Thank You For Being A Friend

friendship is all about trusting each other, helping each other
loving each other, and being crazy together

This song is for a friend, someone to whom real friendship means everything.

Maybe, someday, I can repay her friendship.

Maybe it will always stay this way.

Well, I can dream, can’t I?

one rose can never be enough

unless it’s given in true friendship

Steadfast in Friendship

it’s a good life for those who don’t weaken and break

~

a friend in need is a friend indeed

~

a steadfast friend is unchanging and faithful

behave constantly, honestly, and courageously

~

a true friend is trustworthy, honest, open, and supportive

live with passion and conviction even in the face of opposition

~

a sure friend is dependable, reliable, constant, and unwavering

~

be like the cliff against which the waves continually break

but it stands firm and tames the fury of the waters around it

a steadfast friend is there for you

in good times and bad

I Love Her

sometimes a man needs to say ‘I love her….’

This song is for a friend of mine, someone I’ve been neglecting for a week, ever since I went to a family event that  didn’t go so well.

And, I do love her…..

I need to say it more often….

Love isn’t just for Valentines Day

Random Jottings ~ Mortality

in the midst of life we are in purgatory

~

in the dark, all paths are unknown

~

every day we live we learn something new

~

I could have died for her, but I couldn’t live for her

~

there can never be love without despair about life

~

an awareness of one’s own mortality

can mean we live a truer and more meaningful life

~

the pain of loneliness is the most meaningful part of our mortality

the only thing real in Life is Love

so accept the pain of the dance

Funereal Depression

in the midst of life I am in a mess

I am still suffering from the after-effects of attending my uncles funeral.  Something about it affected me very badly, so badly that I lost myself in alcohol for a couple of days.  I am still not certain what about that event hurt me so much, but no doubt I’ll figure it out eventually.

Hopefully, all you are well out there.

Random Jottings ~ Sunshine

without sunshine summer isn’t summer at all

~

the sun rose like a goddess from the sea

~

the caress of warm sunshine is delicious

~

‘you are my sunshine….’ he said

and then she burned him

~

‘I promise you I’ll make the sunshine come every day…..’

after that it rained a lot

~

just as a flower blooms in the sunshine

so blooms a woman in love

~

it’s hard to see the sunshine the morning after she dumped you

in summer she always wears virginal white

it isn’t her colour

Can’t Stop This Thing We Started

true love stories never have unhappy endings

I’ve been alone in lockdown for 478 days ~ long enough for me to think very carefully about relationships, friendships, and true love.  This Bryan Adams song is for someone who is more than just a very good friend.  I know that she is going to stick around, and that our story will never have an unhappy ending.

All she has to do is ask me, and I’ll tell her that I love her.

We have known each other for quite a while now.

Songs on Saturday ~ American Tune

hello America, how are you?

In these dark and somber days, when nothing seems to be going quite to plan, I thought this Paul Simon song might be appropriate for the holiday weekend.  Of course we English do not celebrate the fourth of July at all.  Some of us still think you were wrong.

Please listen with a little pride in your nation.

But, be realistic about Life in America today.

Songs on Saturday ~ Adiemus

in bad Latin adiemus means ‘let us approach’

Just for once I was listening to my Walkman yesterday as I strolled by the sea.  This Enya song inspired me to enjoy my perambulations a little more.

The music was once used on a Delta Airlines commercial.  It seems that not all adverts are tasteless.

Serenity, Peacefulness, Inspirational.

Listen with happiness.
