This one goes out to the one I love...

"First Day Of My Life"

(Bright Eyes)

This is the first day of my life

I swear I was born right in the doorway

I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed

They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw

I think I was blind before I met you

Now I don’t know where I am

I don’t know where I’ve been

But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I’d let you know

That these things take forever

I especially am slow

But I realize that I need you

And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night

Just to meet me in the morning

And I thought it was strange you said everything changed

You felt as if you'd just woke up

And you said “this is the first day of my life

I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you

But now I don’t care I could go anywhere with you

And I’d probably be happy”

So if you want to be with me

With these things there’s no telling

We just have to wait and see

But I’d rather be working for a paycheck

Than waiting to win the lottery

Besides maybe this time is different

I mean I really think you like me

'n Emmer vol see

Ek vang die see in `n emmer,
pak die son in my tas,
hang die hemel oor my skouers

Ek pars `n boom in `n boek,
rangskik die sterre in my oe
herhaal die winde met my mond

Ek bring die berg in my rugsak,
leen die maan as `n glimlag,
hou die reen in my hart

En so, met die aarde in my handpalm...
vind ek my God.

Marriage Proposal

Old man:  "Will you marry me?
Old woman:  "Why?"
Old man:  "It seems like a good idea"
Old woman:  "No"
Old man:  Okay, I'll try again tomorrow..."

Dementia 104

As we started our usual Friday Group in the Dementia Section (all that was different this week from the previous week is the green clothes of my 4th year OT student who joined in), Mrs S(ilence) who almost never says a word, took my student's hand and said:
 "You truly are the one"  "Let's run away together"
