the sky is blue, the valley low, the river wide,
these simple things i've learned don't give a clue to answer why
the only thing that i know is
i don't know a thing.
first of all, lucy schwartz is adorable. on top of that, her songs are just poppy enough that you're pretty close to writing her off as just a sweet little thing. but there's something about her that makes you listen a second time... and then you just might be hooked.
i think there's a point (or more than one maybe?) in all of our lives when we realize that the only thing we're really sure of is that we have no freaking clue. in these moments, i try to take some comfort in the fact that this may just be a sign of wisdom, but usually that feels pretty cheap and you just want to know the answers. i have always liked answers; knowing what's going to happen next.
there was a time when it became necessary for me to work very hard at feeling comfortable with not always knowing the answers. it was painful, and it was scary, and i am thankful every day that i worked at it with so much determination. my acceptance of not always knowing why? or what next? is one of the main things that now allows me to embrace these moments, to welcome the unknown, and to enjoy my wonderful life.
where are we going?
