He was a very talented artist.... and in this song he tackled a very deep problem of modern society.... even though he probably wrote it 50 years ago.

Still very true after all these years!

Sadly... the children don't play outside anymore.

It still exist and can be found beautiful nature outside of big towns, and in less industrial areas. I am living in Zagreb, Croatia. We have many parks and gardens inside town, but of course and to much buildings that "eating" greenery. Because of "progress" in someone's money pocket.

      Not in your heart
      Does anyone here know to write happiness? Has anyone heard of love today? Maybe it is more important to know how to erase that which long ago stayed behind us.   I can't remember my first song, the kisses, dear faces. There is neither you, nor the old fountain, I don't remember the sea, I don't remember the birds.   Nothing is as it once was, but it will be once again. I know, there is no flying with one wing The time needs to connect our threads.   Ref. Even in your heart there is no more summer, I cannot be salt in your hair, The coast is solitary and the storm is getting ready, Where did the time take us? Only wine is remained   Ref. 2x   Only wine is remained https://lyricstranslate.com

      Hello, it's me, I was wondering
      If after all these years you'd like to meet to go over everything
      They say that time's supposed to heal, yeah
      But I ain't done much healing

      Hello, can you hear me?
      I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be
      When we were younger and free
      I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet

      There's such a difference between us
      And a million miles


      Hello from the other side
      I must've called a thousand times 
      To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
      But when I call you never seem to be home

      Hello from the outside
      At least I can say that I've tried 
      To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
      But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

      Hello, how are you?
      It's so typical of me to talk about myself, I'm sorry
      I hope that you're well
      Did you ever make it out of that town where nothing ever happened?

      It's no secret
      That the both of us are running out of time

      So hello from the other side
      I must've called a thousand times 
      To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
      But when I call you never seem to be home

      Hello from the outside
      At least I can say that I've tried 
      To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
      But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

      Ooh, anymore
      Ooh, anymore
      Ooh, anymore
      Anymore...

      Hello from the other side
      I must've called a thousand times 
      To tell you I'm sorry, for everything that I've done
      But when I call you never seem to be home

      Hello from the outside
      At least I can say that I've tried 
      To tell you I'm sorry, for breaking your heart
      But it don't matter, it clearly doesn't tear you apart anymore

      Rita Coolidge - Close The Window, Calm The Light 1978
      Outside the rain begins and it may never end
      So cry no more on the shore
      A dream will take us out to sea
      Forever more forever more
       
      Close your eyes and dream
      And you can be with me
      'Neath the waves through the caves of hours
      Long forgotten now
      We're all alone
      We're all alone
       
      Close the window
      Calm the light
      And it will be alright
      No need to bother now
      Let it out
      Let it all begin
      Learn how to pretend
       
      Once a story's told
      It can't help but grow old
      Roses do
      Lovers too
      So cast your seasons to the wind
       
      And hold me dear
      Oh, hold me dear
       
      Close the window
      Calm the light
      And it will be alright
      No need to bother now
      Let it out
      Let it all begin
      All's forgotten now
      We're all alone oh-oh, we're all alone
       
      Close the window
      Calm the light
      And it will be alright
      No need to bother now
      Let it out
      Let it all begin
       
      Owe it to the wind, my love
      (Instrumental)
      All forgotten now
      My Love

      The greatest gift
      Versions: #1#2#3#4 I'd like to offer you a gift Something sweet Something rare Not an ordinary gift Not one of those that you lost Or never opened Or that you have left in the train Or never accepted But one of those that you open and cry That you are happy about and you don't pretend to be On this day of mid-September I will dedicate to you My greatest gift   I'll like to give your smile away to the moon So that whoever looks at it at night, can think of you So it would remember to you that my love is important And that it doesn't matter what people say Because you have protected me with your jealousy And even though very tired you smile never disapperead I have to go but in my heart I know Your presence is always an arrival And never a departure My greatest gift My greatest gift   I would like you to offer me a gift An untold dream Give it to me right now One of those that I don't know how to open In front of other people Because my greatest gift It's only ours forever.   I'll like to give your smile away to the moon So whoever looks at it at night, can think of you So it would remember to you that my love is important And that it doesn't matter what people say Because you have protected me with your jealousy And even though very tired you smile never disapperead I have to go but in my heart I know Your presence is always an arrival And never...   And if the end had to come now Let it be in a ravine Not in order to hate me But only because I want to fly And if this agony denies everything to you If it denies to you the life itself, breathe mine And I was being very careful not to fall in love before I met you And I was confusing my life with the others' I don't want to harm myself anymore now Love, love   I'll like to give your smile away to the moon So whoever looks at it at night, can think of you So it would remember to you that my love is important And that it doesn't matter what people say And then Given love, taken love, never rendered love A love as great as the time that never surrendered A love that speaks to me with your eyes I have in front of me You are, you are. you are My greatest gift https://lyricstranslate.com

      Oh God, How I Love You
      In the sky, the clouds that are going towards the sea, pass by. They seem like white handkerchiefs that salute our love.   Oh God..., how I love you! It is not possible, to have in my arms so much happiness. To kiss your lips that smell of wind. We two, in love like nobody in the world...   Oh God.., how I love you! It makes me cry. In all my life I have never felt a love so dear, a love so true. Who can stop the river that runs towards the sea, the swallows in the sky that are going towards the sun, who can change the love, my love for you?   Oh God..., how I love you!   A love so dear, a love so true. Who can stop the river that runs towards the sea, the swallows in the sky that are going towards the sun, who can change the love, my love for you?   Oh God..., how I love you!

      I remember when we broke up the first time
      Saying, "This is it, I've had enough," 'cause like
      We hadn't seen each other in a month
      When you said you needed space. (What?)
      Then you come around again and say
      "Baby, I miss you and I swear I'm gonna change, trust me."
      Remember how that lasted for a day?
      I say, "I hate you," we break up, you call me, "I love you."

      Ooh, we called it off again last night
      But ooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you

      We are never ever ever getting back together,
      We are never ever ever getting back together,
      You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
      But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

      Like, ever...

      I'm really gonna miss you picking fights
      And me falling for it screaming that I'm right
      And you would hide away and find your peace of mind
      With some indie record that's much cooler than mine

      Ooh, you called me up again tonight
      But ooh, this time I'm telling you, I'm telling you

      We are never, ever, ever getting back together
      We are never, ever, ever getting back together
      You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me (talk to me)
      But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

      Ooh, yeah, ooh yeah, ooh yeah
      Oh oh oh

      I used to think that we were forever ever
      And I used to say, "Never say never..."
      Uggg... so he calls me up and he's like, "I still love you,"
      And I'm like... "I just... I mean this is exhausting, you know, like,
      We are never getting back together. Like, ever"

      No!

      We are never ever ever getting back together
      We are never ever ever getting back together
      You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me
      But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

      We, ooh, getting back together, ohhh,
      We, ooh, getting back together

      You go talk to your friends, talk to my friends, talk to me (talk to me)
      But we are never ever ever ever getting back together

      Last Christmas
      I gave you my heart
      But the very next day you gave it away.
      This year
      To save me from tears
      I'll give it to someone special.

      Once bitten and twice shy I keep my distance
      But you still catch my eye.
      Tell me, baby,
      Do you recognize me?
      Well, It's been a year,
      It doesn't surprise me (Merry Christmas)
      I wrapped it up and sent it
      With a note saying, "I love you,"
      I meant it Now I know what a fool I've been.
      But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again.

      A crowded room,
      Friends with tired eyes.
      I'm hiding from you
      And your soul of ice.
      My god I thought you were someone to rely on.
      Me?
      I guess I was a shoulder to cry on.
      A face on a lover with a fire in his heart.
      A man under cover but you tore me apart, ooh-hoo.
      Now I've found a real love, you'll never fool me again.

      Hands
      Oh, let me play for you The soul is dying from silence Don't be afraid of the noise It's the hands that are playing   This morning You forgot everything That was holding you together This day that is knocking on the window Is not yours   Things are silent around you Your bed and your table are silently Watching you Baubles hanging from the walls Just so that they would roughly Remind you In the shadows of those times with those times You are anticipating a fraud A treason   Oh, let me play for you The soul is dying from silence Don't be afraid of the noise It's the hands that are playing https://lyricstranslate.com/en/ruke-hands.html-0

    • Live: Chinese officials brief the media on novel coronavirus control   Asymptomatic man infects 14 medics with coronavirus. They are calling him "超级传播者" (Super-spreader), he took more than 15 days to start feeling symptoms, even though he was able to infect the doctors and nurses. In 12/25/2019 Zhao, 69, was admitted to the Union Hospital of Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan. He was suffering from pituitary tumors, he didn't have a very good cardiac function, coronary heart disease, sinus bradycardia and other illnesses. He stayed in the hospitals for 12 days for preoperative examination and evaluation (until January 6th). Before the brain surgery, he had no respiratory symptoms, normal body temperature, normal white blood cell and lymphocyte values. Preoperative x-rays showed he had some shadows on his left rib cage due to a long history of smoking. He was full of gas, good mental state, the doctors didn't have any reason to doubt he had an sort of viral pneumonia. December 30, 2019 the hospital received an internal notice about cases of pneumonia of unknown causes and January 7th, 2020 the hospital staff started wearing protection clothes. Zhao's surgery was done January 8th during the morning, it was done successfully and the patient was in stable conditions. January 9th the hospital was informed that the unknown cause of pneumonia was a virus called coronavirus. But Zhao didn't have any symptom whatsoever. January 11th Zhao suddenly got fever, but it was extremely difficult to determine the clinical reason since he made an cranial surgery, it could be changes in the body's stress, cerebral vascular irritation, changes in intracranial pressure... Meanwhile a neurosurgeon issued a lung CT scan, image display showed multiple lung opacities sheet with right pleural effusion, interstitial pneumonia. Significant pulmonary infection performance has emerged. Also, leukocytes increased significantly, elevated neutrophils, lymphocytes low, these changes are not typical virus infection. Doctor immediately reported the case and specialists did RNA tests confirming the patient got the virus and infected 14 people from the hospital staff. He was classified as "Super Spreader", that's when a person infects a large amount of people. The hospital doesn't know how many people were infected by the patient and the staff since hundreds of patients, medics and students go to that hospital daily and as observed the infected person might take 15 days to feel symptoms, but can infect others even before the symptoms appear.

    • If half your international workers are down with the flu (I'm "just" going off the flu symptoms here)... your company grinds to a halt. What worries me is that the world's increasingly-interdependent medical goods supply chains operate very leanly and with comparatively lower stockpiles than we used to. And any given country, the US for example, is less self-sufficient than ever before (in terms of established supply chains currently in use). So any major disruption in the production and global distribution of medical goods will be very readily felt by hospitals. And no one is prepared for that with adequate contingencies in place. Huge amounts of basic medical supplies are manufactured in Asia. China- masks, PPE, some fluid/ fluid bags, scapals/ instruments, wound dressings, IV machines/ mobile xray/ other machines; South America- Certain IV fluids, medications, some anti viral/ antibiotic meds; India- outer protection bag that some IV fluids are packed in If the supply chain were to be interupted- at any point in the world where medical equipment is produced- that is almost unfathomable. Germany gets 80% of it's pharmacies from foreign countries, most of it from China and India...... Outsourcing (globalizing) medicine is a disaster recipipe beyond pandemics, when you actively make yourself dependent.
    • China's CDC report says Coronavirus "has higher pandemic risk than SARS" | Can be transmitted without symptoms within incubation period [from renowned Harvard scientist Dr. Eric Ding] About 100,000 people could be infected with the new coronavirus around the world, experts have warned, as the UK government faced calls to reassure people that the NHS is ready to deal with any British cases within days. In spite of the rigorous containment measures China has taken, its ban on flights and the UK checks on travellers from China at Heathrow, experts say it is only a matter of time until there is a case in the UK, given the ease with which the new coronavirus is now believed to pass from one person to another - possibly transmitted by people with mild or even no symptoms at all. Secondly, there are reports from China of people who have infected others before they have experienced any symptoms.
    • Dr. Liang Wudong, a surgeon who was treating patients in Wuhan, become the first doctor to die from the new Coronavirus at Hubei Xinhua Hospital. A reminder that while everyone else is trying to avoid it, frontline medical staff are risking their lives to cure it and help others.
    • Rumour from Wuhan that at one hospital over 70 patients died in just one hour This post says someone working in a hospital in Wuhan said that all the doctors and nurses of two departments died within 3 hours, and that over 70 died within one hour in No. 5 hospital last night.     Date unknown. Rough translation of the chat (from SleepyKitto on the discord server): White: I just got through my comrade's office line W: He wailed and told me no one left from the two departments within 3 hours W: All dead W: Last night 70 something patients died in Wuhan Fifith Hospital within an hour Green: Were those doctors? W: DO NOT take this lightly W: Doctors, nurses W: Whole section department, no one left G: My god, where are the resrouces? G: (where is) the Government?
