When I find myself in times of trouble

Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

And in my hour of darkness

She is standing right in front of me

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Let it be, Let it be

Let it be, Let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when all the broken hearted people

Living in the world agree

There will be an answer, let it be

For though they may be parted

There is still a chance they will see

There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, Let it be

Let it be, Let it be

Yeah, there will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, Let it be

Let it be, Let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

And when the night is cloudy

There is still a light that shines on me

Shine on until tomorrow, let it be

I woke up to the sound of music

Mother Mary comes to me

Speaking words of wisdom, let it be

Yeah, let it be, let it be

There will be an answer, let it be

Let it be, Let it be

Let it be, Yeah, let it be

Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

 

THE BEATLES, 1969

Good Stuff you have going for you there Sully. I like" The Long and winding road"..from said named album. Smile

          Smile My mother passed away last Christmas and lately I have been dreaming about her. In one of my dreams she said she was going to go get me some money and we both walked out of her old house into a bright light. It was soo real!! I honestly believe that she is trying to help me because one of my fav pic3s fell 123, twice this week! Yes I believe in God and his goodness.

              I'm not saying God or some other higher power, but I believe there is another force in the universe that affects or influence peoples' lives. Just like gravity is there but you can't see it. Or dark matter.

                    All your concise thoughts have got me thinking.  Can I change my answer.?

                    I thought it might be G-d, but maybe its just the wickerman? And I prefer the more realistic, more sexy older X version.

                        In reality, It has nothing to do with GOD, or any  thing else except, being in the right place at the right time.

                        " LUCK " is the only denominator here....

                        " Lady LUCK " can be a sexy powerful tool but she also has her down side...

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            Its like the burning man.  But a lot less hippies.  Although I dont think anybody is meant to get killed at burning man. But yes its an effigy of sorts. 

                            I like the one better with Cage in it.  He seems more helpless.  Is more of a sacrifice of sorts.  Cages character was more of a wussy.  I mean the guy is afraid of bees.  Now I can understand the Japanese Giant Hornet. 

                            The actuall effigy at Burning Man is already pre determined and made of wood. 

                            The wicker man suggest its made of brambles, and bushes and yew.  More tendrils than actual wood.  Branches no doubt.

                              I got to thinking of a tribe from somewhere in the Pacific Islands that my Dad used to tell us about, saying what ballsy moves these guys would perform- apparently the males  would tie branches to their ankles * long before bungee was discovered or invented, take your pick, and they would hurl themselves off heights, sometimes hitting the ground with such force..well you get the picture. I guess this was a rite of passage. You mentioning Cage being a wuss. His point with these guys was, there are no cowards.Forget the name of this tribe though.
