This Is The First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes

This is a charming video and one I need to see the day after one of my dear friends died. Be sure to watch through to the end. Some really nice shots.

I'm dropping in to post this and will be away again for a while. Thinking of all of you, my readers and friends.


This is the first day of my life
I swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don’t know where I am
I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said “this is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me

Time off from the blog.

I'm still really swimmy from the rear-ender on our way home from Miami on Friday. Too dizzy and tired to try to post what I found out there. Just over this last year the readership of this blog has dropped from an average of over 60 a day, constant for years, down to a low of 12 and an average of more like 15 over the year. I don't have the energy to visit other blogs very often either.

So....I'm going to take care of the immediate problems and just post fun things (for me) as I feel like it and stop feeling an obligation to post. I love this blog so I don't plan to abandon it. I'm just at my energy limit /health limit right now and need to respect that and stop for now.

Well, it's my birthday Sunday July 18.....

....and I'm not yet telling how old I am:-)

A day of rest and a lobster tail for dinner. I'm ready for it!

This is my fifth, with my childhood home behind us. I'm the one holding the presents.

Stardust by the man who knows how to sing it

This really takes me back. I could play it over and over again. Today is my last day on CIPRO for an infection. I get goofy and it's not been easy, but necessary. Friday is my day to go back to Miami for the results of my blood work and recommendations. I'm eager to hear about those. We're combining it with my second visit in Nancy Klimas' good day bad day study since I'm due (every 6 months for a total of 4 visits). I don't have a lot of energy so I'll see how I do. The cognitive test on the computer is the hardest since images flash on and off the screen to test both skills and memory. I can't look at a flashing Christmas tree without feeling like I'm drifting into the ozone. My first time, first visit, I had to keep stopping to close my eyes for a few minutes. Wish me luck!
