being the confessions of a recovering hillwalker
The music aye helps when you're fed up though, doesn't it?It worked for me, at any rate.;0)
Aye that and a handful of antidepressants.
Oh dear! That's pretty much how I'm feeling too!
Hi Laura, Sorry to hear about le bras casse - it really gets you down when you can't sleep, doesn't it.Just get yourself on to Youtube and post us some of your favouritr clips.
Ah, I've had days like this. They're a bit miserable but they don't last forever. Get someone to moan at / lean on...it worked for me.As does music, singing and smiling. All amazingly good at lifting my mood.Chin up!JJ
Thanks, John. We're lucky to haver music as an important part of our lives.I'm also glad that, like everyone, I get down at times, but can soon shake it off - helps make the good times better - yin and yang, darkness and light etc.
Sympathy, eh?.....Okay. 'Cos it was good music. If it had been crap there wouldn't have been any.Chin up, OM.:-)
God, you're a hard, hard man, Sloman.
Aye, it can be right basturd at times. No Gods etc., is a powerful performance from Dick; always try to catch him gien the chance, great player with a unique rhythmic sense. And Cohen and the great Joplin line in the song's a classic. Good choice. Hope you cheer up a bit soon - maybe a pie supper'd do the trick, or a double nougat!
Hmm - double nougat wafer - I see you use the politically correct name :-)Dick was a great friend of Hamish Henderson (Seamus Mhor, as he called him) and recorded many of his songs. No Gods was written by Brian Mcneil of the legendary Battlefield Band, but the title comes from a line in Hamish;s Elegies for the dead in Cyrenaica.For anyone interested, the entire Hanful of Earth album is available on Youtube
Ah, I have the Battlefield Band on at the moment - for me to enjoy and for the annoyance of my lovely noisy neighbours.Isn't revenge a wonderful thing?!Now then , where's my practice chanter?JJ
Give them a blast of this !http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sj5Q_I6YAFU&feature=endscreen&NR=1
