If our eyes should meet then so-be-it*

No need to trouble a heart that's hidden
Where no-one can free it, only to tear it apart.
Silje Nergaard on my iPod at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

Everything about this is incredible. Amazing Alice!

Silje is a Norge sistah. You get turned to her on from Head Hunter ST or is your musical taste as eclectic as your eye?

Alice Olive said...

No, she comes to me via my (Australian) sister.

Tintin: Please refer to the original. (Which I suggest in most situations is usually the best.)

George Michael does a version as well

Ha, yet I didn't recognise the lyrics at all!

The song suits this image perfectly. But these lines make me sad.

Alice Olive said...

Kathleen: I know. Makes me sad, too. I have listened to it many times on the plane as we leave Sydney and cried my eyes out. Actually, no matter what, I cry when I listen to this song.

Kathleen said...

Ha, I have a plane-song that I use to indulge in crying when flying away too.

Mine is Peter, Paul and Mary covering Leaving on a Jetplane.

Heh.

Love the lines in this image and having the woman reading finishes it for me. Lovely

Simply amazing. Love the geometrical contrast in here. Got my eye on your blog now.
