Happy [Jealous] New Year

Dear Friends, I have been rather blog-vacant as of late.
But don't be jealous.
I've been a little bit of everything-vacant lately.
Just….. blah. 
Not exactly depressed, but unfocused, I guess.
My dearest friend invited me over for Christmas and I went. On the long drive I re-acquainted myself with this old Shania Twain CD. Real devotees of Twainism [and I don't mean "Mark"] will know that the CD is a double CD set. Same songs, but done twice. One is more country, and the other, known as the RED one….. is more upbeat. I play that one! It's produced by her ex-husband Mutt Lange. The guy is a guru of record production. One song found itself on repeat mode, repeatedly.
It's called I'm Jealous, and [go figure], it's about jealousy.
The song itself made me think a lot about love. The lyrics are simple, but profound. She's just basically saying that she is jealous of anything that has closer access to her lover than she does. She doesn't want to share her lover with anything, even inanimate things, like the moon, wind, sun, or rain.
I thought about it a lot, and concluded that I think those feelings are intrinsic to what true love is.
Or should be.
With that, I give you the song, via YouTube. 
And I wish you a Happy New Year… with either new love or renewed love a central part of it.
Real love. Not the un-jealous kind.

Happy New Year Cippy. All the best of health, prosperity and inner peace.
I've never heard this one of Shania's and I must say, though she's not a favorite of mine I do like that song. Nice the way you make me discover more than just new authors and books.
Thanks for everything!
