The Fishtown Lawsuit

Can we make a video?

The Fishtown lawsuit wants you all to sing along. (this page deleted)


The wheels on the bus go round and round
Round and round, round and round
The wheels on the bus go round and round
All through Fishtown.
(Roll hands over each other) 

The vipers on the bus go "Wish, wish, hiss,
Wish, wish, hiss, wish, wish, hiss"
The vipers on the bus go "Wish, wish, hiss"
All through the town.
(Extend arms together in front of you and 'wish' like vipers) 

The door on the bus goes "Shut, shut, shut,
Shut, shut, shut, shut, shut, shut"
The door on the bus goes Shut, shut, shut
All through the town.
(Cover eyes with hands on 'shut' and don't uncover them until the end of the song) 

The horn on the bus goes "Sue, sue, sue,
Sue, sue, sue, sue. sue. sue" 
The horn on the bus goes "Sue,sue, sue"
All through the town.
(Pretend to honk horn with eyes closed) 

The gas on the bus goes "The pot called the kettle black,
The pot called the kettle black, the pot called the kettle black"
The gas on the bus goes "The pot called the kettle black"
All through the town.
(Pretend to sit on your thumb with eyes closed) 

The money on the bus goes "Poof, poof, poof,
Poof, poof, poof, poof, poof, poof"
The money on the bus goes "Poof, poof, poof"
All through the town.
(Put money in cash box on bus with eyes closed) 

The baby on the bus says, "Conspiracy! Lights, camera, action!"
"Conspiracy! Lights, camera, action, Conspiracy! Lights, camera, action!"
The baby on the bus says, "Conspiracy! Lights, camera, action!"
All through the town.
(Stand straight, look straight with eyes closed) 

The people on the bus say, "Blush, blush, blush!
Blush, blush, blush, blush, blush. blush!
The people on the bus say, "Blush, blush, blush"
All through the town.
(Put pointer foot to mouth to 'Blush' with eyes closed) 

The mommy on the bus says, "FNA, fna, fna"
The daddy on the bus says, "I FACT you, too"
All through the town.
(Point to self on 'I', right middle finger over heart on 'love', and point it on 'you', open your eyes)

Memory of a Free Festival

David Bowie: In the Width of a Circle


One

I was born
one thread of the canvas
one brush stroke of the painting
one mask of the stage
one step of the dance
one letter of the written word
one syllable of the spoken word
one pixel of the photograph
one strum of the guitar
one word of the lyric
one note of the song
one voice of the singer
art, artist, rising, soaring, restoring all that's empty
restoration
art, artist, rising, soaring, restoring all that's empty
restoration
art, artist, rising, soaring, restoring all that's empty
restoration

God Has A Sense Of Humor

The Highway To Heaven

The meteorologist predicted heavy rain and thunder storms in Philadelphia for today. A huge storm front was moving up from across the country that covered much of the South and Central USA into the Northeast and beyond. The weather radar presented an ominous picture as it tracked the storm.
The lucky part was that our temperature would soar upward to 60 degrees Fahrenheit or 16 degrees Celsius. Thank goodness that it was not freezing weather or we would be buried in snow.
That huge storm somehow missed us altogether and it turned out to be a very beautiful day of rolling clouds.
I attended a family affair to celebrate a triple Christening in the early afternoon. We drove up Interstate 95 North which opens up the sky for all to see. It was a sight to behold. It's seldom to see such a display of clouds that stretched across the sky in any direction you look. Yes, I had my camera and took pictures as we rode the highway. Yes. I had my imagination in focus too.
I though it would be funny if God made us, the departed, drive a car on a highway to Heaven. It would give us pause to think about how we behaved on Earth while driving on a bumpy highway with road construction, traffic jams and detours to face our own judgement and God's final word.
This would be a road to carefully ride so not to crash into anything and safely complete our journey.
These are the pictures that drove my imagination.
