03.13.16 – End of Day Notes

What I did today: My feet did not cooperate last night, so I was up until about 9 am this morning. I got a few writing projects done. Still feeling crappy, I decided to take some cold medicine and go back to bed. I slept until dinner was ready, about 3 pm. I ate, watched one episode of the original Star Trek and then went back to bed. I didn’t wake up again until about 30 mins ago. There is a good chance I may be up all night.

What I learned today: Given the chance, my body love sleep. Craves it, even. And if induced , I will sleep as long as I can.

What I am most proud of today:  I wasn’t awake long enough to actually be proud of anything. Maybe that is something to be proud of.. I slept. Hmmmm?

What did you do today? Learn any lessons? Have a reason to be proud? Share your thoughts with me in the comments!

Song Lyric Sunday – New Horizon by Lord

for Song Lyric Sunday


I had this name pop up on my Twitter feed. They’d just followed me. It was an Australian band named Lord. The name alone intrigued me, so of course I had to check them out. And OMG! They are incredible. Rock, old-style. I may not be a rock star, but the lyrics do speak to me. The choice of a lonely life – mine more solitary than lonely, but I really grok these lyrics. I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have been this week.

Lord – New Horizons Lyrics @ SongLyrics

Another city passes in the darkness
Another country come and gone
And on this never ending road I wander
Seems like I’m always on the run

[Chorus 1:]
So long ago
I chose this lonely road
To follow new horizons
So far to roam
A million miles from home
So many more to go…

In another life I could have been the everyman
Another tale untold for me
Cursed by the gypsy’s kiss and driven onward
To reap the winds, forever free

[Chorus 2:]
So long ago
I chose this lonely road
To follow new horizons

So far to roam
But one thing I know
One day I’ll find that road
That takes me home

[Solo: LT / Pete Lesperance]

Another plane, another train
Another thousand miles of road
And one more day, I’ll find my way
Home to you…

Now I sit here waiting in the darkness
My thoughts a million miles away
Of all the things I’ve done, all the sights and wonder
Not one thing could make me stay (one more day)

[Repeat chorus 2 x2]

[Solo: LT]

Artist: Lord
Album: Set In Stone
Genre: Rock
