John and Me

It was a long, winding drive but I said good-bye to Yosemite and arrived in Reno last night. I’m catching up with family and friends and getting dog therapy from two darling Brittanys. I listened to John Denver’s music while in Yosemite and he summed up my thoughts better than I can, so I’ll leave it to him.

On the road of experience, I’m trying to find my own way.

Sometimes I wish that I could fly away

When I think that I’m moving, then suddenly things stand still

I’m afraid ‘cause I think they always will

And I’m looking for space

And to find out who I am

And I’m looking to know and understand

It’s a sweet, sweet dream

Sometimes I’m almost there

Sometimes I fly like an eagle

And sometimes I’m deep in despair

All alone in the universe, sometimes that’s how it seems

I get lost in the sadness and the screams

Then I look in the center, suddenly everything’s clear

I find myself in the sunshine and my dreams

On the road of experience, join in the living day

If there’s an answer, it’s just that it’s just that way.

When you’re looking for space

And to find out who you are

When you’re looking to try and reach the stars

It’s a sweet, sweet sweet dream

Sometimes I’m almost there

Sometimes I fly like an eagle

But sometimes I’m deep in despair

Sometimes I fly like an eagle,

like an eagle

I go flying, flying…

And if you want to hear the real thing, listen on youtube…
