On this day in 1935 Elvis Presley was born.
There must be lights burning brighter somewhere.
Got to be birds flying higher in a sky more blue.
If I can dream of a better land,
where all my brothers walk hand in hand.
Tell me why, oh why,
oh why can't my dream come true?
There must be peace and understanding sometime.
Strong winds of promise that will blow away
all the doubt and fear.
If I can dream of a warmer sun,
where hope keeps shining on everyone.
Tell me why, oh why,
oh why won't that sun appear?
We're lost in a cloud
with too much rain.
We're trapped in a world
that's troubled with pain.
But as long as a man
has the strength to dream
he can redeem his soul
Deep in my heart there's a trembling question.
Still I am sure, that the answer's
gonna come somehow.
Out there in the dark,
there's a beckoning candle, yeah.
And while I can think, while I can talk.
While I can stand, while I can walk.
While I can dream.
Please let my dream come true...

I should mention that the ducks walk the red carpet to and from the
fountain every single day. This was their evening trip back up to
This is a re-post of a shot I took over two years ago.
A while back I posted this shot on a music related forum
and it sparked up a lot of conversation between myself and
another music addict. In following months, I became great friends
with this guy that lived in California and we would share our audio
addiction with each other through email.
Today, I found out that my buddy passed away on August 6th.
This photo will always remind me of him because he brought it up
in conversation so many times.
RIP My Friend
