Everything Possible

We have cleared off the table, the leftovers saved,
Washed the dishes and put them away
I have told you a story and tucked you in tight
At the end of your knockabout day
As the moon sets its sails to carry you to sleep
Over the midnight sea
I will sing you a song no one sang to me
May it keep you good company.

CHORUS:
You can be anybody you want to be,
You can love whomever you will
You can travel any country where your heart leads
And know I will love you still
You can live by yourself, you can gather friends around,
You can choose one special one
And the only measure of your words and your deeds
Will be the love you leave behind when you're done.

There are girls who grow up strong and bold
There are boys quiet and kind
Some race on ahead, some follow behind
Some go in their own way and time
Some women love women, some men love men
Some raise children, some never do
You can dream all the day never reaching the end
Of everything possible for you.

Don't be rattled by names, by taunts, by games
But seek out spirits true
If you give your friends the best part of yourself
They will give the same back to you.

You can be anybody you want to be,
You can love whomever you will
You can travel any country where your heart leads
And know I will love you still
You can live by yourself, you can gather friends around,
You can choose one special one
And the only measure of your words and your deeds
Will be the love you leave behind when you're done.



Notes: This is a song by Fred Small, a UU from Littleton, MA. Mother sang this to me as a lullaby and it is my favorite lullaby. And Kent sang it at my Coming of Age. I've been humming the chorus recently and wanted the rest of the words. I was thinking Elizabeth might consider singing it to Elijah...

Here's a video of it. http://www.last.fm/music/Fred+Small/_/Everything+Possible

So, I have officially changed my journal to friends only. Mainly because I want to know who is reading. It's slightly scary that anyone can access it even if it isn't easy. I think if I am sure of who's reading I'll be able to put in ALL thoughts and censor myself less if at all. Then, this can become a full replacement for my word document journal for most things. Please don't hold me to things stated here. I am using it as a place to put my thoughts and feelings of the moment. I give them full permission to change and don't have a doubt that they will. I plan to keep all France posts in public and will leave many of the shorter posts in public. Will probably put some of the longer, more personal posts under friends only. Happy reading! I look forward to comments from those who continue to read.

I plan to write tomorrow. Write prolifically. Write about the Native American field trip. Write about last weekend. Write about the past week. Write more of Brita. Or write something new I'm inspired to.

I also plan to get through a lot of the small odds and ends that I have failed to do on my To-Do-List. Luckily, I can't think of any dragons to slay (or rather rehabilitate). Homework is at a minimum. Plans are at a minimum. Dogs, thank you letters, emails, files and others will hopefully be attended to.

We'll see how well I do. If I actually manage the writing goal, I'll see how many words I can write in a  day. I shall try to have fun!

And on the day formerly known as Columbus day I am seeing friends in Boston. That should be fun. Much games playing.

Busyness. Now Homework to do. Quite a bit actually. Today I attended an oppressive Yom Kippur service, practiced procrastinating and kything (very fun and good for my soul if not my sleeping schedule), helped with dinner prep, superb agility sessions with both dogs, Fabulous dinner, and miles to go before I sleep. Thank Goddess it's only 7:30.

I think I will soon set this journal to "friends only" just so I know who's reading and don't have to self-censor what I put in posts. If you do read regularly and don't have a livejournal account please get one. I think I'll reset it over next weekend. Thanks, Shaya

Okay, great agility session with Opie. Changed clothes since they got all wet from the wet grass and now to homework. Then dinner, backgammon, vacuuming, put in a laundry load now. All mundane stuff.

I did stretch, spend time with dogs, send in RT time sheet and work on the journal. So it's a start.

And  yes perhaps I wasn't being kind enough to myself. Thanks for the reminder, EG.

Hah, I have a third of the Native American post written. Be forewarned, it's long so I won't edit it. Now to agility first, than hw, then cleaning. Perhaps cleaning first since I need daylight. Love it when words flow through my fingers, really the easiest way to write.

I wish Elizabeth and Kiwi a good night and healthy thougths if I don't speak to either of  you again tonight.

Hopefully working on journal.

Brief natural high and influx of energy brought on from training responsive canines. Surprising, really because I didn't know sick Shaya could get natural highs. Apparently she can. This is good news!

8:05 Just got back from Rebecca's. Uh wow! Okay I have so much to type up, most going into my personal journal. And I haven't even made any progress on the field trip.

I do have homework and vacuuming but not the type of energy for either and the writing is more important to me. Plus, doing things when I have energy to be doing something else is rarely a good use of time.

8:56 Have not been able to write anything of worth. A short email or two which were decent  but nothing else! Guess I'll just find time tomorrow. Wonder if I'll end up going to Boston to see a friend with Mother, since Elizabeth is sick again. Poor Elizabeth. Wonder if I'll go to church. Apparently, Savta (Michael's mother, my grandmother) is helping with the toddlers so someone is probably going. That would be good for me spiritually I believe, but it would also mean I'd need to be diligent on homework, vacuuming and stretching and no filing onto computer. Course I could fit it all in if I really wanted to, but not sure if I do! 

Opal is in and waiting for dinner. I know, I know, this is way too late for them to eat. Guilty that I didn't work on agility.

I'm back from the Wampanoag sleepover trip. It was truly amazing! Lots of facts, fun, an immerison in the 1600s, a cute weaver guy, long spiritual discussion, and 40 minutes worth of Ms. Schultz talking about her Holocaust trip this summer.

Records:
I think I asked over 50 questions in 24 hours.
Spoke to 4 teachers and 1 guidance counselor (beyond a hi) in my 20 minute lunch period Thursday (needless to say I finished my lunch on the bus). Mrs. Cooper, Mr. Kraby, Mrs. Braverman, Ms. Fraser, Mrs. Steele. Some of the usual supsects but not all!
