i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

I’ve been watching this show.  I almost can’t decide whether I like it or not.  It is focused on introducing healthy food (organic chickens and cow milk aside) into the school lunch program and that is something of which I am a huge proponent.  But the problem is it’s still just reality television.  The dramatic music plays when protagonist Jamie has a “showdown” with the antagonistic Alice, he pulls stunts like cooking up a week’s worth of unhealthy food and then throwing it away, and he even cries in the first episode (but hey, maybe that was sincere).  I’m not saying he can’t make a difference on a small scale.  Maybe he reaches a few parents in Huntington or some television viewers.  But this show is much too shallow to make any kind of lasting impact on what school children are served in this country.  The problem is the school lunch program.  And the problem with the school lunch program is the government subsidies of meat and dairy which dump huge amounts of animal products (cheesy, creamy goodness)  into food for those kids.

But I’m still watchin’ it.
