                                                                                                           “Impossible Dream”
To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march,
march into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know
If I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be
better for this
That one man, scorned
and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable,
the unreachable,
The unreachable star
And I’ll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I’ll reach
The unreachable star
To Dream the Impossible Dream-

To Dream the Impossible Dream-

Vandross suffered from diabetes and hypertension, both of which may have been brought on by family genetics as well as lifestyle and nutrition.

Vandross died on July 1, 2005 at JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey at the age of 54. His apparent cause of death was a heart attack.

After two days of viewing at the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Chapel, his funeral was held at Riverside Church in New York City on July 8, 2005. Vandross is interred at George Washington Memorial Park in Paramus, New Jersey.

Vandross never married, had no children, and his three older siblings died before him. He was survived by his mother, Mary Ida, who died in 2008. Vandross’ estate left an undisclosed major gift to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

"Snow (Hey Oh)"  Come to decide that the things that I tried were in my life just to get high on.  When I sit alone, come get a little known  But I need more than myself this time.  Step from the road to the sea to the sky, and I do believe that we rely on  When I lay it on, come get to play it on  All my life to sacrifice.   Hey oh... listen what I say oh  I got your hey oh, now listen what I say oh   When will I know that I really can't go  To the well once more - time to decide on.  Well it's killing me, when will I really see, all that I need to look inside.  Come to believe that I better not leave before I get my chance to ride,  Well it's killing me, what do I really need - all that I need to look inside.   Hey oh... listen what I say oh  Come back and hey oh, look at what I say oh   The more I see the less I know  The more I'd like to let it go - hey oh, whoa...   Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it's so white as snow,  Finally divided by a world so undecided and there's nowhere to go;  In between the cover of another perfect wonder and it's so white as snow,  Running through the field where all my tracks will be concealed and there's nowhere to go.   Ho!   Went to descend to amend for a friend of the channels that had broken down.  Now you bring it up, I'm gonna ring it up - just to hear you sing it out.  Step from the road to the sea to the sky, and I do believe what we rely on,  When I lay it on, come get to play it on  All my life to sacrifice   Hey oh... listen what I say oh  I got your hey oh... listen what I say oh   The more I see, the less I know  The more I'd like to let it go - hey oh, whoa...   Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it's so white as snow.  Finally divided by a world so undecided and there's nowhere to go  In between the cover of another perfect wonder where it's so white as snow  Running through the field where all my tracks will be concealed and there's nowhere to go.   I said hey hey yeah oh yeah, tell my love now.  Hey hey yeah oh yeah, tell my love now.   Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it's so white as snow,  Finally divided by a world so undecided and there's nowhere to go.  Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it's so white as snow...  Running through the field where all my tracks will be concealed and there's nowhere to go.   I said hey oh yeah oh yeah... tell my love now  Hey yeah yeah... oh yeah.

“Snow (Hey Oh)”  

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS LYRICS – Snow (Hey Oh)//

“Snow (Hey Oh)”

Come to decide that the things that I tried were in my life just to get high on.
When I sit alone, come get a little known
But I need more than myself this time.
Step from the road to the sea to the sky, and I do believe that we rely on
When I lay it on, come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice.
Hey oh… listen what I say oh
I got your hey oh, now listen what I say oh
When will I know that I really can’t go
To the well once more – time to decide on.
Well it’s killing me, when will I really see, all that I need to look inside.
Come to believe that I better not leave before I get my chance to ride,
Well it’s killing me, what do I really need – all that I need to look inside.
Hey oh… listen what I say oh
Come back and hey oh, look at what I say oh
The more I see the less I know
The more I’d like to let it go – hey oh, whoa…
Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it’s so white as snow,
Finally divided by a world so undecided and there’s nowhere to go;
In between the cover of another perfect wonder and it’s so white as snow,
Running through the field where all my tracks will be concealed and there’s nowhere to go.
Ho!
Went to descend to amend for a friend of the channels that had broken down.
Now you bring it up, I’m gonna ring it up – just to hear you sing it out.
Step from the road to the sea to the sky, and I do believe what we rely on,
When I lay it on, come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice
Hey oh… listen what I say oh
I got your hey oh… listen what I say oh
The more I see, the less I know
The more I’d like to let it go – hey oh, whoa…
Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it’s so white as snow.
Finally divided by a world so undecided and there’s nowhere to go
In between the cover of another perfect wonder where it’s so white as snow
Running through the field where all my tracks will be concealed and there’s nowhere to go.
I said hey hey yeah oh yeah, tell my love now.
Hey hey yeah oh yeah, tell my love now.
Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it’s so white as snow,
Finally divided by a world so undecided and there’s nowhere to go.
Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder where it’s so white as snow…
Running through the field where all my tracks will be concealed and there’s nowhere to go.
I said hey oh yeah oh yeah… tell my love now
Hey yeah yeah… oh yeah.

Stephen Stills – Love the one you’re with (1970)

If you’re down and confused

And you don’t remember who you’re talking to
Concentration slips away
Because your baby is so far away

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

Don’t be angry, don’t be sad
Don’t sit crying over good times you’ve had
Well there’s a girl sitting right next to you
And she’s just waiting for something to do

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
And if you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

Oh yea oh yea, yea
Lord, love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
Why don’t you love?

Turn your heartache right into joy
She’s a girl and you’re a boy
Did you get it together and make it nice?
When you ain’t gonna need anymore advice

Well there’s a rose in a fisted glove
And the eagle flies with the dove
Sometimes you can’t be with the one you love, honey
Love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with
You gotta love the one you’re with

You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, oh love
You gotta love, love the one you’re with
You gotta love, love

The raccoons are  making their nightly rounds, eating cat food biscuits in the back patio.  I wish I could take a photo  of  them in real time but they only come by at night in an area that is not well lit.  By the time I get my camera out they would be gone.

There is the mother raccoon and her two kits are usually not far behind. I often see the mother raccoon in the front yard, not far from my door, and when she sees me she stands in an upright position her two hind legs.
