Neil Young, Harvest Moon, and Mr Jacqueline.
Some time back, Jacqueline over at Beauty in the ordinary posted this beautiful song for her husband, who had been going through some rough times.
Certain musicians just amaze me. Take a simple tune, a perfect arrangement, serious musicianship, attractive girly singers who know their job, and a straight-forward voice to pass on the message; what more could one want from a love song? I've been listening to this ever since Jacqueline posted it on her site.
The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone (except the obdurate and dictatorial) is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 46 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away; we also have a Border Collie called Billy. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
