At last, windmill! Posted by Hello

Windmills have always fascinated me since childhood, the reason I've always wanted to travel to the Netherlands, the windmill capital of the world.

For the meantime, this windmill on Island Park was enough to enchant the child in me.

Round like a circle in a spiral, like a wheel within a wheel
Never ending on beginning on an ever-spinning reel
Like a snowball down a mountain or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning, running rings around the moon
Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face
And the world is like an apple, whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find....
....The Colourfield, "The Windmills of Your Mind" (1984, single release)
....(originally composed in 1968, music by Michel Legrand,
....words by Marilyn Bergman and Alan Bergman)

    ei cool, windmills! ang saya - i remember that fear factor challenge (or some show like it) where he asked people if they would agree to being strapped on one of the arms (?) and doing several turns! lol. was fun to watch. i don't know if i'd do it though.

    Yuh, I remember that windmill at Magallanes Center. Kaya lang, never ko nakita yung elisi nito na umandar. Hahaha. Display lang yata 'yun e. Hehe.

    We'll travel together to the Netherlands someday, hon.

    Strapped on a windmill's propeller? Hmmm, cool. This suddenly reminded me of Duran Duran's "Wild Boys" video in which there was a scene with John Taylor strapped on a propeller. Wild indeed!

    Got the RIEL picture I sent you?
