Soundtrack of my Life

Published February 11th, 2013

Stairway to Heaven - Magnificent - this song hits me like a hammer. I heard it for the first time in late 72.

But in 2011 we found the picture to the soundtrack.

Stairway To Heaven

It was in the time, as I started to grab every kind of hard and heavy rock music - the time of all these freaky glam rock bands, singing from sugar, lollipop and sweet kisses.
But. There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold - and she's buying a stairway to Heaven.
I heard this song a few hundred times or a few hundred times more. And every time it makes me happy, and every time it makes me blue. And every time I ask myself about the meaning of these lines of brilliant text. Impossible and not necessary to understand.
Every time I hear the song it is something special - also because of the growing pictures in my brain about the Stairway to heaven - The Soundtrack of my Youth, yes, of my Life.
In 2011 I found the Picture to this Soundtrack - a real Stairway to Heaven !
We did hiking at this time along Wales' west coast, not far from a small village, called Milford Heaven. In the middle of our way wie found the place, what we didn't looking for....Stairway to Heaven.
Look at this picture. Do You hear the song? Do You see the Lady? Do You feel the mood of the Soundtrack of Your Life?

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all, yeah
To be a rock and not to roll

And she's buying a stairway to Heaven

Oh man, gorgeous lines!
We always have a song in our mind and find the perfect photo to describe the feelings or emotions it conveys to us is very good job!
