  • Now you can live forever
    Now you can live forever

    A one-eyed cat
    Walks along the wall
    Looks ahead
    And sees it all

    Bless the moon
    That guides my way
    And leads green lizards
    To their grave

    In air so hot
    I can hardly breathe
    Escaped my past
    And found my peace

    In dark, deep caves
    Where snakes grow big
    That's where I learned
    How I want to live

    I'm alive

  • Mrs. Sydney from Ajijic Lake Chapala Mexicoyour music is deeply thoughtful with every element of passion
    moving this gran'ma musician to dance, write and sing
    want you to know, we have
    a life style song location, a physical site making senior age people weep with joy
    everyday i wake saying thank you God, you are so real here, i wanna'cry
    everything you sing hope for Catman, we have here... we made this world
    with our behavior and hearts and labor.... Ajijic Lake Chapala...a most unique
    english speaking environment.... a conscious decision not advertised anywhere
    just wanted to let you know... some of us maintain the innocent place
    and we love you.
