“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.”
-Walt Whitman -The Leaves Of Grass

Chasing Pavements

I remember the first time I heard Chasing Pavements by was before she became so popular.    I connected with the lyrics, her voice, the time, and place right away...I haven't listened to it in a long time   but this picture I took last summer reminds me of her voice, the time, the place, the lyrics...

I had to lay down in the road to get this view.  For a brief moment out of my life I took an exciting and risky chance in order to get a clearer perspective of what was mapped out in front of me.  I remember enjoying the heat of the road and the somewhat unfamiliar texture of the cement while intentionally swiping my finger across the yellow stripe...  I love how you can see the two vanishing points where the road forks left and right.  I think a road picture is a good metaphor for life.  So, there you have it!  What do you think?

Woah~ highly enhanced photo!

Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?
Or would it be a waste even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there?
Should I give up or should I just keep chasing pavements
Even if it leads nowhere?-  Adele

Bendito Dios por encontrarnos en el camino
Y de quitarme esta soledad de mi destino.-  Bendito tu luz (Mana)

Soy como el agua del río
y por el camino me dejo llevar
porque aprendí que la vida
por todo lo malo algo bueno te da
Quiero que me mires a los ojos
y que no preguntes nada mas
quiero que esta noche sueltes toda esa alegría
que ya no puedes guardar
