Let It Be.

Happy Monday, y’all. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. On Saturday we attended a wedding of a friend. It was a beautiful ceremony.

Sunday we went hiking.

Today, I’m in a musical mood. When am I not, right? Here’s one of my all time favorite songs. Listening to it always makes me feel peaceful and brings tears to my eyes. It speaks to my soul every time.

“When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be”

I Forgot That You Existed

 “The opposite of love is not hate; it is indifference.”

Let’s keep with the Taylor Swift theme for at least one more post. The last song I shared was dreamy and romantic, and definitely sums up where I am in life at the moment. i’m very much about love, commitment and all the good things in the world. However, I can also relate to this next song. I think we’ve all known this feeling too, the emotions that come with someone we care about lets us down or we discover they weren’t who we thought they were.

We go through a dark period when we think we can’t go on, only to end up in a place where indifference kicks in. I’m convinced that’s the place of healing. Of course, you wish them well, and remember lessons learned, but the hurt feelings don’t consume you anymore. Your emotions are no longer tied to that person or the past. “Now and then I think of when we were together…Now you’re just somebody that I used to know” Whatever happened to Gotye? That tune was so overplayed. Anyway, back to the topic at hand, once you let go of the anger and regret, you can finally move forward free of the emotional baggage. “It isn’t love. It isn’t hate. It’s indifference” Sing it, Tay Tay.

Lyrics

“How many days did I spend
Thinkin’ ’bout how did me wrong, wrong, wrong
Lived in the shade you were throwin’
‘Til all of my sunshine was gone, gone, gone
And I couldn’t get away from you
In my feelings more than Drake, so yeah
Your name on my lips, tongue tied
Free rent, livin’ in my mind
But then something happened one magical night
I forgot that you existed
And I thought that it would kill me, but it didn’t
And it was so nice
So peaceful and quiet
I forgot that you existed
It isn’t love, it isn’t hate
It’s just indifference
I forgot that you
Got out some popcorn
As soon as my rep starting going down, down, down
Laughed on the schoolyard
As soon as I tripped up and hit the ground, ground, ground
And I would’ve stuck around for ya
Would’ve fought the whole town, so yeah
Would’ve been right there front row
Even if nobody came to your show
But you showed who you are, then one magical night
I forgot that you existed
And I thought that it would kill me, but it didn’t
And it was so nice
So peaceful and quiet
I forgot that you existed
It isn’t love, it isn’t hate
It’s just indifference
I forgot that you
Sent me a clear message
Taught me some hard lessons
I just forget what they were
It’s all just a blur
I forgot that you existed
And I thought that it would kill me, but it didn’t
And it was so nice
So peaceful and quiet
I forgot that you existed
I did, I did, I did
It isn’t hate, it’s just indifference
It isn’t love, it isn’t hate
It’s just indifference (so yeah)
How many days did I spend
Thinkin’ ’bout how did me wrong, wrong, wrong
Lived in the shade you were throwin’
‘Til all of my sunshine was gone, gone, gone
And I couldn’t get away from you
In my feelings more than Drake, so yeah
Your name on my lips, tongue tied
Free rent, livin’ in my mind
But then something happened one magical night
I forgot that you existed
And I thought that it would kill me, but it didn’t
And it was so nice
So peaceful and quiet
I forgot that you existed
It isn’t love, it isn’t hate
It’s just indifference
I forgot that you
Got out some popcorn
As soon as my rep starting going down, down, down
Laughed on the schoolyard
As soon as I tripped up and hit the ground, ground, ground
And I would’ve stuck around for ya
Would’ve fought the whole town, so yeah
Would’ve been right there front row
Even if nobody came to your show
But you showed who you are, then one magical night
I forgot that you existed
And I thought that it would kill me, but it didn’t
And it was so nice
So peaceful and quiet
I forgot that you existed
It isn’t love, it isn’t hate
It’s just indifference
I forgot that you
Sent me a clear message
Taught me some hard lessons
I just forget what they were
It’s all just a blur
I forgot that you existed
And I thought that it would kill me, but it didn’t
And it was so nice
So peaceful and quiet
I forgot that you existed
I did, I did, I did
It isn’t hate, it’s just indifference
It isn’t love, it isn’t hate
It’s just indifference (so yeah)

Day by Day-Manganas Garden

A poem, lyrics and a wonderful tune. Happy Monday ❤️

“You used to hit and run
we put some records on
and let the music replace conversation
Unwise when you’re young
we are the sixteenth sons
of the lost and last generation
Oh we fight and run when you sing a song
About all we used to do until the break of dawn
Was born in the shade, (this will be our endless day.
On the top of the mountain, lead the way

Love. Love. Love

The love blog, soon we’ll be making another post. The love blog promises something for everyone or (whatever floats your “Love Boat”). Pretty sure only people of a certain age will get that dorky reference. Anyway, greetings y’all. How about some quotes on love to brighten our day? Happy 4th of July. We’re off to see the movie “Yesterday”. The reviews are fairly good so we’ll see. 💕 Here’s the trailer and then it about love.

Audrey Hepburn

If you keep giving up on people so quickly, you’re gonna miss out on something great.”

“Happily ever after is not a fairytale, it’s a choice”

-Fawn Weaver

It was the time when they loved each other best, without hurry or excess, when both were most conscious of and grateful for their incredible victories over adversity. Life would still present them with other mortal trails, of course, but that no longer mattered: they were on the other shore.

Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera
