Come Sail Away…

Come Sail Away

Come Sail Away

“I’m sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea
I’ve got to be free, free to face the life that’s ahead of me
On board, I’m the captain, so climb aboard
We’ll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I’ll try, oh Lord, I’ll try to carry on
I look to the sea, reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had
We live happily forever, so the story goes
But somehow we missed out on that pot of gold
But we’ll try best that we can to carry on
A gathering of angels appeared above my head
They sang to me this song of hope, and this is what they said
They said come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me
Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me”

Washington Saxophone Quartet

The Washington Saxophone Quartet recently visited Doylestown for a “Weekend of Saxophone”.  I had the honor of attending and photographing three events at which they played beautiful, fun, inspiring music for various audiences.  This is ONE of my favorite images of the quartet taken Saturday evening at the Mercer Museum.  The quartet played in front of a crowd of approximately 80 people attending a fundraiser for two music programs in Buck’s County.  More images will follow later in the week.

A Man and His Cello in Central Park

There is a woman on Facebook who posts daily, if not multiple times a day, that I love to follow.  Her page is titled “Humans of New York”.  Her photos are fantastic and they totally capture the diversity and uniqueness of humans living in New York City and the surrounding area.

During a recent trip into the city we strolled through Central Park.  This is just one of many fascinating sights and it reminded me so much of “Humans of New York.”
