Hop in! Where you headed?

I aim this blog at Hitchhiking stories, obviously. However, you can take that in the 'poetic' sense, as we are 'snakes' in time and the asphalt rivers take us to many places, as well as 'places'..

PLEASE REMEMBER TO READ PREVIOUS PAGES..
.... occasionally my own 'Road' spurs me to use this blog to communicate with someone I've 'travelled with' who holds a special meaning to me.

HELLO AND GOODBYE
From the film "From Noon Till Three" (1976)
(Music: Elmer Bernstein / Lyrics: Alan & Marilyn Bergman)

Jill Ireland (Film Soundtrack) - 1976




Some have a lifetime, some just a day
Love isn't something you measure that way
Nothing's ever forever, forever's a lie
All we have is between 'Hello' and 'Goodbye'

It's not how long the Spring
It's not how wide the sky
It's just how sweet the time
Between 'Hello' and 'Goodbye'

The music has ended, I still hear the song
Our moment was brief, but our kisses were long
Though the loving is over, the love of you stays
And the mem'ry will warm me  the rest of my days

It's not how long the Spring
It's not how wide the sky
It's just how sweet the time
Between 'Hello' and 'Goodbye'

We never shared September
Or watched the colours of Fall
But in that wink of time we had
We knew we had it all

It's not how long the Spring
It's not how wide the sky
It's just how sweet the time
Between 'Hello' and 'Goodbye'
