Once upon a time…

Time has a wonderful way of showing us what really matters…

Songs shared by you: Comin’ back to me

When we are both moody…


 Comin’ Back To Me

The summer had inhaled

And held its breath too long
The winter looked the same
As if it never had gone
And through an open window
Where no curtain hung
I saw you, I saw you
Comin’ back to me
One begins to read between
The pages of a look
The shape of sleepy music
And suddenly you’re hooked
Through the rain upon the trees
The kisses on the run
I saw you, I saw you
Comin’ back to me
You came to stay and live my way
Scatter my love like leaves in the wind
You always say you won’t go away
But I know what it always has been
It always has been
A transparent dream
Beneath an occasional sigh
Most of the time
I just let it go by
Now I wish it hadn’t begun
I saw you, yes, I saw you
Comin’ back to me
Strolling the hills
Overlooking the shore
I realize I’ve been here before
The shadow in the mist
Could have been anyone
I saw you, I saw you
Comin’ back to me
Small things like reasons
Are put in a jar
Whatever happened to wishes
Wished on a star?
Was it just something
That I made up for fun?
I saw you, I saw you

Songs shared by you: Today

And here’s the lyrics from http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/jeffersonairplane/today.html



Today, I feel like pleasing you

More than before
Today, I know what I want to do
But I don’t know what for
To be living for you
Is all I want to do
To be loving you
It’ll all be there
When my dreams come true

Today, you’ll make me say
That I somehow have changed
Today, you’ll look into my eyes
I’m just not the same
To be any more than all I am
Would be a lie
I’m so full of love
I could burst apart
And start to cry

Today, everything you want
I swear it will all come true
Today, I realize how much
I’m in love with you
With you standing here
I could tell the world
What it means to love
To go on from here
I can’t use words
They don’t say enough

Please, please listen to me
It’s taken so long to come true
It’s all for you, all for you

August Adventures (1)



Varsity Theater on the Ave, an afternoon show of Hercules, and I had the whole auditorium to myself. Was scared!


Beautiful view of Mt Rainier from Lake Washington, Magnuson Park. It’s worth the 2.8 mile walk in the sun from U Village. My first serious walk on the Burke-Gilman Trail.


And here is where I thought I would come play in the water. My Moroccan friend, however, took me to a different beach nearby where there are more people swimming.


The big gravels was initially my concern, but then I saw a woman walking into the water with her sandals on. I wonder how it feels to swim with sandals…


And these lovely shells came in the mail last week. The sender was as silly as always to use a big package for these little things. Imagine you put a hamburger in a refrigerator and mail the whole thing…

Sunrise hunter

Two early mornings in a row means I have had a chance to see the sunrise. Yesterday the colors were quite unusual, blue, purple, gray, very different from the usual reddish or pinkish sunrises I have often seen. But too bad I was not able to capture those colors. The whole thing is blocked by all the tall trees in the neighbor’s garden. Later that lovely set of colors disappeared and this is all I have





This morning I was much later, and the sun had already been pretty high. Jet trails make interesting shapes in the sky




A quiet day. Not much contact with the world. But at least able to catch up with my readings. About time to forget about relationships and focus on my work?
