"...speak louder than the words before you
and give them meaning no one else has found.
The role we play is so important
we are the voices of the underground."

"Speak Louder Than the Words Before You"
Prague, Czech Republic
Some of you might have seen this photo on my Instagram feed during my trip in December. It's one of my favorite shots from Prague. I loved this little bit of English graffiti in the heart of Prague. Really stuck out amidst the foreign (to moi!) Slavic everywhere else. I took some photos with my DSLR, and decided to grab one with the IPhone to post on Instagram. The passersby were obviously oblivious to my photo attempt, and they might have been obviously oblivious to the message too. I don't know. But I liked it. The shot resonated so much more with the pedestrians, than just the message itself. Sometimes one must pay attention so as not to be oblivious to a message. To speak louder than the words before you, you must first notice them, in order to give them your own special meaning.
Life IS good. Hopefully those who are oblivious to that truth, are far outnumbered by those who know this to be obvious. This new year, my wish is that everyone finds their own special and unique meaning.
Next Tuesday's Song-ography suggestion is a TRUE classic. Can't wait to see how you bend it, shape it, anyway you want it...
