So here's the thing...
"Who's to say I can't do everything?"
Like, taking a photo of this tree. I've been doing it for almost a year now. Sort of "a year in the life of a tree" project (catchy title, right?!?!?).
"Well, I can try, and as I roll along I begin to find
Things aren't always what they seem...
Like, I'm not allowed? At least that is what the security guy in his car with the flashing yellow light told me the other day. An octogenarian wearing a cute hat, who takes his job waaaaaay too seriously, I might add (with all due respect, of course).
"A Year in the Life - Winter"
"I want to turn the whole thing upside down
I'll find the the things they say just can't be found...
Like, I told him I've been taking a photo of this tree for months now. I told him we have a close and personal relationship. I told him the tree is perfectly fine with my presence. And...what about all those joggers running by? They are my age (mature-ish)...so they aren't running TOO fast. They should be very easy to nab, security man. There is a Starbucks right up the street, I'm sure they will be making a pit stop there if they are too speedy for you and your flashing yellow light (and cute hat).
"A Year in the Life - Fall Fog"
"I'll share this love I find with everyone
We'll sing and dance to Mother Nature's song...
Like...I knew better. I grew up with a parental unit JUST LIKE THIS (yeah dad, I know YOU know I'm talkin' 'bout YOU!). There's no arguing with stubborn. And speaking of stubborn, there is no better motivation than being told "You can't do that!". Afterall, I come by MY "stubborn" honestly.
I got back into my car, and in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger I told him...
"I'll be back."
"A Year in the Life - Spring (Boo-yah!)"
"Is this how it's supposed to be?"
-Upside Down (Jack Johnson)
And I did. Because that is just NOT how it's suppose to be. Mission accomplished.
Next week's song was suggested by one of our regular Song-ography participants....Molly at "The 365 Project"! I think there are lots of possibilities and directions your can take this song in interpretation and creativity. So thanks Molly for suggesting...
Five for Fighting
I owe an apology to those who I didn't get a chance to leave a comment last week when I visited your blogs. It doesn't happen often, but it did this past weekend. I was in the midst of family and travel. Time was short. Something had to give. I'm sorry it was some of you! Thanks for putting up with me. And thank you for continuing to participate here on Sunday's with Song-ography. I WILL be back (said in my best Arnold Schwarzenegger voice) AND commenting on ALL your blogs this week.
