Bloggin' along...and driving...and other sorts of movement.

This song came to mind this evening.

Driving along
You can see all the people
Who seem to have nothing to say to each other
Each day they grow farther and farther away from each other

Driving along
You can spot all the problems
On faces so tired of facing each other
Each day they grow farther and farther away from each other

Surely not? Surely it doesn't have to be that way, always?

Driving along at fifty seven thousand miles an hour
Look at those people standing on the petals of a flower
Look at those petals pumping for a little bit of power

Well, there is some truth to that. I like the parts about the flower power.

Driving along
You can see all the people
Who seem to have nothing to say to each other
Each day they grow farther and farther away from each other

Well, that's hardly accurate. Harry, you artist. The farther we go away from each other, the less we can see of each other!

Silly Harry.

They seem to say nothing
They seem to go nowhere
They seem to go farther
They seem to go nowhere
They seem to go farther
They seem to go nowhere
They seem to go farther
And farther and farther

We gotta work on that shit.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
