JoLoLog - Crossing Day

Crossing Day

Crossing Day - A prayer

When Crossing Day comes, let it be a shiny day
Let it be full of sun rays warmth, of coziness touching my eyes
Let it be a mountains day, a day of winding trails beneath my feet
A day of light breeze caressing my face before it glides to unknown lands

Let me be in the presence of love, hugged by trust and caring souls
Let me be fulfilled with all that I can be, way beyond any barriers
Let there be silence, let there be joyfulness, let there be light of wisdom
Let me begin again, pure, inquisitive, trusting, soaring

But most of all, when Crossing Day comes, let me know where the bridge starts
and that it's time... to cross.

Ramble on by Guy Matteazzi
(Explored)
Where did our love go dear?
Where did our love go?
Just yesterday promises were made…never to be broken.
Didn’t we walk hand in hand pledging eternal love to one another?

Oh…those were the days…weren’t they my love?
Our hearts were as green as the blossoming buds upon the vine.
Full of promise...
Full of life…
Full of hope…
But most of all…full of love.
Nothing stood in our way…but a blank canvass called life.
It was for you and I to paint in every shade and hue.

But somewhere…somehow…everything went wrong.
Was it too much love…or too little?
Too much effort? Or not worth the time?
Do not beat yourself up honey.
I have myself to blame as much as you.
Besides…I honestly lost track and gave up…long ago.

I now look at that canvass of possibilities…and only see grey.
We were fools honey. We were fools.
We could have used all the rich pastels of colour that we were given…
But instead…we only painted in black and white.

Mine. Yours. His. Hers.
Never ours.
Just mine…and yours.
Me…or you.
Never me AND you.
Never…us.

So…the seasons have passed us by…
We raced from spring to summer and now autumn.
All that remains ahead are the harsh winds of winter.
Meanwhile…like the buds that once held so much life and promise…
Our love has fallen and withered…like the dying leaves upon the ground.
But unlike our love…at least these leaves have colour.

I do not wish to watch the last vestiges of our love blown away.
What happened is in the past.
It’s not your fault…
It’s not mine.
I guess…it’s ours.
Finally my love…something we truly shared…blame.
It’s a shame it’s too late…
For now…it’s time for you and I…to let go…
It is time…for you and I…to ramble on.

zneppi - Proud Men [Explored]

Proud Men [Explored]

View On Black

Forever young


...
We met this old Man at Vista do Rei, where one can view down to Sete Cidades. It was very foggy and we couldn't see anything as suddenly he appeared out of the Fog. I speak only a few Words Portuguese, but we had a very nice Talk with Hands and Feets. He allowed my Son to sit on his Mule and first I wouldn't take a Photo because I didn't want to affront this Man as a Tourist Attraction. But he saw my Camera and said something like: "Take a Photo, your Son sits on the Mule." So I took this wonderful Shot - I tried to do some Post-Processing, but then I only corrected the Lighting a bit. It was best out of the Camera.
When we went away from there I shaked his Hand, which was very rough from lifetime Working - his Hands strongly reminded me to those of my Grandmother.
We met this Man at another Day down in Sete Cidades. He remembered us and it was sunny and I asked him, if he wants a Beer. He gladly accepted my Invitation and so he was sitting in the Sun and enjoyed his good Azorean Beer named "Especial".

It was a great Pleasure for us, to meet this proud Man - I wish all the best for you, old Man, and many, many Years in good Health...

The Building which you can see in the Background is a Ghost-House. In the 80's or 90's a Hotel was built here in the Middle of the Nature - no other Buidling is around here. The Hotel is very big, but too less People came there and the Hotel closed after a few Years. Now it rots down slowly...

Explored - Thank you so much all!

LULU'S BORDELLO MUSEUM & GIFT SHOP Goldfield Ghost Town

We offer guided tours into the history of the women of the 1800's Telling of personal experiences that women of the 1800's had as they traveled into the western territory and settled in the western boom towns.
We prefer you to refer to the girls as "floozies" as it sounds less harsh as some of the terms out there, after all they are just tour guides.
We encourage families to bring their children with them for all tours are tailored for each group. We give children an idea of what it was like to be a child in the 1800’s as well as go on a treasure hunt to find a 100 year old bathtub, 100 year old sink and 100 year old potty. There are opportunities for the children to touch some of old antiques.
Lu Lu’s Bordello Museum & Gift shop is located at the top of the hill, up the spiral staircase, in the green Victorian building, directly above “Ladies Love Outlaws”, and across from the Mammoth Saloon. It is a paying guided tour for the entire family to enjoy.
