Decompression Snack

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Take a box of  spice cookies

pumpkin ice cream

whipped cream

walnuts

sit down with ingriedients, fav movie /TV show and make autumn ice cream bars !!

A steaming cup of sumatra coffee with 1 part rum in it- and you are in heaven, best done after work while you laugh—

Then you will be ready to start your evening …..a long walk perhaps under the moon and stars, don’t forget to howl at the moon – if someone pokes their head out the door to see what the rukus is -just say Did you hear that ? There must be coyotes in the area! and walk on. Yes, walk on!

=============

Peace —do something extra ordinary today.

Mirth

” A Pale Green Mermaid Gallery”

 

=======================

Beauty can’t be sliced or diced

pared or boxed

some rely on the past to see the future

like an old slipper

worn with holes

but something you know

that path a slow dearth

little mirth

little birth of a new

you

still everyone chooses their way

to stay on course

straight as an arrow, gliding through a cloud

I prefer something brand new

the old I eschew

I seek–

a workout for the soul.

Hippie Quote Of The Day

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

Source: Woodstock
“People today are still living off the table scraps of the sixties. They are still being passed around- the music and the ideas. “
Bob Dylan (1992)

========================

One-

You are the  one

that makes me feel that way

Like I want to stay

and play

have some fun

eventhough things like that weigh a ton.

==============

 

Song of the day

STAY    Jackson Browne

Now the seats are all empty
Let the roadies take the stage
Pack it up and tear it down

They’re the first to come and last to leave
Working for that minimum wage
They’ll set it up in another town

Tonight the people were so fine
They waited there in line
And when they got up on their feet they made the show

And that was sweet
But I can hear the sound
Of slamming doors and folding chairs
And that’s a sound they’ll never know

Now roll them cases out and lift them amps
Haul them trusses down and get’em up them ramps
‘Cause when it comes to moving me
You know you guys are the champs

But when that last guitar’s been packed away
You know that I still want to play
So just make sure you got it all set to go
Before you come for my piano

But the band’s on the bus
And they’re waiting to go
We’ve got to drive all night and do a show in Chicago

Or Detroit, I don’t know
We do so many shows in a row
And these towns all look the same

We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
And wander ’round backstage
Till those lights come up and we hear that crowd
And we remember why we came

Now we got country and western on the bus
are and be ,
we got disco in eight tracks and cassettes in stereo

We’ve got rural scenes & magazines
We’ve got truckers on the CB
We’ve got Richard Pryor on the video

We got time to think of the ones we love
While the miles roll away
But the only time that seems too short
Is the time that we get to play

People you’ve got the power over what we do
You can sit there and wait
Or you can pull us through
Come along, sing the song
You know that you can’t go wrong

‘Cause when that morning sun comes beating down
You’re going to wake up in your town
But we’ll be scheduled to appear
A thousand miles away from here

People stay just a little bit longer
We want to play, just a little bit longer

Now the promoter don’t mind
And the union don’t mind
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind and sing
One more song

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Please please please, say you will
Say you will

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Oh please please please stay
just a little bit long

I bet promotors don’t mind
And the roadies don’t mind
If we take a little time
And we leave this all behind
Singing one more song

========================

Stay just a little bit longer….!
