I Do Not Fear the Time

My mother and father are married 47 years today.

In their honor, and in honor of the occasion, I have two mournful yet appropriate songs for them. This is, of course, a day to celebrate and be extremely joyful--partly because we know that it won't last forever. And so the celebration and joy includes mourning over the sweet receding past and the inevitable parting yet to come.

Here's a beautiful song written by Sandy Denny.

And here's a lovely one by Richard and Linda Thompson.


  1. Is Obama going to live with you when he leaves the white house next year? XD

  2. Your obsession with Obama is amusing.

  3. I'm allowed to do a blog that disagrees with the president. XD it's the USA. XD


Feel free to comment if you have something substantial and substantiated to say.
