Well, I am away again. Greek Easter was calling. Odd, given that I don't have a religious bone in my body that I finish UK Easter and then go jump on a plane to celebrate Greek (Orthodox) Easter. I guess not so much celebrate as observe and enjoy. Of course, getting a little early sun is always high on the agenda as well and the opportunity for photos. Perhaps it's the desire just not to be working, but, moving about - not sure. Anyway, I am here and have decided on this trip not to automate posts but bring images with me and upload as and when I am so inclined - and the wifi connection permits. If I hadn't been unable to pick this up I guess I wouldn't have bothered to post at all. So, if it all dries up you'll know what it is. Two flights and two delayed flights was a pain in the ass but I suspect that I'll get little sympathy, after all I am on holiday again!
Sticking with the states for now, this shot being taken just outside of the town of Elizabeth, IL. and in particular a photo of Jo Daviess Carroll Area Vocational Center. I haven't explored fully just what they do there, but, I'm sure it's very important work indeed. It was late afternoon and I was just taken by the way the light was falling on the rather ordinary building.
For those that enjoy looking at maps and the like, I have managed to locate the place on Google's Street view.

Wake up now little sleepyhead
from your nightmarish day with the dead trip
you'd be better off not to know
of the wild seeds you let go
from your thorny fingertips
try to clean bloodstained hands
that ran away and left the scene
of a crime last night
always thought you stood on the other side
never thought the roof would cave in
where you were hiding
there's a wave of fear that creeps right in
a vacant stare that can't say where it's been
or what's been laced,
the trail leads all over the place
there's an angel at your side
who rescued you in a nick of time
explains how you almost fell
and vanished into a fatal spell
she looks into your eyes and sees
there's something still missing
she notices a chunk bleeding from your chest
tries to stop the bloodflow with her best compress
but the wreckage is in a mess
there's an emotional tax, figured in after the facts
and stories unfold
the world grows dark and bones get cold
you look into your heart and you know
there's something still missing
