The Light Ahead

Let the light shine, let me follow the path that I think is the right one,
Cast you aside like I thought you deserved, only I didn’t know you.

Hold on, hold on.

Let me follow my light, let me journey along the path that I know is wrong,
Let me make my mistakes, let them kick me in the face.

Hold on, hold on.

Your body is cold but still I’m warming up, and now I know this is wrong,
But hold on, hold on.

Let me kiss you one last time, let my lips linger on yours.

Hold on, hold on.

Behind the Wheel

It is hard to articulate the freedom that I feel behind the wheel.  As I join the flow of traffic I am you and you are I, only our cars distinguish us amongst the crowd and even then we are both the same.  Yet driving is also death incarnate – the flurry of life in flux and of life taken at a moment’s notice.  I fear gross trauma, the savaged limb and the non-beating heart.

Yet, even with this fear encapsulated within my bosom, I still love the freedom that the four wheels bring, even as we are constrained by the tarmac and by the signs.  It is a chance to listen again to a favourite CD in its entirety, to revisit a band’s discography.  It is the time to make me fall in love once more.  It is the time to get to know my co-workers that much more, to have unfettered conversations not sanctioned by the workplace.  It is the time to cruise the dark streets alone on my midnight journey home, heading back to the family dwelling.  It is the time to think of the luxury of a life half-lived.

Abstract Photo #1

Not a photograph I intended to take, but a happy mistake discovered once the film was processed.  I think I see a person walking away into a land of shadow, where nothing, and no decision, is clear cut.  Shot with the Pentax s1a camera and black and white kodak film.
