and now the sun's coming up / i'm riding with lady luck / freeway, cars and trucks / stars beginning to fade / and i lead the parade (tom waits)
i don't really have both feet on the ground right now. not even one i fear. so it's all just a little bit off with the fairies for me as agnes kain sings in one of my favorite songs. i loved that part of the lyrics from the moment i first heard it and i didn't even really know the meaning. sometimes i feel like in one of those funny wolf haas books where the leading character always has the line of a song in his mind and it always tries to tell him something. "off with the fairies" is an australian phrase and it means something like "daydreaming" or "not in touch with reality"... off with the fairies. on a ferry, near fairytales, surrounded by good faeries. but there is something like a plan. i'll try to get four feet on the ground, a head full of foliage and i'll learn to see the world with my heart.
