created in cs5

I know EVERYONE and their uncle uses this stock - but I wanted to do something for a special friend by the name of Maria. She knows who she is!

Claudia

if you never saw "Paint Your Wagons" - it's a classic in American Musical Theatre

The song lyrics below

Way out west, they got a name
For rain and wind and fire
The rain is Tess, the fire's joe and
They call the wind Mariah

O no, Mariah blows the stars around
And sends the clouds a-flying
Mariah makes the mountain sounds
Like folks were up there dying
Mariah, They call the wind Mariah

Now before I knew Mariahs name
And heard her wail and whining
I had a girl and she had me
And the sun was always shining
O, but then one day I left my girl
I left her far behind me
And now I'm lost, I'm oh so lost
Not even God can find me
Lyrics provided by [link]
Source - [link]

Mariah, O, Mariah, They call the wind Mariah
I hear they got a name for rain
And wind and fire only
But when you're lost and all alone
There ain't no words but lonely
And I'm a lost and lonely man
Without a star to guide me
Mariah, blow your love to me
I need my girl beside me
He, Mariah, O, Mariah
I'm lonely can't you see
Mariah, O, Mariah
Please blow my love to me
Mariah, blow my love to me

written by the famous songwriting team of Lerner & Lowe

i truely...truely love this piece....it means so much to me.....my childhood best friend was named Mariah....she passed away in Novemeber of 2010 from an accidental K2 overdose. I miss her and think of her everyday, and to see a picture like this, it makes me want to cry and smile at the same time. I really do appreciate you posting this, because it means so much to me. Thank you :) from myself, and Mariah...

Ps. I love how you had the wind and the girl blend together. it really looks as if Mariah is the wind~

My best friend's name is Mariah. This is her theme song, lol :) Especially since she has a special connection with the wind. If she focuses really hard she can change its speed, and one time she got it to lift her up. I've seen it happen :D
