"My father took one hundred and thirty-two minutes to die.
i counted.
it happened on the Jellicoe Road. The prettiest road i'd ever seen, where trees made breezy canopies like a tunnel to shnagri-la.
We were going to the ocean, hundreds or kilometres away, because i wanted to see the ocean and my father said that it was about time the four of us made that journey. i remeber asking, "Whats the difference between a trip and a journey?" and my father said, "Narnie, my love, when we get there, you'll understand," and that was the last thing he ever said."

That piece is from the Book by Melina Marchetta (wrote looking for alibrandi) called On the Jellicoe road. I just finished. It's one of those books where you finish and your minds in shock. I would strongly recomend it.

"The sun is rising.
The screames are gone.
Too many have fallen.
Few still stand tall.
Is this the ending, of what we've begun?
Will we remember, what wrong we've done?

When we start killing, it's all coming down.
From the nightmare we created,
I want to be awakened somehow..."

“Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.
“Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.
“He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was wrong.
“The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.”
--Wynstan Hugh Auden, Funeral Blues

"It is very comforting to believe that leaders who do terrible things are, in fact, mad. That way, all we have to do is make sure we don't put psychotics in high places and we've got the problem solved."

So you can color my world with sunshine yellow each day
Oh you can color my world with happiness all the way
Just take the green from the grass and the blue from the sky up above
And if you color my world just paint it with your love

Two words i never thought would go together: Joanne Walker and 6:00 a.m.
Never mind that thats actually four words, five if you spell out meridiem. If your going to get technical your going to lose friends. The point is it was Oh God Early and i was not only up, but at work. Not even at work Volunteering my own precious sleeping time to be at work, five hourse before i was suppose to be at work . I was so noble i could kill my self.


The Protesters stopped close enough that i couldn count the individual silver hairs on the head of the man infront of me, who stood there, Right In My Personal Space.
People had gotten shot for less
