Making Good Choices

“And the sky is black and still now
On the hill where the angels sing
Ain’t it funny how an old broken bottle
Looks just like a diamond ring
But it’s far, far from me”

All Good Things in All Good Time

“The trouble with love is its other face
You just want the cup, but you don’t want the race
No, you don’t want the race

Run, run, run for the roses
The bigger it opens, the sooner it closes
Man, oh, man, oh friend of mine
All good things in all good time”

“Where the search for the truth is conducted with a wink and a nod,
And where power and position are equated with the grace of God,
These times are famine for the soul, while for the senses it’s a feast,
From the edge of my country, as far as you see, looking east”

– Jackson Browne, from Looking East Read more…

So Swiftly the Sun Sets in the Sky

“Disillusioned words like bullets bark
As human gods aim for their mark
Make everything from toy guns that spark
To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
It’s easy to see without looking too far
That not much is really sacred”

– Bob Dylan Read more…

“While one who sings with his tongue on fire
Gargles in the rat race choir
Bent out of shape from society’s pliers
Cares not to come up any higher
But rather get you down in the hole
That he’s in”

– Bob Dylan, from It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding) Read more…
