Have fun, Dearest friend
October 23, 2012 7 Comments
One of the joys of blogging is the people you meet, and sometimes you can recognize them, just because they’re special. This is one of those times. Call it an open letter.
I think many of you know my dearest friend, Jessica Hoff of All Along the Watchtower, whose husband, known in this part of the blogosphere, as the Captain has recently returned from Afghanistan. As part of the getting reacquainted process Jessica had scheduled a romantic weekend this weekend for them. . Not to be outdone, The Gallant Captain, after Jess got bowled over by some idiot student and suffered a broken wrist, with some new horror stories of the NHS to go with it, managed to add a few days to the getaway so they are leaving this morning.
That unfortunately for the rest of us means that we shall have to carry on with out our wonderful chatelaine, which shan’t be easy.
But I suppose we shall have to:
Keep Calm and Carry On
Which we shall do, while awaiting their safe return to the fold with bated breath.
And in Life’s noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart’s Self-solace and soliloquy.
You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro’ all my Being, thro’ my pulse’s beat;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.
And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love you.
The Presence of Love
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Have fun, my dear friends.
