Lyrics to Echoes, by Pink Floyd (1971)


I choose this song as one exemplary of Existentialism in lyrics or poetRy. My appellate empathic struggled through the morass of anti-War and/or anti-NucleaRism. I had to settle upon the word “AlbatRoss” pRimarily because of my many oceanic tRavel-tRavails. There were many different recordings of their disharmonic and lyrical-pRouncements in songs/ cuts, from albums, but! Being one of the first in Colorado Springs to underscore the values of Pink Floyd in, fall 1966. My album was a turn-on to neighbors who may have had study times I had admonished and thus inquired. Do you folks do that much today? There was also, a song by my san fRan favorite (The Fool) by Quicksilver Messenger Service. The song “AlbatRoss” was my favorite form Fleetwood Mac, first heard live in Aurora IL as I was resting from hiking: Indiana to Illinois (1977) w the Ecology gRoup. Yes, Existentialist enumerist and non-Stoic embRace on words/wordages as well as in non: repetitious-Boredom.




Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air

And deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves

The echo of a distant tide

Comes willowing across the sand

And everything is green and submarine


And no one showed us to the land

And no one knows the wheres or whys

But something stirs and something tries

And starts to climb towards the light


Strangers passing in the street

By chance two separate glances meet

And I am you and what I see is me

And do I take you by the hand

And lead you through the land

And help me understand the best I can

And no one calls us to move on

And no one forces down our eyes

No one speaks

And no one tries

No one flies around the sun


Cloudless every day you fall upon my waking eyes

Inviting and inciting me to rise

And through the window in the wall

Come streaming in on sunlight wings

A million bright ambassadors of morning


And no one sings me lullabies

And no one makes me close my eyes

So I throw the windows wide

And call to you across the sky.

Bio-sketch (2-27-16)…

I started into believing that I would be able to show my data and my photogRapHics in 1996. By 1998 I was learning computers would gain ascendant methods thru technics of programming for a future connected to data and information. That was nuclear-Molecular finding(s) to share and my personal-Activism w first account specifics and engendering(s).

As cameras went 'digital-Tech' I fond that editing was also to follow in 2004. Then, in 2005 my first digital camera had replaced usage(s) of s.l.r. 35 mm's. I have no mercy nor pity for the thieves who have stolen my hard werk, as anxiety of what I allowed was mid-stReam--anyway! Those asshole-Pukes have cost me $1,000's on a fixed income and I remain single, sole-Survivor of two-Families w.o. offspring!
