Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

Hey, it's no wonder ticket prices went up, somebody's gotta pick up the tab for the survey, dozers, graders, cement mixers, construction-site featherbedding, and time-honored customary bribes to local officials and inspectors.

Not to mention the post-1970's environmental impact study, traffic flow analysis, retaining pond for stormwater runoff, ...

On a more serious note, I was a fan of her whimsical, very non-cookie-cutter musical style, particularly her unique harmonies and lyrics. Too bad she seems to have given up touring.
