Seasons Change and So Do We

A song-filled follow up to my earlier Autumn post:

-- That post was on the passage of time + intro to courageous Joan Chittister, who’s not afraid to speak TRUTH to power.

This post offers song about the passage of time...

First, a reflection from another blogger and then some appropriate tunes to mark the passing of the season…

From another blogger…

Tunes about the Changing of the Seasons

--A commenter said, “My heart still aches when I listen to this song. It was my lullaby as a child. Thanks mom for making sure I turned into the best man I could be.”

--Singing in NYC in 2012 at age 93, Pete on his 12-string shares for the first time 5 new verses that were written by his wife for their young children.

“It's the same story the crow told me; it's the only one he knows.

Like the morning sun you come and like the wind you go.

Ain't no time to hate, barely time to wait,

Wo, oh, what I want to know, where does the time go?”

“The wheel is turning and you can't slow down

You can't let go and you can't hold on

You can't go back and you can't stand still

If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will”

“Small wheel turning by the fire and rod

Big wheel turning by the grace of God

Every time that wheel turn 'round

Bound to cover just a little more ground”

“What goes up must come down…” Life is never static. It’s like a sine wave. If it weren’t, you’d be a “flatliner”

--when the ups and downs stop………………………“Game over…”

BS&T “Spinning Wheel” reflections:

Are you just focusing on your problems…or willing to let go for a while and take a ride on a spinning pony? Kinda echoes Joni’s song.

The following lyrics suggest that a change is needed in the way we’ve been doing the wheel…

“Did you find a directing sign on the straight and narrow highway?

Would you mind a reflecting sign?

Just let it shine within your mind

And show you the colors that are real”

-- This gentile discovers truth & beauty in this moving celebration of life - just as it is unfolding...

Here’s another post on the passage of time:

Peace, tOM
