Hello Out There...

Yes, I'm still here - just every single piece of my life is changing. Goodness, I've heard of midlife crisis but I thought that was when you bought a red sports car, or moved to the Bahamas or took up with a younger man....nope, I haven't done any of those things. Some choices I made for myself and some were made for me. For now let's leave it at that...

"Magpie" from the album, The Magic Position (2007): a duet with Patrick Wolf and Marianne Faithfull

PATRICK: magpie, was it you who stole the wedding ring? or what other thieving bird would steal such hope away? magpie, i am lost among the hinterland, caught among the bracken and the fern and the boys who have no name.

MARIANNE: there's no name for us.

PATRICK: still we sing.

MARIANNE: and still we sing. little boy, little boy, lost and blue, listen now, let me tell you what to do. you can run on, run along, alone or home between the knees of her; all among her bracken and her ferns and the boy will have a name.

BOTH: we will sing.

MARIANNE: and we will sing.

MARIANNE: one for sorrow.

PATRICK: two for joy.

MARIANNE: three for a girl.

PATRICK: four for a boy.

MARIANNE: five for silver.

PATRICK: six for gold.

MARIANNE: seven for a secret, never to be told.

Younger men hate to be teased. I know; I was one.

saw a really cool photograph the other day and thought of you ... hope things are not too crazy, although it sounds like they might be. Up for a Thursday night at B&N this week?
