Philosophy is like trying to open a safe with a combination lock:
each little adjustment of the dials seems to achieve nothing,
only when everything is in place does the door open.

Sunning on a concrete bridge

Near Sabino Creek.

Some dragonflies could be as big as a hawk.”

Dragonfly On Point — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Late August,

Aging colors change
In desert wetlands
Pensive like a sharp turn.

And yet,
What persistence
Balanced as perchance?

Flying for meters
Only to go back
To the same point.

The Dragonfly

Today I saw the dragonfly

Come from the wells where he did lie.

An inner impulse rent the veil

Of his old husk: from head to tail

Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.

He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;

Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew

A living flash of light he flew.

— Alfred Lord Tennyson

‘Hold Tight’ — Oil Painting in Black and White by kenne

 

Hold tight
Hold tight
If you wanna make this feeling stay
Hold tight
Hold tight
Don’t let this moment fade away
Hold tight
Now tears gonna stay
Everybody gets the chance someday
Call it once it last you think you’ve got it made
Not a word that anyone can say
That can change the way you feel
Cause you know that love is real
You can choose within you fall in love
Anybody any moment any way
‘Cause no matter who you chose
There’s a chance that you might loose
Gonna the best that I can do
Hold tight

— from Hold Tight by David Romani / Davide Romani / Mauro Malavasi / Paul Adrian Slade
