Day 1929: If I Ruled the World

If I ruled the world

Every day would be the first day of spring,

Every heart would have a new song to sing

And we’d sing of the joy every morning would bring.

If I ruled the world

Everyone would be as free as a bird,

Every voice would be a voice to be heard,

Take my word we would treasure each day that occurred.

My world would be a beautiful place

Where we would weave such wonderful dreams.

My world would wear a smile on its face

Like the man in the moon has when the moon beams.

If I ruled the world

Everyone would say the world was their friend,

There’d be happiness that no one could end

No, my friend, not if I ruled the world.

Every head would be held up high

There’d be sunshine in everyone’s sky

If the day ever dawned when I ruled the world.   — Lesley Bricusse and Cyril Ornadel

If I ruled the world

Every blog would have a wonderful song

You’d be free to dance and/or sing along

Groups would help each person feel much more strong.

Different people would know that they belong.

Wearing goofy socks would never be wrong.

What would happen if you ruled the world?

No matter who rules the world, gratitude rules!

Day 1582: The Best

Was this the best photo I took yesterday?

Or was the best photo from yesterday one of these?

 Did you know that a lot of the best photos in this blog lately are from my quest to find the best house near water for me, Michael, and Aaron (when he’s not at the best school in Edinburgh, Scotland)? We may have found the best place yesterday.  However, the best  is very hard to determine when you know that something better may very well show up in the future. How do you choose  the best for you when it’s very possible that the best is yet to come?

The best we can do, I suppose, is decide whether we’ve found something that’s great enough.

If you share your thoughts and feelings about how you know what’s best (or great enough), that would be the best!

The best  I could do right now would be to share  the best live version of “The Best is Yet to Come” I found on YouTube this morning.

 

The best way to finish this post would be to repeat this:

The best thanks to all the best creatures who helped me create this post and to you — of course! — for being the best.
