Random Jottings ~ Apologies

never apologise for showing your true feelings 
never apologise for feeling hurt
~
a bad apology is better than none
~
an excuse isn’t the same as an apology
~
if he says; ‘I’m sorry you feel that way…..’
then run far and run fast
~
‘I am sorry you’re angry…..’ is not an apology
~
some say that sorry seems to be the hardest word
it isn’t, goodbye is
~
an apology is meaningless if he keeps doing what he was sorry for

telling her that you love her

is not being weak

unless you apologise for it

sorry

goodbye is the hardest word

~

please forgive me when things don’t always go right

and that I didn’t say; ‘I love you’ as much as I might

I apologise that I stay awake just to hear you breathing

and that sometimes I get weary late at night

please forgive me that I couldn’t make it to forever

only to a pacific sunset’s last fading light

men can’t always make it perfect

no matter how hard they try

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Lionel Richie

sometimes only the original will do

Following the mashup video of Lionel Richie’s Dancing on the Ceiling I posted this morning, here is the original video.

Please don’t try to do this at karaoke if you can’t dance.

Tunes on Tuesday ~ Dancing on the Ceiling

she makes me go round and round, turn upside down

I really like this Lionel Richie track, and the mashup video makes me smile.  It’s also great for aerobic exercise.

Just don’t break a leg, you’re not Fred Astaire.

But you can dance, everybody can dance.

Songs on Saturday ~ Lovely Day

this is the first day of the rest of my life

I just wanted to play something gentle and uplifting today.  This Bill Withers song fits the bill perfectly.

I hope you remember this as well as I do.

this was a lovely day with my friend Marmaduke

Scenes on Sunday ~ Stelvio

there are bold drivers and there are old drivers
but there are no old bold drivers

One of the places in the world I most want to go back to is 15 miles of road between Davos in Switzerland and Stelvio in Italy.  The Stelvio Pass.

~

I drove it twice, once in a TR6

~

~

and once in a 7

~

Some are stupid enough to ride the Stelvio on a motorcycle.  It is to be hoped that they had their life assurance up to date.  Do not drive the Stelvio in bad weather or at night, unless you are very brave.

Detroit never dreamed that a road like the climb to the Stelvio Pass existed

Songs on Saturday ~ Shape of My Heart

only the world can keep us apart

It was always in the cards that the world would conspire to keep me apart from she I care for, but that distance is not the shape of my heart.  This track from Sting comes some way to expressing how I feel.

A real man, a man who shows and honest and open face to the world can only ever love one woman.  And, I don’t own a dog.

but then, real men don’t play cards

Songs on Saturday ~ At the River

when a man is weary of the sea, he is weary of life

Here it’s cold, grey, damp, and miserable.  This song by Groove Armada makes me think of better days and visits to warm places like Laguna Beach.

The Beaches of Orange County look pretty good from here.

A nice dream for a bad day in England.
