End of an Era

the casual conversational tone of a blog is what makes it so very dangerous

After several years and 2342 posts, this will be my very last blog.

It’s served its purpose, kept me sane and literate, and introduced me to several very interesting people.

However, no matter how hard I tried, from time to time I would post some quite inappropriate things, which did me no credit at all. 

Besides I detest the ‘new’ block editor.

So, thank you so very much for reading and commenting, but good morning and goodbye for good.

I hope you have enjoyed reading, as much as I have enjoyed writing.

Monochrome Monday ~ Ebony and Ivory

monochrome photography shows the darkness in the soul

In these politically correct days are we even allowed to listen to this song any more.  You know what?  I don’t care what sad, narrow-minded people think, I like this Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder Duet.

Oh maybe they were talking about piano keys.

In these woke days they can’t be made of ivory either.

But maybe ebony is O.K.

I am the lucky one

real love means doing whatever it takes

no more grey skies now

never felt a love like this

just that first tender kiss

was all that it took

for me to give everything

to make her mine

for all of time
