Locked in an eternal embrace

February 7, 2007

Daily Mail

This article is self-explanatory. Here is the photo of eternal love from the article:

Their loving embrace has lasted an eternity -

well 5000 years to be precise

This could have been Kat and me if we had lived back then and were that young when we met.

:heart:

The lyrics to this song are quite apropos to this article. Read them and see for yourself. :)

Song: BEOFRE MY TIME

I KNOW THAT HEARTS WERE LOVING

LONG BEFORE I WAS HERE

AND I'M NOT THE FIRST TO EVER CRY

IN MY BED OR IN MY BEER

THERE WERE SONGS BEFORE THERE WAS RADIO

OF LOVE THAT STAYS AND LOVE THAT GOES

THEY WERE WRITING MELONCHOLY TUNES

AND TEARFUL WORDS THAT RHYME

BEFORE MY TIME

BEFORE MY TIME

VERSE:

THERE WERE SONGS IN OLD DUSTY BOOKS

OF LOVE THAT’S ALWAYS BEEN

SWEET LOVERS IN THEIR GLORY

WHO ARE NOW GONE WITH THE WIND

OLD FASHION LOVE WORDS SPOKEN THEN

KEEP COMING BACK AROUND AGAIN

NOTHINGS CHANGED EXCEPT THE NAMES

THEIR LOVE BURNS JUST LIKE MINE

BEFORE MY TIME

BEFORE MY TIME

AND IN THE DIM OF YESTERDAY

I CAN CLEARLY SEE

THAT FLESH AND BLOOD CRIED OUT TO SOMEONE

AS IT DOES IN ME

AND THERE WAS SOME OLD SONG THAT SAID

I LOVE YOU 'TIL I DIE

BEFORE MY TIME

BEFORE MY TIME

BUT WHAT THE OLD TIME MASTERS HAD

IS WHAT I FEEL FOR YOU

LOVE IS LOVE AND DOESN'T CHANGE

IN A CENTURY OR TWO

IF SOMEWAY THEY HAD SEEN AND KNEW

HOW IT WOULD BE FOR ME AND YOU

THEY'D WISH FOR LOVE LIKE YOURS

AND THEY WOULD WISH FOR LOVE LIKE MINE

BEFORE MY TIME

BEFORE MY TIME

:heart:

This picture reminds me of that wonderful engraving in Flammarion's Astronomie Populaire (1879):

flammarion1a.jpg

The last human pair, touched by the finger of death, covered by the shroud of eternal ice

The strange bands on the rocks and in the sky are a moiré pattern caused by the lines of the engraving interfering with the pixel raster. Here is a close-up:

Accompanied, of course, by their faithful dog.

The love of a dog is another love that never dies....

Judith

But the dog will!! :lol:

Looking at the first picture I was reminded of the last lines Victor Hugo's Hunchback of Norte Dame where years after the novel's events Quasmodo and Esmarelda's skeletons are discovered intertwined. The skeletons fall apart when they try to separate them.

The theory that the woman was killed so her soul could accompany his....

Great in the movies, but man, don't do me any favors!

I bet if it was the other way around the guy wouldn't have caught one.

I think that both pictures are sweet... Not really because I enjoy looking at skeletons beut because of the idea they represent. The idea may seem old-fashioned but Rand herself said that her husband was the only person she would die for -- Or who she knew would die for her.
