Unevolving

“The future is uncertain but the end is always near.”
― Jim Morrison

I have previously shared my observation that Time’s method of “healing all wounds” is most often through the obliteration of the wounded. Photographs are frequently intentional or unintentional markers and milestones of the obliteration of the wounds of the past. Nothing like Time can so effectively and completely take something that once had value and deep significance — like a home whose walls contained laughter and tears, birth and death, good times and bad, a family — and transform it into a nuisance, an eyesore, and a hindrance to progress. And what is progress but the infliction of new wounds and the ongoing assurance of job security for Time?

I hope you’ll dance.

Iron & Ivy

“We rest; A dream has power to poison sleep.
We rise; One wandering thought pollutes the day.
We feel, conceive, or reason; laugh or weep,
Embrace fond woe, or cast our cares away;
It is the same: for, be it joy or sorrow,
The path of departure still is free.
Man’s yesterday may ne’er be like his morrow;
Nought may endure but mutability!”
― Mary Shelley
, Frankenstein

I helped my mom and dad with a yard sale yesterday. Though certainly not what I would call a good time, it did provide an interesting opportunity for observation. As clothing, housewares and — frankly — pure junk exchanged ownership, I pondered the mutability of these objects. Going off to new homes with people as diverse as the objects themselves, these things — these man-made creations — have no awareness nor care for the change. Instantly, they adapt. How unlike us they are! — creations in which there is a keen awareness of change most often rooted in fear or denial. We are fortunate, so very blessed, to have been granted by our creator the liberty to make our own decisions regarding how we adapt to change. We have the power to decide whether change will be a catalyst for new growth or to inanimately remain the same — like a lifeless old spoon in a new drawer.

I greatly appreciate any and all shares of my posts, as they let others know about my pretty much unknown blog. 🙂 I’d probably fall out of my chair and hurt myself if I got even 50 unique visitors in a day. Therefore, I must suppose the bright side to being unknown thus far is that I’m also without injury…

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

So, I’ve been rather behind on keeping up with posts the last couple of weeks. There are major life events unfolding that are, frankly, my only priority right now. More on that to come in a future post.

Therefore, today’s post is my first ever (to my recollection) that doesn’t feature an original photograph. Instead it features a music video of Eva Cassidy, singing what I have believed for years is the best version of this song ever recorded. Eva lost her battle with cancer before soaring to the heights of fame she could have easily achieved.

I post this in honor and hope for those now battling cancer. Never stop fighting.

Eva Cassidy performing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, live at Blues Alley

If her voice doesn’t move you, you can’t be moved.
