Day 2006: I Can’t See Clearly Now

Even though “I Can See Clearly Now” is one of my favorite songs, I can’t see clearly now.

I can see clearly, now, the original lyrics:

Here are new lyrics for “I Can’t See Clearly Now””

I can’t see clearly now

There’s darkness here.

So many obstacles in our way.

It seems like everyone is acting blind.

When’s the next bright (bright) bright (bright) sun-shiney day?

When’s the next bright (bright) bright (bright) sun-shiney day?

 

I hope we can make it now

The pain is here.

All of these bad feelings have reappeared

Where is the rainbow I’ve been praying for?

When’s the next bright (bright) bright (bright) sun-shiney day?

 

Look all around, I don’t see blue skies.

Look straight ahead, I’m sighing some blue sighs.

 

I can’t see clearly now

There’s darkness there.

So many obstacles in our way.

Where are the the people so humane and kind?

When’s the next bright (bright) bright (bright) sun-shiney day?

When’s the next bright (bright) bright (bright) sun-shiney day?

Can you see clearly, now, my other photos for today?

Even though there’s not much left to take from that kristindudish.com heart, there’s still inspiration there. Let’s take what we need wherever we can find it.

I can see gratitude clearly here, always.

  1. Bad day it was, Ann.

  2. The more I try to see, clearly, the more fogged up my vision is Ann. Does that make sense? I try to understand more, and in doing so, become more confused.

  3. Even though I’m not a Gemini (I’m skeptical regarding astrology which is such a Sagittarian thing) I’d love to attend that meditation class. And I love your rewrite of “I Can’t See Clearly Now”. It makes me think of March when I went to see Neil Gaiman. I hadn’t gotten my glasses yet and we were close to the back so I didn’t see Gaiman, I saw a pink blob wobbling over a podium.
    Most of his talk was about the importance of reading to children because higher literacy rates correlate with lower incarceration rates. He learned this while visiting a prison.
    My first reaction was to be cynical and think that the for-profit prison industry wants to cut funding for education and reduce literacy, but Gaiman, who’d been to a prison, kept his message positive. At the time I thought he was being naive, but now you’ve made me think that he simply didn’t see obstacles. That’s the value of keeping hope even in darkness.

  4. A most timely pastiche

  5. Thank you for starting my day with a song. Or two.

  6. I’ve been noticing more and more often that when I can’t see clearly it’s because my glasses are really really dirty.
