No shadow
No stars
No moon
No cars
November only believes
In a pile of dead leaves
And a moon
That's the color of bone.

No prayers for November
To linger longer
To remember.

November has tied me
To an old dead tree
Get word to April
To rescue me.

November's cold chain
Made of wet boots and rain
And shiny black ravens
On chimney smoke lanes
November seems odd
An act of God

Adapted from Tom Waits - November

The template for the forum has changed. Hopefully this will fix some issues members have been having when trying to join groups. We know it's a bit "bright" at the moment, and will be working to get our old blue back - in the meantime get out the sunglasses, oh and your inbox and notifications are top right now. :)

Don't forget you can play Guess the Theme on English radio for the last time on Sunday: http://www.englishradio.be. You are looking for one word that joins the songs together within the GTT playset. The answer(s) to GTT#5 was emotion and feeling. Congratulations to Zom, who has booked her prize - a free 1 on 1 session with Lynne.

    “There is much to learn about mothering, she said -
    you will need to give beyond your limits,
    yet not give yourself away.
    you will need to soothe and calm,
    even when peace eludes you.
    you will be required to believe without any doubts
    when others shake their heads and sigh.
    to trust your instincts, and follow your heart,
    digging into depths that you never even knew
    were there.
    you will need to give your all,
    and then let go.
    encouraging their growth, cheering their flight,
    all the while watching pieces of yourself fly away.
    and when it's over, your job turns to you.
    and offering all that you've learned to yourself.
    it will be time to mother you.”

    I was so excited that I gave away all the ideas during internal meeting.

    If I give away all my past to you then you will not even like to talk with me.
    @Frank please point out my mistakes.

    @shah51272 If I gave away all about my past, you probably wouldn't talk to me anymore.
