Goodness. I seem to have gone brain dead (or brain deader) and can’t think of much to say. Nothing of value, anyway. I just returned from Alaska and maybe I indulged in too much visual and sensual stimulation (there can be no question that I indulged in a few other things to excess, too) and it has sucked any remaining vestiges of creativity out of me.
I just thought that I should post something to indicate signs of life.
And I have been a bit nostalgic.
I am a bit nostalgic quite a lot, to be honest.
So I entitled this post ‘It’s only love’ because, right now, I think everything is about love (certainly every story or silly poem I have ever written is about love in one way or another) but it really doesn’t have to mean that much …. you know? It’s only love. Get over it.
And the picture above is of my old pals Mike and Bill (Bill left the planet a few years ago, alas) but they did once produce a little tune with the same title as my post.
You can listen to it here if you wish.
And they did another song called ‘Disco Dilemma’ which I understood so well …. but if you weren’t a male in the 70’s it would mean nothing to you. But the last few lines echoed a teenage experience for me ….
She can’t hear what you’re saying
Another record is playing
So you don’t get to say
As you push through the crowd
The music’s playing so loud
No one hears you’ve got tears
In your eye
As I say …. I’m feeling a little nostalgic and melancholy.
But this is just me saying hello, really.
