I’ve noticed you have been doing a bit of quoting recently. it’s a fun exercise trying to figure them out Any particular reason for the quotes? 💚 LikeLiked by 1 person There’s a bit of New Year’s Day (U2), Crush With Eyeliner (REM) and All I Ever Wanted (Shinedown) somewhere in there! 😉 Yeah, I’ve always posted lyrics and quotes (or ‘Randoms’ as I call them), but it has become a more of a regular thing of late. The quotes are usually from things I’ve seen or read recently and have struck a chord. They are always cited so folks know they are not my words. The lyrics are a bit different. They are posted on a Friday and are usually songs I’m listening to as I have a few beers to wind down after the working week. I don’t cite them – I just tag the song/artist instead. In my mind they are like little easter eggs for folks to investigate and potentially find themselves if that particular lyric speaks to them in the same way it does me. Fun for all the family lol 😉🖤 LikeLiked by 1 person Probably why I got so confused. That’s quite the mash up. I didn’t realise all the randoms were quoted 🤣 I thought some wee your random thoughts. I like that. I guess a lot of us have that moment of inspiration, though few probably think of collecting it. A charming little game of discovery! That is a brilliant idea! Also gives people an invite into your current state of mind 😉💚 LikeLiked by 1 person Definitely.
