While You Are Sleeping

While You Are Sleeping

Messages arrive
While you are sleeping.
Ignore them.
Would you rather
Wake up to a postman
Intruding at the door
Or to the dawn, sun
Silence and thoughts
From eons ago?
You’ve got mail.

Music for the Last Gasp of Summer: September

Earth Wind & Fire - September

Depending on where you are, September may or may not be the last gasp of summer.

But it is the name of the greatest piece of September music ever recorded.

Play September by Earth Wind & Fire.

The bell was ringing
Our souls were singing
Do you remember
Never a cloudy day

If you’re not moving, check your pulse, or have someone else check it for you (that can be fun).

Me? I’m out front, dancing among the flower and vegetable beds, in front of God and everybody. Who cares how it looks? It’s September.
