Shine it all on

Art, love, Music, People, Spiritual

I can shine it all on and still be amazed.

Tenderness
If I want it I pay
My true love
Well she threw it away

Shine it all on

What I Have To Offer

love, Music, People

Although I am a huge fan of Mark E Everett and his band Eels, due to some personal little earthquakes last year I had a difficult time listening to his music that has often a melodramatic character. He is a master in expressing the struggle he has with romance and love:

What I Have To Offer

What I have to offer
Well, there’s a lot
Now I’m a modest man
But look at all I got
For all the wear and tear
I look OK
I got good manners
And I make good pay
And you know I’m all full of love
For you
What I have to offer
Well, there’s so much
I care and nurture and a
Tender touch
I got a pleasin’ disposition
And I don’t care about
Football or fishin’
And you know that I’m all full of love
For you
What I have to offer
Well, check it out
I’ve learned some things
And I know what it’s about 

I’m quite discerning and
I’m pretty smart
It takes an awful lot to
Win my heart

But you know that I’m so full of love
For you

 

So when this amazing artist recently visited The Netherlands, I hesitated for a moment to go but just for a brief moment. I took my beloved Leica M8 with me and being signed by Anton Corbijn it resulted in this photograph which reminds me of the Rattle and Hum period of U2.

Thanks Mark and Anton for your art and inspiration.
