The Civil Wars Lyrics

"Dust To Dust"

It's not your eyes
It's not what you say
It's not your laughter
That gives you away
You're just lonely
You've been lonely too long

All your acting, your thin disguise
All your perfectly delivered lines
They don't fool me
You've been lonely too long

Let me in the walls
You've built around
We can light a match
And burn them down
Let me hold your hand
And dance 'round and 'round the flames
In front of us
Dust to dust

You've held your head up
You've fought the fight
You bear the scars
You've done your time
Listen to me
You've been lonely too long

Let me in the walls
You've built around
We can light a match
And burn them down
Let me hold your hand
And dance 'round and 'round the flames
In front of us
Dust to dust

You're like a mirror, reflecting me
Takes one to know one, so take it from me
You've been lonely
You've been lonely too long
We've been lonely
We've been lonely too long

My dear dn family, I just recently viewed on Netflix this wonderful Turkish Series (Drama - Romance) titled
Winter Sun - Kis Gunesi ...... & it won my heart !!

I found this enchanting clip on you-tube with this
enticing music to accompany it & thought it
would be fun to share with you, dear friends.

You rather know me by now & know that I am a
romantic at heart and love when love touches
our life despite the obstacles......

God bless Love You All To The Moon & Back.

Music "Pergolesi: Stabat Mater - 12. Quando corpus - Amen" by June Anderson

Taken from the Turkish series Winter Sun now on NetFlix,
II loved this story so much it helped me to be thankful
at this moment in time for all those who have gone before
me and know that my life has been enriched by there
presence and it is only really until we meet again.

Love to all you my dear dn family of friends and to those
you have loved and have had to say goodbye.....

Borak, "Is that Mete? You look so happy."
Sede, "Yes, we were the happiest couple on earth."

Borak, "Where was this ? Seda , "Sile, we would often go there, when he was alive that is."

Borak to Seda,
"I know it hurts but you should count yourself lucky for having
loved someone so much."
We're all going to die someday. It's much better to love someone and lose them, than never finding someone to love.

We all have someone we can't forget, we all do.
I know it feels unbearable sometimes but what if we had
never had them at all ? Imagine what life would be like.
It would be so hard.

The love we feel for them gives our lives meaning, no
matter how much it hurts.I know it all feels too brief but
the love we feel lives on.

What we shared and felt in that short time gives life its
meaning. We'll see them in heaven. In the meantime we should be grateful."

Beauty is not all there is of poetry. It must contain the truth. It is not simply an oak, rude and grand, neither is it simply a vine. It is both. Around the oak of truth runs the vine of beauty. Robert Green Ingersoll

Hi Everyone,

It's been a busy, but happy Summer for me-- which is the reason that I may not have been around to visit you for awhile. Well... mostly happy. Car problems that were not cheap kept me from seeing my 5 month old granddaughter for a couple of weeks, but at least the car is finally working again. :)

My job has been keeping me busy also. We are engraving a lot of Stainless Steel mugs right now. We have one type where each shrink wrapped mug must be unwrapped by hand before it is engraved. It's time consuming, and my hands are getting a little sore... but hey... it's a living! I can listen to any kind of music that I want to while I unwrap them too.:D

I try to upload at least 5 wallpapers a month. I uploaded one wall on July 4th. I tried to get more up here during the month, but things kept coming up. Finally, today, July 31st, I rushed these 5 wallpapers up here. I got them uploaded with less than 3 hours to spare; August 1st starts on Desktop Nexus at 8pm my time. (Michigan, USA) It feels great to have beaten the clock! :D I hope to get many more walls uploaded during the month of August, because I have a backlog now...stay tuned! lol

As you can see, I've got 3 Cows Group walls up in this bunch; and 2 of them are especially silly...:P :D If you aren't a member of the Cows Group yet, you should check it out. There is such an incredible variety of cow wallpapers in it scenic, unusual, cute, humorous, etc... I think this group has become one of the most interesting (and fun!) ones on Desktop Nexus! :D

I hope that you are having a great Summer also, or a great Winter, depending on where you live!

Elaine :)

PS. PUPPYDAWG/ROGER news is that there isn't that much right now. He is doing better, but has an annoying, chronic cough. I do think he could use your prayers. He wants to come back to Desktop Nexus, but he needs a new computer to do so. He has enough money, but he isn't very mobile. Hopefully, one of his relatives will be able to help him out with that soon. Believe me, he misses everybody!

Sergei Polunin / Сергей Полунин "Breathless" An En Pointe ballet iMovie. He's Ukraine, she's Russia

Breathless... as he dances. Breathless... as we watch.
He leaves us breathless with his raw emotion and flawless technique. Breathless that we are so blessed to witness him in his prime. Future generations will envy us.

Hello & Hugs DN Family of Friends of Mine, Greeting from
The Sunshine State of California.......

I have a story to share , I just spoke with my sister-in-law
Elisa on Wednesday. She shared that she recently had
been to our Hollywood Bowl for the summer season.
The renowned Gustavo Dudamel conducted Giselle,
such a beautiful ballet. Two most talented dancers
of the new generation graced the stage & stole
the night with multiple standing Ovations.

Sergie Polunin of Ukrain & Natalia of Russia. Elisa raved, I immediately researched also falling in love with these two beautiful artists. So happy to share the treasure given to
me by Elisa with you....

God bless wishing you & your loved ones a most
lovely & beautiful Sunday....Thank you for your
friendship , it brings meaning me & kitties.
Always Carmen, Picasso & Pasha..........

What is the story behind Giselle?
The ballet is about a peasant girl named Giselle, who dies of a broken heart after discovering her lover is betrothed to another. The Wilis, a group of supernatural women who dance men to death, summon Giselle from her grave. They target her lover for death, but Giselle's great love frees him from their grasp.

Our DN Family of Friends, Happy Weekend.
Love You All To THe Moon & Back.
Carmen, Picasso & Pasha ...

To Hester, all the world seemed full of melody. Even the clouds in the sky sailed slowly along in time to a stately march in her brain, or danced to the tune of a merry schottische that sounded for her ears alone. And when she saw the sunset from the hill behind her home, there was always music then — low and tender if the colors were soft and pale-tinted, grand and awful if the wind blew shreds and tatters of storm-clouds across a purpling sky. ~Eleanor H. Porter, "A Delayed Heritage," 1904

Nuria Rial "De Santany� vaig partir" (L'Arpeggiata)

De Santany� vaig partir' from the album 'Mediterraneo' by Christina Pluhar / L'Arpeggiata

L'Arpeggiata records Cavalli: l'Amore innamorato (Armonia)

In L’Amore innamorato Christina Pluhar's ensemble L'Arpeggiata and sweet-voiced sopranos Nuria Rial and Hana Blaž�kov� offer us a gem, a rarity that cleverly borrows the title of a mysterious opera by Cavalli, thought to have been lost or perhaps never premiered.

Hana Blaž�kov� (born 2 December 1980) is a Czech soprano and harpist. She is focused on Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque music, appearing internationally. She has recorded as a member of the Bach Collegium Japan, among many others.

the harpist here is Sarah Louise Ridy, a baroque harpist who plays with many groups but not Omnia. The harpist from Omnia is Jenny Evans van der Harten.
