The House That Claire Built

Monday, May 23, 2011

 You ever have that feeling that you could not WAIT to get to work fast enough? Ya, I didn't think that feeling existed either, until today. The sun was shining, and I feel blessed to be alive.

On May 19th, 2011 at 6:25 in the morning I escaped out of a burning house with three precious possesions; my life, my best friend Dan, and my pit bull Apollo. The following blog is a series of mismatched thoughts running through my mind that might want to show my kids someday. The next few  months I don't want to forget the people, experiences, lessons, and expose of love that has come flying at me.

Thanks to Shannon Hoon of Blind Melon for singing me to work today.....

I don't feel the sun's comin' out today
It's staying in, it's gonna find another way.
As I sit here in this misery,
I don't think I'll ever, no lord, see the sun from here.
And oh as I fade away,
They'll all look at me and say, and they'll say,
"Hey look at him, I'll never live that way."
But that's okay, they're just afraid to change.
And when you feel your life ain't worth living
You've got to stand up and take a look around you
Then a look way up to the sky.
And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
Keep on dreaming, boy, 'cause when you stop dreamin' it's time to die.
And as we all play parts of tomorrow,
Some ways we'll work and other ways we'll play.
But I know we can't all stay here forever,
So I want to write my words on the face of today
...And then they'll paint it
And oh as I fade away,
They'll all look at me and say, they'll say,
"Hey look at him and where he is these days."
When life is hard, you have to change.
When life is hard, you have to change.
