Pictures from the river today and a beautiful Rush song too....

I spent some time with nature and the skeeters today out by the river and snapped a few pictures too. Of course I was also listening to my iPod. Today's music was the Rush  "Snakes and Arrows" album, which is a newer one of theirs. 

A beautiful song that I really enjoyed was "Faithless". 
Here's the lyrics... 

I've got my own moral compass to steer by
A guiding star beats a spirit in the sky
And all the preaching voices -
Empty vessels ring so loud
As they move among the crowd
Fools and thieves are well disguised
In the temple and market place

Like a stone in the river
Against the floods of spring
I will quietly resist

Like the willows in the wind
Or the cliffs along the ocean
I will quietly resist

I don't have faith in faith
I don't believe in belief
You can call me faithless
I still cling to hope
And I believe in love
And that's faith enough for me

I've got my own spirit level for balance
To tell if my choice is leaning up or down
And all the shouting voices
Try to throw me off my course
Some by sermon, some by force
Fools and thieves are dangerous
In the temple and market place

Like a forest bows to winter
Beneath the deep white silence
I will quietly resist

Like a flower in the desert
That only blooms at night
I will quietly resist 

Here are a few pics that I took while listening to this deep and powerful album, which made a perfect soundtrack today.

It's actually not a lake, but is the Clinton River in Mt. Clemens.
