Blowin’ in the Wind

Daily Image - 1 January 2012 - Blowin' in the Wind

I came upon this scene near the little harbour of Chegoggin and was immediately transported to my youth in the 60’s. Written by Bob Dylan and performed by folk artists too numerous to mention,  Blowin’ in the Wind offers to answer the eternal questions about peace, war and freedom. We took these issues so seriously in our youth and yet so many of us today have forgotten. So, it seems, have the youth of today. Personally, I’m for continuing to ask… and insisting on an answer. It’s a new year folks… we still have time.

  1. Though with a different horizon line, and in color rather than black and white, I find that a picture I did last year has a similar feel to yours:

    Much is still blowing indeed.
