~Yesterday...



Well, at least I can remember it like yesterday. And I know it looks like we stepped out of the 1950's...and yes, that is a scarf tied around my ponytail...but it was actually 1988. This was Jon and I on a hot date at the Calgary International Airport. We thought we'd duck into the photo booth for a little fun...I was listening to Deb Talan, and going through a box of old photos this morning...and these were at the bottom. Ahhhh.....bliss! :)

I love her song 'A Kinder Columbus', and was hoping to find a video on youtube...but alas, there isn't one...so instead here are the lyrics to this beautiful song...

an open sea by darkest night
still deep water and crossing
is made by faith starlight
the mystery was over
shifting oceans and changes
in topography
in dreams
we were swept together
when i awoke he was next to me
he is my columbus
sailed all around my heart opened
my assumptions lemons of light
in the dark there is nothing
i could hold away from him
like a native giving gifts
received with gentleness
he is my kinder columbus
dancing down a sidewalk
pasta honeysuckle moon such
tenderness and his head against mine
full blown technicolor
my eyes were blind
he is my columbus
sailed all around
my heart opened
my assumptions lemons of light
in the dark there is nothing
i could hold away from him
like a native giving gifts
received with gentleness
he is my kinder columbus
he'll never know how much
his loving me allowed me
to begin i didn't think anyone
would want to travel with me
all the way in i did not think
i would ever discover him he
is my columbus sailed all
around my heart opened
my assumptions lemons of light
in the dark there is nothing
i could hold away from him
like a native giving gifts
received with gentleness
he is my kinder columbus

Wishing you peace...love...and someone warm and wonderful to wrap yourself around this weekend. :)

The photo is beautiful. Two beautiful people always in love. Cousin George is jealous of Jon and his one and only "Yogo Ono"
Have a nice weekend!

Oh this speaks to my soul...these lyrics. I have recently found my very own sweet Columbus...who literally sailed the sea to find me. I need to find this song!

Thank you for sharing this lovely song and your wonderful pictures. Your love is so strong and steadfast.

Here's to love

Oh goodness, I do so love coming across these treasures...it brings you back in time, doesn't it? I've been with Cean for 18 years now, and every so often, I love digging into our old letters. These are are wonderful.xo
