… sighing

All alone
Though you’re right here
Now it’s time to go
From your sad stare

Make my getaway
Time on my own
Leaving’s a better way
To find my way home
To your smile
Your smile…

–David Gilmour

Buy My Car

April 10, 2008

I loved that car, but it’s just not doing any good sitting in California while I am out here.  My brother put the ad up yesterday.  After seeing the roads in Goma, I don’t think the car would do well there (ok the car was never going to come to Africa).  Click here to see the advertisement.

Buy my Car 2

If anyone is interested in buying it, or knows anyone who might be, send either me or my brother an email

I wish I could have written this:

I’ve listened to a lot of music while sitting in Kinshasa waiting for the next flight:

 

We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment,
We are choosing to be here right now. Hold on, stay inside
This holy reality, this holy experience.
Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Alive, I

In this holy reality, in this holy experience. Choosing to be here in

This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal
All this pain is an illusion.

Twirling round with this familiar parable.
Spinning, weaving round each new experience.
Recognize this as a holy gift and celebrate this chance to be alive and breathing.

This body holding me reminds me of my own mortality.
Embrace this moment. Remember. We are eternal.
All this pain is an illusion.
