Somehow the Beatles song I like most is “In My Life” …
There are places I’ll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life i’ve loved them all
So before I forget, dig it up from Youtube.

Friendship is genuine when two friends can enjoy each others company without speaking a word to one another.
Indeed, instead of speaking, I played a few CDs that evening … “When I Dream”, “What a Wonderful World”, “If You Don’t Know Me By Now”, and of course “Sailing”.
In movies “Dead Poets Society”, and “Four Weddings and One Funeral ” there are two poems I liked very much. And of course, they are very well known ones as well …
Just an excerpt …
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever; I was wrong.
Simple, beautiful but emotional …
Too bad could not find his CD in town. Oh, his name is Michael Chapdelaine.
