Just after I took this photo a little gust of wind took all the seed heads off this beautiful dandelion They danced across the landscape. The dandelion head was a shell of its former self. A few minutes later the sun was gone, and the light all slowly seeped away . Today is a day for making sure I appreciate everything as it is RIGHT NOW, as you never know when a gust of wind might come and change it all.
SONG OF THE DAY The Rolling Stones -Paint it Black
I was just a bit too young to get into the Stones the first time. I heard 2 friends do this as an acoustic number at our club, and realised I had never heard the words before so I then arranged it for acapella. It was the top song in the choir poll for a while. Here is a version beautifully sung by Earthly Voices CLICK HERE in the summer of 2009 (LIVE!), you can really hear the words, and then listen to the original !
Wow, great pic! And so true about the now.
