Day 1290: Take me to the world

Since I was taken to a hospital room three days ago and attached to I.V. antibiotics  and oxygen, it makes sense that I might ask somebody to

Take me to the world!

My laptop computer, which I took with me to the Emergency Room on Sunday, takes me to the world. This is the song that was playing right before I started creating this post, which took me to the world.

Here are  lyrics from Stephen Sondheim’s “Take Me to the World” that I’d like to take to the world:

Let me see the world with clouds
Take me to the world
Out where I can push through crowds
Take me to the world

A world that smiles
With streets instead of aisles
Where I can walk for miles with you

Take me to the world that’s real
Show me how it’s done
Teach me how to laugh, to feel
Move me to the sun

Just hold my hand whenever we arrive
Take me to the world where I can be alive

Let me see the world that smiles
Take me to the world
Somewhere I can walk for miles
Take me to the world

With all around things growing in the ground
Where birds that make a sound are birds

Let me see the world that’s real
Teach me how to laugh, to feel
We could laugh together
Move me to the sun

Just hold my hand whenever we arrive
Take me to the world where I can be alive

Do you want the world?
Why then, you shall have the world
Ask me for the world again
You shall have the world

A world of skies
That’s bursting with surprise
To open up your eyes for joy

We shall see the world come true
We shall have the world
I won’t be afraid with you
We shall have the world
You’ll hold my hand and know you’re not alone

You shall have the world to keep
Such a lovely world you’ll weep
We shall have the world forever for our own

Here are  photos from my hospital room that I want to take to the world, here and now:

Any comments you’d like to take to the world?

Thanks to Stephen Sondheim, Evening Primrose Theresa McCarthey and Neil Patrick Harris, the caring staff at Tufts Medical Center,  my friend Megan for the flowers, and you — of course! — for taking me to the world with your presence, today.
