Trying to make some sense of it all
But I can see it makes no sense at all
Is it cool to go to sleep on the floor?
Well, I don't think I can take anymore
Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you
Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan, Stealers Wheel, Stuck in the Middle with You

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
Henry David Thoreau

There's a quiet storm
And it never felt like this before
There's a quiet storm
That is you
Sade Adu‎ and Martin Ditcham, Sade, The Sweetest Taboo

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
Siddhartha Gautama

All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don't. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.
Robert Kennedy

Nature in all her glory is my uplift on life and so is my love of photography. sandi ♪ ♫

---If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.---

Logical, and true in both the literal and figurative way!

Another wonderful 'electrified' capture by you, John.
Has now the resemblance of an impressionist painting.

Your quotes and the music link has made this feast, in spite of the worrying times now, complete!

S+F. Thanks, 👍 !

Take care, stay safe and healthy!

Good picture, John. Your first lyric, Stuck in the Middle with You, takes me back to younger days.

I like what you have done with the original. I remember this result from some of your posts a few years ago. Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) was the spiritual leader whose wise teachings are followed by religious Buddhists even today.

My heart is sad
And I am lonely for the only one I love
When shall I see her oh no never
Till we meet in Heaven above

Oh, bury me beneath the willow
Under the weeping willow tree
So she will know where I am sleeping
And perhaps she'll weep for me.
Bury Me Beneath The Willow Tree

I love what you did with the tree and I love the song.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

I love willows, especially weeping willows. Excellent work, John.
