    That’s good news for you sk, don’t worry if baby sk seems a little grumpy at first, remember she has travelled a LONG, LONG way to get back to daddy, I’m sure there’ll be lots of big hugs and kisses from her (and the other of course!)

    My Abby B arrives back from his two month stay in India just before my birthday. He had his birthday while he was there, so we’ll celebrate together!

    His uncle, Sonu, the Indian version of Elvis….you’d think he has enough ego to block my sun. But no, such a humbly guy he is.

    It will be so wonderful to have all your girls back in your arms again. They will be so glad to be home.

    Enjoy “Neverwhere” – I loved it. I think you’d like “Stardust” too – lovely faery tale, I was so sad when it ended – I wanted it to last forever….

    a friend of mine has five daughters….whole
    lotta estrogen goin on…I grew up with only women in the home….I think THAT kinda thing has MORE impact that what fucking moronic sign you are born under…I’m a cancer for fuck sake…if I believed that deeply in what astrological sign I was
    and what it meant about me as a person…if i put that much thought into it.. I’d be dead or in an asylum….”oh…what sign are you? ….”I’m a libra, and you?” …”I’m a cancer”…”Oh”….
    Geez killa…environment has alot more to do with it than our “engineers of society” give credit..

    slowly sifting out the rest
    laughter and cries
    time beings
    shape themselves into winking eyes and expanding smiles

    tired.. winded
    flying o’ er and across the universe..
    and all the fairy tales in the land are wagging..

    Hi sk,

    Hope your hand’s better. Just wanted to say that I love Mimesis. What a masterpiece. Space rock at its finest. Well done everyone involved and you speak so eloquently. Is that how you talk to the band during argy bargy?

    Whatever the new secret project is, if it’s anything like M we’re in for a treat.

    Back to universal love. I love the vegetarian rock stars who love the entire animal kingdom. Thanks Steve Kilbey, Paul McCartney, Morrissey, Moby, Chrissie Hynde, Jeff Beck, Joan Jett, Tom Scholz, Geezer Butler, Daniel Johns (I think) and Annie Haslam. There are many others but I accentuate these people for their unconditional love for nonhuman animals. Steve’s love for his kids is wonderful. I dig my cat ! Ted Nugent (Kill It And Grill It) is an ……!

    the hellbound heart
    should be heaven
    to love twice
    as much as most people do
    find your way into the deep sea
    by the pale moon beams
    awash in the bliss
    drowning is quite a way to go
    I remember this beautiful agony
    in dreams
    pain of what you think you’ll lose
    release into the
    drink in the endlessness
    of how deep your loves
    and how vast your burning heart
    quenched by the thirst
    for more
    can you have both
    can you choose one
    did your heart ask you
    or does it just Love
    as it was made to
    did it chose both
    before you even met
    the eyes of your Lovers

    When is this blog gonna stop? Or have you changed your mind about the May date? Anyway we have been lucky. Maybe you can get the other guys to take over and give you a rest, guest blogsters Marty, Peter, Tim.

    Have a good weekend.
