My Novels

Sunday, June 01, 2003

Sunday...the day of a long afternoon car ride. Time to get out of the house, out of town...and just sightsee. Nice day for it, beautiful blue skies and mild, pleasant temperature. I went on my bike ride early, and it was enjoyable, quiet in the park, a serene time when I'm there all alone with nature. Ring-neck doves nest in the huge cedars, and they call plaintively while I ride the trail; squirrels occasionally dart across my path, and a variety of wild birds dip and dive for leftover crumbs left by people.

I bought a small radio with headphones yesterday, and it's amazing how much these have improved since the last one I had. Remarkable sound, as it has bass boost. I won't use this when I ride the bike, but I need it for the time I'm forced to use my stationary bike or ski machine indoors. And that may be next week, since we're expecting rain almost every day.

I watched an interesting "Inside Fame" last night on CMT about Dwight Yokam. I have always been a fan of his music, even though I don't follow the country music field that closely. I also realize he'd been in several movies, and is a talented actor. What I didn't know is that he'd had a four-year relationship with Bridget Fonda. I am a fan of hers too. At any rate, it was a fascinating biography.

I'll close with these song lyrics by Kansas that capture my mood these days:


I close my eyes
Only for a moment, then the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes, a curiosity
Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind, ohhhh

Now, don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy
Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

Dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
The wind.....
