Up, up and away!!

Up, up & away! by Jo Bradford, 2010

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The soundtrack to my early twenties were the hauntingly beautiful melodies of the melancholic Englishman, Nick Drake.  His music still stops me in my tracks for a moment of quiet contemplation and his lyrics often run through my mind when I am working creatively.  

The song "I was made to Love Magic" has some beautiful lines in it...

I was born to use my eyes
Dream with the sun and the skies
To float away in a lifelong song
In the mist where melody flies.
I was made to love magic...
I was born to sail away
Into a land of forever

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Happy Friday folks, I hope your weekend is full of sunshine and smiles!!

I can hear him singing. So sad, so beautiful, so much longing. Your picture is lovely. This early morning in moonlight I was out on a dune beach . Then sunrise lit up the tops of clouds. I wanted the marram as blond hair backlit by rising sun. Blue sky again today.
