  3. That is not the sort of song that I normally like, but it is great. For some reason it makes me feel about 8 years old. Is it an old song or does it just feel like an old song?

  6. Saz... I can never listen to this without just stopping to cry. But it's the line after 'And I need you MORE than want you...' that gets me. The line that follows that, the gut-wrenching admission and I want you for all time...."

    Oh here I go, blubbering again...

    Actually, James Taylor is just what I need this morning, so, thank you. x

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...
