Sunday Night Soulfood: Lilacs , Green Tea and Walt Whitman...


*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
It is Sunday Afternoon....I finished sweeping, cleaning the frig,taking the trash out. and brushing the critters. I am making Green Tea Sun Tea and Homemade Pizza for dinner.....and I trimmed my Ancient Lilac Tree ( bush) by the porch....and then I took a break to watch the Indians play the Yankees ( don't ask).....And then I took a break and listened to this great music that Will"take no prisoners" hart reccommended , songs that are sung by another Redhead, Neko Case, she sounds Canadian or from the Northwest....anyways click the title and enjoy......the Song is "Hold On, Hold On".

( by the way I stayed up way too late reading Walt Whitman last night, I was looking for a poem about trees, but I became very distracted....very....holy cow ...Have you ever read him? I mean Really read him ??? he really was a very sexy writer....how did I miss That....? I never did find the Tree poem....oh well....)

Hope you had a Good Sunday.....

It is my curse to remember distracting details ... such as, that Bill gave Monica a copy of "Leaves of Grass" which was very hurtful to Hillary because that was the book he first wooed her with in college. Later I read somewhere that he was known to have given it other women too. I won't let it wreck Whitman for me, though.

Did you ever see "Beautiful Dreamers" with Rip Torn as WW? OK, I will slink away now.

I remember the Bill/Monica Leaves of Grass thing. What a skunk he was.

I did study Whitman in college but it was so long ago and I was such a callow, shallow young thing then, that I probably didn't appreciate him. Will have to dig out "Leaves of Grass" and give it a new read!
