Early Winter










You, you know how to get me so low
My heart had a crash when we spoke
I can't fix what you broke
You, you always have a reason
Again & again this feelin'
Why do I give in?
& I always was, always was one for crying
I always was one for tears
The sun's getting cold, It's snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
It's sad
& I always was, always was one for crying
I always was one for tears
No, I never was, never was one for lying
You lied to me all of these years
The sun's getting cold, It's snowing
Looks like an Early Winter for us
An Early Winter
Why? Why do you act so stupid?
Why? You know that I'm always right
It hurts & I can't remember sunlight
The leaves are changing colour for us
& it gets too much, yeah it gets so much
Starting over & over & over again
It looks like an Early Winter for us

Exerpt from Early Winter by Gwen Stefani

Touching words...
I hope you feel okay... It's hard getting over such things.

Hello Margot!
I feel great, thanks for your concern. Yes, it is difficult, but life goes on. There is too much beauty in this world to waste too much energy being sad or thinking about things that are out of your hands. Some things happen for a reason; trust life. I hope you and your bunnies are well!
Best,
Eve

Eve, very profound feelings, but I see the pathos and ethos in your words. that is what makes us grow and become greater human beings. These is a wonderful world out there.

I certainly appreciate your careful dissection and analysis of my prior remark. Pathos yes, of course, to be polite and to maintain a certain level of self-salvation and preservation. Ethos; this would depend greatly on which position you hold regarding the meaning, Isocrates or Aristotle? But I think we would both agree that high ethos was likely present.
My question to you is “what” makes us grow and become greater human beings? Allowing ourselves to feel deeply, grieve intensely, forgive and allow love and trust to envelope us once again? Sure, sounds great…thanks for the tip…
