My photo
In the depths of my being, a strange certainty, deeper than reason, entirely animal in quality, filled me with terror. The same certainty which some beasts-sheep and rats feel before an earthquake. Awakening in me was the soul of the first men on Earth, such as it was before it became totally detached from the universe, when it still felt the truth directly, without the distorting influence of reason- The 'Boss', Zorba the Greek

Yes, I am back home. Trying to be invisible is not easy as the Fantastic Four make it out to be. You get sniffed out here- they come and crawl into all the little spaces you thought were your own. If they had a choice or the chance they would come and become a part of you. "Where are you?", "What are you doing?", "Who are you with?", "Where did you go?", "Are you coming out tonight?" no no forget the question, "We are going out tonight.", "We are coming over." 
We are coming to crawl under your skin- we are you. You are me.

Song sung blue...

When I think of Neil Diamond-
Waking up Sunday mornings to the stereo full volume playing "Sweet Caroline".
Sitting on the stairs , on the phone- the ones where the cords are entwined around the banister, the curtains and anything else that comes in the way and Neil Diamond playing in the background.
His double cd pack- The Best of Neil Diamond.
Diwali one year and the song, "Girl, You'll be a woman soon" playing in the background.
Memorising the lyrics to his songs from the little booklets in the cd case.
Mum and Dad singing his songs loudly and happily.

And now I can remember him at Fenway Park, Boston. My first concert ever. Standing next to my cousin and realising every one else was over 50 but we didn't care! We loved him as much as they did. I'm not the only one ND has special meaning for. 

Good times never felt so good!SO GOOD! SO GOOD!
