Rays of sunshine

Some days you wake up and you see things in a different light
This morning was one of those mornings ....

I like riding my bicycle...

" I wasn't born so much as I fell out
Nobody seemed to notice me
we had a hedge back home in the suburbs
Over which I never could see.
I heard the people who lived on the ceiling
Scream and fight most scarily
Hearing that noise was my first ever feeling
That's how it's been all around me"

Lost in the supermarket

Release them...

Whooah bite! Whooah bite!
Release the bats
Release the bats
Don't tell me that it doesn't hurt
A hundred fluttering in your skirt
( Don't tell me it doesn't hurt )

The Birthday Party

Effort and it's reward

The important thing .... is not to win, but to take part.
The important thing in life is not the triumph,but the struggle.
The essential thing is not to have conquered,but to have fought well...
Pierre De Coubertin
