Cloudbusting

I was taking pictures this past week, on a particularly windy day, where the weather was "a moving and a shaking", and the clouds were tearing across the sky, while the wind rattled my loose shutters and played an impromptu concert on my windchimes. And this is what came to mind. Say what you will - this song always puts me in a positive frame of mind, which really doesn't have that much to do with the lyrics, if you were thinking it was some father/daughter love fest --- Neyahhh, not so much. But it is great to listen to underwater, when one is submerging, tubwise, and going interior. Not exactly like Calgon, but you're getting warm. Cloudbusting, by Kate Bush, from The Hounds of Love

I still dream of Organon.
I wake up cryin'.
You're making rain,
And you're just in reach,
When you and sleep escape me.

You're like my yo-yo
That glowed in the dark.
What made it special
Made it dangerous,
So I bury it
And forget.

But every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out--
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

On top of the world,
Looking over the edge,
You could see them coming.
You looked too small
In their big, black car,
To be a threat to the men in power.

I hid my yo-yo
In the garden.
I can't hide you
From the government.
Oh, God, Daddy--
I won't forget.

'Cause every time it rains,
You're here in my head,
Like the sun coming out--
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

It's you and me, Daddy.

It's you and me... Daddy---

It's you and me... Daddy---

E-yeah yeah yeah yeah yo-ohhhhhhhhhh

And every time it rains
You're here in my head
Like the sun coming out.
Your son's coming out.
Ooh, I just know that something good is gonna happen.
And I don't know when,
But just saying it could even make it happen.

Ooo-ohh, just saying it could even make it happen.

I'm Cloudbusting Daddy.

Your son's coming out.
Your son's coming out.

I love you cloud photos.

And I ADORE Kate Bush, especially that song. I'm going to go find the CD and play the album right now. It's a great day for it here, too.

Thanks for that reminder!

I still call it that, to this day, after writing it on your tape (And I'm still really, really sorry!)
