I am not being self indulgent using a photo of me to represent this reason to be glad. My eyes reflect a mirror image of the eyes I would really like to have photographed for this thought. I have a beautiful memory which is only captured in my heart, maybe you can see it in my eyes ;-)

    A great many of your photos immediately bring to mind ’song titles’ .
    Yesterdays, with raindrops falling down the window, was an instant reminder of a Simon & Garfunkel song, and do you know, I can’t remember which. :(
    Give me time – it will come – I have the LP – I should know it. :)
    Now, today. “Take a pair of sparkling eyes”. Again my olde braine cells are “not what they used to be”! I think this is a Gilbert & Sullivan number, but from which operetta I cannot recall.
    Give me time – it will come – I have the LP – I should know it. :)
    I’m getting old and forgetful. :(

      Yesterday’s title reminded my of the Sound of Music. I have now got the music “take a pair of sparkling eyes” floating around in my head :-) I can’t remember where it comes from, but I think it is Gilbert & Sullivan :-)

      Let me know if you remember them.

          Kathys Song (by S&G) especially this bit..
          “And as I watch the drops of rain
          weave their weary paths and die”.

          I hear the drizzle of the rain,
          like a memory it falls,
          soft and warm, continuing,
          tapping on my roof and walls.

          And from the shelter of my mind,
          through the window of my eyes
          I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets,
          to England where my heart lies.
          And as I watch the drops of rain
          weave their weary paths and die
          I know that I am like the rain.
          There but for the grace of you go I.

    Kind, compassionate and sparkling eyes – any memory that produces a smile like that has got to be a wonderful one to keep forever.
