Oh Brooklyn…

“You are a splendid butterfly
It is your wings that make you beautiful
And I could make you fly away
But I could never make you stay”

All My Little Words by The Magnetic Fields

It feels like a day doesn’t go by without me being inspired by someone’s art. Music is such an integral part of who I am and I often find myself feeling so thankful for the musicians who did and continue to do whatever they need to do so they can express themselves and share their talent. Perseverance is a necessity and believing in yourself and your abilities is paramount to accomplishing your goals.  I’m not talking about success in any traditional sense but simply the enjoyment and fulfillment that often will accompany the act of creating or performing & sharing your talent.

I took this picture recently while traveling through Williamsburg Brooklyn on the Brooklyn Queens Expressway.  I try to always have my camera with me and when I’m fortunate enough to capture a scene like this one, I consider it a gift.  I’ve joined it with lyrics written by Stephin Merritt of The Magnetic Fields, one of my top five favorite bands. The song is from their 3 volume concept album “69 Love Songs”. It is brilliant. I’ll never forget hearing this album for the first time and how the songs seem to mesh so fittingly with the chapters of my life.  I highly recommend it. Checkout the beautiful  song “All My Little Words”
