Send Me


Send Me



Patrick Ryan’s first work of fiction is written with such authority, grace, and wisdom, it might be the capstone of a distinguished literary career.

In the Florida of NASA launches, ranch houses, and sudden hurricanes, Teresa Kerrigan, ungrounded by two divorces, tries to hold her life together. But her ex-husbands linger in the background while her four children spin away to their own separate futures, each carrying the baggage of a complex family history. Matt serves as caretaker to the ailing father who abandoned him as a child, while his wild teenage sister, Karen, hides herself in marriage to a born-again salesman. Joe, a perpetual outsider, struggles with a private sibling rivalry that nearly derails him. And then there’s the youngest, Frankie, an endearing, eccentric sci-fi freak who’s been searching since childhood for intelligent life in the universe–and finds it.

Written with wry affection, and with compassion for every character in its pages, Send Me is a wholly original, haunting evocation of family love, loss, and, ultimately, forgiveness.

History

"Swing Low, Sweet Chariot" was first written by Wallis Willis, a Choctaw freedman in the old Indian Territory, sometime before 1862.

He was inspired by the Red River, which reminded him of the Jordan River and of the Prophet Elijah's being taken to heaven by a chariot (2 Kings 2:11).

Many sources (see Songs of the underground railroad) claim that this song and "Steal Away"—also composed by Willis—had lyrics that referred to the Underground Railroad, the resistance movement that helped slaves escape from the South to the North and Canada.

Alexander Reid, a minister at a Choctaw boarding school, heard Willis singing these two songs and transcribed the words and melodies.

He sent the music to the Jubilee Singers of Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. The Jubilee Singers popularized the songs during a tour of the United States and Europe.

The song enjoyed a resurgence during the 1960s Civil Rights struggle and the folk revival; it was performed by a number of artists. Perhaps the most famous performance during this period was that by Joan Baez during the legendary 1969 Woodstock festival.

Traditional lyrics

Chorus:

Swing low, sweet chariot
Coming for to carry me home,
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home.

I looked over Jordan, and what did I see
Coming for to carry me home?
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home.

Chorus

Sometimes I'm up, and sometimes I'm down,
(Coming for to carry me home)
But still my soul feels heavenly bound.
(Coming for to carry me home)

Chorus

The brightest day that I can say,
(Coming for to carry me home)
When Jesus washed my sins away.
(Coming for to carry me home)

Chorus

If I get there before you do,
(Coming for to carry me home)
I'll cut a hole and pull you through.
(Coming for to carry me home)

Chorus

If you get there before I do,
(Coming for to carry me home)
Tell all my friends I'm coming too.
(Coming for to carry me home)

Notable allusions in other songs
Neil Young, used word arrangements from this spiritual and from it's 1968 adaptation "Swing Low, Sweet Cadillac" by Dizzy Gillespie in different parts of his song "Alabama" on the album Harvest (1972):


Swing low Alabama
Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch and a wheel on the track
Hear the banjo. Don't it take you down home?

Roger Waters, the Pink Floyd lyricist, used the lines from this spiritual twice in his songs: first, in 1977 composition "Sheep" from the Animals album,


I looked over Jordan, and I've seen
Things are not what they seem

and then in "Bravery of Being out of Range" from Amused to Death (1992):


I looked over Jordan and what did I see?
Saw a U.S. Marine in a pile of debris
Emmylou Harris made an allusion to this song in "Sweet Chariot", the closing song on The Ballad of Sally Rose (1985):


Swing down sweet chariot
The flesh will fall and the bones will rot
But from my sorrow you'll carry me not
My heart is











A woman is like a flower




A woman is like a flower





A Persian say to explain why a woman, in their society, should get married young.
Without judging the morality of that say; there's logic in it. There are rare moments in our life that will never repeat themselves.
Love life; or at least try, that's a good start.

My apologies for the length.

Yesterday when I was young
English lyrics by: Herbert Kretzmer (originally "Hier Encore" by Charles Aznavour)

Yesterday when I was young,
The taste of life was sweet as rain upon my tongue,
I teased at life as if it were a foolish game,
The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame;
The thousand dreams I dreamed,
The splendid things I planned I always built, alas,
on weak and shifting sand;

I lived by night and shunned the naked light of day
And only now I see how the years ran away.

Yesterday when I was young,
So many drinking songs were waiting to be sung,
So many wayward pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my dazzled eyes refused to see,
I ran so fast that time and youth at last ran out,
I never stopped to think what life was all about
And every conversation I can now recall concerned itself with me,
and nothing else at all.

Yesterday the moon was blue,
and every crazy day brought something new to do,
I used my magic age as if it were a wand,
and never saw the waste and emptiness beyond;

The game of love I played with arrogance and pride
and every flame I lit too quickly, quickly died;

The friends I made all seemed somehow to drift away
And only I am left on stage to end the play.
There are so many songs in me that won't be sung,
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue,
The time has come for me to pay
for Yesterday When I was Young.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

"You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.
Every day, God gives us the sun -and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes
us unhappy. Every day, we try to pretend that we haven't perceived that moment, that it doesn't exist - that today is the
same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow. But if people really pay attention to their everyday lives, they will
discover that magic moment. It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane, like putting our front-door
key in the lock; it may lie hidden in the quiet that follows the lunch hour or in the thousand and one things that all seem the
same to us. But that moment exists - a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to
perfom miracles.

Joy is sometimes a blessing, but it is often a conquest. Our magic moment helps us to change and sends us off in search of
our dreams. Yes, we are going to suffer, we will have difficult times, and we will experience many disappoinments - but all of this
is transitory; it leaves no permanent mark. And one day we will look back with pride and faith at the journey we have taken.
Pitiful is the person who is afraid of taking risks. Perhaps this person will never be disappointed or disillusioned; perhaps he won't
suffer the way people do when they have a dream to follow. But when that person looks back - and at some point everyone looks back -
he will hear his heart saying, "What have you done with the miracles that God planted in your days? What have you done with the
talents God bestowed on you? You buried yourself in a cave because you were fearful of losing those talents... So, this is your heritage:
the certainty that you wasted your life. Pitiful are the people who must realize this. Because when they are finally able to believe in
miracles, their life's magic moments will have already passed them by."
