Lately I have been posting very short, link orientated stuff, it’s a bit of a departure from the original intent and I think it’s a combination of laziness and lack of imagination. My train of thought has been derailed by leaves on the lines of my mind, they need to be cleared away. It’s a motivation thing, also because I am still off work sick I have lacked the level of interaction I am usually exposed to. Besides, it’s the world cup, my mind’s on auto-pilot.
I have just watched a documentary about the fortunes of the England football team over the last couple of decades. What struck me most was the England fans (myself included) complete belief that we were capable of winning whichever competition we were in at the time. It’s even true now, after all we’ve been through we still think we can win the world cup. Until we come to terms with the fact that we haven’t a divine right to win everything we enter, we will always have the massive down that comes after our all too regular defeats. Positive, enthusiastic, patriotic…yes, arrogant ? let’s leave that to the Germans ! Yes I know they’ve won it three times, but they got lucky. COME ON ENGLAND !!!
Lately I have been plagued by song lyrics appearing in un-connected sentences, I will be reading something about the political situation in the middle east, and up pops a “Damned” lyric. Another weblog has just pointed me to an old Simon and Garfunkel song in a paragraph about something completely different. I might start saving them, just to see if they have the same effect on you. If you find any put the link in the comments, and I'll see if I can see it, then I'll make a list.
If you are one of the people who’s link has been removed, it’s nothing personal, I’m just tidying things up a little.
