I honestly thought it was going to be a love theme for today. So I had to pick a love song to fit with the theme which includes “brain”. The song is a sensation “To Love Somebody” and I have chosen a recording by Nina Simone.

There’ a light A certain kind of light It’s never shown on me I want my whole life to be Lived with you Lived with you
There’s a way Everybody say Do each and every little thing What good does it bring If I ain’t got you If I ain’t got you If I ain’t got you If I ain’t got you
You don’t know What it’s like Baby you don’t know What it’s like To love somebody To love somebody The way I love you
In my brain See your face again I know my frame of mind You ain’t got to be so blind And I’m blind so blind
But I’m a woman Can’t you see what I am I live and breathe for you What good does it do If I ain’t got you If I ain’t got you If I ain’t got you If I ain’t got you
Say you don’t know What it’s like Baby you don’t know what it’s like To love somebody To love somebody The way I love you
Oh’a, you don’t know What it’s like Baby you don’t know What it’s like To love somebody To love somebody The way I love you
So I am not going to waffle on about love and romance this weekend because – just nah – but Jenna asked if we have any bogging crushes. I thought about it and since I started blogging there are three great blogging ladies who have supported me.
So I read when I was a teenager that finding “the right one” is like trying out shoes. They might all look fine, but then you slide your feet in and walk around and ouch! You know after a while if they are going to cause you issues – if they are gonna pinch or cramp your style.
When I read that concept, I thought “you can’t say finding the right girl is like shopping for shoes”. It seemed a bit harsh to me. But I do take the point that you should take your time to find the right one, get to know them and be honest about what kind of person you want to spend your life with.
One of the Aunties said to me the other day that in hard times you get to see more about what someone is made of – man or woman. Her advice was not to be into some fair weather princess who freaks when she chips a nail. She said when times are hard you see if someone is resourceful and whether they have faith.
One of these days I’m gonna find me someone to call my girl – just gotta get me together before I do. I have a lot to work on before I find the right one. Otherwise they might not think I am the right one for them. Do you know what I’m saying?
