Yusuf 'n Me

See things the same way.

Miles from nowhere

But it's all right...

And sometimes it's even better than all right.

Sometimes you have to get miles from nowhere to get a different vantage point. Sometimes all it takes is to shut your eyes and open them again. But damn it needs doing...this shift in seeing things the way they always were to a place where light filters through in a completely different pattern! Great song Jonas.

Yes, Patti, one never knows what joys may be found just around the corner, or on the other side of the mountain...

True enough, Annie. If I'm not mistaken, Yusuf Islam (a.k.a. Cat Stevens) penned this song while he lay dying of tuberculosis. He recovered and went on to record Tea for the Tillerman, the album that included this song.

Sometimes you have to lose everything to gain something even more precious.
