Entre Nous

“If we knew each other's secrets, what comforts we should find.

- John Churton Collins
(26 Mar 1848 - 25 Sept 1908)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   Soooo, how old do you have to be when you consider a song from 1980 to be a "new" one?

BONUS - Entre Nous - Rush, 1980


Entre Nous ("Between Us" in French) is the fourth track on the 1980s album Permanent Waves by progressive rock band Rush. It was also released as a single. The only live performances of the song to date occurred during the 2007 leg of the tour to promote Snakes & Arrows, an album released on May 1 of that year. It was then featured on the live album released on April 15, 2008.

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 02/24/15:

“A pivotal spiritual attribute is that of self-mastery—the strength to place reason over appetite. Self-mastery builds a strong conscience. And your conscience determines your moral responses in difficult, tempting, and trying situations.”

- Russell M. Nelson
(b. 09 Sept 1924)

   Thank you, Susan!

From Joan Lauterbach Krause ('60) of VA - 06/12/18:

   Thank you, Joan!

 From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 02/25/19:

(Shungite--is one of the best water purifiers.)
Shungite comes from Russia.
How to make Shungite water.

My limited knowledge is Elite Shungite for water purification. Black Shungite works well for electromagnetic protection, but not for water purification. It's not really expensive and does not have to be replaced.
She gives a different perspective and claims only 3 nuggets.
Her explanations are informative and clear.
Shungite a way to test it, that is easy and pretty neat.

~j~ Angel Songs ~j~

Softer than my usual. Both songs are sung nicely, visually appealing and angelic. The cherubs and feather effects are great. The Lamb song cuts off abruptly at the end, but until then it's so pretty.
Eurythmics - There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) (Remastered)
Lamb - Gabriel (Official Video)

Poets Of The Fall- Carnival Of Rust

& An awesome voice, as well as an awesome visual show, but nothing to do with angels.
When videos were good and people wore ample clothes.

Thank you, Shari - a very interesting array!

 From Jane Monfalcone Simmons ('61) of GA - 02/24/19:

   Thanks, Jane!

From My Friend, April, of ID - 02/24/18:


 I love this idea!

    OOH! Thank you, April, so do I!

7 Shawls, 1 Secret Stitch: Mysterious Knitting Patterns - "Sometimes we need a little mystery in our lives to spice things up. I’m not saying you’ve got to bust out the Agatha Christie novels or anything (although come to think of it, that sounds pretty nice right about now!) but every now and then a little curiosity can go a long way..."

Earl and Bubba were quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing tobacco and drinking beer when suddenly Bubba said, "Think I'm gonna divorce the wife... she ain't spoke to me in over 2 months."

Earl spit overboard, takes a long, slow sip of beer and said, "Better think it over... women like that are hard to find."

Entre Nous

Lyrics by Neil Peart (b. 12 Sept 1952)

Music composed by Alex Lifeson (b. 27 Aug 1953) and Geddy Lee (b. 29 July 1953)

Recorded by Rush, 1980

 We are secrets to each other
Each one's life a novel
No-one else has read
Even joined in bonds of love
We're linked to one another
By such slender threads
We are planets to each other
Drifting in our orbits
To a brief eclipse
Each of us a world apart
Alone and yet together
Like two passing ships

Just between us
I think it's time for us to recognize
the differences we sometimes feared to show
Just between us
I think it's time for us to realize
The spaces in between
Leave room
For you and I to grow

We are strangers to each other
Full of sliding panels
An illusion show
Acting well-rehearsed routines
Or playing from the heart?
It's hard for one to know

Just between us
I think it's time for us to recognize
the differences we sometimes feared to show
Just between us
I think it's time for us to realize
The spaces in between
Leave room
For you and I to grow

We are islands to each other
Building hopeful bridges
On the troubled seas
Some are burned and swept away
Some we would not choose
But we're not always free

Just between us
I think it's time for us to recognize
the differences we sometimes feared to show
Just between us
I think it's time for us to realize
The spaces in between
Leave room
For you and I to grow
