Waiting to Conquer.

This is a rendition of the Rolling Stones classic, Ruby Tuesday, performed by an American musician with whom I had some correspondence once. It’s a very soft, somewhat ethereal version which I find likeable, though not spectacular. What interests me more is her choice of pictures in the video collage.

It’s clearly a celebration of the budding and blooming maiden archetype, along with an evocation of the road of life and the process of passing. (It was recorded shortly after a young woman friend of hers died.) What really fascinates me is the image at 1.40. If that isn’t latent feminine power just waiting for time to provide the opportunity to break a few men’s hearts and spirits, I don’t know what is.
