I had to hang up our memories for they got a little wet in the fire by 


This is a bit of a story but do bear with me. Whilst sending a fax (which never went through) to my dear friend, i discovered some of my mom’s old photo’s of her and her friends in a field near our house. I am an old photo addict and i just love the tones that these old photo’s had. So now i have them stored for my own use. The lady in these pictures is one of my mom’s dear friends from university and they are simply beautiful photo’s. So i decided, why not peg them up on a washing line with a song. So i searched for a song involving the title “sky”. and this is what came up… Sky SignalAudible.
We will look for you
From down here
Up into the airwaves
Where you have gone
A crowd of broken sons
And daughters
Listen to confessions
Of what you’ve done
A signal in the sky
Or something
To help explain the thing
That you’ve become
We will look for you
From down here
Up into the airwaves
Where you have gone
Wherever you belong
Wherever you belong
Wherever you belong
Wherever you belong

It is quite a sad song but a beautiful one with very appropriate lyrics… The idea came from a artwork by Luis Mariano González which i mistook for things on a line but was actually a plant! haha! so i decided why not me do it! so i did… more to come..
