Shine on the ones I love

I see the moon the moon sees me
Down through the leaves of the old oak tree
Back where my heart is longing to be
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the ones I love

Over the mountain over the sea
Back where my heart is longing to be
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the ones I love
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the ones I love

I kissed the rose the rose kissed me
Fragrant as only a rose can be
Please take the kiss that comforts me
Back to the ones I love

* I think I would like to go to the Bodies Exhibit.

* I received 2 marriage proposals yesterday. Both from married men. Both from men over 80. One of the gentlemen remarked, "Where you go, I will go". I hated to point out that this was one promise he would not be likely to keep.

* I booked my flights to go home for Christmas and I'm bringing my little brother back to Winnipeg with me for a visit.

* I had a terrible dream two nights ago, and it involved several of the elderly residents and I in prison wasn't pretty. There was vomit and fistfights.

* I now have a little heater in my room, and it is making my world a happier place.

* I have already managed to loose my mittens, and it hasn't even snowed yet. This is probably a record, and yet somehow not surprising.

* I have been listening to Aqualung lately.

Autumn Tunes

Do you ever look back on your life and connect certain life experiences to the music you were listening to at the time? As Autumn is now in full swing I thought I would share some of the music that I have been enjoying in this season of my life.

1. Arcade Fire: I have been greatly enjoying their lastest album.

2. The National: I just love his voice. Sigh.

3. Jordan Klassen: I keep playing "Harvest March" over and over. "Where oh death, is your sting, is your victory?"

4. Peter Broderick: Pure, contemplative beauty.

5. Passion Pit: They warm my heart.

6. Freelance Whales: I feel creative just listening to them. I love watching them perform as they are constantly switching instruments.

7. Noah and the Whale: They sing to a certain part of my soul.

8. Said the Whale: I think they are just such a nifty band. Plus they are Canadian. Plus they are from BC.

9. Vince Vaccaro: He is so dreamy and cool.

10. And lastly, the 2010 FIFA World Cup music. I don't talk about sports on my blog very often. Perhaps because I have so many embarrassing moments associated with them in my past. However, soccer is the sport that I stuck with the longest, and is the dearest to my heart.

Here comes the bombshell...

"If you look at the horizon
there is always something ducking out of sight
When you’re looking at the treetops
and they’re scratching out their patterns in the sky
Look up, open the clouds
Here comes the bombshell
On the way home…"
