Do you like Singer/Songwriters, or do you have a unhealthy affection to the sadness, if so you may have a case of the Tuesday Blues!
A fortnight ago, after reading a news feed on Facebook, I became all nostalgic and a wave of memories came flooding back to me of when I lived in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I particularly remembered when I was 12, when my two friends, Flycasual, Paul and myself would spend our time dealing with our boredom by watching films, listening to music, going to the swimming pools or just Skateboarding to different spots around our gated, western compound. We used to feel so bored. I laugh now because we never realised at the time how good it was. In some ways, when we left Saudi Arabia it hit us hard, we'd always want to feel that way again.
The news feed had said that a friend was attending Paul's funeral. Two quote from Stand By Me immediately came to mind:-
I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve
Though I hadn't seen him in over twenty years, I knew I'd miss him forever
