Farther On Up the Road

Imagine that you are walking up a gravel road just as the sun is rising. You are the only human in the landscape. Just ahead you see a golden glow, a spheroidal cloud of glowing mist. Should you walk right into the glow? What if it is a mystic portal to another world?

Or perhaps the scene is a visual analog to an old blues song:

That’s Bobby Bland singing; Eric Clapton also sings that song. The lyrics:


Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road, baby, just you wait and see.

You gotta reap just what you sow; that old saying is true.
You gotta reap just what you sow; that old saying is true.
Just like you mistreat someone, someone's gonna mistreat you.

You been laughing, pretty baby, someday you're gonna be crying.
You been laughing, pretty baby, someday you're gonna be crying.
Further on up the road you'll find out I wasn't lying.

Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road someone's gonna hurt you like you hurt me.
Further on up the road, baby, just you wait and see.

Further on up the road, when you're all alone and blue
Further on up the road, when you're all alone and blue
You're gonna want me back,
But I'll have somebody new.

    Wonderful photo and neat light. When I am traveling great distances in spring and autumn, I sometimes see something interesting in the distance and wonder if the road will take me there. Could be a glowing spot, or a rainbow touching the ground, or an odd shaped rock formation, or mist over a meandering river. It can be quite magical to find yourself driving into one of these places seen from afar.

    Unfortunately, that video won’t open on the ipad. Most do, but once in awhile they don’t. Guess it has something to do with the file format of the recording.
