Getting my mojo back

 

Getting my mojo back, originally uploaded by The Rambling Rountrees.

Still trying to get my blogging mojo back! It will happen. I think it is a compilation of the winter, the weather and needing a vacation!

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round…aaaaaahhhhhh

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high……aaaaaaaahhhh

Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you

Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue…….aaaaaaaahhhh

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh…. ~ The Beatles

Thinking of Summer

 

DSC01091, originally uploaded by The Rambling Rountrees.

Thinking of summer and when it will arrive again after a long and dark winter. My heart longs to see the ocean once again and feel the warm sun on my face. Can it really be that far away?

Mull of kintyre
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
My desire is always to be here
Oh mull of kintyre
Far have i traveled and much have i seen
Dark distant mountains with valleys of green.
Past painted deserts the sunset’s on fire
As he carries me home to the mull of kintyre.

Mull of kintyre
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
My desire is always to be here
Oh mull of kintyre

Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen
Carry me back to the days i knew then.
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
Of the life and the time of the mull of kintyre.

Mull of kintyre
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
My desire is always to be here
Oh mull of kintyre

Smiles in the sunshine
And tears in the rain
Still take me back to where my memories remain
Flickering embers growing higher and higher
As they carry me back to the mull of kintyre

Mull of kintyre
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
My desire is always to be here
Oh mull of kintyre

Mull of kintyre
Oh mist rolling in from the sea,
My desire is always to be here
Oh mull of kintyre ~ Paul McCartney

Her Majesty

 

Callie, originally uploaded by The Rambling Rountrees.

Update on my cat Callie. She is still recovering from breast cancer after having a mastectomy in November and having completed three rounds of chemotherapy. She still has two more treatments scheduled. Over all she is doing well, as well as can be expected. I wish her a successful recovery!

Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl,
but she doesn’t have a lot to say
Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl
but she changes from day to day
I want to tell her that I love her a lot
But I gotta get a bellyful of wine

Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl
Someday I’m going to make her mine, oh yeh,
someday I’m going to make her mine.

A Happy Valentine’s Day to Al!

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done.
Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It’s easy.
There’s nothing you can make that can’t be made.
No one you can save that can’t be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you
in time – It’s easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
There’s nothing you can know that isn’t known.
Nothing you can see that isn’t shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.
It’s easy.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
All you need is love (all together now)
All you need is love (everybody)
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

To Be….

 

BE, originally uploaded by The Rambling Rountrees.

All my life I had been looking for something, and everywhere I turned someone tried to tell me what it was. I accepted their answers too, though they were often in contradiction and even self-contradictory. I was naïve. I was looking for myself and asking everyone except myself questions which I, and only I, could answer. It took me a long time and much painful boomeranging of my expectations to achieve a realization everyone else appears to have been born with: that I am nobody but myself. ~Ralph Ellison,

The Italian Sun

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime. ~Mark Twain

Craving Spring

 

caprese, originally uploaded by The Rambling Rountrees.

After all the snow they has been dumped upon us, I am craving spring. As I look out my office window at the moment and witness soft white snow falling gracefully to the ground, I am reminded of how much I miss spring and summer. The winter white is beautiful in its own way, but I crave GREEN! About 8 more weeks of winter will descend upon us and we can look forward to a carpet of lush green to be rolled out in May. Only problem is…..”Can I wait the long?” How many more days til Spring? 🙂
