Paul,

“So why? do the LG stands in Sea Girt have ramps??   Interesting.”

Bob

 

Editor’s note:   Bob,  I think the ramp is so the lifeguards can slide down and reach the beach  a split second earlier–like the firemen have the pole.

And why do they call that place Sea Girt?   What the Heck Avenue does “girt” mean?

Love the photo, by the way.  —Paul

Tuesday, February 3, 2015.   Re-post.

 

Paul, Good morning.

I shoot the same things, over and over, but they always look a little different.

Snow on the beach….we got another dusting yesterday afternoon/evening.

Made for a pretty dawn this morning… Eleven degrees. Froze the locks and windows on my car!

Catch some sun for me ….put it in a bottle and throw it in the Ocean…maybe it will come my way.

Bob, reporting from Ocean Grove beachfront and Ocean Pathway.

Beachfront Sunrise. By Paul Goldfinger. Ocean Grove. Blogfinger.net ©

 

Hi Paul:

Greetings from Manhattan. I was struck by your quietly beautiful photo, “Beachfront Sunrise,” (posted recently on Blogfinger), and your statement that you preferred sunrises to sunsets because “beginnings are happier than endings.”

Here is the poem, “Dawn,” from my 2008 collection, Father of Water.

 

Best wishes,

Charles Pierre

 

 

Dawn

By Charles Pierre

 

The first hint of morning on the ocean

is a trembling of shadows,

 

a dark hovering of muted tones

that moves with imperceptible pace,

 

a vanishing medium through which

the day brightens and widens,

 

the new light going on for miles and miles

in the shine of emerging surf.

 

BILL FRISELL. “Across the Universe.”

We played this song yesterday   (2015)  by Nora Jones and Willie Nelson, but Lee Morgan, our resident music professor at the Blogfinger University, has a retro-idea.  This is what he says:

“The last words I uttered last night were “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”  No coincidence that my first words this morning were those same words. 

“In 1944, Frank Loesser penned a song entitled “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” The song is a duet between a man and a woman…

“The piece has been covered by dozens of artists over the years. In 1961 Ray Charles and Betty Carter came together and made this iconic recording. There is nothing I can say that will aid the  experience of carefully listening to their magic.” 

 

RAY CHARLES AND BETTY CARTER with a 54year old classic duet for the ages:
