Dismal Day after the Blizzard to you all...

Fitting for the day after a nasty blizzard - for those who hate this "Hallmark Holiday", Today's offering is from Simon and Garfunkel:


A winter's day
In a deep and dark December
I am alone
Gazing from my window
To the streets below
On a freshly fallen silent shroud of snow

I am a rock
I am an island

I've built walls
A fortress deep and mighty
That none may penetrate
I have no need for friendship
Friendship causes pain
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.

I am a rock
I am an island

Don't talk of love
Well, I've heard the word before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber
Of feelings that have died
If I'd never loved,
I never would have cried

I am a rock
I am an island

I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room
Safe within my womb
I touch no-one and no-one touches me

I am a rock
I am an island
And the rock feels no pain
And an island never cries

725 Days

    Bullshit

    Love, sweet love. I know Valentines Day mostly reflects on romantic love, but love of all kinds is something we need filled up to overflowing. Love something - a kitty, a pretty tea cup, a friend, a sweet song.

    Well two things. First off, that Simon and Garfunkle song is my theme song. It has been for years.

    Second, I love you, so there.
