One of our guides leading the Grand Canyon hike suggested that we call Cacti “Cactuses” instead. He said that “Cacti” just sounded weird. Quite frankly, they both do.
But they are definitely cool looking, especially when they’re flowering.
Every year is getting shorter never
seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or
half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the
The time is gone, the song is over
Thought I’d something more to say.
I like to be here
when I can
When I come home
Cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones
Beside the fire
Across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spell
Time, Pink Floyd (partial lyrics)
