Troubled Waters Thursday


Tommy: #1 was strangely subdued yesterday, and she spent a lot of time "talking" with friends across the ocean. She tells me there is so much sadness, and so much fear, even despair. We wish we could enclose all of you in a big hug of friendship. #1 was reminded of the words of a song most of you will know:

When you're weary, feeling small
When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all
I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough
And friends just can't be found
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes
And pain is all around
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down

There will be light again, and kindness and generosity, and the love of all.

  11. Elles sont très bien les paroles de cette chanson Tommy.
    Mon humaine elle est perturbée par cette histoire. Quelque soit le bout par lequel elle prenne le programme de cet humain ça ne lui plait pas du tout. Et pas que son programme d'ailleurs.
    Elle se dit que heureusement que ma Tata Valérie et son mari, qui est CEO de l'entreprise qu'il a fondée à San Francisco, ont une Green Card. Sinon ils auraient du soucis à se faire.
    Il faut garder espoir.

  12. Thank you Chans. <3

    By the way Tommy, my mm always used to have a dog. The last one was named Jack and he was a red hunting dog. His hair was the same color as mom's. She had always had dogs until she married.

  16. Simon and Garfunkel had a way with words...it looks as though we are all in need of bridges these days with all the turbulence in the world. We will have to be each other's bridges of love and solidarity in order for a growing, collective unease to hopefully be eased. Our hearts are heavy here in Canada too.

  19. Mum says that is a good song to comfort. Me things we are scared of the unknown future and what it might bring. We hope that what comes will be good for all, not just good for some.
