"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal- is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinder, and jolts, interspersed occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."---Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." - Elbert Hubbard

funny thing about that song........... In color...... it talks about seeing things in photos...........that they are black and white but if you were there it would have been in color......
i get it.
Sometimes I would prefer to just look forward but there is tangible proof of the past...
photos.
letters...
dreams.....

children.

dang it.

if it were only black in white..............

i wish.

i do.

maybe black in white is better sometimes? Maybe the grain is enough to hide? Maybe just maybe sometimes color is just too much?
Photobucket
You think?
Maybe its overboard in color? What about the stuff we would miss tho?

the song says.......you can't see what those shades of grey can cover..........you should have seen it in color.............thats the story of my life... right there in black in white..............trying to survive....

you should have seen it......


in color.

you should have seen it.
in color.



really................
it was beautiful......
it was different.......
it was then.


in color.
