{en vedette} Daniele Martire ~ When The Levee Breaks

This is such an odd picture. Beyond odd. I have no idea what it means. Or the circumstances. Or what the levee has to do with an over-turned car. And what the over-the-top apping in sky is all about.

Wonderful!

And of course …

Led Zeppelin ~ When The Levee Breaks

If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break
If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break
When the levee breaks I’ll have no place to stay

Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan
It’s got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home
Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well

Don’t it make you feel bad
When you’re tryin’ to find your way home
You don’t know which way to go?
If you’re goin’ down South
They got no work to do,
If you don’t know about Chicago

Cryin’ won’t help you, prayin’ won’t do you no good
Now, cryin’ won’t help you, prayin’ won’t do you no good
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move

All last night sat on the levee and moaned
All last night sat on the levee and moaned
Thinkin’ about my baby and my happy home

Going, going to Chicago…
Going to Chicago…
Sorry but I can’t take you…
Going down… going down now… going down….

Amelia had a very puritanical upbringing. As a young woman she was required to sit with a straight back. She was expected to embroider, paint, sew and know how to run a household. Expected to do what elders and parents tell her to do. Fit a mold.

As a child Amelia was allowed to run free in the fields behind the manor with the wind, with the butterflies. As she grew older, adults shut down her wild impulses. So while she conforms to her environment and time, her body is there. However, her spirit is soaring with her butterflies, the earth, the sun and fresh air. Her little smile tells you she has secrets.

While conducting polite conversations, she runs and flies as high as she can. She is about to break out of the cocoon and stomp on traditions. She will fly despite the odds.

She will be reborn again and again as she touches the sun.
