Subdivisions...

Got my ticket for the Rush 'Time Machine' tour in May at the Sheffield Arena: over 30 years of hard rocking and a full play through of 'Moving Pictures': it's going to be loud...

One of my favourite Rush tracks is called 'Subdivisions'...

There are plenty of amazing aerial images of the various Subdivisions of cities in the USA on Chris Gielen's TWISTED SIFTER blog. Here's one from Florida...
And here, for your musical education (because this blog isn't just about geography you know...) are Rush performing the song live as part of the R30 tour...



Lyrics by Neil Peart - plenty of geography here...

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In between the bright lights
And the far unlit unknown...
