Gold on the Ceiling

The Black Keys


Quite a simple shot really, shot just before sunset, and tried to keep as much of the juicy bokeh in my frame.. :)


Something from Catch 22

"There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane, he had to fly them. If he flew them, he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to, he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle."


"It's a matter of duty," he [ex-P.F.C. Wintergreen] observed, "and we each have to perform our own. My duty is to keep digging these holes, and I've been doing such a good job of it that I've just been recommended for the Good Conduct Medal. Your duty is to screw around in cadet school and hope the war ends before you get out. The duty of the men in combat is to win the war, and I just wish they were doing their duty as well as I've been doing mine. It wouldn't be fair if I were to go overseas and do their job too, wouldn't it? "


Although unrelated to the photo..

These were some thoughts that have been lingering in my mind about duty, and duty with devotion..
