Slightly more low brow a place than Rio, and no, its not that Mike Nesmith video, though I do love it, all the same. Its just that I used the other obvious title on the other blog, so wanted a different title here, in case they get comments, or likes (ha ha), so that I know which version it relates to.
I have (online at least) known Betsy for a little while now, though in truth, beyond her writings, our messages to each other online, and the odd blog comments, I really dont know her that well. No, never met her, probably never will, but all the same…
To be fair, she asked my approval before posting this
by sending me a section of it, and my only objection was the name of ‘my’ character. So, Seraphina became Maria, and after last night, the rest is history. And no, most of what she writes about my character are stuff she’s gauged from our ‘mail’ to each other, and what I write on the forums, both in words, and reviews. But to say she’s hit the mark, is putting it mildly!
Before you ask, no, I doubt we will ever actually meet. She probably enjoys her privacy way too much, and besides, there is always the risk of letdown when you meet someone you think you know, but probably dont. Its possible, we are both in the North of England, but thats probably as close as it will ever get, online.
Yes, she’s got me to a tee, and I suspect she bears a resemblance to Rhia, in attitude at least, from the little that I know about her. Though I might add, I have no evidence that Betsy can actually control minds lol!
So yes, even though in all reality, I will never meet Betsy, she will always have a special place in my heart, all the same.
OK, the video. I used the Fugees version over on the other blog, so lets use the original artist for this one, Roberta Flack.
