An Unexpected Journey


Sometimes life takes unexpected turns and changes when you least anticipate it.

I won't be blogging again for a while, but I didn't want to just stop suddenly without thanking everyone for all the comments and feedback I've received.  I feel as though I've made some really good friends through this blog and I wanted to let you all know how much you mean to me.

I don't know when I'll be back again, but I thought I'd leave you with this song.  I saw the movie of The Hobbit recently and during the past few days it has struck me how strangely these lyrics and tune mirror the place where I am right now.



“Keep your face to the sun and you will never see the shadows.” 
― Helen Keller





Lyrics to "Song of the Lonely Mountain" by Neil Finn:-

Far over the Misty Mountains rise
Leave us standing upon the heights
What was before, we see once more
Our kingdom a distant light

Fiery mountain beneath the moon
The words unspoken, we'll be there soon
For home a song that echoes on
And all who find us will know the tune

Some folk we never forget
Some kind we never forgive
Haven't seen the back of us yet
We'll fight as long as we live
All eyes on the hidden door
To the Lonely Mountain borne
We'll ride in the gathering storm
Until we get our long-forgotten gold

We lay under the Misty Mountains cold
In slumbers deep and dreams of gold
We must awake, our lives to make
And in the darkness a torch we hold

From long ago when lanterns burned
Till this day our hearts have yearned
Her fate unknown the Arkenstone
What was stolen must be returned

We must awake and make the day
To find a song for heart and soul

Some folk we never forget
Some kind we never forgive
Haven't seen the end of it yet
We'll fight as long as we live
All eyes on the hidden door
To the Lonely Mountain borne
We'll ride in the gathering storm
Until we get our long-forgotten gold
Far away from Misty Mountains cold.
