17-01-09 Just A Dream

That’s me in the corner
That’s me in the spotlight
Losing my religion
Trying to keep up with you
And I don’t know if I can do it
Oh no, I’ve said too much
I haven’t said enough

I thought that I heard you laughing
I thought that I heard you sing
I think I thought I saw you try

But that was just a dream
Try, cry, why try
That was just a dream
Just a dream
Just a dream, dream

Bill Berry, Peter Buck, Mike Mills, and Michael Stipe

15-01-24 Weekly Photo Challenge – Express Yourself Take 2

“What a gulf between impression and expression! That’s our ironic fate—to have Shakespearean feelings and (unless by some billion-to-one chance we happen to be Shakespeare) to talk about them like automobile salesmen or teen-agers or college professors. We practice alchemy in reverse—touch gold and it turns into lead; touch the pure lyrics of experience, and they turn into the verbal equivalents of tripe and hogwash.”

Aldous Huxley

The weekly challenge is Express Yourself.

Since I believe that is what I do with this blog everyday, I am choosing to highlight others I have met in my travels over the years who expressed themselves.

My first attempt is here.

If you visited Provincetown anytime in the summers between about 2000 and 2011 you may have met Ella. Damn but she could sing.
