Back when I knew everything!

There are some few things in my life that I can say without fear of equivocation,
had a profound impact on the person that I was to become in later life.
..Well that just sounds really heavy don't it?..No matter.

No doubt,each of us can trace some aspect of our developing personalities to this person,that book,or a song that spoke to us when it seemed as if there just wasn't a single soul on earth that understood what was going on in our heads.

By the time I was 16,My Godfather had taught me,by example,what it meant to be an honorable man.
George Orwell's Animal Farm,had opened my eyes to the evil that men do.
And Harry Nilsson put lyrics to music,that defined that restlessness I had been feeling,but couldn't quite articulate.

'Bankin' off of the Northeast wind,sailin' on Summer breeze,and skipping over the ocean like a stone'



'Everybody's talkin' at me'

I like deep people... I completely agree... basically we have effected who we are today,,, what a simple concept and we can affect who will be tomorrow and the next and the next year and decade etc...

'Scuse me...I digress...I didn't quite understand the question yesterday....what do women want?..I do not think any one person has a " hold" on running for an office...If Obama does not think Hillary is a suiatable mate for VP, if he thinks she would notbe a good working partner...or maybe she would be better for another slot...then he should pick another person that HE thinks is best for the job, that he can work with. Should it be another woman, GREAT!!..and Hillary should not be offended or upset. The VP slot is not personally her slot. Is that what women want? I do not know, that is what I would want/ think...

I love that song! It brings good memories.
It is a little scary to think the impact we have on others while being totally unaware of being an influence for good or for evil.

Hat-tastic- I hear you guys are getting rained on up in your neck o' the woods.
You're gonna love the weather down here. :)

doralong- You still get flashbacks from the 60's?..me too!

austexgrl- See!..This my thinking as well.Fair is fair.

mom- I try to keep track of my behavior around the youngsters,for that very reason.

You post some great music vidoes. That song runs through my head with great frequency.

As for the Hillary/Obama thing, I hadn't heard that, but as a woman (and I was, last time I checked) that would never even occur to me. I think it's aboutmaking a partnership that would work well together and also that owuld improve chances of winning hte election. Who has "dibs" is irrelevant.

animal farm made me suspicious of pigs then deadwood confirmed my worst fears.

citizen- I imagine that this song would be rolling around in your head,given your line of work...Too funny!

billy P.- Our mutual paranoia has been well earned my friend.

Oh certain occasions...I like to be felt up..

I've completely forgotten about that song and the great lyrics. Thanks for the refresher!

Good memories as usual Sling... A defining moment for me happened when my mum, carrying a small baby, holding a toddler by the hand, and with two of us older, and bags moved us all back on the railway platform when the local doctor approached. He walked past her without even acknowledgeing her after her making such an effort to let him pass - when he could have walked around her much more easily as a decent human being should have. It had been so ingrained into my mum that she did this without thought. But it stuck in my brain and it coloured the way I thought about the system which is insane, and my place inside this insane system. Whew - You really made me think Sling... not bad for 6am.
