17-01-07 The More It Snows

The more it snows (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
The more it goes (Tiddely pom),
On snowing. And nobody knows (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
How cold my toes (Tiddely pom),
Are growing.

12-11-16 NYC First Snow

It started snowing late this afternoon while I was at a meeting in midtown.  The meeting was on the east side. This meant that I had to walk cross town through Rockefeller Center where there where only 8 gazillion people out to see the tree.

Very pretty evening though…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

“…takes a cigarette/puts it in your mouth” – Bowie

nope wrong song…

So you live day to day,
And you dream about tomorrow, oh
And the hours go by like minutes
And the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something
To make them go away
I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin’ what I left behind
And from worrying ’bout this wasted time

Frey/Henley/Norman

The challenge is time

My answer?

Well, an answer, I believe, is found in this snowy portrait…

16-01-06 The Suburbs

In the suburbs I
I learned to drive
And you told me we’d never survive
Grab your mother’s keys we’re leavin’

Kids wanna be so hard
But in my dreams we’re still screamin’ and runnin’ through the yard
And all of the walls that they built in the seventies finally fall
And all of the houses they build in the seventies finally fall
Meant nothin’ at all
Meant nothin’ at all
It meant nothin

Arcade Fire

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.
