With One Hand Waving Free...

This is one of my favourite photographs of Sarah, she was eight or nine years old when this was taken on a glorious day at a magnificent location with Sarah completely enthralled by the ocean.  
Below it is my favourite verse from my favourite song by Bob Dylan. For me the words and the photograph are made for each other.

Then take me disappearin' through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands,
With all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there is no place I'm going to.
Hey! Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning I'll come followin' you.
