The Woman

Give me this credit--Do you not think I strive--To know myself? -John Keats

My Mind has been the most discontented and restless one that ever was put into a body too small for it. -Keats


In her heart, what every woman wants to be is some kind of goddess, I think--men pick up a ruined echo of that thought and try to put them on pedestals (A woman, who will pee down her own leg if she does not squat! Its funny when you stop to think of it)--but what a man senses is not what a woman wants. A woman wants to be in the clear, is all. To stand if she will, or walk...or drive. A man will not see that. He thinks a goddess wants to loll on a slope somewhere in the foothills of Olympus and eat fruit, but there is no god or goddess in that. All a woman wants is what a man wants--a woman wants to drive. -Stephen King


The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them - words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But, it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried when you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for the want of a teller but for the want of an understanding ear. --Stephen King

If any of you are interested in the guitar, or just interested in a grassroots movement to get a musician's work out there, you should take a gander at this site: www.MichaelTillman.com

Take a listen to the first clip of music he has on the homepage there, and join the forums or subscribe for three bucks a month to get his MP3s sent to you as he writes and arranges more music. There's also a great, GREAT arrangement of "Hey Jude" that's available in the forum. :D

But what the hell, I'll link you now so you can hear:

He does everything, from Elizabethan/Renaissance style classical guitar, to writing his own stuff, to arranging jazz and flamenco standards.

You can also join his Facebook fanpage here, if you wish: I created it for him to surprise him. ;)

Such as unconditional love and the aurora borealis, snow in Dallas is beautiful to me.
