Try For Thunder

Posted in Life on March 16, 2011 by gregbashore

 I haven’t smiled in a long time
but I’ve learned how to look impressed,
learned to lose the dreams I had when I was at my best.
When I was a boy on the back lawn,
faith, like a gun, I’d find
and be it loaded or not I’d keep it at my side.
This voice inside keeps saying:
“congratulations on what you’ve done, on all you are and all that you won’t become.”
But even when it’s hard I guess I’m never where I don’t belong
and I’ll get there by knowning I’d get there all along.

This life to me it’s like a try for thunder.
This sky that I’m under it’s the best sky for me.

I’ve learned less from daylight
than from night threatening to leave.
All along my voice goes after what my hands cannot reach.
I ran through the fog without you,
through the low hard language of rain,
afraid that if I caught what I came for I’d never want it again.

This life to me it’s like a try for thunder.
This sky that I’m under it says God’s been good to me.

One night in the rain you set me straight.
You said I have everything I need,
and for every slow day in the sun there’s two storms in between.
Where I am is where you’ll find me at the edge of many things,
hands outstretched, doing circles in the rain,
grinning like a thief.

This life to me it’s like a try for thunder
this sky that I’m under it says God’s been good to me.

Things You May Not Know About Me

Posted in Life on March 10, 2011 by gregbashore

-My favorite hobby is reading. I take a book with me where ever I go. My favorite authors are Mark Twain and Hemmingway

-I love to read poetry. My favorite poets are Walt Whitman, and old cowboys who would write by campfires during cattle drives.

-I love learning, and if I have to watch TV I’d rather watch the History or Discovery channel. I also set a goal for myself to read the entire Encyclopedia Britannica, from A-Z

-When I was a little kid I wanted to live as a Native American, and try once a week to convince my wife that we should live in a tee-pee

-I hate shoes, and wear them only when I have to. During the summer I stash a pair of flip flops in my back pocket and only put them on when I go into a public building.

-I’d love to be a writer, but still haven’t learned basic sentence structure (stupid commas and semi colons)

-If it wasn’t unhealthy, or could cause cancer , I would smoke a pipe. However, I plan to start later on in life once I don’t care about my health anymore.

-I love the smell of coffee. It’s hands down the greatest smell in the world. I hate the taste though.

-I have played competitive baseball and soccer at high levels. I am currently into long distance running and powerlifting. I just got interested in rock climbing, and I want to play rugby and compete in the Highland games.

-I am very interested in folk lore. Particularly American, German, Irish and Scottish folklore.

-Guinness Draft is the lightest beer I will drink. I hate wine and love whisky.
