Observe the world now
For it is not meant to last
An image on film

Okay, I still don't know what this means? And I first saw this film 40 years ago. I just wanted to express myself before Valentine's Day is long lost to history in 2018.

My guess is this: If you truly love somebody, then there is no need for an apology - even when you have done something wrong?  Forgiveness is all? Or perhaps it is silent? As long as the love is mutual.

What are your thoughts on the subject?  I'd really like to know...

P.S. This post is inspired by Jon @ Lone Wolf Concerto.  His blog is one of the best to be found. Give it a very long peek :-)

I found an old book in the
gutter today: A battered blue
hardcover unwanted by the
world. It had been kicked
about by a brutal foot - more
than a few pages were wrinkled
and torn. So I plucked it up
and carried it home. After I
wiped off some of the dirt
I saw a cover as blue as
the sea. I wiped some more
until a familiar face appeared -
the Belle Of Amherst - my breath
stood still - Emily Dickinson in
the gutter? Imagine that! Her
good poems once fed my hungry
heart, when the busy world
wouldn't throw me a bone. Now
I'd plucked her from the gutter,
and given her a better home -
so who really saved whom?
