donde vive el amor? (where is my love)

The heart has its seasons
did you ever waken to the sound of street cats making love
and guess from their cries you were listening to a fight
well you know, hates just the last thing they're thinking of
they're only trying to make it through the night

i only want to hold you
i dont want to tie you down
or fence you between the lines i might have drawn

life is not about how to surivive in the storm but how to dance in the rain

there comes a point
in ones life
when you come to realize
who matters
who never did
who wont anymore
and who always will
so dont worry about the people from the past
theres a reason why they did not make it to you future

my name is brittney, most call me la la la always gigglin and laughin, i try and keep a smile but sometimes it takes more than a smile to get in college for massage therapy i've got 3 months to get my diploma if i wanna make atleast one show this summer....i love the gratefulness of the deads groupies...i have only met a few hippies, but the ones i have met have been amazing friends and great partiers!!....i met a dead head last summer....and ever since he's turned me on to the dead, i havent had anything else on my mind, except for touring this summer....only things arent given to you, you have to work for them, and i definately need a job, picked a bad time to look for one...with the economy down...but liqour sales are up!! if only they would legalize marijuana...that would bring the economy up out of this!! for long as the government can make money off from it, and tax the hell out of a country girl.was raised on a farm around horses, and i spend most of my summer nights camping out by a campfire...i own a small trailer that sits in a campground surrounded by the potomac river...i live in west virginia...and im lookin forward to meeting alot of peace loving free spitits... i am planning on goin to atleast one show...i'd like to go to more....but i dont have a van....if i did, i'd be gettin a bunch of people together to come with me...if anyone lives in wv....close to me, i would pitch in for gas....but it would be nice to go with someone instead of drivin by myself....i have a who doesnt? my website is

how the univers began

a small particle too small for the naked eye
floats through this timeless space...
particle on top of molecule, now we've got dust
gathered in outer space what a seemingless place

was this dust sent through a black hole,
to every beginning an end
or should we assume that the the universe was prexistent before any matter

now its time for
time to fall into place
how long has this space been
when did it began

this universe keeps to its laws (natures laws)
only to expand upon its contents and their mass along with the gravitational pull
that allows it to contract and expand
proving that oneday
in a point of of time
this space was smaller than today

Here comes the prime evil atom
causing a great big bang
among this small matter of what seemed to be dust
was actuallyintended to be an egg
releasing gases
hydrogen, helium
creating a much compounded world
left for evolution to take its course
this is where life comes into effect...
answering the question how the universe began

my friend Rush

i got a few minutes, so i
think ill shoot from the hip
not hold anything back now
gonna really let her rip
been keeping it all bottled up inside
for so long now i might cry
but i really need to let it all out
theres something so large
it cant be seen
and something so small
it cant be missed
would you come if i call
or would you run away
and jump the wall
see if you can get to the door
before i fall
you know those words you said
they put me on the floor
so i pick myself up and smile
and say thankyou
for all the things
that you put me through
and i thank you again
for the way that you are
cause without your lens
my eye camera
doesn't focus at all
my friends cat
her name is Rush
she likes to sit in the tub
and stare at me
with her gold green glowing eyes
she ducks her head to hide
cause she knows that i can't see her
if she can't see me
then we play "string"
for hours and hours on end

mr charlie

I won't even take your life
Won't even take a limb
Just unload my shotgun
And take a little skin

Well you take a silver dollar
Take a silver dime
Mix it up together
In some alligator wine

I can hear the drums
Voodoo all night long
Mister Charlie telling me
I can't do nothing wrong

lyics:Robert Hunter

A snowy day
To sit and see
laughing water dancing free
on tye dye dreams
the whiteness lay
Feel the sky as snowflakes fly

First thought

When we talk this way
The back and forth of good idea
There is no separation now
We are all together now
Always were and always will be
It just takes a little push
And then we are all sailing free
Is not that what we rightly have come here for
Is not that what these guys showed us all to see
Build the superstructure of musical form
Build it slowly slowly
Taking time and great care
That all the pieces fit in just exactly
And then you set off to climb
Climb that superstructure into the sky
And when you achieve and overcome
And the top of the mountain
you see
You run right up without a second thought
And fling yourself into the sky
No need for flapping now
Just think first thought
And you are free

I think I'm Going to Fly

If it's true
Then you will know
Right to the point where
No man goes
No man goes

No man goes
Down that road alone
It hurts just to watch
Someone going to stub their toe
on that same old tree root
Still poking it's head
up out of the ground

It's been done before
But never
All the way home
That is why we are here
To see it through

Walking to nowhere
Doesn't take twice as long
As it ususally did.

I can find my way there
In a moment now
Surrounded by Love
Inside and outside
And up on the ridge

Throwing my arms to the sky
I think I'm going to fly
