"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair."

Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Recently, Eileen and I watched a Festivus clip to see if this holiday celebration was appropriate for a December gathering with some friends.

Then, I read this next article that, while it has a lot of humor, manages to add a healthy dose of good mental health perspectives…some of which reminded me of the wisdom contained in traditions like Buddhism and the 12 Steps.

String Cheese Incident- Joyful Sound (HD) 7/3/2009 (15:19)

"Take time to give thanks

Make time to be given

I'm going to stop and think twice

About the way that I'm living

Did I say a kind word

Am I proud of my actions

You know a job well done

Gives me satisfaction

Can I earn your trust

Your love and affection

Just one step at a time

In the right direction

Going to aim for the sky

Keep my feet on the ground

Raise my voice to the heavens

Make a joyful sound

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa....

Make a joyful sound

Can I sing for my supper

And play for my rent

I know it sounds funny

But it's how my time's spent

Greet everyday with full purpose

With passion and pride

I'm going to follow my heart

And have nothing to hide

A moment of insight

I know why I'm here

You know when the time just stops

See it all real clear

I've got to set an example

Make some mischief and fun

Do unto others and

Play a fat bass run

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa....

Make a joyful sound I got to work hard everyday

And give it my best

Grab hold of fear and negativity

And lay them to rest

I know my time here's important

Can I do the right thing?

Practice patience and forgiveness

Feel the joy that they bring

Can I lay down tonight

Without feeling regret?

I know the love that I give

Becomes the love that I get

Well do you hear what I'm saying

Making sense to you?

Well if you feel it in your heart

Then you might want to sing too

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa....

Make a joyful sound

I don't want to sound preachy

Make you feel all wrong

Just want to write some kind lyrics

Sing a feel good song

It's kind of hard to explain

It is just a feeling I get

From making music making love

Getting both feet wet

Well every piece to the puzzle

Snapped tight to the groove

I Close my eyes breathe deeply and

Let my feet move

You know I feel a little better

Now for speaking my mind

Good vibes in circulation and

See who they find

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa....

Make a joyful sound"
