Both Sides, Now

So, what does this picture have to do with Both Sides, Now, Joni Mitchell’s classic hit?  I don’t know. I just felt it went with it.  This is a picture taken of the ceiling of the restaurant,  Rojo.  Wish I was a great writer like my brother, Al or my friend, Kip.

 

 

Rows and flows of angel h2015-06-23 12.26.43air
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun

They rain and snow on everyone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way

But now it’s just another show
You leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know
Don’t give yourself away

I’ve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all
Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say “I love you” right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In living every day

I’ve looked at life from bo
th sides now From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all
