About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Happy Birthday Mack

My dear friend, A very Happy Birthday.

Sorry I could not be there to celebrate it with you.

I hope that the gift arrived safely and that you enjoy and cherish it.

I apologise for the times that I have made you sad or angry.

Hopefully you will remember and cherish more the times we have just understood each other and laughed.

A ruddy drop of manly blood
The surging sea outweighs,
The world uncertain comes and goes,
The lover rooted stays.
I fancied he was fled,
And, after many a year,
Glowed unexhausted kindliness
Like daily sunrise there.
My careful heart was free again, --
O friend, my bosom said,
Through thee alone the sky is arched,
Through thee the rose is red,
All things through thee take nobler form,
And look beyond the earth,
And is the mill-round of our fate
A sun-path in thy worth.
Me too thy nobleness has taught
To master my despair;
The fountains of my hidden life
Are through thy friendship fair.

from RWE

Take care and be well.

Wifey dear, I published early but still dated 2 Feb. Mack, thanks, I am glad you like both the blog and picture. This is why I told you that you need a nice 50mm. I did not do any post processing for the pic. And have a great one.
