It's days like today ..
When I'm sitting alone in the solace of my home ..
Without the din of my everyday chores ..
Without my kids and all their friends..
Hovering around me like a flock of sheep ..
That I have learned to listen to the silence of the universe and bow before providence ..
That is mine in all abundance ..
I have realised that I know nothing of the world yet ..
And though I have lived long enough and think I know quite a lot ..
Realised that , that is far from the truth ..
I have always felt I can figure people out ..
Without a doubt..
But that is my greatest folly ..
So after I have stumbled and bumbled and made a complete mess ...
I have now lately realised ..
That because I'm volatile ,impulsive and unpredictable ..
More often than not ..
Find my self sitting on the highest branch of a tree ..
Wondering how on earth this came to be ..
But when you right up there ..
Taking in the fresh air ..
That's when I can see clearly, all my crazy fun times and stupid follies ..
Follies I try and erase from my elephantine memory ..
And as for my fun times..
I do something , that according to me is both sweet and silly ..
"Happy stones" ..
I pick one every time ...
I'm just bursting with joy..
And it just the nicest thing to do ..
I search for colours ,shapes and textures...
Because that's how moments in life are ..
Bursts of joy ..
Bursts of light ..
And sometimes .. Just a crinkle on my nose ..
And a twinkle in my eye, or maybe just a half-smile, that's gonna give the musings in my mind away ..
But I love to collect stones and sea-shells ..
That now, I know so well ..
Because they are little pieces of this vast universe branded with memories of mine..
That I have collected at different times ..
And sometimes , when I'm having a bad day ..
I just run my hands over my happy stones .....
And I know my life will always be more than just a SUPERCALIFLAGILISTICEXPIALIDOCIOUS DAY...
P.S. I love this song, feel like it was written for me..ha ha ha
