The Mood of Winter

Time for a cowboy song

There is no news to report.


I have no thoughts of relevance.


My opinions are well known.

Therefore, there is nothing for me to write.


So, I simply will post two versions of a cowboy song I like, "Four Strong Winds."


The first version is performed by Neil Young and "friends." The only two "friends" I recognize are Young's wife, Pegi, on his right, and singer Emmylou Harris, on his left.

The second version is by the writer of the song, Ian Tyson, and his once-upon-a-time wife, Sylvia. (I sort of like both their first names for some reason.) Late in the rendition, they are joined by some fellow I do not recognize, by Judy Collins, Gordon Lightfoot and, once again, Emmylou Harris. She gets around, it seems.

Anyway, as you probably suspect, this song fits my Winter Mood.

Hi Fram:)i think your songs are very nice.

Me too is having a time where i do not product anything..it is like i feel to tired of being on the net giving someting all the time..i dont know.may be am lazy bone..but i think sometimes it is good to only watch others.there is so much talented,inspirating and wise people going around.


Anyway it is good to hear from you and i hope you are better and out of the flu you did got soemtime ago.

I have two thoughts regarding my blog, Anita. One is to drop it entirely and the other is to utilize it only when there is really some development in my life which is worth writing about. If I do keep it, I probably still would bounce in and out for completely nonsensical reasons at times, but not nearly so often as I have in the past.

You, on the other hand, have a reason to have a blog: Photography.

At this point, I have no reason to keep one, and I have a few other new projects going on which require my time. And, yes, it is often more fun to visit others than to work on one's own blog.

My head cold still lingers, but either it is lessening or I am getting used to functioning with it. Thanks, for your concern.

It has been a long day for me. I drove a one hundred fifty-mile round trip and spent a few hours at a boat show. Now, it is time to relax and to watch football on television.

Thank you, for the good wishes and thoughts, Anita. I appreciate your visits and comments. Yes, I will be around, even sooner than I had expected.

You forced a smile out of me with that line, Anita.

Something special ....
