Welcome to another Sunday, and a new Song-ography link-up. This past week I was determined to not root thru my archives (altho perfectly legal here, whew!), but to take some new photos with the song title "Lean on Me" in mind. I actually had quite a few I felt "okay" in using. But then...I rounded a corner in Cape May, New Jersey and found the shot that had apparently been waiting for me all the while. Dontcha just love rounding those type of corners? Of course, the next corner I rounded I got side-swiped by an eighty-year old lady who apparently thought she could fit between me and the 3 inches of spare space separating me from a wall...and that included her cane too. Come to think of it, I could have probably used her and her cane for "Lean on Me" too, but her son had me side-tracked with his apologies for his mom. Gotta love the fact that you are never too old to be embarrassed by your parents. So many years left of red faces for my Things, gives me something to shoot for. Have to admit, she was kinda cute in her single-minded focus and determination to get where she wanted in a post-haste, take no prisoners, type of way. Gotta admire that 'tude, regardless of age OR walking devices.

Can I tell you all how thrilled I am with all of your positive feedback regarding this link up? Seriously, the Better Half is going to have to soon burst my bubble so my head fits back in thru our front door. Being the mom of three Things, it just isn't that often that I get a resounding thumbs-up on much. So mucho thanks. If you have any suggestions for song titles you would like to see included in the future, please shoot me an email (email@example.com) or post it in the comments. And speaking of suggestions, I am going to take one from Adrienne who blogs at My Memory Art for suggesting the song title I have chosen for next week's prompt. So make sure to stop by her blog and give her a big pat on the back for challenging you (I'm actually kinda lovin' this one)..."Both Sides Now"
Gotta quote a line from one of my favorite movies, Love Actually, regarding Joni Mitchell...
Karen: "I love her. And true love lasts a lifetime. Joni Mitchell is the woman who taught your cold English wife how to feel"
Sorry, not gonna give the English total monopoly on how Joni can tap into your emotions. So take a listen, the lyrics offer quite a diverse range of possibilities for interpretation. And I'll see you back next Sunday for your creations.
But for now? Let's link up your interpretations for this week's "Lean on Me" by Bill Withers. And thanks for joining in!
P.S. I want to give a shout out to Thing #2 who joined the blogging world last week. Since she told me that her fiance' was making fun of her while she photographed their dinner tonight, I'd say she fits right in! She informed me that she IS linking up this week to Song-ography. Altho, being the twenty-something year old that she is, she isn't sitting home waiting to post at midnight...she has a social life. Yeah, enjoy it while you can honey. But I'm going to give her a plug here, and encourage you to please stop by Please Kiss the Cook and take a gander. I think she's starting to get embarrassed that her mom is the only one who comments up to this point. Honestly, you'd THINK she'd be use that after 26 years!
