At Least We Left Before We Had to Go


The motion may be stopped, but there’s life in the stillness. New York City doesn’t seem to abide an object at rest, even in the frame of a picture. The far distant horizon down the canyon of the street is utterly open-ended, an endless series of opportunities for success and failure, for guts and glory, for past, present and future.

Farewell to the city and the love of my life

At least we left before we had to go.

Photo of the Day 01/05/10 - Writing on the Wall

The writing's on the wall brother
Your life is in your hands
It's up to you to see the writing's on the wall.

It looks you in the eye mister
It's time we stand up tall
Go see and understand the writing's on the wall.

Strange we hold on to things that have no grace
or power
While death holds on to us much more with every
passing hour
And all the time you thought it would last
Your life, your friends would always be
'Til they're drunk away or shot away or die away
from you.

There's nothing that you need sister
The Lord is in you all
Life is designed to see the writing's on the wall.

The music's in the air mothers
You may have heard it call
To you that you may see the writing's on the wall.

Be careful going home sister
Be watchful down that road
You've got a lot of love sister
More to grow.

The writing's on the wall brothers
Your life is in your hands
It's up to you to see the writing's on the wall
I hope that you may see the writing's on the wall.
-George Harrison
