"Candle in the Wind" An Interpretive Dance: (Performed by Bill McCreary, Rob Schick, Kerry Fraser, Greg Kimmerly, Pierre Champoux and Paul Stewart.)

Goodbye Norma Jean, Though I never knew you at all-



You had the grace to hold yourself-



While those around you crawled.




They crawled out of the woodwork-




And they whispered into your brain




They set you on the treadmill-



And they made you change your name.



And it seems to me you lived your life-



Like a candle in the wind;



Never knowing who to cling to-



When the rain set in.



And I would have liked to have known you-



But I was just a kid.



Your candle burned out long before-



Your legend ever did.




I say, your candle burned out long before-



Your legend ever di- i- i- i -id.






Music by Elton John

That was really good- that said... I'm SO glad the actual hockey season is about to begin-

you really need something to write about

Disturbing, but good. I'm torn. And slightly traumatised.
