The night calmly greets the trees

Bunny took this beautiful picture as we were walking home this evening :) The light looks beautiful streaming through the leaves as the rain begins to fall (I had my hands full of groceries) I don't like The Bachelor on ABC. Reality TV is an interesting psychological experiment, but to me the idea that a man would ask a woman to marry him after breaking up with the other woman competing for his love, then 3 months later break up with the woman he asked to marry him because he changed his mind and wanted to go back to the one he broke up with originally is ridiculous! There are people that are not fit for love - this guy is clearly one of them. People aren't like cars (which reminds me of a song I sang in 4th grade, but more on that later) that you can trade in when you don't like them anymore - well, to some people they are, but in reality nobody deserves to be treated that way. A relationship is a dynamic entity and needs to be worked on and not run away from or ended the minute things take any kind of turn. What kind of example is this man setting for his son? I hope that child sees the show someday and realizes his father is teaching him exactly how not to treat women. /rant.
The song I sang in 4th grade was called "Cars are Cars" by Paul Simon. We had to build car costumes and wear them and sing the song a Capella as a class for the school talent show - it was pretty terrible. But the song isn't bad and has a good message. And after that we got to sing Age of Aquarius so it was alright. Lyrics below - youtube link - Simon & Garfunkel. Cars are cars all over the world Cars are cars all over the world Similarly made. similarly sold In a motorcade. abandoned when they're old Cars are cars all over the world Cars are cars all over the world Cars are cars all over the world Engine in the front. jack in the back Wheels take the brunt. pinion and a rack Cars are cars all over the world Cars are cars all over the world But people are strangers They change with the curve From time zone to time zone As we can observe They shut down their borders And think they're immune They stand on their differences And shoot at the moon But cars are cars all over the world Cars are cars all over the world Drive 'em on the left. drive 'em on the right Susceptible to theft in the middle of the night Cars are cars all over the world Cars are cars all over the world I once had a car That was more like a home I lived in it loved in it Polished it's chrome If some of my homes Had been more like my car I probably wouldn't have Travelled this far Cars are cars all over the world
