Remember this one? "We all live in a yellow submarine ... yellow submarine ... yellow submarine..." I loved this song as well ... and again, from about the same time period ... My mom took us to the movie ... again, i was a preteen ... i remember it well because we had drive all the to Kits, which was the side of town that in 1968 was the mecca for all things counterculture and hippie and the birthplace of Greenpeace ... there were not many kids in the audience, which i found really strange for a 'cartoon' movie ... instead the audience was filled with men with long hair and colourful clothes and women in long skirts and even longer hair and the smoke in the air was something other than just your regular cigarette ... It was an interesting time and an interesting memory ... When my own child was young, singing this song used to be part of our bedtime routine ...
what? are you kidding??? in the air ... a blimp ... looking a little like a yellow submarine ... is that not the weirdest coincidence?
"Look at the stars, look how they shine for you" ... I love this song by Coldplay. very straightforward, no hidden meanings ... just a beautiful song about being devoted to someone to the extent that you would do what you could for them ... write them a song ...
Yellow ... the third chakra, the solar plexus ... and mine is so out of balance and has been for a while now, this is something i really need to focus on more intently.
and all of those campers can now cross the street ... safely ... who says there is nothing to photograph in a parking lot???
Well this has been a weird post ... wandering from music to health to contemplation on a colour ... sometimes these posts just happen ... and then they move to where i least expected them to go ...clearly i am not a big planner ... no topics neatly researched and set aside ... just another sprawling ramble ... and as I arrive home to finish this post, i think that there are so many small serendipitous things that happen in a day. I was thinking I would never find pictures to go with this post ... I leave, grab my point & shoot as I head out the door to pick up DD from work as a camp counselor ... thinking that I won't find much yellow in a parking lot ... lo and behold ... all of these pictures were right there ... in that parking lot ... just minutes after i wrote most of this post ...
For those that visited last week and answered the eXam ... kudos! you brave souls you ... your answers hanging out for all to see ... thanks for playing ... there was no answer key ... there were no scores ... it was all just some stuff i made up for fun ... fluff and nonsense as it is!
one more thing ... my pc is in the throws of death ... it shuts down mid-sentence ... and its about 9 years old, which is like 2billion in techno years ... and i can't decide ... mac or windows??? let me know what you use and if you like it!
