Killing Me Softly

I recently re-discovered this song.  I love it.  The melody and lyrics speak to me.   I plugged it into Pandora as a station and a whole host of songs from that era started playing on my computer at work.  Every song makes me take a stroll back in time.

Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song, killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words, killing me softly with his song

I heard he sang a good song, I heard he had a style
And so I came to see him and listen for a while
And there he was this young boy, a stranger to my eyes

Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song, killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words, killing me softly with his song

I felt all flushed with fever, embarrassed by the crowd
I felt he found my letters and read each one out loud
I prayed that he would finish but he just kept right on

Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song, killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words, killing me softly with his song

He sang as if he knew me in all my dark despair
And then he looked right through me as if I wasn’t there
And he just kept on singing, singing clear and strong

Strumming my pain with his fingers, singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song, killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words, killing me softly with his song

Victorian Photography

I know this might be morbid to some but this article about Victorian postmortem photography is very enlightening.  This was probably the only photo taken of these poor children.  Here is an example.

Words of Wisdom

When you get the chance, travel. When you return home, stay. Wherever you end up arriving, there’s nothing like knowing that you come from somewhere.

Words of Wisdom from a father to his 21-year old daughter.  The remaining 20 are here, but I fell in love with this one.

Diet

Well, I am on another diet.  I have gained a few and by a few I mean a lot.  This time it is Nutrisystem.  I have used them before so I know what to expect with their food.  I like to pick my own items from their website.  It is all about portion control.

Sometimes I feel I am fine just the way I am.  (Weight wise).  Then I start looking at clothing fashion and I want to be slimmer.  So I go back and forth between fine-diet.

I am currently on the third day.  I am starting to get used to the decrease in food consumption.  The first day was brutal.  I was so hungry.  I didn’t have enough vegetables and salad in the house to supplement my meals, but once I was able to get to the grocery store I began to feel less hungry all the time.

I would like to do the Nutrisystem diet for two months…but we shall see.

How much to lose?…hopefully 20 pounds, although 30 would be better.
