SongSailing

It's not far down to paradise
At least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away
And find tranquility
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never never land
No reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy
Of innocence again
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

Sailing
Takes me away
To where I've always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Fantasy
It gets the best of me
When I'm sailing
All caught up in the reverie
Every word is a symphony
Won't you believe me

It's not far back to sanity
At least it's not for me
And when the wind is right you can sail away
And find serenity
The canvas can do miracles
Just you wait and see
Believe me

  this song has been playing on my stereo the entire night.

the words brings a certain amount of happiness amidst my loneliness these days.

of hope, of a better future... of something that i can look forward to...
what that something is, i have no idea

but i do hope that right wond comes along and blows me the air of tranquility, of a joy of innocence, of a serenity that i crave for...

and i am not hoping to find these things in my work.

work is work. and even if it's something that i find peace in... of joy in, it can only fill so much of my day.

i took my sister's dog out today.
we went for a little walk... and a little drive.
we sat in a cafe where they served doggie meals and watched the world go by, just him and me.

and there i was, brought back to another time and place where i was doing the same thing with another friend's dog in a quaint little cafe near the river.

and i heard this song on the radio... and the words "soon i will be free" and i do believe in that.

soon i will be free.

so there i was, with my sis's dog on my lap... patiently spending a quiet night with me.
we'll be spending a lot of quiet nights together as my sis and her husband will be posted overseas and i'll be babysitting the dog.

sometimes i wonder, who's babysitting who?

a lot of people say i do not have peace within myself.

but i do find that peace.

it's just that they don't see me when i do have that peace.

they've never seen me out at sea with my surfboard,
they've never seen me behind the camera,
they've never seen me in my element...
and they've never seen me sitting in a cafe with a dog on my lap

so if u happen to see a funny guy sitting at a sidewalk cafe with a dog on his laps,
do walk over and say hi...
he may turn out to be me
