New WordPress Version Joy Set Up

San Juan del Sur

What more could I ask for? What I am is more than I could dream up! Just look at myself. Take a look around. None of it I can completely understand. But all this is what I am. All this is what it is. A beautiful living being. A beautiful planet full of other beautiful […]

Only Moments Make Up a Life

August Moody here…. In moments we live and in every one there is truth But still, little do we know This life, be born in truth or spoof We must employ these moments to truly live and grow And this is all we have to share And in darkness we think we see ‘Tis little […]

Traveling and Unplanned Events

Joy and I are in Missouri visiting some of her family members: Robbie, her brother and his wonderful family in Osceola. Now we are visiting Lisa, her sister, farther up north, another very loving and welcoming bunch! So much to be told of Robbie, Laura, Phillip and Gordon. They have bought land and begun from […]

Art Chair

I think it is done: The Chair Art is such a many faceted endeavor. I enjoy it immensely while on the other hand it seems a huge, frivolous and totally unnecessary expenditure of time. The Chair is for sale, $1000.00. The sale of it, although creating a huge loss of something I have put my […]

Rolling Thunder Through an Open Window

With window open rain fell as if the night sky was playing a piece from its most loved composer, a master piece. The percussionist was at her best. I don’t believe I have ever heard thunder roll for so long and so magnificently. The long last ending seemed to rattle the window one last time […]

Corpus Christi was visited by Hurricane Dolly on the 23rd of July. It seemed as if it would never become much of a threat, especially for us. Just before it came ashore, Dolly moved a little more north than expected and for 24 hours the wind howled and it poured down rain off and on. […]

August’s Lament Related

The Enigma of Happiness

We want to be happy. Are you? What makes happiness so elusive? Is it for others only? Lucky ones? Strong ones? Selfish ones? Is it someone else’s fault if we are not? So often we find ourselves in a close relationship with others. It is human. It is popular. It can be wonderful.  It can […]

Staying Focused

I have quite a few thoughts to post. I am behind. For now, before I catch up, I will keep true to this blogs name, “Lyrical Life”. What would we do without the Moody Blues? Let this set of lyrics be a lead in to thoughts on keeping focused on your true life’s course, whatever that […]

A Few Words from August Moody

” If you find yourself alive, even if for a short time, live it up! And I don’t know of anyone who ever has more than a short time.” ” Remember that when you enjoy to mix in an equal portion of love, and visa versa. Don’t get too serious about one to forget the […]

These are a few quotes from the famous Zen Dreamer August Moody. They may become a regular feature. “For one to not be hypocritical in love one must love one’s self first.” “George, just quit. It would fit your image.” “The more you learn about hunger the more glad you are to be alive.” “Cars! […]
