Today was gorgeous. Alex and I went down to PobleNou for a walk along the beach. We passed a very old cemetery, the entrance was guarded by Ents.

TreeBeard’s Song

In the willow-meads of Tasarinan I walked in the
Ah! the sight and the smell of the Spring in Nan-
And I said that was good.
I wandered in Summer in the elm-woods of Ossiriand.
Ah! the light and the music in the Summer by the
Seven Rivers of Ossir!
And I thought that was best.
To the beeches of Neldoreth I came in the Autumn.
Ah! the gold and the red and the sighing of leaves in the
Autumn in Taur-na-neldor!
It was more than my desire.
To the pine-trees upon the highland of Dorthonion I
climbed in the Winter.
Ah! the wind and the whiteness and the black branches
of Winter upon Orod-na-Thön!
My voice went up and sang in the sky.
And now all those lands lie under the wave,
And I walk in Ambarona, in Tauremorna, in Aldalómë,
In my own land, in the country of Fangorn,
Where the roots are long,
And the years lie thicker than the leaves
In Tauremornalómeë.

Well, no photo for Jan 3. I decided on this project on Jan 8 and unfortunately I did not take any photos on that day. What I did do was go to a movie with Alex and friends. We went to see Babel. It was quite interesting and if you want an in depth review, go to Alex’s blog.

I think this project is going to be very challenging and I really am interested in seeing the quality of each post at the end of the year.

Have a good one.

Today, I went to meet Alex for lunch. While waiting, I took this photo of the Torre Agbar in the distance.

Hazy Shade of Winter – Simon and Garfunkle

Time, time, time, see whats become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the salvation army band
Down by the riverside, its bound to be a better ride
Than what youve got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
Thats an easy thing to say, but if your hopes should pass away
Simply pretend
That you can build them again
Look around, the grass is high
The fields are ripe, its the springtime of my life

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Wont you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

But look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Look around, leaves are brown
Theres a patch of snow on the ground…

I’m going to take a new approach to writing this blog. I will post one photo per day and put a narrative with it. It will be short but easy reading.

This is the first:

Poem lyrics of There’s A Certain Slant Of Light by Emily Dickinson.

There’s a certain slant of light,
On winter afternoons
That oppresses, like the weight
Of cathedral tunes.

Heavenly hurt it gives us;
We can find no scar,
But internal difference
Where the meanings, are.

None may teach it anything,
‘T is the seal, despair,
An imperial affliction
Sent us of the air.

When it comes, the landscape listens,
Shadows hold their breath;
When it goes, ‘t is like the distance
On the look of death.
