FRIDAY NIGHT DOG BLOG – Every Leaf July 26, 2015Posted by wmmbb in DOG BLOG -.
As far as Dexter and Hannah are concerned, there attention can sometimes seem as it is drawn to every blade of grass. There senses often prove more acute, and it is wise to take notice.
It seems important to note what is taken notice of and what we may turn our backs to. Sometimes this response is not due to lack senses or ignorance.
Of course, Dexter and Hannah are not aware of “every leaf that trembles, much less me. What I notice is that problems that are ignored cannot be addressed. There are many examples, but currently the ALP Party Conference is turning its back on the plight of refugees, as if they are not human beings that share the same sky and atmosphere, and as if we should not own their problems of the situation in which they live in Myanmar, Thailand, Sri Lanka, or elsewhere. It seems that now the Indonesian Government is getting in on the act, according to The Jakarta Times.
Hard as it is to be believe Dexter and Hannah are getting older – and with age comes wisdom! In a moment of madness, the camera was turned on the photographer, but it was such a sorry sight, it is better to stick to the more familiar. Some aspects are better not seen. With such a risk-adverse policy is ironic that the accompanying music to this week’s video photo record, from an extraordinary limited range of choice, by Silent Partner is called, “Chances”.
Bob Dylan‘s song, “Every Grain of Sand”, which seems beyond the range of most singers, including Bob, has the following lyrics:
Don’t have the inclination to look back on any mistake
Like Cain, I now behold this chain of events that I must break
In the fury of the moment I can see the Master’s hand
In every leaf that trembles, in every grain of sand
Oh, the flowers of indulgence and the weeds of yesteryear
Like criminals, they have choked the breath of conscience and good cheer
The sun beams down upon the steps of time to light the way
To ease the pain of idleness and the memory of decay
Emmylou Harris has the best version I could find:
I am not sure that leaves “tremble”, but there movement is something I have not previously noticed.
