Day 303

Today I heard this song by ‘Everything But The Girl’ for the first time and loved it.

“I step off the train
I’m walking down your street again
And past your door, but you don’t live there anymore
It’s years since you’ve been there
Now you’ve disappeared somewhere, like outer space
You’ve found some better place

And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

Could you be dead?
You always were two steps ahead, of everyone
We’d walk behind while you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you shout down to me
Where I always used to be

And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain

Back on the train, I ask why did I come again?
Can I confess, I’ve been hanging round your old address?
And the years have proved
To offer, nothing since you’ve moved
You’re long gone, but I can’t move on

And I miss you, like the deserts miss the rain”

We went for a long walk with a friend today and had a few good laughs. At the end I gave her a hug and said softly, ”You are sweet.” In response she said with a big smile, ”I am a real bitch.” We both burst out laughing. Comedy was something he really enjoyed, especially stand-up. One of his favourites was Paul Chawdhry, a young British man of Asian origin. We often watched video clips of his shows together. Here is one he mimicked to perfection. I could almost hear him say some of the words and make some of those face expressions. Even though it made me laugh, I missed him like the deserts miss the rain.

Music and humour are known to heal.
It was a good day.
