Sometimes I think I think too much…

I took this photo this morning, seeing the pool through the pouring rain I decided against going for a swim as I didn’t want to get wet.

edge of heaven

a feeling of hope… Watch me now as I take flight I’ll fly so high that I just might Touch the edge of heaven If I had hands instead of wings You and I would do so many things We would dance We would sing We would make love and thus find Our own piece of heaven. © 2006 Julian Luckham   I wrote this five years ago, it was written to go with the photograph I use for my blog, and was posted at my original blog, which I recently decided to rebuild in it’s new home here.
