Pink... Pink Seems Good

 

 

 

Well the sun is surely sinking down, but the moon is slowly rising.
So this old world must still be spinning round and I still love you.

So close your eyes, you can close your eyes, it's all right.
I don't know no love songs and I can't sing the blues anymore.
But I can sing this song and you can sing this song when I'm gone.

It won't be long before another day, we gonna have a good time.
And no one's gonna take that time away. You can stay as long as you like.

I agree, Pink it is today ...and tomorrow.....and the day after tomorrow.
Beautiful.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile YAY!
Thank you Astrid!
Pink seems BETTER than good, Elizabeth, especially if you're getting over the Blues.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes! I'm feeling a little better each day. Not so weepy as yesterday... So now I can focus on the next - 10 weeks, 16 hours from now - back in his arms! smile

They used to paint the walls of the night shelter in pink, as it was a relaxing colour
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I can see where a pale pink would be very calming... that and a pale blue or lavender. Nice, Lisl!

I love the subtle shade variations and the textures in this. We have an expression "being in the pink"; I think it means life is good; let's hope that's case for you now. I'll have to leave James Taylor until I get home; internet in the sticks is slow.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Alan! It was a lovely little thing! We have a similar expression, I think we just say "in the pink" My Mom says it's because when you're healthy you have pink cheeks. smile I'm feeling a little better each day, Alan - thank you so much.
I know how slow internet can be... James will wait for you! smile

Pink will be good.

This whole posting reminds me of the days that I was in love, but we were kept apart by the wars of mankind. And later by international requirements of the day, now long forgotten. I would sit of an evening watching the moon, high in the sky, wondering - is she looking at the same moon too? Without being sad, a lone tear will trickle down my cheek. Man, was I fickle.

An issue I remember was the price of a phone call. In 1977 a call to the Netherlands was charged at ZAR 30.00 per minute, at a time that my take home was ZAR 400.00 per month. Today it is ZAR 0.30/minute and income is way, way higher than back then. And I don't phone her ...
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think so!

Oh Louis, I know what you're talking about! But with our 7 hour difference, when I look at the moon in the evening Frank will likely be fast asleep with the morning hours upon him. It feels very strange quite often.

What a crazy expensive phone call! Oh my goodness... Yes - phone calls are not only cheaper, but all you have to do is walk into the other room to talk to her! What a Blessing! And lucky for Frank and I - Skype and FaceTime are free!

Thank you for your kinship and support, Louis! I spoke with an immigration lawyer today and she's sent a voluminous packet via email for Frank and I to go through. It will be expensive (though any amount is worth it), but mostly we just have to be patient, as it can take a year or two to get everything approved. Steady on... smile
Pink is good Elizabeth! Delightful backlight shot.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Richard - I was pleased with how delicate the color was!
A wonderful shot, Elizabeth...Dreamy. A great piece of James too X
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Frank! Dreamy - like me! smile
All for you My Love!
very delicate flower
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - delicate is a good word for this! Thank you Chantal!
A nice bit of back-lighting!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Tom!
Love your photograph of the pink rose. I still love James Taylor.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Mary!
I do too - I thought of this song because on the airplane Monday, I was listening to Carly Simon's "Into White" album and she did a beautiful rendition of this song. I felt it was quite apt.

Lots of gradations in pink, lovely!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Anne! I loved the depth that came out on this!
An elegant flower....the picture not Frank wink
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is, Bill - thank you!
Oh Frank is elegant in his own way... smile
The lighting through the flower is beautiful, it is so unusual to see a picture of a flower taken from behind.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Brian! I do like this one a lot.
