Reflections On Fallen Leaves…

I can’t see where you’re comin’ from
But I know just what you’re runnin’ from
And what matters thinkin’ who’s baddest but the
Ones who stop you falling from your ladder

When you feel like you’re feeling now
And doin’ things just to please your crowd
When I love you like the way I love you
And I suffer but I ain’t gonna cut you ’cause

This ain’t no place for no hero
This ain’t no place for no better man
This ain’t no place for no hero
To call home

The Heavy – “Short Change Hero”

As a child, I never could quite understand people’s fascination with fragile things, since they had to keep everyone – like rambunctious little boys – away from them. I’m much older now. And while I’m still not sure I’d trust myself to take proper care of such things, I do have much more of an appreciation for what they represent.

Since seeing these very cool Omid Asadi images on Visual News and Twisted Sifter, I’ve come to think of them as excellent ‘reflections’ of just how fragile things can be, and of just how hard it might be to repair them once broken…

A place to stay, enough to eat
Somewhere old heroes shuffle safely down the street
Where you can speak out loud about your doubts and fears
And what’s more, no one ever disappears
You never hear their standard issue, kicking in your door

You can relax, on both sides of the tracks
And maniacs, don’t blow holes in bandsmen by remote control
And everyone has recourse to the law
And no one kills the children anymore

  1. OMG IzaakMak, what have you done to your blog? Looking good!!! How is my dear old friend going? Today is so surreal with the passing of Robin Williams, he has left an enormous hole that no comedian or actor will ever fill.
