but in some respects, the old ways are still the best
who doesn’t remember watching movies of the old west when thieving toerags pulled a bandana up over the lower part of their face and a stetson down over the eyes to mask their appearance?
it may be old hat now but it did a better job of hiding one’s identity than does the modern practice of sticking a clear plastic bag on your head . . . http://tinyurl.com/pn2ygrc

people mature at different rates
and when all your class mates have started menstruating and you haven’t, I imagine it causes some degree of mental angst – after all, no-one likes to be the odd one out in a group

there are many things that separate us from one-another but one thing we have in common is our humanity
sadly, all too often this is overlooked as we make snap judgements about people based on their appearance
there are far too many people living on the street but most of us pretend they aren’t there. We walk past, avoiding eye-contact, deaf to their entreaties – reluctant to engage with them
this video seeks to remind us that the ‘homeless’ are people like you and I, who have had the misfortune to fall on hard times

way back in the 80s, I was a great fan of Suzanne Vega – so much so that a Canadian friend bought a couple of tickets for us to go see Suzanne Vega in concert – even though she herself had not yet heard of her

Suzanne and her band were as good live as they were in a recording studio and they gave a stunning performance of this song about the Queen and the Soldier
much as I love the original, though – I love this cover version better

And be sure to post your own favourite song(s) in the comment section to this post
