“Parting is all we know of heaven and all we need to know of hell.” - Emily Dickinson
A very busy Saturday today, which was all spent proof-reading my pathology textbook. Reading proofs of a book about to be published is a little bit of an anti-climax. Once the book has been written and it has gone to the publisher, one wants it to be off one’s hands and out there. The proofs and the jolly hard work one has to do going through them with a fine tooth comb making sure all the T’s are crossed and all the I’s are dotted is a boring but essential task. And so it was today, but I managed to get through four chapters…
Tonight was a quiet night spent all alone. And this song is dedicated to the one I wish were here, but who is travelling…
I hear the ticking of the clock I'm lying here the room's pitch dark I wonder where you are tonight No answer on the telephone And the night goes by so very slow Oh I hope that it won't end though Alone
CHORUS: Till now I always got by on my own I never really cared until I met you And now it chills me to the bone How do I get you alone How do I get you alone
You don't know how long I have wanted To touch your lips and hold you tight You don't know how long I have waited You don't know how long I have waited And I was gonna tell you tonight But the secret is still my own And my love for you is still unknown Alone
How do I get you alone How do I get you alone Alone, alone
I have been blogging daily on this platform for several years now. It is surprising that I have persisted as the world is changing and "microblogging" is now the norm. I blog to amuse myself, make comment on current affairs, externalise some of my creativity, keep notes on things that interest me, learn something new and to surprise myself with things that I discover about this wonderful, and sometimes crazy, world we live in.
I sometimes get the impression that I am on a soapbox delivering a monologue, so your comments are welcome.
