    Sorry but I'm chillin'
     
    Today I'm enjoying Lamb's Fear of Fours and especially Little Things:
      There's so many things that we miss in our everyday lives
      We're so busy hustling, bustling chasing far away dreams
      We forget the little things
      Like blue skies, green eyes and our babies growing
      Like rainbows, fresh snow and the smell of summer
      We forget to live.

      Give us eyes like children so we live each day as others
      We're so sure we know so much that we forget to listen
      Then we wander freckle faced
      Like cheap thrills bad spill and constant consumption
      Like TV, CDs and cars that speak our names
      We forget to live.
    I wanted to translate those words into a talk for tomorrow's assembly on 'Choices' ... but it was either too obvious or too much like hard work, so instead I'm chillin' and they're getting a John Bell Meditation instead. Which will be equally edifying if not quite so drum'n'bass.
