music from a friend

The past is over, nothing reminds me of you.


I’m a guy.

I’m a bit older.

I’m very English.

My tastes are solid, maybe staid, and perhaps a bit inflexible.  Art, Cars, Clothes, Food, Music… I seem to be one of those guys who thinks he knows what he likes and is reluctant to try something new.

Sometimes the new is surprising and apposite.  As luck would have it, it just so happened that a friend sent me a couple of albums by a guy I’d never heard of; Ben Taylor.  I liked his dad.

A track has the lyrics;

She always wants what she can’t have

Life is so cruel

She’s always good when she’s so bad

What can’t she do?


the killer line is;

She’s always thinking of someone, that’s how it goes…


Story of my life.  All the women I have known always seem to be thinking of someone else.


Sometimes, just once, I’d like to know someone who wasn’t always living in the past.  Who wanted to show me their colourful shoes, just because it’s me, and not because they really belong to someone else.

Letting yesterday affect today will only destroy the excitement of tomorrow.  ~  Michelle Cruz-Rosado

Sometimes, it’s more than I can take.  Life goes on regardless.  The best is yet to come.

    1. I thought I’d found my girl. But I think she’s too wound up in the past with Jack, or Bill, or Fred, or David, or some 20 years old guy she met in a bar, or whoever. 🙂


      1. She is then not your girl…the right one will come! 🌷👍😊

    1. Went all the way to Wyoming, saw an eclipse, not so around the corner.


      1. Yeah, I know. Hope it was fun. But now you are back, who knows, you might meet someone just around the corner.👍


      2. A love lost is better than no love at all💔.
