Running Through My Mind

Some of the five of you reading may know that it's been a busy few weeks here. I more or less always have a soundtrack of quirky quotations and songs playing in my mind, and lately they seem very apt. So here you go, a peek inside my mind. (Be not afraid. I come in peace.)

Tyrone, you know how much I love watching you work, but I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder and Guilder to frame for it; I'm swamped.
—Prince Humperdinck, The Princess Bride

Why do we hurtle ourselves through every inch of time and space
I must say around some corner I can sense a resting place
With every lesson learned a line upon your beautiful face
We'll amuse ourselves one day with these memories we'll trace
—“Get Out the Map” by Indigo Girls

And, in quieter moments…

The world's on fire and
It's more than I can handle
I dive into the water
(I try to bring my share)
I try to bring more
More than I can handle
(Bring it to the table)
Bring what I am able
--“World On Fire” by Sarah McLachlan

But, most importantly,

Every baby deserves a healthy start!
