    what's in a name?
    days found on the end of time
    the Sun never going down
    will we live forever?
    will we live until
    we can sit at the edge of
    the bubbling brook
    and dance our feet under the
    rush of relief and just laugh
    at the joy of writing
    and reciting?
    will we sip on nehi peach soda
    or a cola? and just go
    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...?
    maybe we can just sit and split
    a sweet potatoe or pecan pie
    and just under the sunshyne that
    once bore your name
    what's in a name?
    what's in a name is LOVE...chile...
    didn't you know?

    elayne = GA = LOVE (cause that's what you do)

    Sister/friend I enjoy name changes because that tells me that some sort of metamorphosis or different appreciation has taken place. Yeah, I know it's your born name but for you to switch from GA to elayne is too cool to me. Hmmmm...maybe I need to switch (again)....well you know itsalllovechile...your brother garrison

    I like this. And what I'm feeling from this and the responses, is no matter what the label... it's the same old package, inside.

    "Love is everything". Thanks for this sweet tribute to the sista, aka GA_Sunshyne. She keeps reminding us itsalllove. Liking dis!

    but i've grown to like my sunshyne
    rising & setting
    SOUTH of the
    .................
    heading
    NORTH of yonder
    radiating to
    the HEART of thee.

    BUT THEN
    this elayne character
    could grow on me:)

    THANKS for laying the track, Blak.
