Make love not war! now those were the days! good music, good vibes,


What's up bro?

The timbre of your posts recently have a distinctively downbeat feel to them. I get there occasionally, when I feel that time is finally catching up with me as well. Seems you are starting to reflect upon times past more and more as well. Seems I've been doing the same thing also here recently. Is it this forum, where we are the ancients? We spend our time (Plavt included) trying dispense wisdom as we have known and lived it. Are we just dinosaurs? Have we outlived our usefulness? Horrifying thought isn't it.

on the flip side, having lived outside of your own country long enough, it may be difficult moving back there

at least this is something I still grapple with, despite family and friends growing up and growing older and not being there for that

This is something that has bothered me as well recently. I went from '85 to '96 without ever stepping foot into the US. It only since about 2000 that I've started going back occasionally. I do find it different but the fact that I'm somewhat of a loner (even with a family) I'm pretty self contained in that respect and being a farmboy I'm more in tune with nature than with people - witness my constant rubbing fur the wrong way here! :wink:

Dedicated to ksl and SMS:

Those were the days, my friend
We thought they'd never end
We'd sing and dance forever and a day
We'd lived the life we chose
We'd fight and never lose
Those were the days, oh yes those were the days

La la la la la la, la la la la la...

Oh! The Welsh Valley's, I'll bet Tom Jones is having memories of her too! How on earth did you pull that one out of the bag, I had visions of you being a young lady, now they are shattered! :P

I passed my panick age attacks quite a few years ago, oh god it's painful, you young guys out there have it to come too! There's no where to run or hide! Just don't look in the mirror. :P :lol:

Visions of you in shades of blue
Smoking, shifting, lazily drifting
I see the whole night through

Stars go by, no wonder my senses go reeling
My whole life seeming
To start and end with you

When will we meet again
When, when, when...

ksl, my taste in music (amongst other things) is very old world. As for whether I'm a young lady... well that is relative. :wink:

I must admit, your not only quick off the mark, you have good taste, with a sense of humour! Like myself:

It's so nice to have dreams! Sorry! Drifting off the topic here, and its not even saturday yet!
