The Times They Are A-Changin'

Some people would do well to listen to these words...

And these...

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is
Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'.

There's A Place

There's a place online I can go where 'The Tick' and 'it's friends' don't go, I believe thus far they don't even know about it, a safe place for disabled people where I am welcomed and they aren't, should they find it and intrude upon it I have been told they wil be summarily uprooted. Its a safe haven for me from the mess which has been very useful to me and my saving grace at times. It helps me to take my mind off the mess and to regain my much needed sense of humor to be able to cope, and I am grateful to it. While it certainly has seemed that way at times, the bad guys don't in fact 'own' or monopolize the entire internet. I am finding that out and its nice. There are places I can go and I have found one and so, this blog entry's for you guys, thank you.
