When the Lights Go On Again All Over the World

When the Lights Go On Again All Over the World

Composed during WWII, the song expresses the hopes for an end to the war. The lyrics were intended to paint a picture in the minds of listeners about how the world would begin again. I could not help but think how similar this was to the situation today in our fight against the global war on the coronavirus.

The picture was compiled from three photos--the dawn sky, the earth from space and the jar of lights. Each was masked separately and blending modes applied. The paper was reduced in color and bokeh were blended as an overlay.

When the lights go on again all over the world
And ships will sail again, all over the world
Then we'll have time for things
Like wedding rings
And free hearts will sing
When the lights go on again all over the world.
A poignant trio of images! I've never heard the song before...a dandy to bring back at a time when we all need hope! Superb art journaling, Helene!
Love the images the blending and the treatment the song is reminder to us all that things can only get better.
I'm so sure our world will never be the same, yet can't imagine which changes will be permanent. No more buffets? Love the hope of butterflies and your script in the lower left.
Love the great idea behind this page and so true, the corona virus is gripping us, I hope that all lamps will hopefully burn again soon, an awesome page!
I love this. Period. But let me also comment on the butterfly border. Exquisite. Thanks for an uplifting moment.
