Not really unhappy just sad in a warm comforting way. I love listening to melancholy music, mostly folk music, songs of lost love, of men marching off to war to fight for King and Country. Of maidens being deserted by their loves. Now I’m sure you are thinking WHAT ? how depressing, but to me they are part of me of my make up . I sit here at my computer being kept company by Show of Hands, Jim Moray you see I could go on…..
One of my Christmas presents this year is the ‘Penguin Book of English Folk Songs’ I’m hoping to make some journal/scrapping pages using the lyrics as inspiration.
What inspires you ? Do you have a favourite book of poems or quotations ? I would love to know..
