This beautiful song has always spoke a gentle message of our true hearts' desire...and, it is an honour to have the opportunity to express my appreciation to Joni Mitchell and her musicians for the many years of deep heartfelt emotions we all share in a very personal way. Thank you for telling the stories of our lives. I just discovered that I failed to give credit to you on the actual video..by mistake...So, I take this opportunity to personally, thank you♥

Since arriving to this community, I have discovered what a truly small world it is when it comes to the matters of our hearts, each other, and great music. Thank you to ~caseypons~ for telling me about the climbers on Mt. Hood in Oregon. It is my song and my prayer that these folks could find their way and come in from the cold...but, I do know that if it be that they do not come to their earthly home, that they are in the loving warm arms of Our Father.
May our thoughts and prayers be with them and their families. And, to so many others who are experiencing difficult times.

My other inspiration is my friend, Phyllis ~Layla0416~ a dear friend from many days gone by ...such an amazing thing to find an ole friend..and, she is responsible for many of the photos in this video..including the photos of the twin albino deer...they have been coming to these folks house since little does....but, always came at dark..on this day they came out at 10:00 in the morning..what a magical moment to get to see them..and, this is great their image appeared first..

My other inspiration is my daughter, Sarah is coming back from Oregon tomorrow, January 5, 2010...and, I know exactly where her heart is right now...She loves Oregon and, she loves us...which way to go? Let God be her guide...

The image of the blue moon with the wolf howling at the moon was taken on New Years Eve at midnight..2010..a gift from me to each of you....a kind of howling at the moon gathering..;-)

Come On In From The Cold, Sarah Marie♥ Got some Home Sweet Home Love for you♥

I hope each of you have a very blessed healthy inspired new year filled with much peace, hope, joy, love and the strength of God to see us through the not so good days..

The lyrics blow me away everytime..a true classic in my heart..

Lyrics:

Back in 1957
We had to dance a foot apart
And they hawk-eyed us from the sidelines
Holding their rulers without a heart
And so with just a touch of our fingers
I could make our circuitry explode
All we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(we were so young)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

We really thought we had a purpose
We were so anxious to achieve
We had hope
The world held promise
For a slave to liberty
Freely I slaved away for something better
And I was bought and sold
And all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(we were so sure)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

I feel your leg under the table
Leaning into mine
I feel renewed
I feel disabled
By these bonfires in my spine
I don't know who the arsonist was
Which incendiary soul
But all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(you were so warm)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

I am not some stone commission
Like a statue in a park
I am flesh and blood and vision
I am howling in the dark
Long blue shadows of the jackals
Are falling on a pay phone by the road
Oh all they ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(I was so low)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

Is this just vulgar electricity
Is this the edifying fire
(it was so pure)
Does your smile's covert complicity
Debase as it admires
(just a flu with a temperature)
Are you just checking out your mojo
(oohoo)
Or am I just fighting off growing old
(just a high fever)
All I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(it was so pure)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

I know we never will be perfect
Never entirely clear
(when the moon shines)
We get hurt and we just panic
And we strike out
Out of fear
(you were only being kind)
I fear the sentence of this solitude
200 years on hold
(for my loving crime)
Oh and all we ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(when the moon shines)
Oh come in
Come in from the cold

When I thought life had some meaning
Then I thought I had some choice
(I was running blind)
And I made some value judgments
In a self-important voice
(I was outa line)
But then absurdity came over me
And I longed to lose control
(into no mind)
Oh all I ever wanted
Was just to come in from the cold

Come in
Come in from the cold
(you were so kind)
Please come in
(so kind)
Come in from the cold
Come in come in
Come in from the cold, etc.
