Beautiful, Scilla. It captures a moment and a mood perfectly.
I couldn’t help adding the title because the song implies a mood that pervades Steve’s nature and some specific decisions he’s contemplating this week. “By the waters, the waters of Babylon, we lay down and wept, and wept for thee, Zion.” A picture paints a thousand words, and water paints a thousand moods, I think.
Oh, definitely. And you tapped into it perfectly, Scilla.
The view from above my apartment right now, as the water is pouring over us.
Wow! Just caught some footage of the subway steps in NYC, and it definitely resembles this river. Well, that’s a different mood, too! Be well nevertheless!
No better place to be…
I know how comfortable you are there….were you born under a water sign: Pisces, Cancer or Scorpio?
I’m a Capricorn, actually.
Another theory falls away… 😉
Well there is a fish story about this sign. A sea-goat… : )
“The symbol of the goat rising from the body of a fish represents with greatest propriety the mountainous buildings of Babylon rising out of its low and damp situation; the two horns of the goat being emblematic of the two towns, Nineveh and Babylon, the former built on the Tigris, the latter on the Euphrates; but both subjected to one sovereignty.”
By the waters of Babylon…. Everything is connected, and every one. 🙂
A wonderful moment Scilla, beautiful.
Thank you! The green woodland beyond the river probably holds some fantastic nymphs…. your kind of folk!
‘Wet or dry’ is the thought that comes to my mind! 😉
As in “do I wade across or not”?
No – fly. as in fly fishing
Didn’t see a single person fishing this river…saw a couple of kayakers and a boy catching frogs. But I did see something jump out of the water and back in. Maybe carp?
Wouldn’t like to say – but a trout might be more likely.
