Paul McCartney's tweets!

Maybe it's the effect of being newly married, but has anyone else noticed that Paul McCartney's tweets are becoming more and more esoteric recently?
As days and nights would pass me by i'd tell myself that i was waiting for a sign

What good is the moonlight, the silvery moonlight that shines above?

Laugh a little, cry a little

Please don't let it be marketing for a new album or am I just being suspicious and cynical?  It would be good to think that there are some people left who think truly poetic thoughts with no ulterior motive.  Don't mess with my dreams Paul.  

The Beatles first three albums, Please Please Me, With the Beatles and A Hard Day's Night provided the backdrop to my adolescence.   Their story is inspiring, especially to a Northern girl hailing from about 15 miles up the road.  I once saw them in Blackburn and could have sworn that George Harrison winked at me - as would 2000 other screaming girls!  There was no music to be heard on that occasion as no matter how much the volume was turned up the audience still drowned them out.

Being a longtime veggie, in the intervening years I've been more interested in  the sustained efforts of  the McCartney family (led byPaul's photographer wife Linda) to banish vegetarianism's food freak label and make it more mainstream.  
So after all these years you've grabbed my interest again Paul - looking forward to the next tweet!  Btw, do you knit?

  1. definitely beats the dross that usually bobs up on my twitter feed. Less esoteric and more refreshing for me!
