BEFORE I DIE

To walk the starlit desert; chase dolphins in oceans deep

To climb with friends to glorious views; atop a mountains' peak

To sit by roaring fire with my Airedale at my feet

To read the word and fret no more; my soul finding peace

 

To stand upon the stormy shore; as wind waves spirits roar

To heed adventurers calls of old; cross seas to foreign shores

To lie in shade of old oak tree; beside the one who's mine

In English riverside meadow; letting summer fill my mind

 

All this I have to do

All this I have to do

All this I have to do

Before I die

 

To walk in smell and squalor; helping poorest of the poor

To give until it hurts and then; to give some more

To stand against the bully; protecting poor and weak

To be without the safety net of; all the world says seek

 

To overcome my naysayers; by stepping anyhow

To never be the one to take; Machiavelian fawning bow

And whether rich or poor to have love shine out from my eyes

Letting laughter treat adventures; akin the tides

 

All this I have to do

All this I have to do

All this I have to do

Before I die

MAKING CRAZY WORK

In June 1884 two engineers, Emile Nouguier and Maurice Koechlin had the idea for very tall tower - 300 metres / 1.000 feet,.

In 1887 a competition for buildings to mark the 1889 World Fair - the 100th Anniversary of the French Revolution - drew 107 entries.

Emile and Maurice's idea - as Chief Engineers for Gustave Eiffel's company, along with Architect Stephen Sauvestre's involvement, won.

Two years and five days from construction start the tower was completed.

The Tower was chastised vehemently by the arts community of Paris during construction.

2 million people visited it at the Great Fair in 1889.

Around 300 million have visited since.

Anything's possible...
