Our Atmosphere Is Squeezing The Life Out Of Us. Where’s Yours Going?

The walk of pain
After Right Now Is A Place To Remember

Some on the level folks who think their burden is a tough load would be better off if they got down more or occasionally a tad higher.

See, everything below us or slightly above on the hill of life is where the real heavy lifting happens.

This place we’re at right now is a rest stop and a splendid location for tired mule packers to set a spell and lighten their load by imbibing every bit of nature nurture will allow.

Now is also the perfect time to take a gander at the path of existence for ebb and flow,

Back and forth our dreams and aspirations have scuffed the terrain of

Reality, gently molding the great mother of all mothers into

Whatever we wanted our benefactor to be. From way

Up here its easy to see how the Tides of Altered

Influence us too and by investing a bit of

Time now on Reflection Ridge we

Might catch enough breath to

Spill our beans to anyone

Who shows interest in

Knowing how this

Trail winds up.

Thank you, friend.

Barry out.



Pink Floyd – Learning To Fly

Into the distance, a ribbon of black
Stretched to the point of no turning back
A flight of fancy on a windswept field
Standing alone my senses reeled
A fatal attraction is holding me fast
How can I escape this irresistible grasp?

Can’t keep my eyes from the circling sky
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

Ice is forming on the tips of my wings
Unheeded warnings, I thought I thought of everything
No navigator to find my way home
Unleadened, empty and turned to stone

A soul in tension, is learning to fly
Condition grounded but determined to try
Can’t keep my eyes from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I

Friction lock… Set… Mixture… Rich propellers… Fully forward flaps… Set… Ten degrees…
Full gauges and suction – check
Gas set to maximum percent – recheck
Flight instruments…
Altimeters – check both
Navigation lights – on
Strobes on
Confirm 3-8 Echo ready for departure
Hello again, this is now 129.4
129.4, its to go.
You make commence your take-off, winds over 10 knots.
Easy on the brakes. Take it easy, it’s gonna roll this time: just hand the power gradually, and it…

Above the planet on a wing and a prayer,
My grubby halo, a vapour trail in the empty air
Across the clouds I see my shadow fly
Out of the corner of my watering eye
A dream unthreatened by the morning light
Could blow this soul right through the roof of the night

There’s no sensation to compare with this
Suspended animation, a state of bliss
Can’t keep my mind from the circling skies
Tongue-tied and twisted just an earthbound misfit, I
