“My My Love”

So many moons have come and gone all alone
I heard this song inside me to wait
I was told but now I found a different sound
I hear when you’re around me
It’s something new because of you
I hope I hear it forever

My, my love
I’ve been without you too long
My, my love
I’ve been running too fast to belong to anyone
But then you came along

When first I laid eyes upon your face
This song replaced all the others I have written
It’s all brand new because of you
Feels like I’ve known you forever

My, my love
I’ve been without you too long
My, my love
I’ve been running too fast to belong to anyone
But then you came along

You warm me like sunshine
You cool me like summer rain
Just let me sit down beside you
Over and over again

My, my love
I’ve been without you too long
My, my love
I’ve been running too fast to belong to anyone
But then you came along

Today’s Holiday:Consualia

Today’s Holiday:

The infamous rape of the Sabine women occurred at the first Consualia in ancient Rome. Consus is said to have advised Romulus to abduct the Sabine women as wives for his supporters. The sanctuary dedicated to Consus in 272 BCE was located on the Aventine Hill in Rome, and sacrifices were held there during his festival. There were also horse and chariot races in the Circus Maximus, the large arena that lay between the Palatine and Aventine hills. Two festivals were actually held in honor of Consus—one on August 21 and the other on December 15: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

In 1939, an extraordinarily successful film version of the book was released, transferring the romantic, panoramic portrait of the Civil War and Reconstruction periods in Georgia to the big screen. The movie won 10 Academy Awards. Why did the film’s leading man, Clark Gable, threaten to boycott the premiere?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Buddhist Art

Buddhist art originated on the Indian subcontinent around the 5th century BCE, following the historical life of Gautama Buddha—the religious leader and founder of Buddhism. Around the 1st century CE, the aniconic tradition of avoiding direct representation of Buddha’s bodily form was replaced with an iconic style of art that permitted the depiction of his human figure. What monument is the largest Buddhist structure in the world and contains more than 500 Buddha statutes?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
