Float

As fond as I am of making a short story long, this shall be a relatively brief post for a change.

I’m going to step back from blogging and the blogosphere for the time being. I have some health issues that keep compounding themselves and I am discovering that dealing with them is taking all my energies and efforts. The dialysis is not working as well as hoped and now I’m going through six months of drug therapy to squash a so called pre-cancerous condition.

So, I’m going to float for a while and remove myself from all the sturm and drang that we get caught up in on a daily basis and concentrate on healing.

I’ll miss you guys a lot more than you’ll miss me, so I probably won’t be able to resist a peek now and then when I have a good day.

Hopefully, I’ll be back in the Spring, meaner than before.

Keep yer fingers crossed for me.


Float lyrics
drank away the rest of the day
wonder what my liver’d say
drink, thats all you can
blackened days with their bigger gales
blow in your parlor to discuss the day
listen, that’s all you can

chorus:
ah but don’t, no don’t sink the boat
that you built, you built to keep afloat

sick and tired of what to say
no one listens anyway
sing, that’s all you can
ramblin’ years of lousy luck
you miss the smell of burnin’ turf
dream, that’s all you can

chorus

singled out for who you are
it takes all types to judge a man
feel, that’s all you can
filthy suits with bigot ears
hide behind their own worst fears
live, that’s all you can
it’s all you can
it’s all you can…do

no matter where i put my head
i’ll wake up feeling sound again
breathe, it’s all you can
tomorrow smells of less decay
the flowers greet this bloomin’ fray
be thankful, that’s all you can

chorus

a ripe old age
that’s what i am
a ripe old age
just doin’ the best i can

  1. I’ll miss your writings, Flower, but I can understand the need to take some time off. Hope you rejuvenate quickly and get back to rousing the rabble again. Get well, be well, stay well.
