Endings

you cannot heal by going back to what broke you

~

Everything I have thought, said, and written in the past two days is wrong and bad.

It seems that I have broken something that was very important to me.

A friendship is over, and there is no way back to what was.

Everything ends, I’m sorry this friendship had to.

I’ll try to forget her,

I’ll spend the rest of my life trying.

And I apologise.

at least it will be easy to remember when

Christmas Fun ~ The Pretenders

Christmas is the day that holds all time together.

For the first time since he died, this morning I had a fond memory of my father, from very long ago.  It seems that Christmas transcends time and distance.

This song is another memory from long ago, something that would be played in my car on the long drive north from London to a little pit village in County Durham.

Please listen thinking of those far away this Christmas.

Roads in the USA are much more fun than in Europe

in a December’s winter I would rather be almost anywhere but here.

Road Trip

some beautiful roads can’t be discovered without getting lost

As my Christmas vacation plans are totally screwed, I may take a long road trip instead.

And, when in the USA, I do like to rent a Mustang.

Or a Jaguar

Of course, in Europe I prefer something smaller

what I really need as well as a cool car

is a fabulous travelling companion

Without a Woman

without a woman and alone again, naturally

Maybe some relationships were just never meant to be.

Well, my latest and last certainly ended in a total fuck-up.

it was good while it lasted

some cool road trips

Desert Journey

the immense desert, empty and inspired with spiritual promises

~

Like many Englishmen, from that green and pleasant land, I have a strong personal affinity for the desert.  I like the high plains and the heat of Red Rock Country in the late summer.  There is a simplicity about the desert, you are either right or you’re in deep trouble, and there’s little ground in-between.

And now, when England cowers cold beneath our autumn mists and morning frost, I yearn to be back in the blazing sunshine and heat of California, New Mexico, Arizona, or Nevada.  Preferably on a long spontaneous road trip, driving a Mustang convertible with a cool lady riding shotgun.

Sweetheart, yes it’s true, I’m so happy to be stuck with you

deep in red rock country

in that desert we pray to God

but we trust in ourselves as men
