SLS 04/08/2019 – “Heartlight”

Okay, I am a little late on this one, but I didn’t want to pass up a chance to write about the guy I have had a crush on for 50 years – Neil Diamond. He, along with Burt Bacharach and Carol Bayer Sager, was inspired by the movie “ET” to write a song. I believe it …

This week Helen, at “This Thing Called Life, One Word At A Time“, picked “Days” as her topic for Song Lyric Sunday. I knew my song the instant I saw the topic. “Those Were The Days” by Mary Hopkin is a song that just about anyone can relate to. Even though on the surface it may …

Hey Hey Hey It’s A Beautiful Day!

Actually, it is cold, windy and pouring rain. Some areas of our province are still getting snow. But inside my heart and soul, the sun is shining bright and warm. This is the official end of my very deep and dark depression. The last couple of days I have started to feel better in the …
