When I sat down to write a new entry today I had no idea what I was going to write about. But just a few moments earlier I had been listening to some old songs and one of them was the song by Louie Armstrong titled What a Wonderful World. Guess I'm taking the "easy" way today by using another's talent for my blog entry. But to me this tune says oh so very much. The words ring so true. I hope you will enjoy the words of the song printed below.

"I see leaves of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I say to myself What a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and  clouds of white
The bright blessed day
And the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also  on the faces of people walking by
I see friends shaking hands saying How do you do?
They're really saying I love you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn so much that I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

Hope you all agree that this world is so beautiful and see that all of us need to work together to put an end to all the madness going on around us. May we all quickly learn that we are indeed ONE no matter what labels we attach to ourselves and to others. Together we can make this world even more beautiful. I now leave all of you with thoughts of perfect peace, perfect love, and perfect understanding. Be good to yourself and even better to others.

Namaste brother, what a wonderful world indeed. When I was a young lad, I never appreciated the world. I guess I was always moving too fast and doing too much. The older I get, the more I love this world.

I've learned more about what it really is.

I've learned to slow down to value it's beauty.

More than anything...... I have learned it resides within me, not without!

Thank you for bringing this song to our collective attention Ron, it always chokes me up when I hear Louis belt it out. By the way, I love the way you bring old memories to the forefront, not a cop out at all, real thoughts, feelings and emotions live and resonate forever.

In Lak' ech, prosper with love.... live with musical truth....

Hey Christopher. Glad you liked seeing that golden oldie again. I was the same way, in my youth too busy trying to make a "name" for myself to really slow down and view the world as the gem it truly is. And I agree, it does live within and not outside of myself. I suppose this world forces a little wisdom on us as we age, if we want it to or not! Have a good one my friend! Thanks for stopping in.
