The Meltdown

Tiny orbs perfectly frosted

To the last remnants of shadow they cling

Winter is fading away

Their icy empire is vanquished by spring

I’m Going Out Tonight

out tonightWell…more like this afternoon really. I am going to an event that will last for a long time. But you, know I am used to events that drag on a little because of the sheer amount of people present.

I have been worried about my outfit. I had an outfit picked out…but then the forecast is saying the weather is going to be gorgeous and so I have had to change my choice at the last minute and I am not so confidant in this other dress I have decided to wear.

The secret is remembering that everyone else is worried about their own outfit and they are probably not worried about yours! Harsh but true. So it is not worth being overly anxious.

There is a banquet early in the evening and then…later there will be a sort of party, with some live performers. But there will be a dance, which I am looking forward to.

But here is the thing…I have decided I am going to leave after the banquet and before the party really warms up to go to another event. A completely different event. Then I am going back for a dance.

Over the past few weeks, I have received three invitations for an event to do with commemorating the an event which is sacred to billions. I received two while I was out and about in London. One near London Bridge and the other I received when I was up in Camden. I was interested, but I knew I had this big bash to go to, so I thought it was not possible to go.

Then on Wednesday I was at work and I opened the door when someone buzzed the intercom and a beautiful young woman walked in and gave me the same invitation I have already received.

Three invitations – that clinched it. I am sure I can get away for a couple of hours in between the food and the dancing. I had to search on line and I have found that I can go to a hotel where they are holding the service to commemorate this profound night.

I know there will be a lot of people who will be dwelling on the foundation of all their faith and their hope for the future this weekend especially. So I hope you enjoy the weekend.

Revealing My Eighties Music Background

Kristian, the creator of Tales from the mind of Kristian, has nominated me to take part in the Weekly Song Challenge, as you can see from his post below:

I am quite pleased to see I can go all eighties with this week’s challenge. I was born in the eighties, so my choices give you a little idea of the music I grew up hearing.
