Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away

Whoah and I know a man, he came from my hometown
He wore his passion for his woman like a thorny crown
He said dolores, I live in fear
My love for you's so overpowering, I'm afraid that I will disappear

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away


I know a woman, (who) became a wife
These are the very words she uses to describe her life
She said a good day ain't got no rain
She said a bad day is when I lie in the bed
And I think of things that might have been

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away


And I know a father who had a son
He longed to tell him all the reasons for the things he'd done
He came a long way just to explain
He kissed his boy as he lay sleeping
Then he turned around and he headed home again

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away


Whoah God only knows, God makes his plan
The information's unavailable to the mortal man
We're workin' our jobs, collect our pay
Believe we're gliding down the highway, when in fact we're slip sliding away

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away

Slip sliding away, slip sliding away
You know the nearer your destination, the more you slip sliding away




kind of an odd song choice - but i like the feeling of slipping and sliding on smooth ice and smooth dance floors

Last week, when there was a full moon, and a lot of snow on the ground, and collllllllllllld - the reflection of the moon on the snow was particularly blue.

Not a blue moon - but blue because of the moon.

Lovely.

Well, I am glad my mind is still functioning. Yea!!

I went to the funeral service this aft of one of my great aunts. The Rev (also related) went down a long list of people attending (not by name) - grin - He mentioned the large number of grandchildren the lady had - 25 grandchildren, 30+ great grandchildren, 15 great great grandchildren and 3 great great great grandchildren. Busy people.

She was 96.

My mom turns 90 a week from now.

I think Patti is right - she tells me my relatives are all older than dirt.

Magginkat - 2 of the links you see when you use quote are the 'maps' to the two pix.
