Songs, Storms, and Politics

camano island, beach photography, fine art photography, stormy weather

Three things on my mind… the turbulent season of politics, Bob Dylan and his Nobel Prize, and the coming Stormageddon in Western Washington. It’s the perfect trifecta.

And the above photograph captured in the summer of 2016 at Whidbey Island speaks to all three thoughts on my mind.

Buy Stormy Beach and hang on your wall

That plus the lyrics of Bob Dylan’s song Blowing In The Wind. Congratulations to one of the greatest musical poets of our times.

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take ’till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind
