Tune of the Week

Good day everyone!

Feeling rather fall'ish here in Ottawa with very cool mornings and a huge drop in the humidity level.  It's only late Aug there are already trees that have leaves changing colours.  Everything has been about 3 weeks ahead of schedule this year, I hope that fall isn't one of them.  Although fall is a wonderful time of the year for photography.  But fall will be delayed by at least the next week; check out this weather forecast for the coming days;

Makes me want to take another week off!  Evenings are cool, nice for sleeping, but those day temps are going to be a wonderful way to end the winter.

The cat is pretty much out of the bag to all those who read here.  Yes I am spending a lot of time with Jennifer and everyone has been very happy and supportive about it.  We are a good match and everyone seems to recognize that.   We have very similar backgrounds and coming from the same "environment" makes for a lot more understanding about our day to day lives.  For those who are in this business, they will understand what I'm talking about.   Jen and I will be "coming out" over the coming weeks and things will be much more open here on the blog and on facebook.   Where things have been very quiet on purpose.  We are taking everything slow and enjoying ourselves and we will see what all this leads to.  Both of us have had bad experiences and want to ensure that a proper foundation is laid.  If it's meant to be then we have lots of time ;-)     Things happen for a reason, sometimes it takes time to reveal it's reason but eventually it becomes apparent.  Some of the happenings of the past few months continue to strengthen my believe in that philosophy.

I have the kids this weekend for our annual pool party.  Should be fun.  Picking them up from their mothers this afternoon, we're going to have a lovely chicken dinner to celebrate Keaton's upcoming 17th birthday on 1 Sept!   Tomorrow off to Suzie's for the pool party (and check out that weather again) and then back to my place for Saturday night.  Home on Sunday.  Going to be a fun weekend and looking forward to spending some time with both Keaton and Toria at the same time.

That's about it on the news front.  Been back to work so that takes up most of my time and spend my free time with Jen where we can.  Have had this tune stuck in my head most of the week so thought I'd share it with you.  Ya I know it's an old 80's tune but damn it was a good one!  And be sure to check out the remake by Lacuna Coil.  Don't read anything into the lyrics this week, just like the song;

Enjoy the Silence - Depeche Mode (9/11 tribute version - check out where they filmed it)

And a wonderful remake by an Italian Metal Band (thanks to Jen for introducing them to me), similar to Within Temptation and they still haven't made many inroads into North America, but they are interesting!

Words like violence
Break the silence
Come crashing in
Into my little world
Painful to me
Pierce right through me
Can't you understand
Oh my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Vows are spoken
To be broken
Feelings are intense
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does the pain
Words are meaningless
And forgettable

All I ever wanted
All I ever needed
Is here in my arms
Words are very unnecessary
They can only do harm

Enjoy the silence
