First Lines - XIV

February 07, 2019  •  4 Comments

Here's the 14th edition of First Lines.  The caption is the first line of a popular R&R song.  Have a guess in the comments.  I'll hold all comments for a day or two so you don't see correct, or incorrect, attempts.  A quick thanks to Cedric Canard's post on Desire/Bliss for the idea.  I had the song/picture combo ready for a few months but his post spurred me on for it's arrival today. 

Now that I've Lost Everything to You

Wild World, Cat Stevens

The photo was taken in Joshua Tree National Park a good many years ago. We were camping in the Jumbo Rocks campground and enjoying morning coffee when I saw this guy mount that boulder and sit, staring into the rising sun, warming himself like a cat. The morning light in the desert is short lived but noticeably enriches that first cup of coffee.

I'm way late on this one but would never have guessed. Though, I'm glad that something I said was inspiring in some way :)
That light in the picture, that's pure magic isn't it. That kind of warmth can lift any spirit, any mood, to a higher place, symbolised rather well here with the man sitting atop of the boulder. Such light may be fleeting (like all things in life I suppose) but it's impact can be long lasting. Capturing it in this fashion, as you have here, makes it last longer still.

So, I couldn't remember the name of the song (so I had to cheat) , but I do know the artist - CAT STEVENS.

Fun game. Thanks for putting it out there every week so I can recognize how little I know about R&R song, lyrics, and artists. ;-)

I have no absolutely no clue as to the song so I will submit (with apologies to Otis Redding) "Sitting on the Rock of the Bay"

Stumped me this week!
