title Knocking On Heavens Door
date11/12/2004 9:12:39 AM
detailsI created (and posted) this last year for my friend Kathy who passed away at the early age of 56 from breast cancer. She is deeply missed by many.

Mama take this badge from me
I can't use it anymore
It's getting dark too dark to see
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door

Mama put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
That cold black cloud is comin' down
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door

~a fine tribute for your friend. I have an aunt who has battled breats cancer for some time now as well as a good friend who's mother has fought the fight for some time, both survivors...the song is one of my favs, especially when Jerry Garcia used to sing it live at Dead shows...Jerry was always knockin' on that door, quite ironic when he was the lead singer for it...well done~

excellent Claudi, Bob is one of my favs. I'm sorry for your friend. this is great tribute and a good post for the contest. I love that "she" is going "out" feet first, the opposite of coming into this world.

Claudia, this is fits the song very well. The toe tag illustrates death very well. I'm sorry your friend is gone. But she now exists, I believe, in a much better realm. Take care. Barb.

I remember this, Claudie when you first posted it and if I remember correctly, you added a little something to it from when it was posted then. Very creative and touching.

Good tribute Claudia. Nice effect and maybe the best contest theme so far.
15 KateWossner (keep on truckin')   (11/12/2004 6:10:44 PM)
Oh goodness, Claudia! I am so sorry about Kathy, we need to find the cure! Very touching words...Picture disturbs me, but that because it has impact. Nice work!

Emotional impact...
17 Kim Adams (Let's go Cardinals! )   (11/13/2004 8:50:39 AM)
this photo has alot of impact for me Claudie. nice tribute to your friend.
18 Brian Watters   (11/13/2004 1:06:33 PM)
Claudia, this is a touching, tasteful, very and suitable tribute to a friend lost to breast cancer, and I think "Knocking on Heavens Door", was a perfect match for the imagery.
I don't know anyone who has breast Cancer, though I may be wrong about that, as cancer is a very personal decease that literally eats away at you, and some may prefer to suffer in secrecy, which would be a very lonely and sad way to go.
I hope you don't mind, but this image, story, and music reference, had such a great emotional impact on me, that I let directions on my recent contest submission, for anyone who may have missed it to visit this URL and give it a viewing.
Sincerely, Brian D. Watters

Claudia, this is awesome, and an apt tribute to a dear friend.
BTW, Marty can be a prat at times.
20 mrgetz (Thinkyouneek )   (11/13/2004 5:01:55 PM)
Prat?
21 Brian Watters   (11/13/2004 6:02:28 PM)
I understand your confusion Marty, she obviously hit the "P" by mistake. <Grin> just kidding of course. Been drinking too much of that instant water lately, and it's affecting my senses. :)
Brian

#21 Brian Watters: She?
23 Brian Watters   (11/13/2004 10:06:13 PM)
See, even I can make typo's Marty. :)
24 Les McLean (**** ))   (11/14/2004 1:37:42 PM)
#21 Brian Watters: I think I must have it the 'r' by mistake ;-)
25 Stephen Bonk   (11/14/2004 7:59:59 PM)
This is very nice Claudia. A very nice tribute. I have to say I like the Guns N Roses version of this song best.
26 Laurel Austin   (12/19/2004 8:40:56 AM)
meaningful and well done Claudia
27 Tyler Somes   (3/26/2005 11:55:49 AM)
One of my favorite songs. Good image, although it is far from representing the emotion and mood conveyed by Dylan.
