Where Peaceful Waters Flow

Restless hearts, it has been along time,
Out here on the journey, for a glimpse of paradise,
It’s getting hard to find a place to go,
Where peaceful water flow.

— Chris de Burgh

A New Dawn

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Reeds driftin’ on by
You know how I feel

It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good

A new day and a new year for me today 🙂

A Walk In the Park

A walk in the park
Away from all the busy streets of my mind
I seek a straighter path
I seek a shady glade in which to unwind

— Nick Straker

No Dogs Dancing?


Life is one big road with lots of signs.
So when you’re  riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind.
Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy.
Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality.
Wake Up and Live!

– Bob Marley

The Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sign Says. Well, I’ve always wondered about this one…

Things Are Looking Up


Things are looking up

I’ve been looking the landscape over

And it’s covered with four-leafed clover

Oh things are looking up

Since love looked up at me

– Ira Gershwin

The Beauty of Gray

This is not a black and white world
To be alive
I say the colors must swirl
And I believe
That maybe today
We will all get to appreciate
The beauty of gray

– Ed Kowalczyk

Autumn has suddenly set in with a vengeance, and the hills have disappeared in swirly clouds of fog. Jakesprinter‘s challenge: Autumn.

Here Comes the Sun

If the big sun won’t come out, we’ll just have to make the most of the small ones!

Little darling,
I feel that ice is slowly melting.
Little darling,
it seems like years since it’s been clear.
Here comes the sun.
Here comes the sun,
and I say
it’s all right.

George Harrison

Life Could Be a Dream

Oh, life could be a dream
If I could take you up in paradise up above
If you would tell me I’m the only one that you love
Life could be a dream sweetheart

Randy Newman

Why does turquoise water spell paradise?

Rise and Shine

So I just did me some talkin’ to the sun
And I said I didn’t like the way he got things done,
Sleepin’ on the job,
Those raindrops are fallin’ on my head, they keep fallen’,
But there’s one thing I know:
The blues they send to meet me won’t defeat me;
It won’t be long till happiness steps up to greet me.

– B.J.Thomas
