Big Yellow Taxi – Day 165
It’s late here and after writing this blog post, I went to Youtube to find the audio on the video disabled. This makes me sad, because I cannot deal with it tonight, but I will attempt to fix it in the morning. I hope you’ll check back then –
I love this remix of Joni Mitchell’s classic Big Yellow Taxi. We went to Loose Park for the “green scenes” and the highway was downtown Kansas City in front of the Kansas City Star building. The traffic wasn’t moving very fast, we were hoping to get a better contrast between my movement and the traffic by me dancing super slow and then speeding up the video…which we did, but the contrast isn’t as much as we’d hoped. Still…the contrast between that and Loose Park is huge.
This song is a call to love what you have now and preserve what you truly value. Today is the day to do the thing I’ve been meaning to do. Today is the day to dance. Today is the day to tell you how I truly feel. Today is the day to tell you – I love you.
