Come away with me
And I will sing you a song
with me on a bus
Come away where they can't tempt us
With there lies
I want to walk with you
On a cloudy day
fields where the yellow grass grows
So won't you try to come
Come away with me and we'll kiss
On a mountain
Come away with me
And I'll never stop loving you
And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
I'm safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me." -

"I do believe in magic. I was born and raised in a magic time, in a magic town, among magicians. When
I was twelve, the words was my magic lantern, and by its green spirit glow I saw the past, the present, and into the future.
We all start out knowing magic. We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing
to birds and read the clouds and see out destiny in grains of sand. But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls.
We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out. We get put in the straight and narrow and told to be responsible.
Told to act our age. Told to grow up, for Gods sake. And you know why were told that? Because the people doing the telling
were afraid of our wilderness and youth, and because the magic we knew made them ashamed and sad at what they allowed to whither
in themselves. After you get so far away fro it, though, you cant really get it back. You can have seconds of it. Just seconds
of knowing and remembering. When people get all weepy at movies, its because in that dark theatre, the golden pool of magic
is touched, just briefly. Then they come out into the hard sun of logic and reason again and it dries up, and theyre left
feeling a little heartsad and not knowing why. For the briefest of instants, you have stepped into the magic realm. The truth
of life is that every year we get farther away from the essence that is born within us. We get shouldered with burdens, some
of them good, some of them not so good. Things happen to us. Loved ones die. People get in wrecks, and get crippled. Its not
hard to do, in this world of crazy mazes. Life itself does its best to take that memory of magic away from us. You dont know
its happening until one day you feel like youve lost something, but youre not sure what it is." -Robert McCammon
"Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in a square hole, the
ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.You can quote them,
disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them, because they change things.
They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are
crazy enough to think they can change the world, and are the ones who'll do it." - Apple Computer TV Ad
