Paint your pallette blue and grey..


Well it's Sunday eve,and I'm nearing the end of a most pleasant four-day holiday.
The cheesecake dispute has been amicably resolved,and our little family's bountiful turkey feast has been nibbled and pecked down to the equally bountiful ingredients for making a hearty turkey soup,with just enough left over for yet some few more tender sandwiches,(a little salt,pepper,and mayo on potato bread..YES!).Life continues to be good in Sling's domain. :)

And so,as I am wont to do when the rain,and my own psychic needs require,I'll don the headphones and take a warm snifter of brandy in hand.Top o' the reflective charts tonight is Don McLean's tribute to Van Gogh,.. "Vincent".
I keep an especially moving version on the jukebox for just such a circumstance.It was recorded live,and augmented with soaring violins and cello that blend exquisitely with Mr. McLean's flawless poetry.

"..with eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
Like the strangers that you've met.
The ragged men,in ragged clothes.
A silver thorn,a bloody rose,
lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow"..

I swear,If I could write like that, I'd never have to leave the house...
Yeah,I know the lyrics might seem a little melancholy,but sometimes,..it's like that..You are welcome to enjoy it with me here,..if you're so inclined..Peace out.

Vincent's an absolute classic, Sling. Love it. Reminds me of being young again - and I'd swap non-work for twenty years ago... oh yes I would.

I am with you Sling and Charlie... I have loved that song for ages. Only the other morning when I had the radio on ..at 6 ...I burn the candle at both ends... it was on and Don needed a drink of water tabs and other essentials. I kept stopping and just listening...ahhh...Thanks Sling I went to "here" and downloaded it...many thanks

I studied Vincent Van Gogh for my higher art exam. His mix of form and content is powerful and dramatic. He was full of imagination and emotion- full of the spiritual essence of human nature- wonderful. Great song Sling.
He had a nervous temperament and enjoyed night-long discussions, most likely combined with a little ale.
Hard to believe that in his lifetime he only sold one paintng… pass the wine please.
