Sail on...



I've been singing this song a lot this week...





Sail on my brother
Sail on through the night
Sail on my sister
Sail on through the night

Beautiful as the day is long
Beautiful as the day is long

Sail on your troubles
Sail on through your doubts
Sail on your worries
Sail on soon you'll work it out

Beautiful as the day is long
Beautiful as the day is long

I've always been a believer
In the good things of life
But they don't all come wrapped in cellophane
And they don't always seem to turn out right
They don't always seen to turn out right

I've always been a believer
In the good things of life
But they don't all come wrapped in cellophane
And they don't always seem to turn out right
No, no, no,
They don't always seem to turn out right
But sometimes they do
Humm.... sail on.



We have to choose Hope, do we not? Hope against hope even...



I cling to such words as these, at times, "I've always been a believer
In the good things of life, but they don't all come wrapped in cellophane, and they don't always seem to turn out right..." (Fraser, Rodgers, Kossoff, Kirke).

As part of last year's live concert and gig challenge, we've got quite a few gigs lined up in April. It's not long away... Paul Rodgers with Bad Company, my favourite Mr John Smith (recently featured in The Times Online itself this month), and the first musician to befriend me on Myspace, Terry Emm... Meanwhile, I'm ponderosa-ing on Diane's 45/45 Challenge to herself... I'm astounded and inspired...

Diane believes that setting goals in a very measured and ambitious way, putting stuff out there into the Universe as it were, can help her to achieve so much more in life...

I do this at work, setting tasks and objectives, but I haven't followed my own example in life - I just drift - Even tho' I used to chant a mantra out loud for promotions. ...It got me two rungs up the ladder!

A lovely commenter last week gave me her mantra, "Weight Watchers is my friend..." That was a very useful tip. I'm taking that one on board.

I'm not finished yet... I'm getting started on my list of 47, just like darling Diane - Any requests??!

I'm a huge Paul Rodgers/Free/Bad Company/Firm etc fan and Sail On is one of my favourite Free tracks. I love all tracks Free but some are exceptional - All Right Now, of course, is a classic, but Mr Big, Ride on a Pony, Be My Friend etc etc etc etc are all great. Swoon, the inner-Free fan has been freed once again by your post!

You blog always has such a wonderful style to it. I think if I were the Secret Blogger Challenge show and had to read a blog blindfolded and identify the blogger, yours is one I would get right away.

I've always loved that song. Good choice, for whatever may be ailing someone at any particular moment.

Astounding as always.

I've always liked that song...and I commend you on setting your goals and putting them out there for every to see -- I guess that would definitely help with accountability, which is why I'll refrain from doing that ;-)

and yeah, I'm back after the shortest blogging break in recorded history :D
