A person can learn a lot from a dog…Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things — a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.” JOHN GROGAN, author of Marley and Me

The Roman aqueduct in Segovia, Spain, is pictured at twilight. Dating to the first century A.D., the well-preserved structure is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

James Stanfield‘s photograph of this Roman aqueduct (in Spain) called to mind one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs.

WHEN I PAINT MY MASTERPIECE (Excerpt)

by Bob Dylan

Oh, the hours that I spent inside the Coloseum,

Dodging lions and wasting time.

Oh, those mighty kings of the jungle 

I could hardly stand to see ’em

Yes, it sure has been a long, hard climb

Train wheels runnin’ through the back of my memory

When I ran on the hilltop following a pack of wild geese.

Some day everything is going to sound like a rhapsody

When I pain my masterpiece. 

Listen to The Band (with Levon Helm — RIP — singing) perform the song on YouTube.
