The Thing Is

Flying away.

“Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It’s not always going to be this grey
All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away”  — George Harrison

I think that’s all we need to know. In one song.

It was the last song George Harrison ever played live. He was on a British talk show, along with Ravi Shankar. The host pretty much begged him to play. George couldn’t think of song that he remembered the words to, then he started strumming. He’s been gone a long time and I still miss him.

The picture. Look up, look down, look all around. Actually I flipped this picture. The plane was pointed in the other direction. I’d rather have it look like it was ascending than looking like it was headed into the ground.

It’s a positive picture.
