songs about roving, rambling and plain hard luck & photography from the other side …

the sidewalk is a history book & a circus

The sidewalk is a history book / And a circus / Dangerous clowns / Balancing dreadful and wonderful perceptions / They have been handed / Day by day / Generations on down (Avishai Cohen, poem by Joni Mitchell)


dark nights, darker days

To fling my arms wide / In some place of the sun / To whirl and to dance / Till the white day is done / Then rest at cool evening / Beneath a tall tree / While night comes on gently / Dark like me- / That is my dream! (Avishai Cohen, poem by Langston Hughes)


long is the struggle, hard the fight

And now, now everyone got nervous / Because everyone was hungry too / And everyone was wondering / What was the next thing he would do / And the, the preacher, he kept preaching / He said, “Now I’ll remind you if I may / You all better pay attention / And I might decide to preach all day” / And now everyone was getting so hungry / That the old ones started feeling ill / And the weak ones started passing out / And the young ones, they could not sit still (Lyle Lovett)
