"So I try a little Freddie..."

A fabulous reminder of why I fell in love with music.

A fantastic talent I discovered a couple of weeks ago, Mika (man? band? Freddie Mercury's reincarnation?) sings "Grace Kelly" with a chutzpah and energy that immediately brings back Queenly memories. The plaintive melody "Why don't you like me, why don't you like me, without making me try?" hits home, and how!

Luurve itt!!

Washed away

A few feet away, the sea roared
She wiped away the stray tear
Time occasionally stands still, but Distances expand
At least the ones that didn't matter before

She walked on the sand
Dragging her feet
Leaving imprints of her memories
Recalling that evening

Now that she had lost it all
There was nothing more to lose
She stopped and carved the word
They once wrote in the sand

Knowing it will be swallowed by the sea

Inspiration at last. From this. Sorry, Parth! Don't know where that came from, but when I read it, I couldn't help thinking there must be another side to it...and maybe this is it.
Terribly bereft of ideas and patience and muses and all that. Shameless 'inspiration' must suffice for now.
