Lightly child, lightly.

Nothing ever done.

Sure, sure, sure.

Today I will walk in the sun.

I will simply walk in the sun.

~ Charles Bukowski, from “a letter to Ann Bauman,“ Screams From The Balcony: Selected Letters 1960 – 1970

      Great image, think we might see the sun today!! I think that perhaps “Greg Camp” must have read those words of “Charles Bukowski”. “Greg Camp” ” is an American Grammy Award-nominated songwriter, guitarist, and vocalist. He is best known as the founding guitarist and songwriter for the rock band Smash Mouth. (1994–2008, 2009–2011)[1][2] Camp is credited as the primary songwriter,[1] whose songs helped to catapult the band to acclaim with hit songs, awards, and multi-platinum albums.[3] Camp left Smash Mouth after 16 years and has remained an active songwriter and music producer to date.[3]” *via of Wikipedia*
      This song I love because it has a good beat, is fun, the video is campy like a throwback to 1960’s Beach movies and it sounds like a harpsichord is playing on the track reminding me of “The Adams Family”
      Hope you enjoy Smash Mouth’s hit fro 1997 “Walkin’ on the Sun”, “its a love attack…you might as well be walkin’ on the sun”…

    The Solar Mass Ejection Imager (SMEI) site at NSO offers whole-sky images and animations from the SMEI instrument on-board the Coriolis spacecraft perhaps the Data and Images Tab might glean some photos?
