One dragonfly away

One dragonfly away


adrienneWelcometotheweekendfeelingbeachiebutton 200x200one day I will meet – you

yet, can we possibly be – one

you will be living – up there

I will be working – down here

yet, together we will be — one

I just could not resist, when I read Adrienne’s prompt for this week, I just had to share one of my all time favorite songs, by a band I have seen live waaaaaay back in the 80s, before this song came along. And whenever I hear One, irresistibly my hand moves towards the volume button and turns it way up. Like I did just now, with my headphones one, of course…


And now for the Friday Four Fill ins ~ here is from Hilary’s blog:


  1. When it rains I want to go to bed under a skylight and listen to it’s sound.
  2. Photography is a great way to balance work in the corporate office (when I find the time).
  3. Is there ever a good time to diet?
  4. I can’t leave home without my (smart)phone and some plastic aka credit card.

o.k. and here is today’s photo for this post. One little, lonely dragonfly found it’s one water lily leaf.

    I love to listen to the rain too : ) love your photo, the dragonfly is beautiful x

  • hilary

    there is never a good time to diet!

  • Debbi Decker

    The sound of a gentle rain on a metal rooftop can be so soothing. Your dragonfly is cute!

    • Claudia Willison

      Thank you, Debbi. Hmmm, on a metal rooftop – interesting, I guess the rain really would have to be gentle, otherwise you’d get the drum feeling 😀

  • Rorybore

    LOVE this song. LOVE them. Best concert ever.
    Love the dragonfly shot too — I got one this week and he has this weird pattern on his head — it looks like a smiley face!! I’ll have to edit it for a close up and post it later.
    We had a rain storm this week and me and the kids all gathered in my bed to hear it pounding on the roof. no skylight though 🙁

    • Claudia Willison

      I’m happy you love the song, too, Leslie!
      Dragonflies have fascinated me for a long time, but for some reason I never felt compelled to take pictures of them. Until I got the new lens a couple of months ago. Now I got to check if you already posted your photo.
      Actually, it is raining here right now. Sounds very nice, but I wanted to go out and take photos later, not sure if that’s going to happen

  • Tamara

    What a beautiful photo and I do love this song very much.
    I can’t leave home without my smartphone. Sometime I want do, just for freedom, but then I worry my car would break down and I’d have no phone!

    • Claudia Willison

      Thanks, Tamara, I thought you might like the song, too 🙂 Yeah, our smartphone addiction these days – nothing more to say about it. That ‘car break down’ was the very reason I got a personal (non-smart)phone in the first place. And I just hate the feeling when I left home and realize that I forgot my phone. There’s a good chance I go back to get it.

  • Debbie

    It’s a great song from an awesome band…..and a great idea for today’s word!!

  • Kathy

    I”M HERE!!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 Oh man…you posted one of my FAVORITE SONGS EVERRRRRR! I’m going to have to go check out this link up you are doing today, looks fun 🙂

    • Claudia Willison

      Yay – BIG YAY for Kathy, you gave me the final hint to find out why my ‘reply’ and ‘submit’ buttons were missing for a while 🙂 Thank you!
      Yes, join us on this hop, Kathy, it is always fun. Glad you like the song, too

  • Patricia

    No there is no good time to diet!

    • Claudia Willison

      Exactly, Patricia! Got to say though – there is always a good time to check which good stuff and how much of it you feed your body 😉

  • Deborah Pucci

    Thank you for stopping over. I use to love listening to the rain at my dad’s cottage back near Antioch, IL. It was so relaxing!
