there's a bluebird in my heart that
wants to get out
but I'm too tough for him,
I say, stay in there, I'm not going
to let anybody see
you.

Charles Bukowski

Hi Zee
Great words

I have been following your island stay with interest.

Maybe you can create a type of artist community over there in between work.

Anyone here are same lyrics for you from Peter Mayers “Blue Boat Home”. as i trust you find your “Blue Boat Home” over there!

"BLUE BOAT HOME"
Though below me, I feel no motion
Standing on these mountains and plains
Far away from the rolling ocean
Still my dry land heart can say
I've been sailing all my life now
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel
And the earth is my blue boat home

Sun, my sail, and moon my rudder
As I ply the starry sea
Leaning over the edge in wonder
Casting questions into the deep
Drifting here with my ship's companions
All we kindred pilgrim souls
Making our way by the lights of the heavens
In our beautiful blue boat home

I give thanks to the waves upholding me
Hail the great winds urging me on
Greet the infinite sea before me
Sing the sky my sailor's song
I was born upon the fathoms
Never harbor or port have I known
The wide universe is the ocean I travel
And the earth is my blue boat home

"BLUE BOAT HOME"
Words by singer/songwriter Peter Mayer

Aha - Bukowsky's lines touch a string in most of you. Thank you all for your feedback.
