Sunday Spirit

8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

I believe this video of Stevie Ray Vaughan was from his second appearance on Austin City Limits, after he had licked his drug and alcoholic demons, before dying an untimely death.  He was tryin’ to make it right, in his own unique way.



Caught up in a whirlwind can’t catch my breath

Knee deep in hot water broke out in a cold sweat

Can’t catch a turtle in this rat race

Feels like I’m losin’ time at a breakneck pace


Afraid of my own shadow in the face of grace

Heart full of darkness spotlight on my face

There was love all around me but I was lookin’ for revenge

Thank God it never found me would have been the end


(I was) walkin’ the tightrope steppin’ on my friends

Walkin’ the tightrope (it) was a shame and a sin

Walkin’ the tightrope between wrong and right

Walkin’ the tightrope both day and night


Lookin’ back in front of me in the mirror’s a grin

Through eyes of love I see I’m really lookin’ at a friend

We’ve all had our problems that’s the way life is

My heart goes out to others who are there to make amends


We’ve been walkin’ the tightrope tryin’ to make it right

Walkin’ the tightrope every day and every night

Walkin’ the tightrope bring it all around

Walkin’ the tightrope from the lost to found


Walkin’ the tightrope stretched around the world

Walkin’ the tightrope save the boys and girls

Walkin’ the tightrope let’s make it right

Walkin’ the tightrope do it do it tonight

Walkin’ the tightrope

  1. For some reason I lost track of you. So glad you've got a new site here on wordpress!

    LOVE the photos of Arizona. I spent time in Scottsdale last year and loved it! We'll go back this year as well.

  2. Kanani!

    I've been meaning to let you know I changed my blog a bit. Same url, but different feeds, as it is now hosted on GoDaddy. I'm glad you tracked me down. Thank you!

    Scottsdale was wonderful as always! Great weather this time of year, pleasant without being an oven. And there is always so much going on! It is incredible how much life is there, compared to Toledo.

    If you go this year, I can recommend 3 restaurants: the Cowboy Ciao I blogged about, Arcadia Farms, and Carlos Santana's Maria Maria in Tempe. Let me know what you think if you go to any of them.
