You who are on the road Must have a code that you can live by

That is a line from a song by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young called:
"Teach Your Children."

There is an ironic God that speaks in tongues inside my head, I believe this voice is male. Nonetheless, I am for sure one them folks on the road, and I do have a code to live by. Generally, my code is to tell my story simple, direct, and honest, and to never hide behind a lie, to be man enough to be me, and not what you want to hear.




I cannot imagine lying to this little baby in my arm in Cote d’Ivoire, West Africa.

I cannot imagine lying to the full size adult children in my life anywhere I meet on the planet, and for sure it would be stupid to lie to readers, yet it feels to me that 99 percent of travel writers want to tell you something more than real, never just life on life’s terms.

What happened to me?
I went to a place called Plan B the other night, and a girl I was talking with, tall skinny and nice told me she had five children. I had not reason to doubt her, he even gave me what I thought was her number.

I told Ani about the five children, and she said that this was not true.

Well, a long story short, the girl told me a long lie, completely trying to be in control of nothing. I was hurt to think, this girl has no code, she will lie for no reason, I was further hurt to think that people around me would indulge her, or believe this was good or clever. It is quite obvious, many people have a code, quite different than mine.



My Second Code to Live by
I walk away from people who believe this is good, clever, and never look back, life is simpler when I keep the idiots downstream from my path.

And it for sure, there are many people who did not have parent, to teach them well, but there is always time to take a different path, or change your stars.



TEACH YOUR CHILDREN
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
by Graham Nash

You who are on the road
Must have a code that you can live by
And so become yourself
Because the past is just a good bye.
Teach your children well,
Their father's hell did slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by.
Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.
And you, of tender years,
Can't know the fears that your elders grew by,
And so please help them with your youth,
They seek the truth before they can die.
Teach your parents well,
Their children's hell will slowly go by,
And feed them on your dreams
The one they picks, the one you'll know by.
Don't you ever ask them why, if they told you, you will cry,
So just look at them and sigh and know they love you.
