Mighty Long Way

Said I'm shakin' in my shoes sometimes
And all alone I get the blues sometimes
And I'm far away from home, it seems so far, so far away
Many moons and many days
You know many things are on my mind
I search and search for answers I can't find
Then my people I will seek
They listen when I speak

Believe me when I say
Me and my friends go a mighty long way
There's nothing that can make this bond to break
And if comes along it must be strong
Believe me when I say
Me and my friends go a mighty long way

When I look into the cloudy sky
And cleanse my soul as the heavens cry
My life is like a rolling stone
Up and down the hill
It breaks my ass like a window sill
And if I had to do it all by myself
There be a threat to my mental health
But there's no need to run and hide
When folks are by your side

Believe me when I say
Me and my friends go a mighty long way
There's nothing that can make this bond to break
And don't even try unless you're ready to die
Believe me when I say
Me and my friends go a mighty long way
Believe me when I say
We go a mighty long way

Randy & me playing Halo Randy and Nataliya on New Years Eve

RaDon, Randy, Randroid: I have known Randy since 1985. Our 5th grade teacher, Ms. Pat Anderson, at Chelsea Heights Elementary School in St. Paul, MN, introduced us to each other because Randy was getting into trouble with some other children he spent time with. I guess she figured that I was such a good little boy that I might be a good influence for him.


Nate fresh out of the shower Pretty boy

Nate: I met him in 1988 at the Swedish language camp I attended in northern MN. I didn't even like him when we met. We've come to be very good friends over the years. Nate is an only child and I think that has something to do with his amazing sense of humor and creativity. He had to find ways to entertain himself. (You know I love ya, man.)


Some call him Rainman... ...others call him Monkeyboy
Ric & Jen

Eric: He lives in CA now. I've known him since 1990. He has an incredible attention to detail when it comes to his chosen arts. He uses his hands a lot, if you couldn't tell by the pictures.


Cheers!
The boys having some Sake at Sakura. Alex (my brother), Stu and Eric (the Maschwitz brothers).
