Eagles – ‘I Wish You Peace’

I wish you peace when the cold winds blow
Warmed by the fire’s glow
I wish you comfort in the, the lonely time
And arms to hold you when you ache inside

I wish you hope when things are going bad
Kind words when times are sad
I wish you shelter from the, the raging wind
Cooling waters at the fever’s end

–Bernie Leadon, Patti Davis

Goodbye to Sue Grafton

The alphabet now ends with “Y”.

Mystery writer Sue Grafton has died in Santa Barbara, California. She was 77.

Grafton was the author of the Kinsey Millhone series, in which the title of each book begins with sequential letters of the alphabet. The first book is titled “A is for Alibi”, and the last is “Y is for Yesterday”.

Kinsey Millhone is one of my favorite mystery protagonists. I have often wondered what Grafton would do for titles after “Z”. Now, we will never know.

I Don’t Want to Hear Anymore

I’ve seen that look before
I know it well; it comes as no surprise
You’ve been avoiding me
But now you want to talk it over
Before you take my hand
And tell me softly in a whisper
There’s no need to explain
I’ve read the book; I know how this all ends

I don’t want to hear any more
You don’t need to tell me it’s over
I’ve been here before
