faithless (?)

I've got my own moral compass to steer by
A guiding star beats a spirit in the sky
And all the preaching voices -
Empty vessels of dreams so loud
As they move among the crowd
Fools and thieves are well disguised
In the temple and market place

I don't have faith in faith
I don't believe in belief
You can call me faithless
I still cling to hope And
I believe in love
And that's faith enough for me

And that's faith enough for me

Rush, Faithless

cloud 9

Or was it No. 8?
Wasn't counting...

a month off

Was a much needed vacation.
Got a new Job.
My way is twisting forewards.

bar keep


One of the best times for a beer.

slip sliding away

And I know a father who had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things hed done
He came a long way just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and he headed home again

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away

An endless fire.


The best and worse feeling of them all.

"I miss you" – Therefore there is a “you” to miss. And there is a reason.

"I miss you" – Therefore you’re not here.

We are sometimes afraid to look at our reflections.
Scared of what we may find.
See something that we did not want to see,
Something that we try hard not to see.

To know who I am I must face my mirrors,
To do the things I want most I first have to deal with my reflections.

The easiest thing is to look away,
The bravest thing is to go along with them.

lost for words

When feelings get hold of me,
Throw me back and forth without warning,
I can go from yellow to blue in a heartbeat,
I can lose my words in the turmoil,
I sit and stare,
Letting the wind pass, reshaping my surface.

It seems that I can't control them, my feelings,
Even though sometimes I try.
And I shouldn't.

The wind is my friend.

life time

We're always so worried about time.
"How long will this take", "When did that happen?"...

Birthdays, anniversaries,
Watches, calendars.
All make us remember exactly when everything happened,
While the actual truth is that no matter how you try,
The best and worst moments of our life
Cannot be measured by time.


Funny enough, after writing this I've discovered that
this is my 100th post in 3 years of blogging.

15 (slow) seconds of glory

Must... Reach... Sea...


This turtle was found shot in the head, taken care of by wonderful people, and re-realesed to the ocean.
Sometimes we do good things.

juggle with fire

Fire juggling can be a dangerous thing.
You might get burnt.
You have to be concentrated the whole time.
You don't know if you will make it.
You don't know if the crowd will even like it.
Or at least appreciate it.

But all of these don't really matter,
if when the show is over you can say to yourself:

"I tried, I did it, I took another step".

banjo Joe

Banjo Joe,
Sitting in the sun,
Playing his banjo;
Is he happy when a coin drops?
Is he happy when a tune works?

beer zen

We sit on a wooden bench,
Scars decorate its brown surface.
A hot summer's day,
The air is humid, thick with thoughts.
Cold glass enters,
Filled with my favorite.
As I drink the air is lighter,
There is no beer.
Just me.

"And Moses lifted up his hand, and smote the rock with his rod twice: and water came forth abundantly, and the congregation drank, and their cattle."

So many decisions in the past month.
So many hard ones,
the most difficult ones I have ever made.
And the price paid was and still is very very high.

I never know if I made the right choice.
How could anyone?
What I feel and what I think battling endlessly in my head.
Never resting.
Always moving. Shifting. Changing.

Decisions come and go - and each time I'm still unsure,
Have I made the right choice? Is it good for me? Will it do good in the future?

Must be the player now, take responsibility for my actions and face the consequences.

all is happening

And I feel stationary.

Might be the holiday (Passover tonight),
Or just the need for security.

towers and flowers

You go blowing flowers in the wind, I'll go photographing towers.

Sometimes in all the turmoil around you,
you just want to sit down and gaze at the world.
Like stopping a rain-drop in mid-air,
while it's pouring rain.

Unbelievable silence. Amidst all the noise.

Then, when you go back to all the chaos,
it's like you've grown a hundred times in size.

something for nothing

Waiting for the winds of change
To sweep the clouds away
Waiting for the rainbows end
To cast its gold your way
Countless ways
You pass the days

Waiting for someone to call
And turn your world around
Looking for an answer to
The question you have found
Looking for
An open door

You dont get something for nothing
You dont get freedom for free
You wont get wise
With the sleep still in your eyes
No matter what your dreams might be

What you own is your own kingdom
What you do is your own glory
What you love is your own power
What you live is your own story
In your head is the answer
Let it guide you along
Let your heart be the anchor
And the beat of your own song

Rush, Something For Nothing
