Far Away

By Ramsie Shick / Category Love

written a very long time ago
recorded on a record or its actually called a compact disc they are really tiny
in 1999
..
usually i give credit where credit is due
but
..
this now is no longer my job
unless its like
im not finishing this sentence.
..

.
i wrote the song
and noone ever understood what it really meant ever.
..
influence by richard thompson and that whole category of folk
and music i had heard in the
pine barrens of new jersey
and all gaelic music i had heard my whole life.
..
i was giving a HUGE storybookish thankyou to my mom and dad.
it is a fairy tale and it is real.
such is music.
..
i do not recall when i recorded this particular version
it was much fun to play it with a band
and now i just have found a compact disc
which shows apparently we were trying to record this in
another state in a bus and a basement
with drops of water and pots and pans
and a really great drummer and lee on bas and possibly more would be added to really
dreamy it up
which was my original intention'and was captured on teh original compact disc
but i am having to let that go now [for now it seems]
i have to stop or the category will turn back to "loss"
..
this is a love song
and it was for my folks and many other things
and i am sick of anyone getting in the way of
any of this kind of fairy-bok traveling
or in between my husband and i
and i am saying this very calmly
like i say thank you and some other stranger
comes in and just punches the lights out of all parties?
in field hockey
this is called in a way?
a 3rd party obstruction.
that's just the only allegory i can
sort of come up with for this?
like if
a 3rd party obstruction is forced on purpose by the other team
[they happen all the time? it's the nature of field hockey]
but sometimes sometimes a bullying team will
actually cause a 3rd party obstruction to happen
which is just weird.
and furthermore
field hockey is not played eveyrwhere
so not many understand this
wild "fowl"
and honestly it used to be a male sport played n the olympics
i think
but i played it my whole middle school and highschool
and i went to
international field hockey camap
and had welsh coaches and it was a ruff tuff sport and it kept me alive
these are definitely not the lyrics to the song.

this was for my dad his loverly wife and his favorite stranger is the angel in the house. which really means he never left nor did i or her luck which was me I'm not plain out- the fairy tale is an old one. you can see it in irish or scottish or cross canadian or finland or wales or anywhere really- i adapted it from several songs i loved and my real lfe. which real life is often way too difficult to write about. i know one year i did start to write about real life- and it dam near broke my head in two, and then lee had a stroke. and i almost went mad. well. that was that. heres to fairy tales and tributes to the ones who really do love us. and to love.

this is completely soothing, although a bit breaking. i love the simplicity and the soft tones, the folksie/earth[l]y joni mitchell sound. ..
takes me back to an innocent place.

beautiful.

and they might get better.
