hanging from my mirror
rattling the teacup
and i wonder..."

At least time is only tapping on your forehead, it 'bashed' me over the head!

As popular as he was, he is still underrated as a lyricist.

No, keep it going! There are a lot of boomers out here.

I was listening to the radio yesterday and focused on the line "every form of refuge has its price" in another song from our generation. There was poetry in some of them.

Love the top photo.

Thank you for a touching treatment of the theme. I may be showing my baby boomer generational bias, but I doubt that 40 years from now people will post photos such as yours accented by lyrics to rap music.

But why push them out? I miss them. Saw them perform a couple of times in my teens/20s. I particularly remember on time at Forest Hills Tennis Stadium in Queens. There were lots of parents and kids out for such an nice show. But then there was this warm-up act people were just beginning to hear about, The Doors. Ooh, Jim Morrison did nasty things with the microphone stand.

Never have to apologize for P. Simon! Love all of these shots, BC. Be careful out prowling...some of the alleys have bad guys in them...
