Great jmcl 2007-03-29 23:08

Hi Josť,

wonderful light and colorful capture that frames my thoughts on what daily life must be like in that place.

I had a thought on the mural ...
From the album "the Hard and the Easy"
by Great Big Sea

Mermaids
According to Phil Hillier
traditional

Well I was a lad in the fishing town
An old man said to me
You can spend your life, your jolly life just sailing on the seas
You can search the world fro pretty girls till your eyes are weak and dim
But donít go searching for a mermaid son if you donít know how to swim

Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
But I only liked the upper part
I did not like the tail

So I signed on to a whaling ship
My first very day at sea
I seen a mermaid in the waves
Reaching out to me
Come live with me in the sea she said
Down on the ocean floor
Iíll show you a million wondrous things that you never seen before

So over I jumped and she pulled me down
Down to her seaweed bed
And a pillow made of a turtle shell she placed beneath my head
She fed me shrimp and caviar upon a silver dish
From her head to her waist it was just my taste
But the rest of her was a fish

Cause her hair was green as seaweed
Her skin was blue and pale
Her face it was a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
I only liked the upper part
I did not like the tail

But then one day she swam away
So I sang to the clams and the whales
Oh how I miss her seaweed hair
And the silver shine of her scales
But then her sister she swam by
And set my heart awhirl
Cause her upper part was an ugly fish
But her bottom part was a girl

Yes her hair is green as seaweed
Her skin is blue and pale
Her legs they are a work of art
I love that girl with all my heart
I donít give a damn about the upper part
Cause thatís how I get my TAIL
