Like blue in the sky by spiritsighs Like blue in the sky by spiritsighs
I know a lot of people don't like country music - and I use to be one of them. which is ironic since I'm "a country gal livin' in Kentucky". I can remember listening to it when I was growing up because of my family who loved it - but I never really liked it much esp as I got older. But this past year I found myself listening to it more and more... with an open mind, I mean.. really listening to it... and discovered a newfound appreciation and love for country music and "country" in general. It reminds me of the good times, of my family, of my roots, of my home, of my life.

This was another work inspired by one of my most recent favorite country songs "Like red on a rose" by Alan Jackson. The first time I heard this song and watched the video I was completely captivated by it. It's such a romantic and dreamy video and beautiful song (wish I had someone to sing it to me lol). You can watch it here if you want.


Like red on a rose
When your lips first smiled at me
I was captured instantly
To each his own

Like blue in the sky
The gaze of your willing eyes
Touched something deep inside
The truth be known

That I love you like all little children love pennies
And I love you ‘cause I know that I can’t do anything wrong
You’re where I belong
Like red on a rose

And I love you like all little children love pennies
And I love you like good times of which I’ve known many
And I love you ‘cause I know you give me a heart of my own
You make my blood flow
Like red on a rose

Thank you for this lovely image, it's like moonlight. I always have a soft spot for horses, although I am allergic ... I always went riding every weekend at home, no matter how sick it made me afterwards ;0)

It's beautiful and ... not not quite haunting... but it defenitively has it's very own quality. The blue undertone gives the feeling like it were pre-dawn hours.... you know... not quite dark anymore but the sun has yet to rise.
