against the wind

"It seems like yesterday 
But it was long ago 

Janey was lovely she was the queen of my nights

There in the darkness
with the radio playing low

 And the secrets that we shared 
The mountains that we moved

Caught like a wildfire out of control 

 Til there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove 

what she said to me 

 I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then
 Against the wind 
We were runnin' against the wind 
We were young and strong, we were runnin' 
Against the wind

The years rolled slowly past 
And I found myself alone 
Surrounded by strangers I thought were my friends 

I found myself further 
and further from my home

And I guess I lost my way  

There were oh so many roads

 I was living to run and running to live

Never worried about paying
   Or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend
I began to find myself searching 

Searching for shelter again and again 

Against the wind 
A little something against the wind 
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind 

Well those drifter's days are past me now 
I've got so much more to think about 
Deadlines and commitments 
What to leave in, what to leave out 

Against the wind 
I'm still runnin' against the wind 

I'm older now but still runnin' against the wind...
See the young man run... 
He'll be runnin' against the wind ...
Let the cowboys ride 
They'll be ridin' against the wind 
Against the wind" ...-Bob Seger

All photos images taken by me or my guy
fringed cardigan & skirt: thrifted
 sleeveless top: sewn by mom, used to be hers. 
boots: also used to be my mother's. She wore them when I was little.
 I first borrowed them from her in high school, then college.
Finally she said, "Teddi, you can have them."
 I squealed with delight.
