Drive by catch---22 Drive by catch---22
Sometimes, I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear.
And I can't help but ask myself how much I let the fear take the wheel and steer.

It's driven me before,
And it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal.

But lately I'm beginning to find that I
Should be the one behind the wheel.

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there,
With open arms and open eyes.

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there...

So if I decide to waiver my chance to be one of the hive,
Will I choose water over wine and hold my own and drive?

It's driven me before,
And it seems to be the way that everyone else gets around.
But lately I'm beginning to find that when I drive myself my light is found.

Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll be there
With open arms and open eyes, yeah...


[link] incubus - drive



(I've sat on this one for a while not quite knowing what to do with it. it was an amazing evening of chasing light and clouds along last dollar road around mt sneffels. the eye is so much better than any camera. I ended up having to use a 6 image fusion to get close to doing it justice. as a result everything except the road and fence has a softness to it... which I think is kind of cool.)

last dollar road, near ridgeway, co.

You surely did, do it justice, though I can only imagine how breathtakingly inspiring
and humbling it was with bare eyes and soul. Thank you for sharing your amazing work.

I agree about the softness, Dennis...it emphasizes the gentle sweeping curves - of road, rail fence, horizon and cloud structure.
A beautiful landscape that I keep coming back to. :sun:

CUDDLE BUG HUG BECAUSE I LOVE YOU
I've heard it said, and I´m sure it must be true, that receiving hugs is really very good for you. There´s a hug that says, hello, how are you? one especially to cheer you when you´re blue, A sad hug that says, I love you so, The really nice thing about hugs, I o admit, is the more you give away, the more you get, And this little cuddle bug has brought you agreat big hug from me, that´s long overdue!
