"On the black rock, is where I spend my time writing that memory or writing a rhyme. Thinking about what is right or wrong. On the black rock, is where I like to go after a long night coming home from a show, and that's where I write my songs."
(A few lyrics from "Black Rock" by O.A.R.)
O.A.R. has a song called "Black Rock" about Black Rock, Maryland (you can see images from it here). I remember when I discovered O.A.R. and the very first time I heard this song. I was in college and I had my very own "Black Rock." We moved to California, and there was a part of me that needed to find a new black rock- somewhere I could go be alone, talk to God, stop, and breathe. I feel the exact same here in Okinawa, and I found it this week when I got lost. I also learned how to take panoramic pictures on my iphone to try and show off it's beauty. I'm not a fan of the distorting in panoramic shots, so if anyone knows how to prevent that, help a girl out!
I was looking for a grocery store that has been described as the Okinawa WalMart- a little bit of everything. I was ready to find what treasures hid in this magical store and wrote out directions I'd been given. They were better than typical Okinawa directions (turn when you get to the three soda machines by the purple flowers!) but they were wrong, and had me looking for the 33 instead of the 36. I never found the 33... instead, I found this:
|My panoramic. Seriously, anyone know how to make it not be distorted?|
