Try to forget (Radio Forg Edit) - De/Vision

Time to go travel. New perspectives. New mind.

In about two months' time, I shall venture.
I guess I waited for a year, forlornly.
I remember buying mochi at Bugis+. It brings back a smile.
Some paths are meant to be walked alone, in life, sometimes, one cannot expect the support of the closest and the dearest. It is a lonely path to be traversed. The realisation after much experience is sobering but not unexpected.

Leningrad cowboys - Those were the days




Leningrad Cowboys - Those Were The Days (TV - Sweden - 1995)



I have always liked this old Mary Hopkins song. It was based on an old traditional Russian folk song. Here, the Finnish group, the Leningrad Cowboys, perform their version of it.

I had used to sing it when I was a child.

"Remember how we laughed away the hours
And dreamed of all the great things we could do"

"Then the busy years went rushing by us
We lost our starry notions on the way"


I had once thought of writing a children's book with her.
