With or Without you – U2

This is possibly my most favourite song ever. Within its fateful notes it carries the most significant memories of my life. It means the absolute world to me, and I want to share it with you all today, also because it is a timeless classic. Good ol’U2.

This is to all the wonderful friends I have made in my life that have come and gone, but have left their mark deep within my soul, to those special people that have helped changed the course of my life and how I see the world whether we always saw eye-to-eye or not.

Today is a sentimental day, and life is so transient, with every moment a passing memory.

  1. You said it right: life is so transient, with every moment a passing memory. I love U2 too. One of my favorite bands, this one of my favorite songs.

    But very nice gesture Ishaiya.

    Wishing you the best today…….. xo

    1. Thanks for stopping by T and enjoying the music. It’s great to hear from you, and can only hope that you are well.
      Life is a little tough sometimes, you never know when it’s going to spin you on your head.

      Wishing you all the best too
      Ish xo

      1. Hi lady.

        You got it. It was nice to hear. I am, getting stronger I suppose (no choice in the matter but what is there to do). I’m not Merlin, can’t swing a wand and make my friend get up unfortunately. 😦

        Yes, life is sometimes. You never know when it’s going to spin you on your head. That’s right.

        But how are you? How is life with you my friend?

        Looking forward to your response. πŸ™‚


      2. It’ll take as long as it takes T, but you will get stronger.
        I’ve been grieving my own losses lately; always a process of reassessment and readjustment. It’s been an exhausting past few weeks.
        Today is my birthday, and despite my recent trepidation about it considering the events of my last birthday, I’m feeling in good spirits. I went to see my little girl perform in another school concert yesterday evening, which was great. πŸ™‚

        I do at least have my week away to look forward to, yes I finally got around to booking my trip back to Venice. Although my friend is unable to come with me due to bad health, so it’s just me again. But actually I’m fine with that. I need to be able to just be on my own time-table for a while. I’m looking forward to it, excited to be returning to my favourite city, it’s good for my soul. I go on the 13 August, so not long to go now πŸ™‚


      3. Awwww, HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISH!!!!!!!!!!!

        [Virtual hug darling.] πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

        Another year is a blessing. Crawl in the eyes of your kids. πŸ˜‰

        What has been going on with you in terms of losses, feel free to chat with me about it if you’d like.

        Glad you’re in GOOD SPIRITS! Awww, how was the performance? Guess what I bought a camera too. So I may do ONE video vlog. I resist being on camera though, even having pictures taken, so that is not a promise. Lol.

        Oooooo trip to Venice!!!!!!! OMG please take lots of pictures. I’ve always wanted to go to Italy. I enjoy the men, but the art!!!!!

        Yes, take the moment as a breather. Some quiet time. Do you like art? History? Great place for that (sites) too right? Ah. It’s your favorite city~ πŸ™‚ I can imagine why!

        Oh that’s exciting. I know you are. I am for you! Lol.


        Aside from that are you okay? Feel free to chat with me and if you prefer more privately (if you want to), writerofpure@gmail.com
