I took a drive today, thought about you
I thought about a friend who passed
And how much we just went through
I saw the sunshine off the hood of a Cadillac
I thought about some things I'd say
And some that I would take back
I thought about how fortunate I feel to be alive
And if you're scared of the future tonight,
We'll just take it each hour one at a time
It's a pretty good night for drive
So dry up those eyes, dry up those eyes
Because the radio will still play loud
Songs that we heard as our guards came down
Like in the summertime when we first met
I'll never forget, and don't you forget
These nights are still ours
(The Gaslight Anthem - Boomboxes And Dictionaries)
Mystery creates wonder and wonder is
the basis of man's desire to understand.
Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.
(Antoine de Saint-Exupéry)
I hope to be able to post new pictures soon. My two jobs are keeping me busy, but until I've got new photos that I want to share with you, I don't want to bore you with old pictures.
Let me share some blogs, photostreams and websites I discovered last week...
On Flickr: #1; #2. The photography of Roger Weber. The cucumber cocktail. The amazing murals by Herakut. Mexican Fireworks, which is one of the best collections of photographs I've ever seen on the internet. Beautiful photographs of Canada's National Parks. A beautifully captured moment. John Bauer's illustrations. Great pictures of the Dutch Wadden Islands. A series of pictures of the moon. "Criminal Minds" has some remarkable quotes. The 99 best things about summer. An interesting article on Bruce Springsteen. Last but not least, three awesome motorcycles: BMW R75/5, Honda CB350 (#1; #2), Kawasaki Z750.
