15-04-25 Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion #2

We embody the spirit of motion.
We’re bodies in motion. We’re bodies in motion.

We dig down in the ocean. Swing up to the stars.
We own the moon and the earth. We’re masters of Mars.
We’re bodies in motion. We embody the spirit of motion.

Our ancestors cowered in caves
Afraid of the dark and the thunder.
Wrapped tip in black magic and rage
They were slaves to their hunger.
Now we fly across mountains in planes
We know aII about time and big numbers.
We’re bodies in motion.
We embody the spirit of motion.

Laurie Anderson

15-04-24 Weekly Photo Challenge – Motion

“I can calculate the motion of heavenly bodies, but not the madness of people.”

Isaac Newton

This week’s challenge is motion.

I went digging in the archives and came up with these two varieties of motion on the river.

7-7-13 Travel Theme: Motion (Clinton Corners Edition)

“So in America when the sun goes down and I sit on the old broken-down river pier watching the long, long skies over New Jersey and sense all that raw land that rolls in one unbelievable huge bulge over to the West Coast, and all that road going, and all the people dreaming in the immensity of it… and tonight the stars’ll be out, and don’t you know that God is Pooh Bear?”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road, Part 5

Ailsa’s theme this week is Motion.

We celebrated the 4th in the most traditionally US way possible. We hit the road to visit friends in Clinton Corners, NY and Northampton, MA. Northampton starred in yesterday’s post so it is only fair that Clinton Corners carries the honors today. Here are two views from our friend’s back lawn of my idea motion. The first is from the 4th and carries echoes of the old days (perhaps could have used it for my Nostalgic post in response to the Weekly Photo Challenge yesterday.) The second is from early morning on the 5th.
