Eagles
1994

It’s just another day in paradise
As you stumble to your bed
You’d give anything to silence
Those voices ringing in your head
You thought you could find happiness
Just over that green hill
You thought you would be satisfied
But you never will-
Learn to be still

We are like sheep without a shepherd
We don’t know how to be alone
So we wander ’round this desert
And wind up following the wrong gods home
But the flock cries out for another
And they keep answering that bell
And one more starry-eyed messiah
Meets a violent farewell-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

Now the flowers in your garden
They don’t smell so sweet
Maybe you’ve forgotten
The heaven lying at your feet

-solo-

There are so many contridictions
In all these messages we send
(we keep asking)
How do I get out of here
Where do I fit in?
Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin’
It’s waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still

You just keep on runnin’
Keep on runnin’

Nothing

quite like a bit of sobriety and a touch of karezza

Hey I got an idea!
How about a novel? Nice love story...they meet....they seperate, many trials and tribulations....find each other.....and live happily ever after
Barbara Kingsolver likes biology and wrote a great book on sex (Prodigal Summer)
or a Romance novelist like Diana Gabaldon and just get her to throw some karezza scenes and orgasm fallout stuff into the mix
or we we could Wiki Up and do it here!

OK

We entice the guys like any good ad wo/man.....with sex
First line: She stepped out of the shower and toweled the glistening water down her long silky legs. Thinking of him, she started......"
Get 'em hot, let the wankers have at it, and then show em the hangover, get em to feel it in themselves....maybe even have a layered story, like Woody Allen does....the story and a reader reacting to the story.
So author Marnia, ya still think I should do this? Writing is torture for me. This post has taken 20 minutes to write. There are people who have lived their whole lives with the Great American Novel inside of them. Let's find one and get a karezza twist (new dance?) into it.

"I think the ladies wouldn't like it unless they got it first."
I don't understand.....
I'm gonna send Barbara Kingsolver an email if this ever takes any more form.
