"Im a lonesome polecat. . . "

I like to sing, and I sing quite a bit, weather or not those around me want to hear it. At work today I was singing songs from Seven Brides. It made for fun times. Robbie is always singing at work too, and that is the main reason I feel comfortable doing so. I sing when Im happy. Its like smiling is not enough. If I sing, you can know that Im happy without looking at me.

I was trying to think of something more to say on the subject, but text just wont do. It just feels good to sing. I would sing for you but. . . how? And yes, I am fully aware of audioblogger, but I wouldn't be singing to you then, I would be singing to the phone and sounding like a fool, a fool forever immortalized on the internet. No thank you.

Did you know that the Middletown Public Library has audio and ebooks that you can totally download for free? You do have to sign up there, but you download at home. I just downloaded Dracula and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. VERY cool.

Well then, I've got lots of reading to do before I sleep. That reminds me of a poem by Robert Frost.

Anyway, I was saying Good Night.

We make ourselves a place apart
Behind light words that tease and flout,
But oh, the agitated heart
Till someone really finds us out.

'Tis pity if the case require
(Or so we say)that in the end
We speakd the literal to inspire
The understanding of a friend.

But so with all, from babes that play
At hide-and-seek to God afar,
So all who hide too well away
Must speak and tell us where they are

That is my favorite Robert Frost poem. . .or maybe his Mending Wall is. . .haven't quite decided yet.

Anyhow, the Rockford Carnegie Library has the same thing. I love audio books because of my long drives, but I can't stand ebooks they just don't feel like the real thing.
My favorite poet is William Blake in case you're interested.

Well, if you can only reveal so much of yourself in text. . .then you are more than welcome to call me if you want to. (I'll leave my phone number in your e-mail).
