I’m happy to be your fool :: song of the day

you were right

Keep Art Alive :: “Laura 1969” :: Photograph by Martin Pulaski

And I was busy finding answers while you just got on with real life,
always hoped you’d be my wife.
But, I never found the time, 
for the question to arrive;
I just disguised it in a song.

And songs,
are never quite the answer,
just a soundtrack to a life,
that is over all too soon.”

A found photograph of a girl who shares my name, back in a time briefly before I was born. I catch a glimpse and I start coloring in the gaps and lines, filling in the blanks of where she is off to, and who is running through her mind at the moment of snap and click. The photographer notes that she is on her way to work, but there is more below the surface.

There is always so much more below our surfaces.

    1. I so agree. I’m often puzzled why he isn’t, and often end up introducing (could be mistaken as pushing) his music off to people with a “please listen”. I feel like BDB received a bit of a buzz after the soundtrack to the Hornby film ‘About a Boy’ but it fizzled all too quickly.
