Re: Love vs Career Love

Liss of Daydream Lily blog recently put up a post entitled Love vs Career Love. There were lots of wonderful comments, but here are my favourite three:

Toni Brockliss
Love. You can love your career, but it doesn't love you back.

Miss English Rose
In work you are generally quite often replacable, but if someone loves you and wants you for the rest of their life then you are irreplacable. Who is going to make you cups of tea and snuggle with you on the sofa when your retired and have no one around?

Jess
Love. Jobs and careers come and go. I want someone to sit and hold hands with when I'm old. A career can't hold my hand, or hug me, or listen to my ramblings. No job is worth giving up love.

Sleepthief - Eurydice

Eurydice is the beautiful opening track on Sleepthief's The Dawnseeker album, featuring the vocals of Jody Quine.

It's based on the Greek myth that basically revolves around Eurydice dying, and her husband, Orpheus, travelling to the Underworld and playing such sad and mournful music that he was allowed to take Eurydice back to the land of the living.
Read more on Wikipedia.


“I've lost you my lovely
To the depths of an ocean
My blind faith,
I follow you with my hope and devotion

I'll sing for your freedom
I'm lost to release you
No heaven waits for us my sweet
I'll follow your demise to hell and beyond”
