What Does Love Mean To You?

Did you see my Choco-Coconut Rum Banoffee pie in this year’s Great Bloggers’ Bake Off? We are waiting now to find out the results of the Bake Off.

But after all of the baking posts had been published last night, there was something amazing to round off the weekend – an enormous patchwork of collaborations from over a hundred people who were asked the question in the title of this post.

THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ PATCHWORK OF LOVE

In My Brain, See Your Face Again

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

Finding The Right One

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?
