work for the cure of pain
in everyone, for we all
have at least some,
exaggerated in our minds,
and may think we walk alone...
llp - mar'09

Current Residence: Southern NH, just down the street from the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center where i worked through the 70s before getting fired and barred for life from my career for participating in the 'PATCO strike of August 1981', [google it if you're curious]. i loved that job. Pres Reagan terminated 12,000 of us with a knee jerk stroke of his pen.

along with the greed
a hunger for power

  one deserves many-multiples-more than those 'other people'

Well I just feel ridiculous not having put you on my devWatch all of these years - till now! :ohmygod:

well, thank you, Jade!  however,
i'm definitely an acquired taste,
and pretty contrary too, you'll
find. ;)

and actually. though i'd noticed
you on occasion, i'd never had
room when you happened to
pop up, until now - there!

i notice your eclectic taste in 
music.  i've been listening to -… -
this morning.  he and John,
he two inventive geniuses in
that foursome.

:) pip

:giggle: There are those who might say the same about me when it comes to acquired taste. Wink Razz

You didn't have room -- for lil ol' me? But I take up such a small space. Tiny Butterfly- Animated little brown puppy

I'm glad you notice that my taste in music is eclectic -- it is indeed!  But how did you come to find that out about me? Oh wait, I bet you noticed the four youtube widgets on my page.  That would give you a clue.  Some of my poetry have youtube links of music that had inspired me when I wrote those pieces, like "Kitchen Blues", and "Clair de Lune".  Btw, I agree about what you say about George & John.  Also, I've got just about all of George's music, and John's as well, come to think of it.  When I get the chance, I'll send you something to listen to.

To see what nice thing you've been accused of doing (and who else is being recognized), find the widget by the same name on my profile page!

Helpful hint:  It's above the Stamp Box of Doom!

Have a wonderful rest of your day!
