This photo I took when visit my friend up in Stockholm, in early November-12 … we was walking over to the supermarket and there they where – this abandoned pair of male boots.
Don’t know the story behind them, but neither the owner have bought a new pair … or the boots just had enough. I think the truth is that the owner have been drunk, very drank – because nobody sorber or in their right mind will walk barefoot outdoors in November – in Sweden.
I don’t have the story behind the abandon boots – but I have a story about the song, but sang by Eric Carmen. It was an every early October morning in 1976 and I arrived to NYC for the first time – by ship.
Working as steward on a massive container ship by name Atlantic Saga, owned ACL. I was so excited to come to NYC, so I could sleep the night before. We were docking at the New Jersey side – and when we went down the Hudson river alongside Manhattan, I stood out deck in the morning and from my radio in cabin this song was playing, I will never forget that feeling and it was the greatest feeling I ever felt, I think – it was like my chest was going to burst. It was so impressive and so exciting. The morning sky over Manhatten so bold and intense in the most stunning pastel colors. It was only me and Manhattan in the whole world, in that moment.
So every time I hear this tack, I’m back on deck 12 … in the early morning meeting Manhattan for the first time ever, but not the last.
“The man with the boots
doesn’t mind where he
places his foot.”
