Your “vision” defines your life

by Jyoti Meena

One can focus on the thorns and feel the tingling sensation..
Or one can converge all the thoughts and vision on the petals and gratify the beautiful colours and patterns of the petals..
One can choose to heed on the leaves which are drying and defoliating..
Or one can look at the newbie bud which is yet to bloom and spread it’s soothing fragrance..
It’s all about how you see things through “YOUR EYES”…
Following the world blindly won’t make you wise…
So believe in your vision because “your vision defines your life”

My better half has been visiting her family back in Liverpool, England for the last seven weeks.  Her mum is doing poorly (Parkinson and dementia) and we thought she might pass when she developed pneumonia two months ago.  My Hil went back to be with her.   Her mum bucked up and has stabilized, but she is still in hospice, so Hil is coming home.
I’ve missed Hil terribly and this song always makes me think about her and smile…
The title is: “Your Song“.  The performer is: Sir Elton John.  And, my favorite line is:  “How wonderful life is while you’re in the world.

A Place We Knew

I can picture you now,
taking your makeup off
You come into my room
and you kiss my lips
But this hotel life,
I’m not used to it
And you wear your heart
right on your sleeve
But it took you a while
to open up to me
I still love the way
that you smile when you leave,
mm
And I know you get scared
when I’m away
But I think about you
almost all the day, yeah
And I promised you that I’d
be back again
Just can you remember?
Oh can you remember when we were
Dancing in hotel rooms
It was just me and you
And we wouldn’t sleep all night
With you sitting by my side
And every moment
we had stolen was a feeling
‘Cause it never mattered
Where we were,
’cause we were falling in love
‘Cause your heart is my home,
your heart is my home
Your heart is my home,
and I’m not letting go
When I was feeling down,
you always picked me up
It didn’t matter what
I was doing wrong
’cause
I’ve lived my life without you
for too long
But when I walked in the door
and I saw your face
Ooh, I knew in that moment,
that my world had changed
How can I live my life
since you’ve been and gone?
But can you remember?
Just try to remember when we were
Dancing in hotel rooms
It was just me and you
And we wouldn’t sleep all night
With you sitting by my side
And every moment
we had stolen was a feeling
‘Cause it never mattered
Where we were,
’cause we were falling in love
‘Cause your heart is my home,
your heart is my home
Your heart is my home,
and I’m not letting go
But in any single moment you can change
‘Cause I’ve been gone so long and I can feel you slip away
but I’m getting closer and closer
Can you remember?
Just try to remember when we were
Dancing in hotel rooms
It was just me and you
We wouldn’t sleep all night
With you sitting by my side
And every moment
we had stolen was a feeling
‘Cause it never mattered
Where we were,
’cause we were falling in love
‘Cause your heart is my home,
your heart is my home
Your heart is my home,
and I’m not letting go
‘Cause your heart is my home,
and your heart is my home
Your heart is my home,
and I’m not letting go
‘Cause your heart is my home,
and your heart is my home
Oh, your heart is my home,
and I’m never letting go

If a man comes to the door of poetry untouched by the madness of the Muses, believing that technique alone will make him a good poet, he and his sane compositions never reach perfection, but are utterly eclipsed by the performances of the inspired madman.

Sometimes you love a person so much you have to walk away.  Sometimes, for them; sometimes for you.  This song reminds me of that…

I grew up with divorced parents, back in the day when 90% of marriages / parents stayed together.  My mom raised my sister, brother and me all on her own.  It was difficult.  We were a handful.  I appreciate it more every year (particularly now that my own three are full grown).  The song / video below is about a dad who looks after his son.  When I hear it, though, I hear a song about a parent / provider who looks after his (or her) children.  Happy 92nd Birthday, mom.  Thanks for being my role model.
Love,
Kevin
