Rock and Roll is here to Stay!

https://joan-reese.pixels.com/featured/rock-and-roll-on-st-marks-nyc-joan-reese.html
Rock and roll is about desire, about wanting something better. My understanding of the rock and roll dream is that a kid in an isolated place or a small town or an underprivileged world could transcend it somehow.       Bobbie Ann Mason

False friends are like your shadow; 
they follow you in the sun, 
but leave your side when it gets dark.

Skyscraper National Park

“I was lucky to live in New York when it was dangerous and edgy and cheap enough to play host to young, penniless artists. That was the era of "coffee shops" as they were defined in New York—cheap restaurants open round the clock where you could eat for less than it would cost to cook at home. That was the era of ripped jeans and dirty T-shirts, when the kind of people who are impressed by material signs of success were not the people you wanted to know.”

Keep Calm and Love Flamingos

                        https://joan-reese.pixels.com/featured/pretty-pink-flamingos-joan-reese.html
A flock of flirting flamingos is pure, passionate, pink pandemonium-a frenetic flamingle-mangle-a discordant discotheque of delirious dancing, flamboyant feathers, and flamingo lingo.

Lady Liberty on Broadway

https://joan-reese.pixels.com/featured/lady-liberty-on-42nd-street-joan-reese.html?newartwork=true
Nearly all Americans have ancestors who braved the oceans-liberty-loving risk takers in search of an ideal-the largest voluntary migrations in recorded history. Across the Pacific, across the Atlantic, they came from every point on the compass-many passing beneath the Statue of Liberty-with fear and vision, with sorrow and adventure, fleeing tyranny or terror, seeking haven, and all seeking hope...Immigration is not just a link to America's past; it's also a bridge to America's future.                                George H. W. Bush
