I have been St. Stephen

Saint Stephen with a rose
In and out of the garden he goes
Country garland in the wind and the rain
Wherever he goes the people all complain

Stephen prosper in his time
Well he may and he may decline
Did it matter? does it now?
Stephen would answer if he only knew how

Wishing well with a golden bell
Bucket hanging clear to hell
Hell halfway twixt now and then
Stephen fill it up and lower down
And lower down again

Lady finger dipped in moonlight
Writing `what for?' across the morning sky
Sunlight splatters dawn with answers
Darkness shrugs and bids the day goodbye

Speeding arrow, sharp and narrow,
What a lot of fleeting matters you have spurned
Several seasons with their treasons
Wrap the babe in scarlet covers call it your own

Did he doubt or did he try?
Answers aplenty in the bye and bye
Talk about your plenty, talk about your ills
One man gathers what another man spills

Saint Stephen will remain
All he's lost he shall regain
Seashore washed by the suds and the foam
Been here so long he's got to calling it home

Fortune comes a crawlin, Calliope woman
Spinning that curious sense of your own
Can you answer? Yes I can,
but what would be the answer to the answer man?

I give you the most inconclusive day ever

I am writing this post as a conclusion to my day:

I went to the dollar store, they didn't have want I was looking for
I went to get my oil changed, they said come back at 1
I came back at 1, and they told me they had already filled my spot, after I waited 45 min
So, I went to the bank, after not getting my oil changed, around 1:45
The bank is closed from 1:30 to 2:30 on fridays
I came back to my apartment to take a nap
Some guys are pressure washing the side of the building (I cant sleep)

so i wrote this.

will someone please tell me what the hell is going on I must have missed?

yeah, this is pretty much, bitch, bitch, bitch, oh well...

(Posted later in the day):

Now I went to get my laundry out of the laundry room. It seems today, they decided to lock the door. So, I promptly begin to break into the cheap lock on the door. As I am breaking in, out of uniform, my boss walks through this particular secluded building at the military school I work at, and tells me I am not allowed to break in. It seems like that was his only purpose in walking through the building. That's when I started laughing.

Rainbow Emergency Management Assembly- Waveland, Mississippi

Went to Waveland to help with the families kitchen. Met some new friends there, some with the family, some not. Anyone who wants printable pictures(larger, cleaner) leave a comment indicating which pictures you want with your e-mail address and I will get them to you. Here are the pictures:

Jesse, cool christian brother.
Maurey= Awesome
He didn't want his picture taken. Helped me with a spiritual understanding of fear being the opposite of love, instead of anger. All the way from SoCal.

Leviticus with cigarette. Likes to wave sage in crowds at music festivals.
Clovis and his sister, both really phriendly pholks.

Arjay and others. Wished I could have spent more time with this group. But the only thing that was constant other than change was work.

Two kids from youth initiative school in Wisconsin. Really cool, self sufficient, 16 years old.

This guy came from wisconsin. His sister knew clovis from organic valley. He read alot.
Our food was really, really good.
These two brothers(above) are some road dogs I gave a ride from meridian to waveland. They were interesting pholks. They had been hitchiking for 18 days when I picked them up. Luckily, they had gotten a shower the night before I showed up.

This was actually north of the I-11 causeway near lake pontchartrain, when I made my day trip to New Orleans to help open a new kitchen (which didn't actually materialize). Yes that is a picture of several houses. Took a little night visit to Bourbon Street. It was actually up and running, even though the rest of the city was empty. About 40% of the shops and bars were open. There were help wanted signs everywhere. Got tanked, good times.
