Through the window closed
Daylight comes in now
Dies the desired shadow
In an elusive hope

Oh, can't it be
The voices calling me
They get lost and out of time
I should've seen it glow
But everybody knows
That a broken heart is blind

If God persists, persists in saying yes
I guess we'll have, we'll have to test ourselves
Maybe the Summer, will come and clear our minds
And find the impulse, to love the sunshine

I've been in every black hole
At the altar of the dark star
My body's now a begging bowl
That's begging to get back, begging to get back
To my heart
To the rhythm of my soul
To the rhythm of my unconsciousness
To the rhythm that yearns
To be released from control

I was right there at the top of the bottom
On the edge of the known universe where I wanted to be
I had driven to the scene of the accident
And I sat there waiting for me

Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say, I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

We crept into Cabo San Lucas at dawn late in our cruise through the Panama Canal. Luckily, our cabin and balcony were on the side to watch the play of early morning light along the crags which form Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Say oh, got this feeling that you can't fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life
A good, good life

Don't care what people say
Just follow your own way
Don't give up and use the chance
To return to innocence

We've come too far
To give up who we are
So let's raise the bar
And our cups to the stars

The light wasn't great but I found the outlook very relaxing.

I wanna dance by water 'neath the Mexican sky
Drink some Margaritas by a string of blue lights
Listen to the Mariachi play at midnight
Are you with me, are you with me?

As happens, I was on a shoot for something else, and noticed the Promenade lights on the water surface.

In summer I can taste the salt in the sea
There's a kite blowing out of control on a breeze
I wonder what's gonna happen to you
You wonder what has happened to me

A familiar sight along the Queen Elizabeth Way between Hamilton and St. Catharines, Ontario. After passing this for many years I finally stopped today - it won't be the last time.

Just happened to be chatting online with a few members of this group at 2am this morning, and I suddenly had this rash urge to set my alarm for 'stupid o'clock'

So just a little over two hours later, found me ankle deep in the freezing cold North Sea (and yes my boots leak), but results like this make the sacrifices all worth it
:-)

The camera has been gathering dust for far too long, I'm heading back to photoland

Sir William Hillary moved to the Isle of Man in 1808 and began to know the dangerous waters of the Irish Sea which surrounded Douglas Bay. In around 1824 he conceived the concept of a life boat service manned by a trained crew. The idea was new, but soon prompted the creation of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

It was not till Hillary took part in a rescue for a Steam Packet vessel and was washed overboard that he realised the coast was too far to swim to, yet a place was needed for sailors to wait for rescue. Soon after an idea Sir William Hillary had became a reality. Designed by John Welch the Tower of Refuge, as it came to be called, was completed in 1832. Situated upon Conister Rock in Douglas Bay a granite haven in the form of a small castle took its place as a lifesaver for sailors. Built at a cost of which almost half was paid by Hillary himself and the other by subscription. The tower was kept well stocked with fresh water and bread, ready to offered shelter from the weather and sea.

I need your love
I need your time
When everything's wrong
You make it right
I feel so high
I come alive
I need to be free with you tonight
I need your love

Taken in Atlantic City New Jersey, USA in 2001.
Not the best quality so I added some texturizing.
Really liked the colours of green shoe, yellow garbage can and the blue ocean.

What's the best thing to do on a beautiful day? Grab the camera, a friend and take a drive!

Taken from a sandbar on Woman Key, about six miles off the coast of Key West. The water was so smooth, the sky and water just blended together in the distance and made it impossible to see where one ended and the other began.

Often woke at or before dawn on Panama Canal cruise. This morning, a full day at sea, was blessed with a double rainbow arch in the ocean cumulus clouds from the rising sun.

This was such a fun find as I went down to my usual pier for the sunset, wondering how I could make it more interesting. Low and behold a sand artist had been there, meking designs in the sand that day. I felt so blessed. He left his hashtag #FRPART. I looked him up. He apparently usually does this in Santa Cruz. He wrote me back and said that his father's ashes had been scattered at Pismo Beach and that he stops by once in awhile to pay homage to him. I thought it was very special.

As I stood there watching the sunset, I was reminded that env though life can be full of dark clouds, there are still beautiful moments to see and treasure.
