The Hydra Bench: Photo Galleries now open (copy from News)

Postby jarkko » Sun Jun 18, 2017 10:59 pm

Eija and I have now created three Photo Galleries:

- construction of the bench
- inauguration of the bench
- street naming & open air concert

You will find all these here: https://cohen.1g.fi/kuvat/OUR+STONE+BEN ... RA+(2017)/

All photos by Panagiotis Macromanolis and Eija Arjatsalo. Copyright 2017.

If you want to use a photo on another website, please email or PM me for permission.

It is also possible to download any or all the photos.

We will also make a Gallery with meetup photos but it will take a while.

Finally done!

A bench above the ocean

Song by Claudia Rucker
(She performed it at the inauguration of our Hydra Bench)
A bench above the ocean
Sitting with Leonard watching the birds flying high

Tell me is night coming on so calm up there?
And are the crickets there singing and the vesper bells ringing?
Is your mother standing in luminous air?
You crossed over you were going home.

A bench above the ocean
Sitting with you watching the birds flying by

Tell me what Marianne looks like in heaven.
Her hair upon the clouds like a sleepy golden storm.
Is Nancy still talking so freely up there?
She knows from your eyes that tonight will be fine.

A bench above the ocean
Sitting with you watching the birds flying free

Do you sit with Hank Williams in the tower of song ?
Talking how lonely it gets up there.
You will always be the teacher of my heart.
Your golden voice in my ears forevermore..

A bench above the ocean
Sitting with you watching the boats coming in

You got me singing even though your world is gone.
And I miss you so much, there is no one in sight.
Forgive me for taking your words for this song.
As you know a lover needs to be a thief sometimes too.
As you know a lover needs to be a thief sometimes too.
