A Mix for my girlfriend and a poem I saw she had read, recently...When I Heard At The Close Of The Dayby Walt Whitman<WHEN I heard at the close of the day how my name had been receiv'd
with plaudits in the capitol, still it was not a happy night for me that follow'd;
And else, when I carous'd, or when my plans were accomplish'd, still I was not happy;
But the day when I rose at dawn from the bed of perfect health,
refresh'd, singing, inhaling the ripe breath of autumn,
When I saw the full moon in the west grow pale and disappear in the
morning light,
When I wander'd alone over the beach, and undressing, bathed,
laughing with the cool waters, and saw the sun rise,
And when I thought how my dear friend, my lover, was on his way
coming, O then I was happy;
O then each breath tasted sweeter--and all that day my food nourish'd
me more--and the beautiful day pass'd well,
And the next came with equal joy--and with the next, at evening, came
my friend;
And that night, while all was still, I heard the waters roll slowly
continually up the shores,
I heard the hissing rustle of the liquid and sands, as directed to
me, whispering, to congratulate me, 10
For the one I love most lay sleeping by me under the same cover in
the cool night,
In the stillness, in the autumn moonbeams, his face was inclined
toward me,
And his arm lay lightly around my breast--and that night I was happy.

"...and that night I was happy."

Mmm...moments of happiness. Spliced & crafted into our lives in-between the day-to-day tumult & rigors that are part and parcel of living "another day on earth". Life is shot at us, point blank and all we can truly choose is our reaction...or our response; the distinction of which can either drag us down to yet another ugly facet of existence, or lead to the opportunity for one more happy moment. Collect as many of those moments as you can

Nice mix, Gnome-man.

I'm with Rob on the Aphex Twin tune. Fantastic mix and poem. No one has done a mix for me and I would be honoured to receive something heartfelt as this. (sigh)
Your girlfriend is very lucky. Here grab some stars!

What I heard at the end of the day was "why can't you be more like musicgnome
and make me a mix and write me some poetry."
