For 3/28/18 #1linerWeds.

Many will debate me on this.  Go ahead.  These are not my words, I borrowed them ya see. Now scram. Just kidding. Without further ado:

Do you want to be right? or Do you want to be happy?

The goals of each are mutually exclusive.  And I agree wholeheartedly.  Lately I am learning that happiness outweighs being right ALL THE TIME!

Stick around and take a look at all the other one liners Rules and Pingback

Miss Goodie Two Shoes, always giving advice as if the world would just fucking collapse if she didn’t have something to say about every damn thing.  Know-It-All.  Gives the rest of us girls a bad name, servant goddess to men. Kissing up and batting those big eyes.  I wonder if she believed half the Betty Crocker bullshit she dished out.

J-Dub’s Review Of the Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo

Beginning with the tragedy of 9/11 and ending with a tragic death, this story is told in short chapters from the viewpoint of the protagonist Lucy Maxwell.  As is my usual modus operandi, I will not give any spoilers.  Simply put, this fictional account reads like real life.  I felt as if I was reading a private journal.  The perpetual questions are asked but remain unanswered which makes moving through the story easy and seamless.  One cannot wait to see what’s next and by asking questions, Lucy seems more human.  Perfectly flawed.  This is a love story full of lessons and choices.  Unlimited possibilities juxtaposed against safety and settling.

For the first time in forever, I have nothing to add to my commonplace book.  I am not sure why.  There is a line or two worth keeping yet maybe I have seen them somewhere else before.  Predictable almost grasps the feeling that this story is more tried and true than original.

Ambiguous enough?  Have I intrigued you?  Recommended read if only for the list of others books at the end. A solid 4 out of 5 stars.

As always, more to come.

Look at me being all new and everything.  I pick the modernized version of the badge for this post’s featured photo.  I am still spreading the word.  Sign up now!  Before April 1st.  No fooling.  Corny but I love saying that.

I have written .34615384461538462 percent of my posts.  Hey! Math geniuses … ya you.  I’m talking to you … all Bob De Niro-ish.  Can you guess the number that equates to?  I am not being flippant.  I know someone out there … or several someones can take a look and bam! give the answer. Math is not now and never has been my strong suit.

And while I am at it.  Here is a plug for WRiTE Club.  Sharing this link again.  Be sure to Z Zip on over to main stage.

Song Lyric Sunday – Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall

Spreading the happy! Listen and enjoy 🙂

This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time

I first heard this song during a time in my life when I was unsure of so many things.  I listened to it over and over again.  It didn’t actually help me gain more self-confidence, but it was a great catalyst.

I’ve also been waiting for a chance to post something from KT Tunstall.

I hope you enjoy!

Her face is a map of the world
Is a map of the world
You can see she’s a beautiful girl
She’s a beautiful girl
And everything around her is a silver pool of light
The people who surround her feel the benefit of it
It makes you calm
She holds you captivated in her palm
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be
Suddenly I see (suddenly I see)
Why the hell it means so much to me
(Suddenly I see)
This is what I wanna be

 “See You Again”
(feat. Charlie Puth)
(from “Furious 7” soundtrack)

[Charlie Puth:]
It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again
(Hey)

[Wiz Khalifa:]
Damn, who knew?
All the planes we flew
Good things we’ve been through
That I’ll be standing right here talking to you
‘Bout another path
I know we loved to hit the road and laugh
But something told me that it wouldn’t last
Had to switch up
Look at things different, see the bigger picture
Those were the days
Hard work forever pays
Now I see you in a better place (see you in a better place)

Uh
How can we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gon’ be with me for the last ride

[Charlie Puth:]
It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again (I see you again)
We’ve come a long way (yeah, we came a long way) from where we began (you know we started)
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again (let me tell you)
When I see you again

(Aah oh, aah oh
Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
Yeah

[Wiz Khalifa:]
First you both go out your way
And the vibe is feeling strong
And what’s small turn to a friendship
A friendship turn to a bond
And that bond will never be broken
The love will never get lost (and the love will never get lost)
And when brotherhood come first
Then the line will never be crossed
Established it on our own
When that line had to be drawn
And that line is what we reach
So remember me when I’m gone (remember me when I’m gone)

How can we not talk about family when family’s all that we got?
Everything I went through you were standing there by my side
And now you gon’ be with me for the last ride

[Charlie Puth:]
So let the light guide your way, yeah
Hold every memory as you go
And every road you take, will always lead you home, home

It’s been a long day without you, my friend
And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
We’ve come a long way from where we began
Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again
When I see you again

(Aah oh)
(Uh)
(Aah oh)
(Yeah)
(Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Ya, ya)
When I see you again
(Uh)
See you again
(Wooooh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Yeah, yeah, uh-huh)
When I see you again

I hope you enjoy as much as I do!
As always, more to come.

She could end her with the words left unspoken

The opinions conflicted

What to do?

The so called experts had told her for years not to say anything

To stand back and watch

To support without conditions

They did not understand how hard it was to watch someone die

The longest, slowest, most painful death of indifference

Of self-loathing and hatred

She turned the words of the one person to ever suggest a conversation over in her brain

Not saying it doesn’t mean it is not true

Deflected truths added to the lock box

She knew speaking the truths would not change anything

She knew her subject was in deep denial

The kind that can lead to psychosis

As always, more to come.
