A shot of a puddle after the rain in middlebury, indiana USA 10/24/2011. Shot with fujifilm finepix S 1000 fd camera.

I’m waiting in my cold cell, when the bell begins to chime.
Reflecting on my past life and it doesn’t have much time.
‘Cause at 5 o’clock they take me to the Gallows Pole,
The sands of time for me are running low…

Running low—ooohhh…
When the priest comes to read me the last rites,
I take a look through the bars at the last sights,
Of a world that has gone very wrong for me.

Can it be that there’s some sort of error?
Hard to stop the surmounting terror.
Is this really the end, not some crazy dream?

Somebody please tell me that I’m dreaming,
It’s not easy to stop from screaming,
But words escape me when I try to speak.
Tears flow but why am I crying?
After all I’m not afraid of dying.
Don’t I believe that there never is an end?

As the guards march me out to the courtyard,
Somebody cries from a cell “God be with you”.
If there’s a God then why does he let me go?

As I walk my life drifts before me.
Though the end is near I’m not sorry.
Catch my soul, it’s willing to fly away.

Mark my words believe my soul lives on.
Don’t worry now that I have gone.
I’ve gone beyond to see the truth.

When you know that your time is close at hand,
Maybe then you’ll begin to understand
Life down here is just a strange illusion.

Yeah, yeah, yeah…Hallowed be Thy name
Yeah, yeah, yeah…Hallowed be Thy name


reflections, trees, fall, leaves, fall scenes

I love to capture photos of everything. My favorite things to take photos of are nature, fall, and big cats. I hope one day big cats can be free to roam again. They deserve to be free like us.

    Is not life but a reflection of a strange dream. Do we not come from eternity and close the circle by returning unto eternity. That it is more, is truly the illusion. Love, live, forgive and forget. In the end, the Love you take, is equal to the Love you make. Death is the equalizer of all human kind, and our linear existence. There is peace beyond this dream, and God is his name.
