Entangled

“Sentenced to drift far away now

nothing is quite what it seems

sometimes entangled

in your own dreams “

– ‘Entangled’,Genesis (1976)

I listened to this old prog rock song for the first time in years in the last week, and took the photograph about the same time.

I am not sure whether the song and its lyrics influenced the shot, but certainly not consciously.Maybe though at some weird unconscious level in the way that music does,evoking a mood or place.

The album the number comes from was one of the first I ever purchased .I drift back in time and see myself as a geeky 14 year old reading the lyrics intently from the beautiful cardboard gatefold  cover, while the vinyl record spun on the rudimentary turntable in my bedroom. I played that disc countless times(entranced with ‘Entangled’!)

I was a bit of a dreamer as a teenager and the music took me back in an instant to my younger self.

So too the tangled tree branches in their veined pattern,to some more recent troubled and nightmarish times.

All is dream.
