look back in silence

The New Year is upon us....
What better time for past reflection, present thankfulness & future dreams?



I love the Cirque du Soleil purity & the Vegas atmosphere of this video.  
Such contrast.
Perfect for a New Year celebration...& the song itself is fantastic: 
It has a certain strength & yet a vulnerability, a deep darkness but also a lightness... 
Just like life.
Makes you think... 

Look back in silence; the cradle of your whole life. 
There in the distance, loosing its greatest pride. 
Nothing is easy, nothing is sacred. Why? 
Where did the bow break? 
It happened before your time. 

There were people there, lovely as you've ever been. 
Tonight. 
Baby you can start again. 
Laughing in the open air; have yourself another dream. 
Tonight. 
Maybe we can start again. 

Only the young can break away, break away. 
Lost when the wind blow; on your own, ohh.. 
Only the young can break away, break away. 
Lost when the wind blow; on your own, ohh... 

Mother its cold here. Father thy will be done. 
Thunder and lightening are crashing down. 
They got me on the run, direct me to the sun. 
Redemption keeps my covers clean tonight. 
Baby we can start again.






And the sun will shine again. 
And the sun will shine again. 
Are you looking for a sign? 

Or are you caught up in the light?  

Only the young can break away, break away. 
Lost when the wind blow; on your own, ohh... 
Only the young can break away, break away...


Also, when did Brandon Flowers 
get so good looking?  
How did I not notice this before?

But in all seriousness & honesty:

I wish each of you nothing but the best
 as well as the courage, health & strength 
for whatever life brings you & your loved ones in the coming year of 2011...

Cheers.
