Lyrics for Friday and Lake Whetstone Goslings

Days Like These
By Janis Ian

On days like these when the rain won't fall
And the sky is so dry that even birds can't call
I can feel your tears disappearing in the air
Carried on the breeze on days like these

It's years like these that makes a young man old
Bend his back against the promises that life should hold
They can make him wise they can drive him to his knees
Nothing comes for free on days like these

But you can't reap what you don't sow
And you can't plant in fallow ground
So let us fill this empty earth with hope
Until the rains come down

In lives like these where every moment counts
I add up all the things rhat I can live without
When the one thing left is the blessing of my dreams
I can make my peace with days like these


My day involved squirrels and chipmunks and gorgeous weather and restringing a necklace with little glass animals, which I want to be able to wear so I changed the tarnished beads for glittery ones. Tonight I chatted with fannish friends and ran late trying to organize photos and we caught up on Kung Fu. Here are some photos of the geese and goslings in Montgomery Village at Lake Whetstone last weekend: 








Now I'm watching the Dawson's Creek season three finale in which I am enormously grateful to discover that although Netflix did not pay to keep Jessica Andrews' "I Will Be There For You" during the scene in which Jack's dad tries to comfort him about being gay, they did keep Pancho's Lament's "Promise Me This" during the scene where Pacey paints Joey's wall and Janis Ian's "Days Like These" during the wedding and the last scene. Also I'm super glad that Mary Beth Maziarz was a college friend of Greg Berlanti!
