Quote of the day – Haruki Murakami

“If you can love someone with your whole heart,
even one person,
then there’s salvation in life.
Even if you can’t get together with that person.”
― Haruki Murakami

Rekindled – NBC


It was not love at first sight and
I’m not quite sure how it all started.
I remember I like you
more and more each passing day
being the dreamy girl that I was.
The kind of feeling
that was hard to explain.
I knew it was love and
that you felt the same way too.
Many said it’s just infatuation
I would  forget you soon.
But why do I have the same strong emotion 
deep within me still?
Perhaps we were too young then 
to think about falling in love.
For the years ahead were uncertain,
our circumstances so different.
Many things we left unspoken and
we  just drifted apart
like a message in a bottle
floating in the sea.
If I’m granted a wish today
I wish for an hour with you
to tell you how I felt
how much I love you
how I had missed you.
And before I go
I will wish you well and
say goodbye.


Valentine Zoo – Karl Fuchs

I’m an animal lover, I’m happy to say.

And I love them and pet them most every day.

So for you, Valentine, I thank heaven above,

Because you’re like the creatures I love,
You’re cuddly and cute as a warm, playful kitten.

With your animal nature, my love, I am smitten.

You walk like a lioness stalking the plain,

With your dangerous eyes and your beautiful mane.

It’s such a pleasure to pet you, as you sigh and you purr,
I run my hand over you, like stroking your fur.

I’m a strong Alpha wolf, with you at my side,
Sharing love, food and shelter, and feelings of pride.

These feelings of animal love we can share,

As I find different ways to show that I care.

So won’t you please be my own private zoo?
My Valentine, I love to play with you.

By Karl Fuchs




Joke of the day – The two Jewish gentelmen


Two Jewish gentlemen were seated together on a plane. They had been in the air for 30 minutes when the younger man asked the other if he had the time.

There was no answer. “Can you tell me the time please?”

Again there was no answer and the younger man detected some kind of deliberate resistance.

The aircraft was on its descent path when the older man quickly looked at his watch and said it was ten past three.

There was silence for a while before the young man said, “Why didn’t you tell me the time earlier?”

“Well, you know what it is like on flights. People get talking to each other. We could become friendly, especially when we are both Jewish. I would be obliged to invite you home. I have a lovely daughter and you are a young man, quite handsome. Romance could blossom and before long you could be asking for her hand in marriage. And to put it bluntly, I don’t want a son-in-law who hasn’t got a watch.”
