16-05-05 Going Up The Country

I bring the youth of America home from sophomore year of college tomorrow.

I put this playlist together to cover the three hour drive to the school…
They get to choose the ride home list.

Whipping Post (Live) The Allman Brothers Band
Cowgirl In the Sand (Live)Neil Young
Desolation Row Bob Dylan
Sultans of Swing (Live) Dire Straits
Matty Groves Fairport Convention
Madame George Van Morrison
Ball and Chain (Live) Big Brother & The Holding Company
Mortal City Dar Williams
Three O’Clock Blues B.B. King & Eric Clapton
Amen Leonard Cohen
Sugaree (Live) Grateful Dead
Layla Derek & The Dominos
When the Music’s Over The Doors
Blackstar David Bowie
Purple Rain Prince & The Revolution
New York City Serenade Bruce Springsteen

These particular versions (many live) actually give me 30 minutes extra in case of traffic jams.

Sunrise over Queens, New York.

15-03-09 Weekly Photo Challenge – Orange Again

The challenge this week is orange. Now, of course, back when life was not as crazy as it is now, orange stood for the second highest terrorist alert warning color.  Ah, those were the days, eh?

But…

“Those were the days my friend
We thought they’d never end
We’d sing and dance forever and a day
We’d live the life we choose
We’d fight and never lose”

Gene Raskin

My first orange go is here.

But today I thought I would go with something a bit more traditional…

“Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as we gaze”

Sheldon Harnick

The Accidental Cootchie Mama is less than 15 miles from completing her 444 mile walk of The Natchez Trace. If I haven’t mentioned it before… 🙂 … you should read her book: To Live Forever An After Life Journey of Meriwether Lewis.
