I'm still standing after all this time*

Just like this lone snowman in Central Park, New York.
* Borrowed from Sir Elton (1983). Clarifying in case another artist has used those words since then.

Oh I love this picture! You should use for your Christmas cards next year (oh no, I just jumped forward twelve months!!)

I love this image--filled with nostalgia but still artful. The deep grays in the far distance are just magic.

But I don't know the line from Sir EJ.

JXG: You don't remember that one? "I'm still standing
Looking like a true survivor, feeling like a little kid"

Man, I LOVED that song! Reminds me of riding my bicycle in Summer with my portable transistor radio (silver, of course) in the bike basket and belting out this song.

Oh now in the context of a bicycle and a silver radio (and a few additional lyrics), the tune comes to my head. In my head though it doesn't sound like Sir EJ--but I never know who is singing anyway. It could be George Michael for all I know.

I thought it was on the sound track of Summer Lovers but that's Take Me Down To The Ocean.

There's a tension in this photo I just can't put my finger on. Like something mean and nasty is gonna come out of the woods and hurt him.

Perfect title for this picture!

And oh I remember that song and I can see you riding your bike , singing at the top of your lungs and being happy!

I feel victory when I look at this photo. And how sometimes we must stand alone:)

I can't wait for you next post!

You always have such great command over contrast in all it's forms, Alice Olive. This photo is a prime example of your skill. You have a great eye.
