Words help communicate with the odd world residing outside our head.  As I think, it is. 




Tristan da Cunha- 37.08 S, 12.28 W - South Atlantic Ocean

“Singer songwriters are artists.  Their work is subjective, guided and misguided.  It is personal, and you do not have to explain to me whose words n songs we love and why.”  Howard Boatman

In personal optical delusion of consciousness, limited in time and space,

restricted to experiencing self in thought and feeling, but we can love, oh yes we can love and embrace

all that is before us in , or not.  


Read up on some boatman words, wonder words, flood of thought and teardrop thoughts, nice and easy. 

Then you can relax some with colonel parker, and maybe relax a little less with bubble thoughts


But, then you had “Better sit down kids.  I’ll tell you why, kids.  You might not understand, kids. 

But give it a try, kids.  Now how should I put this.  I’ve got something to say.”  Sonny Bono


I’ve got something to say kids, in ://A<)l>d)x(o<u<^>s/ .

Our body life is staying.  But our minds are going away.  No, we’re not mad kids.  It’s hard to say why. 

Our body and mind, don’t see eye to eye.  We think we don’t want this, while we think thinking is free.

But these sometimes things happen, and we just refuse to foresee. 


You might not like it.  Thought conditioning and mass/self narco-hypnosis can be, maybe are, more efficient means of control than clubs and bullets and prisons.  Man’s perverse lust for power insanity can be, maybe is, better satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude, rather than trying to kick them into obedience.  Many religions seem to unwittingly profess a similar view, and it may be right.  You might not like it, but nobody is asking. 


Maybe it’s time for a break, get a little rest.  ‘We’d like to know a little bit about you for our files.  We’d like to help you learn to help yourself.  Look around you, all you see are sympathetic eyes.  Stroll around the grounds until you feel at home.


Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon.  Going to the candidates debate.  Laugh about it, shout about it, when you’ve got to choose, ev’ry way you look at it, you lose.’  Paul Simon, 1968, on the Bookends album by Simon & Garfunkel, song awarded Grammy for Record of the Year in 1969. 


We all stroll around the grounds.  Howard Boatman

Can you judge a man, by the way he wears his hair? 

Can you read his mind, by the clothes that he wears?
Can you see a bad man, by the pattern on his tie?


Could you tell a wise man, by the way he speaks or spells? 

Is this more important, than the stories that he tells?
And call a man a fool, if for wealth he doesn't strive?


Can you condemn a man, if your faith he doesn’t hold?

Say the colour of his skin, is the colour of his soul?


Could you say that men, for king and country all must die?

Oh, Mr, you’re a better man than I.  Yeah, Mr, you’re a better man than I.


“Your’re A Better Man Than I”  B. Hugg and M. Hugg
