"let your boat of life be light, packed with only
what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, someone to love and someone to love you,
enough to eat and enough to wear
and a little more than enough to drink:
for thirst is a dangerous thing"

a bit of nostalgia for a thursday...

I am not a terribly nostalgic person
and I don't hanker over things that happened in the past
or talk about how things used to be in the past
but lately listening to what is going on in our city, what conditions
people are living under in Mannenberg and Grassy Park, children
getting killed, children not being able to stand near a window in their own homes,
drugs, policemen getting killed, the stories of what happens in the schools
It is all so very sad and depressing

I saw this snippet on Facebook yesterday
It is such a wonderful anthem
for life
and made me a bit nostalgic
and left me wondering why it is impossible for this world 
to be filled with love 

Did you spot a boy in the choir who looked like Mr Bean?
