this song gets me spiritual.. an oldie from the 90’s + an old-time favourite.

this song makes me appreciate everything around me.. simply love it.

Feels just so fine
When we touch the sky me and you
This is my idea of heaven
Why can’t it always be so good?

But it’s all right, I know you’re out there
Doing what you’ve gotta do
You are my soul satellite
I’d be lost in space without you

And I’ll never lose my faith in you
How will I ever get to heaven, if I do

thoughts were racin’ through my head there and remembered a chapter in my life when i played for an all female punk band back home. that was a long, long, long time ago.

then all of a sudden.. a song came through my head. i can’t believe i still know all the lyrics by heart. the song was written by a very good friend of mine and she’ll be surprised to know i still know the full song.. i can still even play it with my guitar i think! :-)

cindy.. my dear cindy, hope u don’t mind me blogging about your composition.. i simply love it. (even after 19 years later!!)

‘magic spell’

i can see the stars
though it’s dark above…
butterflies dancin’ in my stomach

ur here.. ur here.. ur here
ya ur here

when we dance
my heart fills with joy
touched with happiness
when ur lips cover mine………….

somersaultin there goes my eyes
flip-floppin with every beat of my heart

ur here.. ur here.. ur here
ya ur here

when we dance
my heart fills with joy
touched with happiness
when ur lips cover mine………….

..geesh, can’t get this song out of my head!

Seems like everybody’s got a price
I wonder how they sleep at night
When the sale comes first and the truth comes second
Just stop for a minute and smile

Why is everybody so serious?
Acting so damn mysterious
You got your shades on your eyes and your heels so high
That you can’t even have a good time

Ain’t about the cha-ching, cha-ching
Ain’t about the ba-bling, ba-bling
Wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

been living for six weeks now in kerry + i still have yet to find out how it got baptised as ‘the kingdom’. kerry had always been my favourite destination in ireland. it just never occurred to me that i’d live here one day and for the record, i am already in love with this county!

the sunday just gone was a glorious and scorchin’ one so i decided to take a bike on boat tour to the gap of dunloe. i thought, i’ll cycle around the gap for a couple of hours and come back to killarney before dusk. Somehow.. somehow, i missed the turn to the gap of dunloe + ended up doing half of the ring of kerry. the road was so busy and it was pretty scary but for an absolute rookie in cycling, i think i did pretty well. captivated + allured by the beauty of my surroundings, i took endless stops for photographs and took about mmm.. about 400 pictures i think, a few i’ve posted below. hope u like them! am quite proud to show snaps of the county where i live now. in my head as i took the photographs i pondered, kerry should be a new synonym for beautiful.. the landscapes are just mind-blowing!

let’s go all ‘country’ style with bill hickey with this vibrant country music, kingdom of kerry!

fool on the hill

love this song..

day after day,
alone on a hill,
the man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
but nobody wants to know him,
they can see that he’s just a fool,
and he never gives an answer,

but the fool on the hill,
sees the sun going down,
and the eyes in his head,
see the world spinning ’round.

well on the way,
head in a cloud,
the man of a thousand voices talking perfectly loud
but nobody ever hears him,
or the sound he appears to make,
and he never seems to notice,

but the fool on the hill,
sees the sun going down,
and the eyes in his head,
see the world spinning ’round.

and nobody seems to like him,
they can tell what he wants to do,
and he never shows his feelings,

but the fool on the hill,
sees the sun going down,
and the eyes in his head,
see the world spinning ’round.

ooh, ooh,
round and round and round.

and he never listens to them,
he knows that they’re the fools
they don’t like him,

the fool on the hill
sees the sun going down,
and the eyes in his head,
see the world spinning ’round.

right after i posted the last blog, i received an SMS and a post in FB that ‘an end of an era is a beginning of a new one’. indeed it is.

am starting to really, really like it here… Killarney had always been one of my favourite destinations in Ireland. the town is surrounded with such a heavenly scenery and the locals are just so warm.

will share these pictures i took last weekend in Killarney National Park .. the first of the many walks i intend to take there!
