One Night Love Will Remind You, How We Touched And Went Our Separate Ways

“Feeling that it’s gone
Can’t change your mind
If we can’t go on to survive the tide
Love divides”

Daughtry Ft. Lzzy Hale – Separate Ways [Worlds Apart] [Journey Cover]

This post is an off-the-cuff idea that hit me last night after finishing all my WoW duties. I happened to check out Twitter quickly, saw some new stuff from Daughtry, and went “Ohhh.” I’m glad I did because while it is a cover, it’s a damn good one and it gave me an idea to kind of run with. Originally this was formatted differently because well I didn’t have what I do now. I’m sure the original stuff will get used at some point but this definitely won out. I had to pull Cori out to accomplish the goal but she was a good soldier and filled in perfectly while also making good use of my credit card. Such is life right?

I feel like I need to explain this one a little bit because I’m sure some people won’t get it or will get the wrong impression. Not saying all of you will because that wouldn’t be fair, but I know some might misinterpret. I have on occasion sat and written out letters that aren’t sent to someone per se, but they are written to get things out of my head or “on paper” for myself. So before anyone gets ahead of themselves, none of these are a “not-over-something thing or longing for XYZ” or anything like that. It’s just my version of my own therapy that I apply to the blog and the things I deal with or have gone through. I like being able to do that because I’m not really a credits-only blogger, and that’s no shot at those who are, I could never blog the amount they do even with just credits, it’s a different skillset entirely. In all of the time I’ve sat and done these kinds of posts, I did skip over one letter, probably intentionally for a while there, but I thought it was best to do it now.

Dear P,

I realized in all of this time that I never did sit and write a letter to you and after all of the years we had I feel like I kind of failed on that. There is time to correct that and I’m taking it now. Our story has played out on these pages and originally where we worked together on Mask and Mien, so it’s not news or a shock to anyone to hear about things. There is nothing but good to say about the time we spent together. A lot of times I don’t know that people can say that when something comes to an end. I’ve wondered (as has been obvious in posts before), questioned things, been lost, been found, and been lost again, but never angry. I think that’s because it all just worked, it wasn’t a job, it was effortless and full of joy.

We did a lot, in terms of the blog and outside of it. I’ve never done more blogs with someone than I have with you. It’s where everything started, and my style evolved. I think we both taught each other different things and grew with those tools. I know I learned a lot about styling and how to pair items up, creative ways to use something, and positioning things so they made sense. Those are little things that I still try and practice today. Doing full credits, almost always, even if it takes so much longer to do because the goal is to show people where to find the items, not hide them. Hell, I still use the post styles and formats today. I’ve added some of my own of course but the old favorites are still there.

You said it best way back when, I could always count on you to hear me, be there, whatever was necessary, and I tried my best to do the same. When things came to an end I know we talked about staying friends and all of the things people say when that happens. I didn’t hold up my end and that died off. I wish I would have been better about that then because I never did stop caring. No matter where we may be in our respective lives, I’m sorry I failed and I wish you nothing but the best. We may not talk anymore and that’s 100% my doing, but know that I see things from afar and love to see you enjoying the things you love to do. I hope you never stop that.

I’m sure it’s a bit crazy to both read this and wonder about me even writing it. Sometimes you just have to get it out and in the end, this is how I do things, you know that better than just about anyone. I regret losing contact with someone that was as close as close can get. I thought leaving would be easier for me to handle and in some stupid way easier on you as well. I’m quite sure it did the opposite in both regards. The things you would do if you could change the way you went about something. There is always the would’ve, could’ve, should’ve thing but we all know that isn’t going to help anything. I can’t change the past though and for all the good that was in it, I wouldn’t want to. For whatever it’s worth, I wanted you to know that. Life gives you what you need when you need it, sometimes you don’t understand why or what, but trust that it’s right. Our stars aligned for a time and I’m forever grateful for that. Keeping on being you.

P.S. I figured you’d enjoy Daughtry and Lzzy Hale doing this cover.


“Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she oughta fall down, tells you she’s hurtin’ ‘fore she keens. Makes her a home.”

Now, these letters are complete, for the time being. I’ve avoided this one for quite a long time but sometimes you need to do the things necessary to get the point of getting this done. It took longer than I wanted, but it was time. Our past is our past, and it was great. As much as I’d love to go back and change anything negative, I know that usually if you screw with one thing it messes up another, so what good do I ruin by fixing something bad. Life is full of choices. We all make them, you have to move forward though. I’ll still look back fondly on the good times.

“If you must go
I wish you luck
You’ll never walk alone
Take care, my love”
