The Ballad Of You & Me & Pooneil
by Jefferson Airplane

If you were a bird and you lived very high,
knew even the wind as the breeze came by,
say to the wind as it took you away,
That's where I wanted to go today"
And I do know that I need to have you around
Love like a mountain springtime,
flashing through the rivers of my mind;
it's what I feel for you.
You and me go walking south
And we see all the world around us,
The colors blind my eyes and my mind to all but you,
And I do know that I need to have you around,
And I do, I do know that I need to have you around.
I have a house where I can go
When there's too many people around me;
I can sit and watch all the people
Down below goin' by me;
Halfway down the stair is a stair
Where I sit and think about you and me;
But I wonder will the sun still see all the people goin'
Will the moon still hang in the sky when I die,
When I die, when I'm high, when I die?
If you were a cloud and you sailed up there,
You sail on water as blue as air,
You'd see me here in the fields and say,
"Doesn't the sky look green today?"

great pic!
It's always weird to see a satellite pic looking to the South, puts you offbalance from the expected.
I remember being perplexed once looking at an ad with Europe turned upside down on purpose to make Barcelona a 'city of the North' :lol:

That is a pretty darn interesting pic, and yeah the angle does throw you off. Just need to see one from the NW-Huron perspective. I think I may have seen this (or a similar one) once before as well. It's especially neat how you can make out the water bodies so clearly, especially in the Adirondacks - Raquette River, Saranac Lake, the whole St. Lawrence "reverse delta", etc.
