IMHO there are some things best left undiscussed on the internet for the whole world to read. I for one am embarassed by references to memories of personal and intimate moments spent with someone I love and respect with my whole heart. A tattoo on the arm is one thing, but Good Lord , I don't need to know what is or is not on the rest of his body. Jeez.

Well at many of our ages, Gord included, our stories will soon be history. If we don't tell them now they will be forever lost. Just a thought but I vote for full disclosure, LOL.

Bill, a man after my own heart! Life's too short to worry about the little things and if we're upright, above ground, and accepting nourishment, raise a glass, have a laugh, and enjoy your memories while you still have the brain matter to remember them! :D

Well said BillW & Sheryl.



Life's too short
by Michael Charles Messineo


Life's too short to dwell on things
that pull and tear on your heart strings
so park those thoughts that make you worry
and create new goals to which you'll hurry.

Make your list of things to do
that always seemed not part of you
make yourself explore unknowns
write down your thoughts dig up those bones

Take a step toward things that scare you
Show who's boss while mind prepares to
overcome what seems unrealistic
before you lose it and go ballistic

Do something different every day
and watch as life shows new path ways
Life's too short to dwell on things
that pull and tear on your heart strings.

Amen! I've often thought Gord should write it all down, if not for posterity for his kids and grandkids (when they're old enough, lol.) When he's gone, all those stories are too and the only ones remaining are reflected through others' rememberances.

To Jesse Joe: My, My, My, what a tempest in a teapot! As for what I laughingly call "The Great Tattoo War of 2007", thanks for the very appropos quote. Gotta save that one. Truer words were never said.

And to Auburn Annie: I DEFINITELY think GL should write his memoirs but don't think he ever will. It's my opinion he gets his emotions and memories out through his music. I was raised by a wonderful Midwestern man, and have tons of Midwestern relatives. They just were raised in a place and in an era in which men were taught NOT to express their feelings. (And please, that's NOT a jab against the Midwest; living in California, I've wished LOTS of times people would just SHUT UP!TMI.) Gord was born and raised during the end of that era; I think he found his own way to express his feelings and still be not only "accepted" but praised and financially rewarded by his peers and parents. I recently saw a 30-year old interview with GL in which he states he hates to be interviewed because the interviewer "wants to look into your soul." From what I saw so many years ago, with his interactions with other people, believe me, he keeps his emotions locked deep inside. Furthermore, I think he should write his memoirs because: I work in the law, and have seen numerous times that you can have 10 people testify under oath as to how an incident occurred and have 10 different versions. Each version was true in that person's own mind! I also think GL would write it down because he survived not only the bad but the good! I think to hear from a SURVIVOR of all he went through might help others - maybe we'll have to just get that through his words of his wonderful songs!

My, my, so serious for a Thursday morning! Thanks for your opinion. Regards - Sheryl "from Northern Cal."

Rock on, Auburn Annie! Best regards - Sheryl

I stand steadfast in my belief that private and intimate moments should not be shared with the whole world on the internet. I think it's sleazy and not at all in keeping with the normal tone of our conversations on Corfid.

For the one who want this Midwesterner to "shut up" you'll be waiting a long time my friend. And to those who may think we (or I) "think small" then you obviously do not understand my philosophy on life in the least.

Bye... [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Please don't take my comments personally. I respect your opinion, I just have a different take on things. And just for the record, we have discussed many topics here at corfid that sparked debate. That's healthy and normal.

Mostly my interest lies in upcoming dates and setlists. And I have enjoyed meeting and hanging around with several of the fine men & women who post here. I have little interest in what color trousers he wore last night BUT some do and I think that's OK, eh ?

But when someone shows up here - like his daughter - who claim to have known him "for real" and not just the chatting backstage or waiting in the alley routine, well that I think is wonderful.

To get a little insight into his mindset when he wrote these songs is priceless.

I for one don't want anyone to shut up so keep coming back.

Peace,

Bill

BILLW,

Good points. I don't think one need worry about intimate details of personal relationships being revealed by Lightfoot, but a reflective of his career ups and downs would be a fascinating read. I imagine there are many tales to tell.

Dear Gitch:

I never said anywhere I wanted you to shut up, number one. Number two, I wasn't the one that started what you think is so sleezy - there was talk about bathtub scenes before I EVER left what I believed to be an inocuous comment. Number three, please do not refer to me as "my friend". That gave me such a good laugh! And number four, where did I ever say I thought you "think small."

I never intended to disturb anyone with my original comment, but don't you think it's time to just drop this! Let's move on, okay?

Oh, and if you want to get sensitive - got a good one for you. You said "Jeez." I'd rethink your sensitivity for calling the entity a lot of people think is the son of God something that sounds like a bad cheese-like substance and ends with "whiz"! You see, it's all relative, isn't it?

We agree to disagree, hopefully, and stop this incredibly silly waste of time over something so insignificant!

Oh, if you want to comment on something really tacky, you should take a gander at the male enhancement commercial under General Discussions!

You have a NICE DAY, you hear? :D

Hi, RM!

OOOH-OOOH, CATFIGHT!

This is just AMAZING to me...and I for one would love to read the continuation of his story after he fell off my radar. Like I say, SURVIVOR stories are so beneficial! However, my favorite song is "A Painter Passing Through", and he does say, and I'm paraphrasing, "And now I am old, let me rest." Let's do so and just enjoy the beauty of the music!
