4-21-14 Travel Theme: Round (Memorial Edition – Circle Game 2)

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cartwheels turn to car wheels thru the town
And they tell him take your time it won’t be long now
Till you drag your feet to slow the circles down

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There’ll be new dreams maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look
Behind from where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Joni Mitchell

Last night’s Mad Men leads me to finish my Circle Game rumination. Abigail’s last six weeks of high school also push me here…

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is round. My first go round is here.

Yesterday, I went down to South Ferry and the Battery to see the mouth of the Hudson. Just off the entrance to the harbor are three monuments (last weeks photo challenge – here). The first is The American Merchant Marines Memorial.  The second is the Korean War Veteran’s Memorial. The third is “The Sphere”.  It is a sculpture by Fritz Koenig that installed in 1971 in the plaza of the World Trade Center between the towers. It was designed to symbolize world peace through world trade. During the attacks of 9/11 it was damaged, but it was relocated – unrepaired -to Battery Park on March 11, 2002.
