Little Pink Houses ? Yeup ~ Sign Me Up ;0 )

Firefly 2012/03/19 05:49:48
About an hour ago,
I tried to go to sleep...

Clearly, I failed, and am
Once again, biding my time,
until my eyes get too weary to see...

Seems my mind is in a State of Unrest ~

Not unlike the State of Unrest of This Great Nation,
Which I Proudly call 'Home', and have been Blessed
To Live, and Work, and Play, and Explore and Dream...

My minds' State of Unrest, became a little more at ease, when,
On a last minute whim, I searched out a song, in hopes of doing just that ~

Chillin'my brain, my heart, my soul, into a State of Rest, an' I thought I would share...
( click on the arrow in the picture to the left of my question above, to see and hear )

Perhaps it might do the same for you,
And others like 'YOU, and ME', by offering
Visions of 'Little Pink Houses' and reminding us
Of a State of Being we once had, as a People, as a Nation,
Who dare to dream that we might, once again, come to see and be...

I'm not looking for raves, nor comments, but, IF you wish to share,
Please feel free ~ Your POLITE replies of inspiration would be much appreciated...

After all, that is the whole point of this post, Restoring the Rest, know what I mean ?

Thanks a B.U.N.C.H ~ Peace to Ya, an'Party On ;0 )

oh... P.S. John Cougar R.O.C.K.S !!!

LOL, an'jus'sayin' ~

    Your beautiful video, and music lifted my spirits, indeed ;0 )

    Thanks sooo much for sharing ~ Is it one you made yourself ?

    I think my eyes have absorbed far too many negative things of late,

    And my soul has suffered for it... I can only pray we are better off than

    we seem to be, OR, that we recover quickly from what possibly lies ahead ~

    Mellencamp does rock. Keep your head up, nothing has changed that much except for attitudes. Right now you’re just between a laugh and a tear. That John also.
  • Firefly Guido 2012/03/19 14:35:55
    Thank you for your great and encouraging words, Guido ;0 )

    Perhaps the overwheming amount of posts I see on Sodahead, have done just that...

    Overwhelmed me ~ It is a blessing, indeed, having friends such as you, to enlighten me ~

    A favor perhaps ? Might you find a video, of the 'John' song you referred to, and share ?

    It's not coming to me, at the moment, and I would Oh - So - love to hear it ;0 )

    Beautiful poem and song. I understand what you mean and I`m not American, but follow it`s history up until nowadays. I truly hope it gets to the point where you want it to be. The people have the power. Maybe this song will help cheer you up a bit, good upbeat American music chases the blues away for me. xo take care

    This song is by The Lovin Spoonful. called Do you believe in magic?
  • Firefly sandra 2012/03/19 13:44:44 (edited)
    Oh, that was wonderful !

    Thank you so much

    for sharing your insights,

    kind words, and cheer as well ;0 )

    Peace be with you, Girl ~

    Love it how beautiful, those really were the days ,
    I miss that era when people preached about Love and Peace.
    Too bad the authorities would punish them for it.
    Thanks for sharing such a deeply beautiful song.
    Oh I wish the Hippie`s would make a come back and stay for good.
    And I personally don`t care if they were high all the time, at least they were good and not evil thinkers. hippie s
  • Firefly sandra 2012/03/19 14:03:38
