not easy being green


hello my ninnies and ning nongs

meanwhile i try to paint on and on

times running out and im trying to get a certain number done

i am also playing a doctor in a short film sometime somewhere

as well as all this other stuff and im losing track

thanks for the birthday wishes

theres two ways a looking at it

one is yer lucky to be alive so shut up about yer age

the other is

what a drag it is getting old

oscillating between these two things i go forward

59 years old …who woulda thunk it?

still writing my memoirs too

and all kinds of other things coming up

anyway thats it for now

i gotta keep on going here

love on ya forever

    Doctor, doctor give me the news… blue I can’t attend the sydney gig but I will reflect instead on the pacific blue stretching vastly away and uniting me n you – the sound drifting in on spring air with pearl encrusted hair… the reality is, there’s a history and geography excursion on. You must understand?

    59?! Surely not. You certainly don’t look it. When I met you last Saturday night for the first time, what struck me was your fierce intelligence, suffer no fools attitude, and great humour. I think you’re as old as you feel. If you live your life in a dynamic way, you will always feel vibrant. Age is somewhat irrelevant…until it starts making us incontinent…Happy birthday xx ps: Never did get you to sign your book at the festival…

    I turned 45 today. Still wishing I had been blessed with one percent of the creativity that Steven has. Yet still comfortable in my own skin.

    Belated birthday wishes SK.
    I still read TTB every day and love to hear how busy you are. I’m so sad about what’s happened to our band though.
    For the first time in my life I’m behind on a couple of your releases. The cost of paying for my lad to get through Uni is biting hard!! This means my Chrimble list is The Idyllist, plus the two new church DVD’s. Something for me to look forward to. Hi to Andy L, V and Holly too.
    Love you more,

    Oh dear, 59? Excuse me if I don’t sympathize, you young whipper snapper. Unless one of us croaks, you’ll always be 7 years younger than I am, and I have a birthday coming up too.

    I never thought I’d be alive
    To see the age of 65
    Saggy, baggy, naggy, hag
    Getting old is just a drag.


    And if that’s not enough to depress you, remember that we’ll never again be as young as we are today.

    Your Friend in Pennsylvania

    shake dreams from your hair
    my pretty child my sweet one

    choose the day and choose the sign of your day
    the day’s divinity

    first thing you see

    a vast radiant beach in a cool jeweled moon
    couples naked race down by its quiet side

    and we laugh like soft mad children
    smug in the wooly cotton brains of infancy

    the music and voices are all around us

    choose they croon the ancient ones
    the time has come again

    choose now they croon

    beneath the moon
    beside an ancient lake

    enter again the sweet forest
    enter the hot dream

    come with us…

    A belated happy birthday from me Steve.I’ve been a little slack in responding to your many posts. Time just gets away from one.
    I’ve purchased your lengthy super 8 and the future past perfect dvds.
    Thanks Rajani.I haven’t watched ’em yet. Gotta find the time.
    I don’t use facebook, but have noticed on the church facebook thingy that some folks are unable to play the dvds outside Australia.
    The solution is to get a pioneer dvd player.( there are probably other brands also).
    I order dvds from the US and the UK with no problems at all.

        Better hire a marketing dude for that one.
