Seal - Both Sides Now (Joni 75: A Joni Mitchell Birthday Celebration/Audio)

Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I've looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I've looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It's cloud illusions I recall
I really don't know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I've looked at love that way

But now it's just another show
You leave 'em laughing when you go
And if you care, don't let them know
Don't give yourself away

I've looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It's love's illusions I recall
I really don't know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say "I love you" right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I've looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I've changed
Well something's lost, but something's gained
In living every day

I've looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

I've looked at life from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It's life's illusions I recall
I really don't know life at all

Lenny Bruce is dead

It is in the icy cold death flow 2:04 PM Monday afternoon. It looks and feels like it is going to rain this afternoon.

I volunteered at the Book Nook today from 10 o'clock AM till 1 o'clock PM. The store was not busy so I wandered the store and read from a novel titled, 'Going Native' by Stephen Wright. I brought home from the Book Nook these two used books to add to our library-

'Lenny Bruce Is Dead' a novel by Jonathan Goldstein

'Macbeth' A Crime Thrill by Jo Nesbo

When I got home I ate lunch and wrote in my paper diary. Carol got home from doing errands the same time I got home from the Book Nook.

Amazon delivered to our front door a novel I had ordered titled, 'Revolutionaries' a novel by Joshua Furst.

I have nothing to do for the rest of the day but wait for it to end. Last night I barely remember right now. I do not remember much about last night. I just remembered Carol worked from 8 o'clock PM till Midnight AM. When she got home from work I was half asleep. I looked through the New York Times Sunday newspaper and listened to music before going to bed last night.

I might have made a video last night for my Youtube channel, but I am not sure right now.

This morning I read for morning worship from a book titled, 'The Path Of True Godliness' by Willem Teellinck Translated By Annemie Godbehere Edited By Joel R. Beeke. I will close to drift.
