Marsha Burns – I grow old

From The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
T.S. Eliot #

Image (part of a series titled Shanghai Expo), comes from Marsha Burns‘ daily photo stream, which she sends to a fortunate few via email. There is no other way of seeing it. You have to know her. #

There are, of course, other poses to strike on the way to the exit. I saw an elderly man walking with brisk good cheer around Green Lake wearing a t-shirt with the legend, “Don’t trust anyone under 70.” Andrew Marvell didn’t want to last that long. He was an early advocate of an attitude best known today as The Who’s My Generation (Hope I Die Before I Get Old). Too bad Keith Moon didn’t live long enough to hear The Zimmers sing his band’s most famous song. Their effort might have slowed down his forward hurtle. Then again, maybe not. #

From Marvell’s To His Coy Mistress #

Speaking of making the sun run, here’s, first, SuttonBeresCuller‘s Merrry Go Round and second, Miwa Yanagi‘s Grandma and Mineko. #
