The following photographs of me, my younger brother, Evan, and my older sister, Leslie were taken by my mother, Jackie Blakeley.


Lori wanted to take a funny picture of me - so I obliged her.


"Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didn't have a care in the world
With mommy and daddy standin' by

But 'happily ever after' fails
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales ...

Ah, but I know a place where we can go
That's still untouched by men

We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass wave in the wind
You can lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around ....

Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence ..."

- "The End of the Innocence," MP3 Audio/Lyrics http://www.loriblakeley.name/loriblakeley_music/end_of_innocence.htm


Precious Lori -
I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh

I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph; I know it serves me well

I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

Samuel Barber's Adagio For Strings MP3 Audio File (11.9 MB) http://www.loriblakeley.name/loriblakeley_music/adagio_for_strings_barber.mp3

You've gone away, you don't feel me ... anymore
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
‘Cause I’m broken when I’m open

And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
- "Broken," Seether
MP3 audio file/lyrics http://www.loriblakeley.name/loriblakeley_music/broken.htm



All my sorrow, sad tomorrow
Take me back to my own home
All my crying (all my crying), feel I'm dying, dying
Take me back to my own home (ah, I'm going home)
- "Reflections of My Life," Dean Ford (Thomas McAleese) & Junior (William) Campbell (Band: Marmalade)
MP3 audio file/lyrics

Oh well, I'm tired and so weary
But I must go along
'Til the lord will come and call, call me away, oh yes ...
There will be peace in the valley for me, someday
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
There'll be no sadness, no sorrow (oh, my Lordy, no)
No trouble I'll see
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

- "(There Will Be) Peace In the Valley (For Me)," Thomas A. Dorsey (Performed by Red Foley)
