Since I Don't Have You

“...Lost in your heart, lost in your eyes
Lost every day, no map to follow
Entire days, weeks, a blur
Flickers of light, in the darkness,
Only to be enveloped in shadows once more...

- Peter Winstanley

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Today's theme repeats on this day each year.

BONUS -  - Since I Don't Have You - The Skyliners, 1959


"Since I Don't Have You" is a song by the doo-wop group The Skyliners. Released in 1958, the single reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also the top five of the R&B chart. The song, highlighted by a powerful vocal by lead singer Jimmy Beaumont, and a falsetto on the final chorus by Janet Vogel, is considered by oldies fans to be one of the best "heartbreak" ballads ever recorded, and a classic of pre-Beatles rock and roll, and is still frequently played on the radio. The song was featured in the films American Graffiti, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai, Lethal Weapon 2, and Mischief.

“Selfless acts of service and consecration refine our spirits, remove the scales from our spiritual eyes, and open the windows of heaven. By becoming the answer to someone’s prayer, we often find the answer to our own.”

   From Me ('65) of NC - 08/20/16 - "My Latest Cross Stitch Project - a Hamsa":

     I've always been captivated by the beauty and sophistication of gold and silver threads used in embroideries. I've also been planning to make this Jorja Hernandez project ever since it appeared in the December 1996 issue of Leisure Arts, The Magazine, so nearly twenty years later, I decided to make it at last, using Aida 11 instead of Aida 14, and substituting gold floss for the easier version.

   I finished it last night. I'm going hang it in the foyer by the front door. It makes me happy, and it's all about me, right?

“And thou shalt make an hanging for the door of the tent, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with needlework.
Exodus 26:36

And they shall take gold, and blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine linen.
Exodus 28:5


Arachne first invented working with the needle which this mayd of Lydia learned from the spiders, taking her first samplers and patterns from them in imitation.”

- Edward Topsell, History of Four-footed Beasts and Serpents, 1608

Since I Don't Have You

 Written by Joseph Rock (1884 – 1962), Jimmy Beaumont, Lenny Martin

Recorded by The Skyliners, December 1958

I don't have plans and schemes,
And I don't have hopes and dreams,
I-I-I don't have anything
Since I don't have you.

I don't have fond desires,
And I don't have happy hours,
I-I-I don't have anything
Since I don't have you.

I don't have happiness, and I guess
I never will again.
When you walked out on me,
In walked old misery,
And he's been here since then.

I don't have love to share,
And I don't have one who cares.
I-I-I don't have anything
Since--I don't--have--
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
