Head Over Hills and Far Away Love

Hey Neddy, you got the love I need
maybe more than enough
Oh darling, darling, darling
Walk a while with me
You got so much, so much…

Over the Hills and Far Away, Led Zep (and me)

That is what I ran to this morning. Thinking about Ned. So special. Golden, commanding, quiet, brilliant. Loyal, true, like a fairy tale prince. I was thinking, how is it that love lasts? Given all the mistakes and human ugliness? I hear so much about how it fades. You merely coexist. For the sake of continuity, for the sake of the kids. For something else. But I feel so, so, so grateful that for us it is not like that. Sometimes I cannot believe the blessings in my life.
(Knock wood).

It is my turn to help him. I want his birthday to be great, fun, exciting, peaceful, whatever he truly wants. I want his Father’s Day to be fantastic, because he is such an amazing father. But those events always coincide, and are also the same days as Nat’s State Games. How do I make each celebration really count for him? How can I make him as filled up with me as I am with him?


Not sure if you’re fans or just a lyric parodist 😉

June fifth. By your town.

Oh, I am a fan alright. And just this weekend I found that I was utterly sick of the Arabic stuff in my iPod and I craved my rock. So I’ve been driving around with “Houses of the Holy” on.

But just as I am about Bruce, Eric, Simon and Art, and Paul, I don’t like the new stuff that Led Zep has come out with. I like the music of young, tormented men better than older, peaceful men. (However, I prefer older, peaceful men as a species.)
