Inside Out

One Day After Another

Good day.

Pandora played “One Day After Another” by Lou Doillon for me this morning. Oh did they hit the right note with this one. Rain all night, social distancing for months, approaching years…

Isn’t that strange, how one day follows another
Like rain drops on your panes,
Running out of time and running out of breath,
You drop your dreams one after the other

Lou Doillon

Leaving you with “Toolik Lake Research Mission”. First you couldn’t see the hand in front of your face. Then, the fog gradually lifted and we could see two scientists puttering around the lake. After all it turned into a most pleasant day.


A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall

I’ve stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
I’ve walked and I’ve crawled on six crooked highways
I’ve stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
I’ve been out in front of a dozen dead oceans

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan was 21, when he wrote this song. It was 1962, just before the Cuban Missile Crisis. Certainly a protest song that touched on many topics – war, society, religion, and the environment – possibly more relevant today than ever. The master himself admitted he put so many words into this song because he thought he would never find the time to write songs about all the issues.

We expect a break in the weather, hence the break in the Waterfall series, to be continued after the first major storm of fall 2015 clears. We are expecting 4-6 inches of rain, 60 mile per hour winds, high seas, flood warning, and mud slides. As Bob said, a hard rain is going to fall.
