The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Pictures from the Road

I want a dime, if you can spare a dime. I’ll go along my way peacefully — if you can’t I’ll go along my way peacefully — ya can’t win — ya can’t lose — and between here and Bismark, Idaho I got nothin’ but lost and lost and lost everything I had.

This barn is awesome.  I believe it is on the road between Palouse & Colfax, WA.  But, I know it's definitely somewhere in eastern Washington.  Photo by Jill, August 2014.

Will you or won't you

go down the road with me

whispering and willingly

snapping pictures as we move along

fast the car goes by and the scenery

always changing

what becomes of all the pictures

stored in the computer files

machines full of beauty and stories

the shelf is full of old journals

what if I gave them to you, would you read them

would you breathe a life into them

would you sing into them

and tell that young wild child "darling all is well and will always be."

no matter the way the road turns

will you drive the car?

and I'll take the pictures

you're the one I'd like to do this with

but it's like everybody's got a job to do

and...

— if you can’t I’ll go along my way peacefully — ya can’t win — ya can’t lose —
