Hold onto nothing, As fast as you can... by 


“Tears on the sleeve of a man
Don’t wanna be a boy today
Heard the eternal footman
Bought himself a bike to race
And Greg he writes letters
And burns his CDs
They say you were something in those formative years
Hold onto nothing
As fast as you can
Well still pretty good year” ~ Tori Amos, Pretty Good Year

    Just read the words… you could add this to Music Inspired Art Group. And maybe to Statues and Such. Is this one of Rodins Thinkers?

  • Thanks Peter. The challenge I have entered this in requires that it is only entered in that group but once that is done I will enter in the other groups you suggest. Thanks so much for your wonderful input my friend :)
