The Wind

(this is what I'm listening to right at this moment. The rest of the time, Miranda Lee Richards is in heavy rotation.
Blowing you a kiss, Miranda!)

I listen to the wind
To the wind of my soul
Where I’ll end up well I think,
Only God really knows
I’ve sat upon the setting sun
But never, never never never
I never wanted water once
No, never, never, never

I listen to my words but
They fall far below
I let my music take me where
My heart wants to go
I swam upon the devil’s lake
But never, never never never
I’ll never make the same mistake
No, never, never, never

-Cat Stevens, when he wrote it. Now Yusuf Islam. née Stephen Demetre Georgiou.

did you know that yusuf supported the fatwa issued against salman rushdie? so much for the peace train.

the stitch, btw, owes much to a certain charm school, not just referrals.

of course, the more people who fall under the sway of the stitch, the closer i get to my ultimate goal...
