Afternoon Delight/Starland Vocal Band

What Other  Guy'/Adam Cohen
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONaWluTDSE8&ob=av2n

When, I am travelling in my car throughout my day,  I usually listen to CBC Radio.  It is always interesting, to
hear what kind of music they play.  It is funny though, that when you get out of your car, the last song that you
heard is the one that keeps running through your head, until you hear another one!  (These are all what I call
eclectic songs, CBC radio has to play a certain amount of Canadian content, so this selection of songs is not
relevent by itself.)

"THE SECRET"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIRFE_1huMc

THE ROAD NOT TAKEN.....

THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED
          BY ROBERT FROST
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
      And sorry I could not travel both
       And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
  To where it bent in the undergrowth;


 Then took the other, as just as fair,         
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
  Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,


  And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
   Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
   I doubted if I should ever come back.


   I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
   I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference

COMING HOME

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ixP0d8klLvI


THE FAR-FARERS
               ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON


The broad sun,
The bright day:
White sails
On the blue bay:
The Far-Farers
Draw away.


Light the fires
And close the door.
To old homes,
To the loved shore,
The Far-Farers
Return no more.

.....NOT GIVING IN....

"You just keep pushing.  You just keep pushing.  I made every mistake that could be made.  But I just kept pushing."
                                                          -----Rene Descartes-----

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wx4v6cO1GMk

We all want to have what we need.  It may not seem important to anyone else, but to each one of us, it is the be all and end all.  Never give up, on what you want, it will come to you, in its own time!

Final thought:

"WHEN A THING IS DONE, IT'S DONE.  DON'T LOOK BACK, LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR NEXT OBJECTIVE."
                                                               -----George C. Marshall-----

MY FAVORITE RELATIONSHIP QUOTES

"TWO PERSONS WHO HAVE CHOSEN EACH OTHER OUT OF ALL THE SPECIES WITH A DESIGN TO BE EACH OTHERS MUTUAL COMFORT AND ENTERTAINMENT HAVE IN THIS ACTION, BOUND THEMSELVES TO BE GOOD HUMORED, AFFABLE, DISCREET, FORGIVING, PATIENT AND JOYFUL, WITH RESPECT TO EACH OTHER'S FRAILTIES AND PERFECTIONS TO THE END OF THEIR LIVES."
                                            -----Joseph Addison-----(1672-1719)

WHERE IN THE WORLD.......?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=knjNjd-Ua4M

"iF YOU HAVEN'T FOUND IT YET, KEEP LOOKING.  DON'T SETTLE.  AS WITH ALL MATTERS OF THE HEART, YOU'LL KNOW WHEN YOU FIND IT, AND, LIKE ANY GREAT RELATIONSHIP, IT JUST GETS BETTER AND BETTER AS THE YEARS ROLL ON."
                                                             -----STEVE JOBS-----


As with everything else, in this life, Love of job, person or just life in general,  they all come to you.
You get what you want.   You get what  you attract.  Attract all the good things in this life.  They are what we all want....Having life is a beautiful thing....ENJOY!


( If, you are into music, check out a great song, HAVEN'T MET YOU YET sung by Michael Buble.)


LIFE IS THE FIRST GIFT
           By Marge Piercy


Life is the first gift,
Love is the second,
And understanding the third.


The chance to love and be loved
Exists no matter where you are.


In matters of the heart,
Nothing is true
Except the improbable.


And what do all the great words come to in the end, but that?
I Love You--I am at rest with you--I have come home.
