“The ‘D’ stands for death, so the thing is, you’re waiting for death, in a way. And while you’re waiting for death, a lot of things go on in your life. Separations or pain or some beautiful joy, all this stuff happens. And then in the end

[of the ‘Between My Head And The Sky‘ album is] the song called “Higa Noboru,” which means “The Sun is Rising.” After the D Train, The Sun Is Down. And then the sun is rising, and I’m saying “I’m still alive.” It’s going into the new era, a new age. We’re gonna go to a new age together. That’s what it means.”
Yoko Ono, 2012.

WAITING FOR THE D TRAIN

Waiting For The D Train
D Train
Waiting for the D Train
Train, train, train, train
Connection..

Cueing for my bread
Passing many tunnels
In the cold winter morning
Looking for the end

Cueing for the bread
Waiting for exit

I’M GOING AWAY SMILING

I’m going away smiling
Thinking of our life
How we were good for each other
How we knew

When I came to you
I was all black and blue
You just smiled and said your love was true
We had a great time, didn’t we?
Never knew this is how it would be

Now the boat is slowly leaving
Leaving the life I loved
I see you standing at the pier
Trying to hide your fear

Thank you for the memories
Thank you for the laughs
I’m going away, this time
Remember.. no tears

Words and Music by Yoko Ono



Paws 4 U Rescue

PAWS 4 U RESCUE

Paws 4 You Rescue, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer, donor-subsidized animal rescue organization based in Miami, Florida. Our top priority is to save animals from euthanasia at
Miami-Dade Animal Services. On average 100 animals are destroyed every day at this county shelter!

Rescued animals vary from being sick, injured, homeless and surrendered to simply lost. We give these animals a safe environment, professional medical care, training, support, hope and lots of love. Our animals are sterilized, vaccinated and ID micro-chipped to prevent future loss. Some require major surgery from a specialist to repair broken limbs while others may need additional rehabilitation time and specific medical care – ranging from respiratory illnesses and skin infections to cherry eyes and heartworm treatments.

Once Paws 4 You Rescue commits to helping an animal, we seek the best quality treatment available – taking no shortcuts. Our dogs often stay at veterinary clinics or boarding facilities when foster homes are not available. In order to increase our animals’ visibility, we spend time taking our new friends to different events across South Florida in search of their forever home. Our team is compassionate and passionate in reaching these goals. We are a group of professional people with various backgrounds, who together commit to saving as many animals as possible.

Additionally, we believe in the value of education pertaining to the importance of spaying and neutering. Pet overpopulation is a serious problem in our county and by sterilizing your pet, you help relieve the strain on Miami-Dade Animal Services and our community.
