46 years ago today, "Time" was released as a single in the US. It is the only song on The Dark Side of the Moon whose musical composition is credited to all four members. Waters, by contrast, is the sole author of the lyrics, which constitute one of his most profound pieces of songwriting, from both a poetic and a philosophical point of view.The clocks and bells that ring out by way of an intro are a metaphor: they are announcing some kind of realization or awakening of the spirit. Waters is describing the inexorable passing of time, but he is also evoking our perception of it at the different stages of life, as well as the urgent need for us to take in hand our own destinies. Time is thus an evocation of Waters own experience, but it also conveys a tragically universal message: each passing day brings us closer to death, and all too often we are surprised to discover that already the song is over. Because we are going to die one day, it is important to relish even the simplest of pleasures, such as warming our bones beside the fire.
Conceived by the French director Adrian Maben as "an anti-Woodstock film" this clip is was part of the 1974 DVD release of the Live at Pompeii which included additional studio material of the band working on Dark Side Of the Moon and Sessions from Abey Road Studios.
The lunatic is in the hall,
The lunatics are in my hall...
The paper holds their folded faces to the floor..
And every day the paper boy brings more.

The fact that this photo is real gives me literal chills, this is absolute mesmerizing beauty like I've never seen before, all the way through human behavior and psychology;what seems distant feels more desirable, like in The Twilight Zone type of shit, journey into the unknown and more to discover.
And just like Terence McKenna once said : "Nobody knows Jack shit about what is going on" #darksideofthemoon

SNOW MOON :: Today’s full moon is a snow moon and the biggest super moon of 2019. It’s a good time to realign your priorities as the winter season comes to a close and we sense the first stirrings of spring.
Full moon rituals are all about using this powerful day, energetically wise, to find a quiet moment to sit with yourself in contemplation. It’s not something we tend to do in the busyness of our everyday life and perhaps a once-a-month commitment can help develop a more regular meditation practice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Try it today and see what arises for you. Let the moon lead the way...
