RANT of the WEEK

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
― Bob Marley

QUOTATION of the WEEK

“I don’t understand the hatred and fear of gays and bisexuals and lesbians…
it’s a concept I honestly cannot grasp. To me, it’s not who you love…
a man, a woman, what have you… it’s the fact that you love.
That is all that truly matters.” ― Al Pacino

I Can’t Make You Love Me - Bonnie Raitt

“I Can’t Make You Love Me”

Turn down the lights;
Turn down the bed.
Turn down these voices
Inside my head.

Lay down with me;
Tell me no lies.
Just hold me close;
Don’t patronize.

Don’t patronize me.

[Chorus:]
‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t.
You can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t.
Here in the dark
In these final hours,
I will lay down my heart
And I’ll feel the power;
But you won’t.
No, you won’t.
‘Cuz I can’t make you love me
If you don’t.

I’ll close my eyes,
Then I won’t see
The love you don’t feel
When you’re holding me.

Morning will come,
And I’ll do what’s right;
Just give me till then
To give up this fight.

And I will give up this fight.

[Chorus]

heart on fire

“If She Truly Loved Me”
By Madison Taylor
30th December 2008

May be a poem
May be prose
Haven’t decided
What I’m writing yet
It will be about love
It will be about her

I can feel the pain
Of missing her
Wanting her arms
To surround me
Even in my fantasy
She quickly pulls away

In reverse reflection
Her hands reach toward me
She touches my face
Our eyes connect in vision
In a moment broken
Safeness returns

The small hesitation
Drives my mind to sight
Seeing her lightly
Brush back my hair
I know it is short
And her touch a gesture

Her fingertips
Caress the edges
Toward the way
We could be
If she truly loved me
And freedom were free

DAVID GILMOUR TEARS AT HIS SOUL
TO SHOW US THE SOUND OF TRUTH
HIS WORDS RIP OPEN THE PAIN
RELEASE THE DARKNESS
HIS GUITAR TEARS OUT THE EVIL

WHAT WAS ATTACKING
NOW IT SHOULD BE BANISHED

David Gilmour - Coming Back To Life

Coming Back To Life
By David Gilmour

Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life

I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the waiting had begun
And headed straight..into the shining sun

CREATIVE MUSINGS

for the fullest amazement & delight
open up video to full screen
watch & listen to the magnificent musician
she plays her heart from the light within
magical mystical astonishing visual dreamings
the music carries on through the mystification
once through do listen again
below is the short story with a long ending
but it is not as long as most long endings
it is a matter of the relative space
in the moment
it is a delicate story
read ever so slowly
ever so lightly
let the mind drift onto the images
and sensations
dream into the music
and out into the story
as long as it all lasts.

Minor – Janine Jansen

A Short Story With A Long Ending
by Jennifer Kiley

The rain had stopped.

I sat on a wooden bench under the red-leafed branches of the old maple tree.

The water had washed the air of all scents. What remained? The fresh smell of neutrality which cleansed the open area in the park.

She missed it. The young woman I was waiting excitedly to meet. I was a half hour late.

Would she leave realizing the importance of our making contact today?

Now.

I see her coming.

A smile is starting but I hesitate.

In slow motion, moments of an embrace lead into a kiss I feel will last forever. My death would come at the end of our lips melting into one.

But that moment will never come.

And time will be still until the ending of eternity.
