featuring :

        "ALL THE WAY" 

When somebody loves you

It's no good unless he loves you all the way

Happy to be near you

When you need someone to cheer you all the way

 

Taller than the tallest tree is

That's how it's got to feel

Deeper than the deep blue sea is

That's how deep it goes if it's real

 

When somebody needs you

It's no good unless she needs you all the way

Through the good or lean years

And for all the in between years come what may

 

Who knows where the road will lead us?

Only a fool would say

But if you'll let me love you

It's for sure I'm gonna love you all the way, all the way

 

Taller than the tallest tree is

That's how it's got to feel

Deeper than the deep blue see is

That's how deep it goes if it's real

 

And when somebody needs you

It's no good unless she needs you all the way

Through the good or lean years

And for all the in between years come what may

 

Who knows where the road will lead us?

Only a fool would say

But if you'll let me love you

It's for sure I'm gonna love you all the way, all the way

I'm gonna love you all the way

"All the Way" is a song published in 1957 by Maraville Music Corporation. The music was written by Jimmy VanHeusen with lyrics by Sammy Chan

                    by Charles Bukowski 

If you’re going to try, go all the way.

Otherwise, don’t even start.

If you’re going to try, go all the way.

This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs and maybe even your mind.

It could mean not eating for three or four days.

It could mean freezing on a park bench.

It could mean jail.

It could mean derision, mockery, isolation.

Isolation is the gift.

All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it.

And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds.

And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

If you’re going to try, go all the way.

There is no other feeling like that.

You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire.

DO IT. DO IT. DO IT. All the way

You will ride life straight to perfect laughter.

It’s the only good fight there is.

Go ALL THE WAY

All The Way Y 'All :
from A to Z
from beginning to end
with heart & soul
wholly ultimately utterly
to the nth degree
to the max
to the limit
to the end
in full in entirety in all
altogether absolutely
unconditionally
quite thoroughly
completely 

& most indubitably

                                         What makes a

                          king out of a slave? Courage!

                What makes the flag on the mast

             wave? Courage! What makes the

      elephan charge his tusk in the misty mist,

    or the dusky dusk? What makes the muskrat

    guard his musk? Courage! What makes the

    sphinx the seventh wonder? Courage! What

     makes the dawn come up like thunder?

        Courage! What makes the Hottentot so

              hot? What puts the "ape" in apricot?

                    What have they got that I ain't

                                               got?

       ANYWAY

                                          by Matt Turley

I had dreams for you

So many

More than you could have lived anyway

Should I have had fewer?

Would that have made this easier?

Maybe you were the first person

ever to fulfill all of her dreams

ahead of schedule.

And so why stick around?

Would that make this easier?

Why does this need to be easier?

Could it be any harder?

Maybe it could be, except for that I did something right

Which has made it easier than it could have been.

Why does it matter?

Could I still have my dreams for you?

I suppose they were my dreams anyway,

So maybe it’s up to me if I still want them.

Sometimes I still want them.

You were gonna be great.

Actually, you were great.

Could you have been greater, with more time?

I don’t think so.

Anyway...

 

She screamed “I have so many dreams for you!” when she learned of Alexandra’s brain condition. Then she collapsed on the floor in the ICU hallway. She did not say “I had so

many dreams for you!” because she did not realize the finality of the situation. She still had hope.Now she has none. What dreams could she have now, except maybe to not die

tomorrow from despair?

                                " Kris - I have been
                meaning to comment ever since your
           first post. It's all amazing, inspiring, 
thought-
      provoking, laugh-out-loud funny, brings tears-to-my-eyes            poignant. The photos of departed Guemians really got me.
  Thank you for sharing all of it. ... Keep doing
what you're doing.
    I especially enjoy your love of color and your song references.          Some of your stream of consciousness writing could have
         come from my own head, only you do it way better than I.
                    Thank you for your fearlessness.
                                                - Holly."
