SLS – TV

Jim has given us several forms of media to choose from for today’s Song Lyric Sunday. I have chosen TV because it seemed to be the easiest. It also gave me the opportunity to pick a song that I think is an important part of Beyoncé’s repertoire. The song is called “Pretty Hurts” and was […]

Salon Fantasies

I have had a few dreams over the past few nights that reminded me that it is a long time since I had a hair cut. I have been dreaming about being in the chair, having a junior member of staff at the salon shampoo my hair and massage my scalp. I have been dreaming […]

My melody maker, my sweet soul shaker – he finds the harmonies that reverberate within me. The lyricist who reaches into his own depths and forms verses that delight my heart and lift my spirits.

SLS – Nonsense

For today’s Song Lyric Sunday, Jim asked us to pick songs with nonsense lyrics. I have picked a song that had a really catchy section that still floats around my brain years after it was in the charts…and it did pretty well as far as I know. Hanson were this cute trio of brothers. They […]

Dark Nights And London Lights

It is a little strange spending so much time indoors. It is a dark gloomy time of year. I am in a comfortable place though. This little place is so sweet, and well furnished (Noo has such great taste). I love the lights throughout the property. Every room has lamps and dimmer switches and there […]

Our Walk Together

As we walk onwards hand in hand Enjoying the warmth of the sand Whispers of love, passion and more As cool waves lap against the shore Hold me close in a fond embrace There are facts we both need to face Dear friend, my body is brittle I need to sleep for a little There […]
