Inspiration, move me brightly,

Light the song with sense of color

I believe in love even when I don’t feel it.
I believe in God even when He is silent.

  1. I used to be a bit of a deadhead myself. Back in '94 I saw the dead perform

  2. b.,
    At Nassau? That was a fun week or so.

    I noticed your fine taste in music in your profile, the other day. Your blog is neat; I really enjoyed the Big Girl Bed post.
