For Tom... fly high my amazing friend, though no doubt you are already making the most of your next adventure... rocking with Bowie, dressing up with Prince and sharing a smoke with Marley.
You'll take the heavens by storm and love every minute of it! I'm light one with you, and for you

I am... I'm not really sure what I am right now. Numb is perhaps the best way to describe it, I suppose.
On Wednesday afternoon I lost a very good lifelong friend. His untimely death has left us all in shock, and is still sinking in. It's hard to think I will never talk to him again, hear his voice, spend hours discussing anything and everything, share his enthusiasm for the weird, the wonderful and everything in between, his zest for life.
The world really has lost a very bright light, a man of integrity, and above all, a true gentleman and a beautiful soul. My sincere condolences. I am so sorry for your loss.

I'm tired now, it's time to recline
Though I wish 't was with someone to hold
A loved one, who really was mine
Oh I hate that my bed has grown cold

Yes, I do. Fresh herbs to spice up our meals, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, red currants and olives (and geraniums too)

Do you like to cook?

But what can i do, my hearts been shot by cupid
And I've been consumed by my undying love since that day
It's a feeling that fills my heart and will not go away
Even though all my friends say I am wasting my time and it's stupid

But there isn't a day I don't think of how we two could play
All the acts of true love, all the things that would totally prove it
That you really are mine and there's nothing on earth that can stop it
That you're in my life now forever and ever to stay

Reality bites me when I have to open my eyes
And I look and I see that you'll never be more than a friend
Oh why can't I listen to friends who are giving advice

But inside of me everything pulls up a wall to prevent
That a piece of my heart stops believing in chances and dies
For my love for him will be a part of me until the end

Like the one Edgar Rice Burroughs wrote about? I loved his stories, but no, I don't believe in it.

Do you believe that extraterrestrial intelligent lifeforms have visited our planet?

Would you ever attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records?

Yes, and I hated it, because that choice also meant hurting one of them

This feeling so true and no one can steal
But unanswered and that makes it harder to deal
With his presence around you whenever you're here
It hurts to be close, though you still want him near
So you try to convey to him how much you feel
And you hope that he sees it and makes your dream real

Who lurks in a dungeon-like lair?
She looks like a dangerous creature
With horns and medusa-like hair
I'm studying every feature
But when I look into her eyes
It is not agression I see
So all of the fear in me dies
And slowly it's dawning to me
The outside may not look like mine
But the truth is found under the skin
And even the hide of a swine
Can be hiding true beauty within

Creating a love no longer true
So nobody out there will see
The illusion of me, together with you
Though as one we will no longer be
Our love has been total, in every way
Oh I wish it had made us complete
But there always was something that you seemed to miss
A longing that I could not meet
So the fire that caught us became less intense
And we lost the momentum we'd gained
Till the last spark just died like a flame in the wind
And only our friendship remained

Posted 21 Apr 2016 03:07

Yes and no. I'm still the same in the sense, that I'm still the friendly, openminded and curious guy I've always been, yet every experience teaches us and, inevitably, slightly changes us in our capability to deal with the things, life throws at us.

How do you expect to see yourself in ten years from now?

When your debts are called in one by one
At a time that you thought you had won
It just might have been nice
If you'd acted more wise
Because you now pay the price for the fun
