It’s Too Late Baby

Favorite Line(s):
It used to be so easy,
Livin’ here with you
You were light and breezy,
And I knew just what to do
Now you look so unhappy
And I feel like a fool

My life has been a tapestry
Of rich and royal hue
An everlasting vision
Of the ever-changing view
A wond’rous woven magic
In bits of blue and gold
A tapestry to feel and see
Impossible to hold
[A few days ago, I got word of an old friend’s passing (from COVID).  This makes two friends in less than a month.  This friend was a nurse who I bumped into at the ER over ten years ago when I went there for heart issues.  She didn’t recognize me as it had been almost 35 years since we’d seen each other.  I said she reminded me of someone I used to know back in the 1970’s in San Francisco and she got excited as she remembered me, too.  Anyway, I was having heart issues and she triaged me into the back area for an immediate IV and care.  The ER doctor said I was lucky as for most men my age (early 50’s back then), the first sign of heart problems is your face hitting the floor.  He said most men are “too tough” to admit they have a problem when they start to feel “a little” chest pain, and then their family is burying them.  So, in a very real way, this friend from the past helped to save my life.  This song came to mind as I was thinking about her passing.  The song is kind of sad (to me).  She was NOT like that at all.  She was enthusiasm, laughter and infectious smiles.  I guess, the song came to mind because it reminds me of the tapestry of our lives weaving in and out of other’s lives creating a vision we don’t really see until we’re well beyond the current moment.  I wish I’d been able to see her before her passing, so I could’ve thanked her for these extra years to work on my tapestry.   —  KMAB]

Up On The Roof

(Up on the roof…)
(Up on the roof…)
When this old world starts getting me down
And people are just too much for me to face
(Up on the roof…)
I climb way up to the top of the stairs
And all my cares just drift right into space
(Up on the roof…)
On the roof it’s peaceful as can be
And there the world below can’t bother me
Let me tell you now
When I come home feeling tired and beat
I go up where the air is fresh and sweet
(Up on the roof…)
I get away from the hustling crowds
And all that rat race noise down in the street
(Up on the roof…)
On the roof’s the only place I know
Where you just have to wish to make it so
Let’s go
Up on the roof
(Up on the roof…)
At night the stars put on a show for free
And darling you can share it all with me
I keep-a tellin’ you
Right smack dab in the middle of town
I found a Paradise that’s trouble-proof
(Up on the roof…)
And if this world starts getting you down
There’s room enough for two up on the roof
Up on the roof
(Up on the roof…)
Up on the roof
(Up on the roof…)
Oh, come on baby
(Up on the roof…)
Oh, come on honey
(Up on the roof…)
