she left her footprints in the sand ~ she left her love in my heart
and I dream of her
her touch her eyes her hair
the way she left footprints in the sand
as we walked along that quiet beach together
musical voice speaking of a future, her small soft hand
resting gently in mine
a perfect day lasts for eternity
in our memories
the infinite mystery of the sea dwells in a mermaid’s magical heart
You may be in lockdown, which is pretty miserable, but that shouldn’t mean sitting in front of the TV all day snacking and drinking beer. We all need to stay fit and healthy during this medical emergency, and that means carrying on with our exercise routines.
Here in England I can go out for a walk in the fresh air and sunshine, once a day, providing that I stay close to the garret, (and sensibly don’t stop and talk with anyone at all).
Something else I can do is take some fun exercise indoors. My friend magickmermaid posted this music video as a comment on my blog yesterday as something different to exercise with ~ and I think it’s brilliantly hilarious. I hope you do too.
If you have any other suggestions for fun music videos to exercise to, then please share them.
I’m told laughing and sex are great exercise too.

inner peace is true wisdom’s best reply
a silent sea
a solitary beach
love is within reach
what it would be to experience that numinous light
meditation is not black magic, meditation is a relationship with yourself
For this Sunday some meditative music for you. I have just discovered the band 2002, and they play some very cool tunes. Try and breathe peacefully.
Meditation is sometimes difficult for me, but walking by the sea takes me to a very special place within my spirit.
Please listen responsibly.
everyone needs love
sometimes you don’t need explanations, desire is what it is
clandestine motel meetings
marriage commitments limitations
willfully ignoring their sexual sameness
enjoying stolen illicit moments of total bliss
she was the girl she dreamed of
when was just a little girl
trust is feeling safe with him ~ love is striving to keep that trust
feel the sun on your skin
let the warm future begin
enjoy a cool glass of wine
dream your dreams of him
gentle when he touches me
for my heart bruises easily
feeling the sun on my skin
trust begins and ends with the truth
a man may believe in witchcraft, magic, and love
I felt the snake bite
as she talks in my sleep
about others she might
love enchant and keep
under pale moonlight
her passion runs deep
through carnal nights
she’s a lascivious witch
playing dark love games
so, I fucked the hot bitch
and now I’m mad, insane
for the love of a witch
witches come in many forms
break my heart and my soul cries for love into the desert dust
letters lie there helplessly
in a pile inside the door
I’ve tried but I just can’t
remember who they’re for
the past fades
the future hides
and time just glides
then you say America
and that makes me smile
I haven’t seen America
for such a long long while
a soul just cries
new thoughts arise
of blue skies calm seas
But you said California
and it made me smile
if I ever see California
my blue eyes will shine
and as for love
it’s much to old
a story to believe
the Pacific listens to my crying soul
the impossible I can do immediately ~ miracles take a little longer
it’s a miracle
and yet we’re
we cannot do
I wouldn’t do
to be with you
not a fantasy
me loving you
seems a romantic Englishman can do just about anything
success is born out of discomfort, uncertainty, and risk
When I look back at the times when I have succeeded in life, and believe it or not there have been a few, one thing strikes me as germane ~ I wasn’t sitting in a comfy chair pondering the sharp changes in the price of booze since 1970. Whenever I achieved something important and worthwhile I was uncomfortable, I wasn’t living in the humdrum of my everyday existence, I was operating well outside of my comfort zone.
When we take risks we feel nervous and uncertain, afraid and uncomfortable. If it’s taking risks with our career, leaving a shitty and dysfunctional relationship, going all-in on a game of cards, or trying to run our first half-marathon, our biggest wins are always born out of discomfort, uncertainty, and risks.
Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, and difficulty. ~ Theodore Roosevelt
Usually the more uncomfortable I felt, the greater the risks I took, the harder something was to do, when it was almost impossible, then the bigger the success I achieved, the more self-confident I became, and the greater sense of achievement I felt at the end.
And that’s why true success is so rare, why so few people accomplish anything important, and why so few people ever do anything different ~ most people don’t like effort, pain, and difficulty. Most people don’t even like hard work.
Anytime you try to do something important you will be swimming against the tide. The people around you; family, friends, co-workers, your partner, will all tell you that what you want to do is stupid, impossible, and wrong. The more challenging, unique, and off the wall your project is, the stronger the criticism and negative judgementalism will be. All the people who think they know you will not like you doing something different. You are not only challenging yourself, you are also challenging their cosy little worlds too.
Ignore the critics, the Job’s comforters, the gainsayers, and the judgemental; you get on and do what you want to do to achieve your dreams, have your hearts desires, or just escape the shit life you are living right now.
There will be setbacks, things will go wrong, you will think you have bitten off more than you can chew, you will wonder WTF made to think you could dream the impossible dream, and then make it happen. Ignore all that and just keep on keeping on. It might be hell, but keep on going.
Learn how to be determined, learn how to adapt your plans and schemes to meet changing circumstances, learn how to ignore the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, learn how to be fucking relentless.
Some say that it’s better to stay safe than to take any risks at all. And that it’s all just too difficult, and I want to watch my soaps instead. All I know is that faint heart never won fair lady ~ and you can trust me on that one.
