Wish you were here

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Wednesday 14th September

Sunshine in September

Warmth upon my face

Wish you were here

To hug and embrace.

Sunlight on sparkling sea

Boats bobbing at high tide

Wish you were here

Standing at my side.

Flower displays in the church

Beautiful and colourful

Wish you were here

That would be just wonderful.

Love you my sweetheart Angel.

Dearest, darling son.


Bright and breezy

Sparkly sea

Bobbing boats

Fabulous floral displays at the Parish Church Flower Festival……..

Let No Man Steal Your Thyme

Ann's Corner

Screen Shot 2016-01-04 at 11.50.53 PM.pngThis is from the movie “Far From the Madding Crowd”. I thought the song beautifully sad. I love these traditional songs.

Here are two versions of the words to look over. The first version is what you hear in the clip. The second explains the song and gives what might be the original words.

When I heard this song I did not know the words and I thought thyme was time. It made sense to me to let no man “steal my time” as in not letting any man waste my time because it is too precious. Keep my time for the right man, the one who will love me.

I felt the willow tree was the sadness that came of a wrong choice, a man who took advantage.

Now I know what the song was supposed to say and it helps me to understand better the original meaning…

Pretty Girl Unloved

The Lonely Author

The_Last_LeafPretty Girl Unloved

She was the last leaf on a dying tree
Hanging from a barren branch

With no one to cure her hurt
Dying in shadows with no sun above
She lay in the cold forever
Pretty girl unloved

Due to my crazy week this was another reblog.  Will be catching up with blogs and comments today.  Expect to get back to my regular schedule next week.

Have a great weekend.  Be happy. Be well.

Flash Movie Review: The Wild Life


For some of you one of your earliest memories may have been waking up in the morning to see 2 eyes intently watching you from a nose distance away. You may have woken up from the warm breath pulsing at you or maybe the low sounding purr. One of the earliest relationships many of us have had was the bond between us and our pets. Though I did not experience it at a young age, I do remember how much I enjoyed slipping in between the bed sheets to discover the warmth a pet had created in my space. I still get a chuckle from the stories and photos my friends share of them waking up to have a sleeping cat draped around their head or going to sleep and finding their dog was already snuggled into the bed with the sheets pulled up to their dog collar, their head…
