Love…

Love wins… even in the face of despair. Changes are happening all over our world in light of the recent elections in the United States. To be honest, I’m not sure many of them are for the best. We seem to have opened up a chasm to a world of intolerance and hate that was

Random Thoughts

It started with a song… that song was you. I generally try not to dwell on the sad things that happen in life, but there are certain times that I think of nothing else. This time of the year is always that way for me. It starts with the holidays and by the time everyone

Sing anyway

Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. ~Emory Austin I’ve been writing a lot, not posting, not blogging… just writing. Scribbling down thoughts, bits of poems, stories of my past, wishes for a future…nothing very relevant or earth shattering, just snippets of a life. I’m trying to find myself again,

A Wish

As I examine my existence I realize that I need To find an angel To complete my dream An angel of love A heart with wings I would no longer be tethered To this world of things My soul has been longing I feel so alone I need this treasure To find my home Too

ghosts of love

I was listening to a song by Ryan Adams the other evening during one of our nightly thunderstorms. “When The Stars Go Blue” has always been a favorite of mine. It’s been covered by so many people but the original is the one I love. That song led to “Memories Of You” and the list

The Land Of Grimney …

While going through the past years musings and music, I realized I hadn’t posted this when it was originally written. It’s a bit of imaginative writing on the Land of Grimney and a silly, wee poem… Originall written in April 2014 and guest posted on Gongle Shanks’ blog:  gongle22: An upside down view of the

A Quiet Trumpet

It started with a song… well really it didn’t, it was a conversation about music though. A ‘quiet trumpet’ someone said… and for the life of me all I could think was that this was an oxymoron. When one thinks of the word trumpet, quietness is not something that generally comes to mind. Trumpets are

Morning Comes….

There is always hope. I tell myself this often, just to chase away the fear embedded in my mind when the day is done. The night is a lonely time as I wander around the quiet house, restless with my thoughts and the dark. Artificial light shines brightly, but is no match for the brilliance

The Happiness Waltz

It started with a song… one I found through a random search a while back, where one thing led to another. There was something that caught my soul in this song, the dance of a life, a love. Something old and new, of wanting and longing… the yearning for that one true love of your

Snowflakes

  It started with a song… a song about the snow, bringing visions of the holidays and cold frostiness. The song was initially a gift, some music I’d been given to play. I think it may be relevant to use it with this blog. I will admit I’m no longer a big fan of snow,
