LAPC: Surprise!

We have so many surprises in life. Unfortunately, it is rare for me to get a picture of it – such as the swans on one of our lakes mating! Another resident here, a wily older man from Germany, took a series of pictures of the swans’ mating ritual – before, during, and after – […]

Song Lyrics Sunday: Isolation

This is a John Lennon song that I never heard before, and it fits this week’s theme for Song Lyrics Sunday with the prompts Alone/Confined/Depressed/Isolated/Restless/Solo . After listening to several other songs that fit the prompt, I chose this one because I have always been a big fan of the Beatles and John’s solo career. […]

Song Lyrics Sunday

I found so many good songs featuring the precious gems that are the theme of Jim Adams’ Song Lyrics Sunday this week! But I love Joan Baez and this an “oldie but goodie” from her 1975 album entitled Diamonds and Rust. The title song is one she wrote herself, in November 1974, about her relationship […]
