Things we forget

To be honest, sometimes we feel really hypocritical. Here we are, writing and performing songs that (hopefully) inspire people to their own greatness – and what do we do most of the time? Work too much, laugh too little and complain about things over which we have no control.

They say admitting you have a problem is the first step, right?

This was really the impetus behind writing Love Can Change the World. These lines from the second verse sum up our realization that, most of the time, we’re just not paying attention:

I see the world in black and white, and rarely hear the gray

I don’t take time to read the lines, and then I turn the page

I came across a great blog the other day, Things We Forget: Post it Notes Left to their Fate in Public Places.  Its a series of post it note drawings and reminders of the little things we forget when we go about our daily lives of well intentioned busyness.

Here’s today’s entry. What a powerful reminder.

Just this afternoon I also saw a quote on the Festival of Enlightenment’s Facebook page.

“The real measure of your wealth is how much you’d be worth if you lost all your money.” – unknown

Tonight we celebrate Greg’s daughter’s birthday, and you can be sure we’ll be paying attention – with laughter among family and friends, gratefulness for good health and the warmth of our home, and lots and lots of love.

Because, Love Can Change the World.
