Favorite Quote:
What things there are to write, if only one could write them! My mind is full of gleaming thought; gay moods and mysterious, moth-like meditations hover in my imagination, fanning their painted wings. But always the rarest, those streaked with azure and the deepest crimson, flutter away beyond my reach. ~Logan Pearsall Smith


Fill me a bag with my favorite things
Light of the moon and angel wings
Indigo skies with lots of stars
And a whole box of patched-up hearts
My rainbow parachute
Lucky clover and purple balloon
Don't forget the cookies please
Now it's time for me to leave

I'm going away
Won't put it off another day
It's a special journey
Of my self-discovery
I'm soaring away
On the winds of change
Kiss me goodbye
It's time to fly

I've packed my carpetbag time to go
I really hope it's not going to snow
'Cause I planned to ride on the clouds
Really want to make my mama proud
Here I go off on my trip
No, carpetbag please don't rip
It's just packed so full of love
Though I think not packed full enough

I'm going away
Won't put it off another day
It's a special journey
Of my self-discovery
I'm soaring away
On the winds of change
Kiss me goodbye
It's time to fly

Load my pocket with some sweets
You know I love my mama's treats
Catch a fairy for her dust
We can fly until the dusk
Then we'll sleep up in the sky
With a bunch of fireflies
Floating lanterns by my head
Downy mist serves as my bed

I'm going away
Won't put it off another day
It's a special journey
Of my self-discovery
I'm soaring away
On the winds of change
Kiss me goodbye
It's time to fly

Okay, I'm going now
Mama, put away your frown
I won't leave the backyard
Or at least I won't go far
While I sleep under the stars

I'm going away
Won't put it off another day
It's a special journey
Of my self-discovery
I will soar to sleep
Just by counting sheep
Kiss me goodnight
Time for dreams to fly
