Seeking the Dark Tower

On the path that eventually leads to the clearing in the woods, the Charyou Tree. Fraught with danger, fear and loss, and yet, fulfillment. Welcome.

how the sun sets

The sun sets all the same on any part of the world. Then again, not the same. Sometimes it's a devastating riot of colors off a craggy vista, rich with warm colors. Sharp. Sometimes it's a billowy bloom of candy floss infraradiant with the dying rays of the day. Warm, but soft this time. Sometimes its only a pale hint penetrating a overcast sky, sometimes nothing at all.

Sometimes you wonder, what's it like over there? How does the sun set there? Indeed, how does it set when you're atop a mountain, looking down as the sea of red clouds begin to settle down into the valleys oncemore for the night.

I wish I could see how the sun sets over there.

i've got to ramble

Babe, baby, baby, I'm gonna leave you.
I said baby, you know I'm gonna leave you.
Ill leave you when the summertime,
Leave you when the summertime comes a'rollin
Leave you when the summer comes along.

Baby, baby, I don't wanna leave you,
I ain't jokin' woman, I got to ramble.
Oh, yeah, baby, baby, I wont be there,
Really got to ramble.
I can hear it callin me the way it used to do,
I can hear it callin me back home.

Im sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
Ive got to be free, free to face the life thats ahead of me
On board, I'm the captain, so climb aboard
Well search for tomorrow on every shore
And Ill try, oh lord, Ill try to carry on

I know, I'll never leave you, baby.
But I got to go away from this place, I've got to quit you.
Ooh, baby,
Baby, ooh dont you hear it callin?
Woman, woman, I know, I know its good to have you back again
And I know that one day baby, its really gonna grow, yes it is.
We gonna go walkin through the park every day!
Its not goodbye!
