    You can be a mister, you can be a beggar, you can be a lady, you can be a maid, I don't care, it's our human nature that we have in common. So you can't escape melancholy and sadness, those things are always near you when you've been touched by love and then you've been denied that precious love we all live for. Those hurtful feelings are there to show us how fragile our life is, and how much we need love once it's gone.

It was a beautiful sight and I took plenty of photographs. However, this is my favourite, as it sums up for me the relaxed and companionable spirit of that day. The natural beauty of the flowers in the sunshine was breath-taking, but sharing the experience made it really special.

    There are plenty of wonderful foods like; pizza, fries, tequila, wine, falafels, beer, bagels, bacon, pickles, sauerkraut, catfish, pineapples, mangoes, wild rice, beans, granola, cheetos, caramel candy, popcorn, ice cream, banana, fudge, corn dogs, mayonnaise, steak sauce, ketchup, mustard, garlic, eggrolls, sushi, rice cakes, oatmeal, cucumbers, biscuits, beef jerky, Pop Tarts, tamales, shish-ka-bob... and of course chocolate. I wouldn't advise trying them all at once but the food I photographed is topical. Lovely. ;-)

It's one of the songs played every year before the start of the Great Scottish Run Half Marathon in Glasgow. It does have a strong beat, so it's probably good as motivational music, but every year I look at the runners and think there's another song by the same artists that would be much more appropriate. I stand near the finishing line, watching the runners approach, and so many of them seem to be struggling or suffering. But when they cross that finishing line, they're all so delighted with their achievements, it's a real transformation. And that's what always makes me think of this song.
