This Is How We Learn

reading to unborn babyAs parents, we are the participants, and observers of an ever-evolving communication play with our children.

I find you in the morning
After dreams of distant signs
You pour yourself over me
Like the sun through the blinds

You lift me up and get me out
Keep me walking but never shout
“Hold the secret close”, I hear you say

Loosing all control
Every dream inside my soul
When ya kiss me on that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain’t this life so sweet

This years love it better last

Don’t ya know this life goes on
Won’t ya kiss me on that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain’t this life so sweet

The One About Ch Ch Ch Cha Changes

The One About Ch Ch Ch Cha Changes

“When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”
