He is the sweetest dog.  We have had him for 3-1/2 years.  He makes me smile so many times every day.  Here he is this morning, taking my place in bed soon after I left.  Warm and cozy in my spot.

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.
