Always on my mind

The last post may have sounded rather, well , sad & depressed … b/c that’s how I was feeling.. I thought I was abruptly and uncomfortably, at the end of a relationship. I was wrong, and it’s on the mend.

I’d like to balance those lyrics with the lyrics of this song, which I’ve heard wayyy too many times lately due to a steady dose of DDR:

You Are Always on My Mind (Pet Shop Boys)

Maybe I didnt treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didnt love you quite as often as I could
Little things I shouldve said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didnt hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, Im so happy that youre mine
If I made you feel second best, Im so sorry, I was blind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasnt died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied
Satisfied

Little things I shouldve said and done, I never took the time
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me, tell me that your sweet love hasnt died
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didnt treat you quite as good as I should
Maybe I didnt love you quite as often as I could
Maybe I didnt hold you all those lonely, lonely times
And I guess I never told you, Im so happy that youre mine

(maybe I didnt love you…)

Black Celebration

This Depeche Mode song could have multiple meanings right now … nationally, personally, etc.
Here’s to great music – which gets you through all life’s experiences, sad and joyful.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Lets have a black celebration
Black celebration
Tonight

To celebrate the fact
That weve seen the back
Of another black day

I look to you
How you carry on
When all hope is gone
Cant you see

Your optimistic eyes
Seem like paradise
To someone like
Me

I want to take you
In my arms
Forgetting all I couldnt do today

Black celebration
Black celebration
Tonight

To celebrate the fact
That weve seen the back
Of another black day

I look to you
And your strong belief
Me, I want relief
Tonight

Consolation
I want so much
Want to feel your touch
Tonight

Take me in your arms
Forgetting all you couldnt do today

Black celebration
Ill drink to that
Black celebration
Tonight

home base

Thought I’d post some shots of the home base here in frigid southeast Michigan … I was somehow tricked into (wanting to rationalize) that winter would be milder here.  Not true!  Down to below 0 last night and having a 500+ yard driveway doesn’t help matters … When am I going to find enough daylight to snowblow it?

twilight in Michigan by you.

room of one's own 1 by you.

The room of my own. Notica the copius amounts of craft stuff in the corner.  That’s pretty much all I brough 😛    Essential items of note: Sewing machine, yoga mat, and space heater …  and about this much yarn:

Stashy by you.

Needless to say, it is pretty warm & cozy.

Gearing up for BSG:The Final Episodes!

funny pictures
moar funny pictures
OK, I know it’s an airplane, but it made me think of the Vipers on Battlestar Gallactica …
Really excited for the Final Episodes, but still doing some catching up online with the most recent episodes.
The “What the Frack is Going on?” video on scifi.com really clears up a lot, and is funny to boot …

Ask Obama: Abolish Nuclear weapons

Abolishing nuclear weapons has always been cause I care deeply about. If anyone has ever read anything about Hiroshima & Nagasaki, or the use of depeleted uranium in the Middle East, then you will understand why.
I spent about two years of academic study on the topic of Hiroshima & Nagasaki and Atomic-Bomb Literature.  It was more than an academic exercise though … the survivors I met, the stories I heard and read touched me deeply, and  served as a daily reminder of why we must NEVER allow this to happen again.
I rarely take an unequivicol stance on an issue, but there is no question in my mind that nuclear weapons are a scourge to humanity and the planet and should never be used again.
Obviously, the U.S. would have to be one of the first, if not, the first to disarm. And THAT would be a huge statement for us to make to the rest of the world, to show how we are truly committed to peace on the planet.
Please, if you haven’t already signed up on change.org, do so, and vote for the top 10 ideas you feel the Obama administration should consider. My blog has been listed as one of those endorsing this idea.
