Today is cold, Sojourner…

… I still could not accepted…

“The Parting Glass”

by Shaun Davey

“Forever In Your Debt”

With thanks to those who blew the wind,

And those who sailed the ship,

We sailed it tight against the tide,

And I shall be forever in your debt.

All the money that e’er I had

I spent it in good company

And all the harm I’ve ever done

Alas, it was to none but me

And all I’ve done for want of wit

To memory now, I can’t recall

So fill to me the parting glass

Good night and joy be to you all!

Fill to me the parting glass

And drink a health whate’er befalls

Then gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

Of all the comrades that e’er I had

They’re sorry for my going away

And all the sweethearts that e’er I had

They’d wish me one more day to stay.

Since it fell into my lot

that I should rise,and you should not

I’ll gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

But since it fell into my lot

That I should rise and you should not

I’ll gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

So fill to me the parting glass

And drink a health whate’er befalls

Then gently rise and softly call

Good night and joy be to you all!

The New Abnormal

The friends of David Williams sadly announce his passing on February 20, 2021.

Followers of this blog will greatly miss his dedication to seeking out truth in times present and past. Going forward, he would have wanted us to continue to always ask questions and question answers.

Thank you Dave for your mission to help all of us to live the lives we were meant to live.

  1. Thank you for letting us know. I am saddened by this news. Sojourner was the first person to find my son’s site. He supported me, in some of my darkest times. I will eternally be grateful for everything he did for me, and my son! The world has lost another great earthling 😦

  2. Dear Migo, I am so sorry to hear this news about Dave. He was a dear friend. Thank you for your fitting tribute to him.

    A year or so ago, he shared some of the music that he composed. I am sure he would approve my sharing it with you if you’re interested. You can let me know via email.

    Sending my gratitude along with a virtual hug as I raise a virtual glass with you to celebrate Dave’s life.

  3. Beautifully done, my friend. I too was an online friend of his: back before my old blog got taken down by WordPress. He and I used to support each others’ blogs and interact in a helpful, friendly and supportive manner. He will be missed. Thanks for making this tribute to him.

  4. I am shocked by this news. I’ve been wondering about him! His site kept saying ‘coming soon’, and I’ve been ‘foolishly’ waiting! All this time…I’ve been acting unsuspecting towards his absence. Such horrible horrible news! I remember he mentioned ‘a fall’. Then disappeared

  5. I cried last night. Dave, (I can’t believe I’m going to say ‘was’), a ‘good good’ human. Incredibly rare to see these days. Gentle, caring and refreshingly real! Intelligent, yet never boastful. I miss him….
