How appearances change

Periodically I like going through old journal entires and rereading them.

This one caught my eye: http://halloranelder.livejournal.com/25821.html

It includes three photo's from two separate visits of Raymond Feist (the author). The first two were taken in 1998, while the last one was taken in 2002 just before the entry was written. Comparing my face in the two photos shows how much weight I gained in the intervening four years (I'm the guy without the goatee in these photos).

I think now I'm weighing less than I did in the 1998 photos.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
