Picking up the pieces...

Is there anyone who
Ever remembers changing there mind from
The paint on a sign?
Is there anyone who really recalls
Ever breaking rank at all
For something someone yelled real loud one time

Everyone believes
In how they think it ought to be
Everyone believes
And they're not going easily

Belief is a beautiful armor
But makes for the heaviest sword
Like punching under water
You never can hit who you're trying for

Some need the exhibition
And some have to know they tried
It's the chemical weapon
For the war that's raging on inside

Everyone believes
From emptiness to everything
Everyone believes
And no ones going quietly

We're never gonna win the world
We're never gonna stop the war
We're never gonna beat this
If belief is what we're fighting for

What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand
Belief can
Belief can
What puts the folded flag inside his mother's hand
Belief can
Belief can

A day at the opera...

We saw Rossini's Cinderella today (an abbreviated version). It was OK. Like many things in Atlanta, it was pretty but missing something, depth/meat. The Cobb Energy Center has been the Opera's home for two years now. You would think in this time they would have figured out how to seat ~ 1,000 kids (most likely half that today) in a orderly and timely manner; nope, not yet. Anyway, Rossini has never been one of my favs, but for $6 a head, it was a nice field trip on a crisp autumn day. I know, I'm a snob.

Tullie Smith Farm

Who would think one could step back in time in the middle of a busy city. Ah, but you can in Atlanta.

Color in Atl, some by nature and some by man.

We traveled down to Midtown to see the Second Annual Contemporary Jewelry Show. Mac brought her camera and took a couple pictures of the show and some of the sights along the way.
