"And I think to myself.....what a wonderful world"
It's rather hard to see it that way these days, isn't it? The world.....this awesome, gigantic, wonderful world that we live in, isn't always a perfect one.
Sometimes I want to go to the farthest corner of the universe. Outer space. Or, an island, or just a remote beautiful place, and sit there, and stare at beautiful colors in the sky and ocean tides rolling in. But I know deep down, that no matter where we are, there we will be. If that makes any sense at all. Everything we are and have within, goes with us wherever we go. It wouldn't erase what happened in Boston, or Sandy Hook CT, or any of these other senseless tragedies that seem to happen, that I wish wouldn't.
They bring a fair amount of perspective though. I don't complain about much anyway, but you can bet that I especially don't after something like what happened in Boston occurs.
I would be thrilled if I were a cape wearing superhero that could save us from all of this tragedy. But even Superman gets sad sometimes.
So, since I don't have all of the answers. I'lll defer back to Louis Armstrong. I do still see" skies of blue..... and clouds of white. Bright blessed days....dark sacred nights"
And I still think to myself. What a Wonderful World.
Keep the faith Boston.
And you too, friend.
See you soon,
PS Breakfast on the patio has been awfully quiet these last few days. But the birds still sing, and the sun still rises, so there's hope. Always.
