Great News from Colleen đź’ś

Colleen M. Chesebro

You know the old saying that when the universe speaks you listen? That is exactly what happened to us during this turmultous move. When the house deal in Albuquerque fell through, we headed to Seal Beach, CA to my husband’s brother’s house to decide what to do next.

Interstate 40 is a long stretch of road that cuts deep into the New Mexico/Arizona desert. Along the way, I had a spiritual encounter. I felt the universe hold me close as if time was suspended and unmoving. Suddenly, I knew that we were meant to live as close to my brother and sister in law as possible. The message was loud and clear… move to the Phoenix area!

So, our journey from Colorado morphed and changed once again. We arrived in Seal Beach and shared our news. My hubsband’s brother and sister in law are getting on in years and we…

Song Lyric Sunday. Cool/Groovy/Hip/Nifty/Radical/Swell .

This week’s prompt for Jim Adams of NewEpicAuthor is Cool/Groovy/Hip/Nifty/Radical/Swell . A wide canvas for us to choose from. I going to use more than one song this week.

Well I have used this song from George Harrison singing Back long ago when we was Fab.

Fab was a word we used a lot back in the day to describe all things connected with the prompt words. It’s a brilliant video too with Ringo Starr adding to it charm.

When We Was Fab”

Back then long time ago when grass was green
Woke up in a daze
Arrived like strangers in the night
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – back when income tax was all we had

Caresses fleeced you in the morning light
Casualties at dawn
And we did it all
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – you are my world you are my only love

And while you’re in this world
The fuzz gonna come and claim you
But you mo better wise
When the buzz gonna come and take you away
Take you away
Take you away

The microscopes that magnified the tears
Studied warts and all
Still the life flows on and on
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – but It’s All Over Now Baby Blue
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – like this pullover you sent to me

Fab
And You Really Got A Hold On Me
fab – long time ago when we was fab.

Now in the same vain another song not one hundred percent on prompt but certainly extolls all of it ingredients is Shiny Happy People from REM .

Shiny Happy People”

Shiny happy people laughing

Meet me in the crowd, people, people
Throw your love around, love me, love me
Take it into town, happy, happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands, take it, take it
There’s no time to cry, happy, happy
Put it in your heart where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Whoa, here we go

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
People, happy people
People
