I will never forget the first time I heard the Wind on the Water album....poetry in motion...sweet harmony...Thank you Graham Nash and David Crosby for all the years.
The message continues to ring true...intelligent men and women for some strange reason cannot see that there are so many other sources of natural gifts to the earth to colour our face..and, I wonder who was the first person to decide to do that...makeup can be a beautiful art form...the beautiful colour of the prickly pear can kiss our cheeks like a sunshiney day..
This video was captured on October 30, 2009..on a day that Amy, Aaron, and I made our way to Navarre and Pensacola Beach to grab the last ounce of sunshine and warmth as the cold windy hazy days of winter approach...
Wind on the Water is a 1975 album released by Crosby & Nash.
This was Crosby & Nash's second album as a duo; it was also their first for ABC Records, although, interestingly, cassette and 8-track versions of the album were distributed by their previous label, Atlantic Records. Wind on the Water surprised many listeners with its heavier rock numbers and its trenchant lyrics about aging and death. Crosby and Nash were in their thirties and approaching middle age, and events in personal lives, such as the death of Crosby's mother (which "Carry Me" was partially written about) also affected their songwriting.
Over the years you have been hunted
by the men who threw harpoons
And in the long run he will kill you
just to feed the pets we raise,
put the flowers in your vase
and make the lipstick for your face.
Over the years you swam the ocean
Following feelings of your own
Now you are washed up on the shoreline
I can see your body lie
It's a shame you have to die
to put the shadow on our eye
Maybe we'll go
Maybe we'll disappear
It's not that we don't know
It's just that we don't want to care.
Under the bridges
Over the foam
Wind on the water
Carry me home.
