SKYWATCH FRIDAY – ’SCUSE ME WHILE I KISS THE SKY


Last weekend my neighbor down the road had a yard sale, and called me up to stop by for a visit. It had been nice in the morning, but by afternoon, ominous clouds began to roll in, and while we chatted we both kept an eye on the sky. I happened to look up just when the clouds parted in the shape of a perfect blue heart. Of course, I’d left my camera in the van, and had to trot across the road for it, and by the time I got back into position, the heart had morphed into this sweet little pair of lips. And that reminded me of the famous (and famously misheard) lyrics from the Jimi Hendrix song, Purple Haze.


Optional feature music for those who want a trip down memory lane: Purple Haze Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, August 1969 – 40 years ago!

Oh Deb, love seeing those lips---but I'll bet the heart was even better. It was almost as if God was telling us how much he loves us!!!! Ya think?????

I'm one of many who was very taken by the sheer daring of the line ''Scuse me while I kiss this guy'. At a time when there were more than enough woo-woo/crystal dreams lyrics around, it seemed to fit the decidedly visceral approach to guitar technique so much better.

It does look like a mouth with lips and the music coming out of it is awesome... like a walk down memory lane :)

Very fun; I get the lips! What I want to know is: How come no one ever made a plaster cast of his lips?

Lisa Wilson said...
