Thank you guys… We are ok; just trying to keep our heads down 😦
I’m so glad to hear from you. I have missed your daily posts. I love this version of the song. The world has indeed changed in 2016. I hope your writing and learning to play the guitar is coming along well.
Haha, if only…. busy year, but much has changed in this part of the world.
Reblogged this on Rainy Day Writing and commented:
A powerful performance shared by a blogger new to me, that I think will become one I follow from now on. I concur. Pray for peace.
Hello. Thank you for that. My first visit to your blog and a very powerful experience. I feel like I’m choking back tears 24/7 with all that is happening in our world. I’ve never felt more deeply about that song than from the performance you shared. I am reblogging it. God Bless.
Thank you Ilona. So much I want to blog about life here, but just can’t do these days. Best wishes, Spike

Welcome back! So glad to read this post. Peace to you and your family, Uncle Spike.
This song is gorgeous and so appropriate.
Thank you Evelyne.
Relieved to see you alive and yet worried with Turkey but also the rest of the world. Including the USA. Take care.
we love this rendition of the sounds of silence. It is sung with such emotion.
He’s back! And safe!
So good to hear from you again Uncle Spike. I like the sense of continuity, the image of a sail boat being back on even keel when you show up in my inbox. Wishing you well and sending you care ❤
I’ve thought of you and your family so often. It was a gift to see this appear in my reader.
What a lovely surprise to find you here. We send our positive thoughts and hope for peaceful days.
Like a mole… never know where or when I’ll pop up.
YES! And Always and Always I pray for peace and for safety for you and your family.
Thank you dear Linda; and as some would say, “Back at ya!”
Thank you, Uncle Spike!
A great version of a favourite song, especially the end part. Our thoughts are with you and your fellow Muslims in these bad times.
Thank you Annette. Scary times indeed.
Good to hear from you again. M 🙂
Thank you sir.
Good to see you here, Spike! Wishing you and family peace. ∩(︶▽︶)∩
Thanks m’lady. That’s all we can wish and hope for.
Good to see you posting again. Looking forward to seeing more from you. (Suzanne)
Thank you Suzanne.
Always good to read a post from you, Uncle. And what a powerful rendition of “Sound Of Silence” – this version speaks to the scary politics in our countries! Wishing you and our family well
Thank you Linda.
Yes, it certainly seems appropriate!
We must always pray. Welcome back and prayers for the safety of you and your family as well.
Thank you dear Janet. Needed all round these days it seems.
What a great re-entry post, Spike. We’ve missed you. Praying for peace for your region, and all of us. 💘
Thank you. Not so easy these days, but this just seemed so apt.
I love that song 🙂
Now it’s haiku time …
In a world gone mad,
the power of sealed lips
speaks untold volumes.
Sending love and prayers to you and your family x

I missed your posts Spike. The world is indeed changing so fast.
I hate what is happening to your country and the region you live in, I pray for yours and your family’s safety.
Me too. Hope you’re having a great day.
Wonderful version of a beautiful song. And I agree with your words; Kia Kaha — stand strong.
