Bob Seger - Against the Wind

Against the Wind
It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights
There in the darkness with the radio playing low, and
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved
Caught like a wildfire out of control
'Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove
And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh-so-tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then
Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin' against the wind
The years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home, and I
Guess I lost my way
There were oh-so-many roads
I was living to run and running to live
Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching
Searching for shelter again and again
Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind
Well those drifter's days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out
Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still runnin'
Against the wind
Against the wind
Against the wind
Still runnin' (against the wind)
I'm still runnin' against the wind
(Against the wind) I'm still runnin'
(Against the wind)
I'm still runnin' against the wind
(Against the wind) still runnin'
(Against the wind)runnin' against the wind, runnin' against the wind
(Against the wind) see the young man run
(Against the wind) watch the young man run
(Against the wind) watch the young man runnin'
(Against the wind) he'll be runnin' against the wind
(Against the wind) let the cowboys ride
(Against the wind) aah
(Against the wind) let the cowboys ride
(Against the wind) they'll be ridin' against the wind
(Against the wind) against the wind
(Against the wind) ridin' against the wind...

Van Morrison Domino

Saw this guy with my sister shortly before she passed away at the UBC War Memorial.  Here is one of his early hits and one of his latest.  Still one of my favorites.,

The Blue Bus

A thought on our neighbours to the south

And accidents happen. Combine a desperate time for a political party in a complex system, a dying medium and a rising algorithm, a few wealthy backers changing horses and a joke or two gone wrong — throw in a little international meddling, and we have the equivalent of somebody’s jackass nephew getting the corner suite in the office when they should have been fired years ago.
Since we are not truly a member of Foster Wallace’s Organization of North American Nations (O.N.A.N), to bring matters back home, we can note that Canada needn’t be seen as an insignificant player here. The highway overpass ladder to crawl back into a post-eclipse 2017 may yet prove to be found on our side of the Peace Bridge.

Waiting on a Bus.

Friday afternoon on my way home.  Horseshoe Bay, sometimes you feel a bit trapped till you get home and then realize how luck you are to live in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

I have not posted in quite sometime.  Why?  Not really sure, except I find myself questioning what I have to say has any relevance.  My insecurities raising their ugly head.  Going to make an honest effort to write more.    I am also going to try not to write about my neighbours to the south, while their journey should be their own it is not.  Enough said!

I have also been struggling to take and post photographs for much of the same period and for the same reasons.  Again going to try and do more.  I look at some of the incredible photographers posting today WOW!  Simply amazing.  I also look at people in general and because of the new technologies can and do take incredible and meaningful images.  If you captured the moment then you know what you win.

I had the incredible fortune to be a professional photographer,   I bought house's, cars, motorcycles, boats, and a whole lot of booze because I supposedly had the eye.  At that point a lot of nice people stood  and declared he has talent.  The reality my  eye, was somebody else's.   A large portion of what I shot was stolen or as my Dad liked to declare "rescued" from other people.  I am not sure that this isn't the norm.  It is incredibly hard to see things in a way that makes people think. 

Anyway more to follow.
