A ray of sun, torn and frayed, on Boxing Day
"Torn and Frayed" is my favorite Rolling Stones song, although Exile on Main Street is a great album from top to bottom. I never tire of this tune. It is a perfect confluence that results in a perfect delivery. When I listen to it, I think, I'm hearing exactly what the artists want me to hear; I'm feeling exactly the way they want this song to make me feel.
It was also the inspiration for the title of this photo essay, which I shot on a hot sunny day. If there ever was a place that matched a song, it is Geneva On The Lake and "Torn and Frayed." So I invite you to let the YouTube play while you peruse the snaps in the associated link.
So maybe it's not a real ray of sun, but that's also as close as I can come to delivering a hot sunny Boxing Day from Cleveland, Ohio.
