"Enjoy the Silence"

great song & lyrics by Depeche Mode - 
 (for Cynthia)
Words like violence

Break the silence

Come crashing in

Into my little world

Painful to me

Pierce right through me

Can't you understand

Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted

All I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are very unnecessary

They can only do harm
Vows are spoken

To be broken

Feelings are intense

Words are trivial

Pleasures remain

So does the pain

Words are meaningless

And forgettable

All I ever wanted

All I ever needed

Is here in my arms

Words are very unnecessary

They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence

Monday, November 16, 2009 - You Talk Too Much by RUN-DMC

That's the video by RUN-DMC on YouTube...

My title song from RUN DMC:

You talk too much You never shut up

I said you talk too much Homeboy you never shut up

You talk about people, you don't even know

And you talk about places, you NEVER go

You talk about your girl, from head to toe

I said your mouth's moving fast, and your brain's moving slow

You talk too much You never shut up!!

I said you talk too much Homeboy you never shut up

Quick thought:

heard this tonight:
Let go of the past, let go of the future, let go of the present, and cross over to the farther shore of existence. - Buddha

PINK FLOYD - "COMFORTABLY NUMB": Comfortably Numb (Gilmour, Waters) 6:49


Is there anybody in there?

Just nod if you can hear me.

Is there anyone at home?

Come on, now,

I hear you're feeling down.

Well I can ease your pain

Get you on your feet again.


I'll need some information first.

Just the basic facts.

Can you show me where it hurts?

Buddhist quotes help share the gentle way...

I have really begun to embrace Buddhism as a way of life.  Not that I practice all the priniciples, but that's exactly it - it is a gentl way of life - full of compassion.  Here are some great quotes that really resonated with me:

"Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love." ~Rumi

"Happiness mainly comes from our own attitude, rather than from external factors." ~Dalai Lama

"To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did." ~Unknown

"The person who lives life fully, glowing with life's energy, is the person who lives a successful life." ~Daisaku Ikeda

I also realized that people (me, too) tend to spend too much time concerned with all the things they do not yet have, but  yet far too little time appreciating all that we already have...
Sunday, Sunday...

Chloe got picked by her mom early today and so I go immediately into retrospective and self-evaluation mode. My heart hurts each time she leaves or when I drop her off. My 2 older daughters are equally as special, but my bond w/ Chloe is newer and very strong now. Most people do not realize I am close to 41 years old have lived a much bigger life than i choose to let on. I believe what I do is my business - unless i share, so now I'm blogging it!!

I started writing down little snippets of things I am thinking about, so here are some:

LIFE: it may considered as borrowed time, but we have the choice as to how we live it during ours.

HAPPINESS is not an accident

Into each life, they say; a little rain must fall. The amount of sun, well that has yet to be defined.

DAYS and years my go past, but true true friendship is timeless.

Filling our days with selfless acts, kind deeds and compassion only makes us stronger as a whole.
