When You Say Nothing At All
I woke up with Allison Krauss’s “When You Say Nothing at All” in my grey matter/inner voice – – not sure, still, just why, although as the day played out, I rather understood it better…..
But, as the ‘interaction’ portion of the day will soon retreat, once more, I’m remembering phases –
Something in Red comes to mind…
And I don’t even do red – for wardrobe, though some folks who love it swear it’s ‘my color’ – :). And I’m not looking for something to make a man stop dead, but still live around my immediate sphere – but I’m always think of this song when I’m pondering the ‘stages’ of many things – relationships, technology, skills, Life’s path, joys and challenges – –
But at end of non-hermitude moments day and back to my cave to ‘work some more’ with the silence of me own mind….HA!
I carry within me…the promise of and admonition to remember – for everything there is a season – sometimes it lasts long – sometimes, it’s but a moment –
Turn, Turn, Turn
Whether the Meanings of today’s inner music score are indicative of…
…anything in me or the greater world, in particular, or is needed, somewhere, for someone, remains to be seen – but, I had to report in/share – as I’ve been engaged recently on various fronts on the topics of songs, songs of the day and rather stuck on doing my own check in’s on this front –
For, doncha ya know?
Something might happen, in my ticker tape brain, that has meaning, but I don’t fully process it, recognize it until I examine it – and I further learn more while sharing it – 🙂
Or perhaps, one or both of us won’t –
That’s always a possibility, for this moment, now, our realities bump up against one another – me through sharing, you through reading – and in the end, on one hand, the moments are what make a life – and, in the end, I guess no matter what happens, or is happening or what have ya (I may be posting fluff during a serious to us all breaking news story I’m ignorant of…)
The collective of these moments is one that affects us all – for good or ill – at one point or another – –
Fave quotes from my ‘news’ fly by checkin with wider world about 13 hours ago –
News story link fro Tech/Biz World feed that is older, but spoke to me that provided these quotes:
“It’s one of those things where it just depends how it turns out,” says Chen. “If it turns out positively, it’s persistence. If it turns out badly, it’s stubbornness.”
“I have close friends of every race and gender identity, and from many different countries too, but I don’t really have low-income friends,” said former Blue Ridge Labs fellow Jonathan Stray in a blog post. “Fundamentally, I don’t understand poverty because I have very little occasion to talk to poor people.”
“We have companies that solve the problems of tech entrepreneurs, and that’s it,” says Chen. “If we had waited for somebody who was actively on food stamps to start this company, we might still be waiting, but at the same time, we now have three people in the company who were on food stamps at some point throughout their lives. We just hired a junior software engineer who was a user of the product when she joined the company.”
Anne Lamott Quote
This quote came to me courtesy of New Bloggy Cat – which you can visit right here in WP land – Yup, this one & the attributed author, came on my radar because New Bloggy Cat is one of my long time bloggy pals and email/snail mail pal, who ‘chats with me’ via many avenues – :).
“You will lose someone you can’t live without,and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”Anne Lamott (may not be the best link for verified quotes, but I surely like them, none the less…)
I bid you adieu – for now – as I hunker once more into silence, shielded from the outside world, we all share.
We both, shall see what’s what when the next moment or morrow arrives, shan’t we?
P.S. – Hadn’t ever even heard about her, but already falling in love with the personage who has been quoted, named Anne Lamott – :).
Pretty certain I’ll be sharing some of her quotes for quite some time to come…. :D. Thanks New Bloggy Cat for commenting and sharing!
