Featured Guest "Doug-O-Licious"

This weeks featured guest is Doug "DAWG" from Waking Ambrose...

I love Doug... okay, okay, okay I admit it...

Let me rephrase so Coop doesn't get upset...

I LOVE Doug's Blog!

He always makes me think... using words and finding "definitions" of the words... some words I have never heard of! I usually define the "word of the day" through a song... :) Glad he allows me to get away with that...

So... FELLOW BLOGGERS... Welcome our featured guest...

1) What song has truly inspired/touched you? (Name of Artist and Song please) Beside You, by Van Morrison

2) How did it inspire/touch/ or change you?
I got what poetry is for for the first time.

3) What is one thing you wish for the future generations? Fewer members.
4) What is one "Project"/ "Charity" that is dear to your heart? A project I'm working on to help people with disabilities create and webcast stories about their challenges.

Beside You
Van Morrison

Little jimmy's gone way out of the back streets
Out of the window, into the falling rain,
And he's right on time, right on time.
That's why broken arrow waved his finger
Down the road so dark and narrow
In the evening just before the sunday sixbells chime
And way out on the highway
All the dogs are barkin' way down below
And you wander away from your hillside retreated view
Went to wanderin' nordhbridge way out on the railroad
Together all the tipping trucks will unload
All the scrapbooks built together stuck with glue
And I'll stand beside you, beside you

Oh child, to never wonder why
To never, never, never, never wonder why at all
To never, never, never, never wonder why
It's gotta be, it has to be

Across the crystal pavements
Way across the country where the hillside mountains glide
The dynamo of your smile caressed the
Barefoot virgin child
To wander past your window in the nighttime cross the floor
Crying as ecstasy surrounds you
Through the night air your proud time is open
Go well against the pointed idle breeze

Past the footlights of the brazen silence easy
In the night you cry and you want spirits to tell you
Everything's alright
Go ahead and do it one more time baby
You're satisfied I guess, you're way up and the sky comes down

Open and just hold the lantern in the doorway,
For the freedom of it.
And you take the night air through your nostrils and you breathe
In out, in out
And you breathe just like that, just like that

How does it get you when it gets you
When it gets ya
You may not know it's got you until you turn around
And I'll point a finger at you, point a finger at you
You say which way, which way
That's alright, we've gotten hip to it
Goin' to do it right now.
Behind you
Beside you, beside you

Oh child to never wonder why
To never, never, never, never wonder why at all
Never never never never wonder why at all.

This song, Doug... simply beautiful and perfect for this project... Thank You my Dawg! :)

...and the music plays on!

If you think long and hard about it... music is a language that everyone speaks. Without divisions and barriers it brings us together as one. No matter what type of music you prefer... it is music. Wouldn't it be nice if we all could ride down the "Music Highway"... just to know that we, for one moment, could have a sense of togetherness?

WHY NOT have a "sense of togetherness"? It is so very true that music is a language EVERYONE speaks. This world has to much hate... So... Let us travel down a different highway... a highway of music... so we... for one moment can have a sense of peace... together. I started this project not knowing how well it would take off. Thanks to some wonderful bloggers... it has taken off beyond words. Click here for more info.
