One and One

The sky isn’t always blue
The sun doesn’t always shine
It’s alright to fall apart sometimes,
I am not always you
And you are not always mine
It’s alright to fall apart sometimes

After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half

The heart isn’t always true
And I am not always fine
We all have an angry heart sometimes

After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half

Look how far we have come
One and one still is

One moon (one moon)
One star (one star)
I love the one we are
One thread (one thread)
One line (one line)
Let’s stand still in time

One moon (one moon)
One star (one star)
I love the one we are
One thread (one thread)
One line (one line)
That runs through our lives

After all is said and done
One and one still is one
When we cry, when we laugh
I am half, you are half

Look how far we have come
One and one still is one

Wuthering

Wuthering Heights is the name of a place high up on the Yorkshire moors. It is also the name of a book. The moors inspired Charlotte Bronte to write the haunting story of love trancending death for Heathcliffe and Cathy in the 1800’s.

A classical book, it is still much read today, and has been made into a variety of films. The latest one, in 1992 was a little off centre, there being no castle set on those particular moors in Yorkshire 🙂

Haworth was the last home of the three Bronte Sisters, daughters of Patrick Bronte the village vicar,  all were authors who wrote under male pseudonym’s as it was a scandal for women to have such thoughts in those days. It is now a huge tourist centre. On any day hundreds of visitors scoure the streets, looking for reflections and ghosts of those who once abided there.

I was lucky enough to spend some time on location with the crew filming one version of Wuthering Heights, and was amazed at the transformations that could be wrought with pieces of polystyrene, plastic and fake wood! I was also amazed at just how much food was always available, day and night. 🙂

Kate Bush also wrote her song of the same name about the book. A spooky melody, though the scenery in the clip is gain not true to life – more camera trickery and props manipulaton it seems.

Dr. Hook

Music should be known as one of the seven wonders of the world (or maybe the eighth?). It can affect your mood, tell a story, give a message, bring back memories both good and bad and take you back to certain parts of your life. I do not have any specific music taste, liking a wide variety of artists. There are only two songs that I never want to hear again, so they will not be featured here.

Like scents, music has power that we do not credit. So, having been in something of a reflective mood today, I searched for music to sooth and found, hidden in the back of the cupboard, a disc I have not listened to for a long time.

Here are two of my favourite songs from ‘completely hooked’. By Dr. Hook, who also has a few songs on there that just make me laugh. (try Money and Millionaire :). One for a memory, and one for someone who has touched my life in a very special way.

and

Enjoy!!

‘O Caritas’

hunc ornatum mundi
nolo perdere
video flagrare
omnia res
audio clamare
honines
nune extinquitur
mundi et astrorum lamen
nune concipitur mali hominis crimen
tristetat e et lacrimis
gravis est dolor
de terraeque maribus
magnus est clamor
O caritas, O caritas
nobis semper sit amor
mos perituri mortem salutamus
sola resurgit vita
Ah, this world is burning fast
Oh, the world will never last
I don´t want to lose it here in my time

(Yes, I DO know, and can pronounce, all of the words) 🙂
