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

down the wrong road both ways

© Norden, Norddeich 2010 by Fritsch

If I could follow my whole life’s track / I’d still be here at the crossroads, dear / My broken heart has never left / Half the time it took half my life / To have half a right to say / Nothing ever makes it home / That takes the blue star highway / Nothing ever makes it home / That takes the blue star highway (Magnolia Electric Co.)

And now for something completely different: A very merry Christmas (John Lennon)

    Wünsche dir und deinen Angehörigen schöne Weihnachten,

    Excellent perspective and encouragement to move the road straight ahead, into the unknown, in search of adventure.

    A road such as this is for following! Nicely done as always.

    This reminds me of where I lived when I was a boy with flat, mostly treeless fields, and branching off the main road were gravel roads that went on and on. Maybe it’s the source of the saying „you can’t get there from here.“ Sometimes, it feels like that, doesn’t it? Nicely done, Sir.

    Wonderful composition Fritsch. The road pulls you in like a funnel. Looks like each sign is waiting its turn to head down the road. Have a Happy New Year!

    Here we are. At the crossroads. And the point of view makes us uncomfortable: we have to choose. Knowing that each way has its ups and downs. And a final cut…
    Great one, Fritsch!
