better people

if you are the least bit glum saying so-long to summer, here's a bit of brightness to put a bounce in your step and hope in your heart as the new season awesomely falls about us ... and children of the world embark on a new year of learning ...

thanks to my niece for sharing with my husband, who kindly introduced me today to this song and artist ... i needed this!



happy labor day friends, may we all be better people with xavier rudd ...




people saving whales
and giving your thanks to our seas
my respect to the ones in the forest
standing up for our old trees

them giving food to the hungry
giving hope to the needy
giving life to a baby, giving care for free
'cause there is freedom around us

we have everything we need and i will care for you
'cause you care for me
and we all have opinions, some of them get through
but there's better people with more good to do, good to do

what i have could be a message
or just some words from my heart
my respect to the ones making changes
for all the lives they'll give their all

like giving food to the hungry
giving hope to the needy
giving life to a baby, giving care for free
'cause there is freedom around us

we have everything we need and i will care for you
'cause you cared for me
and we all have opinions, some of them get through
but there's better people with more good to do, good to do

when our world keeps spinning round and round it goes
mother nature keeps spreading its disease
and our children keep growing up with
what they know through what we teach and what they see

and so only a question of the time we have
and the lives our children need
as they can only keep growing up with
what they know through what we teach and what they see

like giving food to the hungry
giving hope to the needy
giving life to a baby, giving care for free
'cause there is freedom around us

we have everything we need and i will care for you
'cause you care for me
we all have opinions, some of them get through
but there's better people with more good to do, good to do,
oh good to do


from his white moth album ...

Prairie Girl,

Your Dad nicknamed you perfectly because you are 'completely sweet'!

This song/artist introduction could not have came at a better time. I am in the middle of writing a philosophy for a new surf start-up company, and after listening to this, I am inspired.

Bisous,
Melissa

I just stumbled upon your blog through Mel and instantly liked it. Thanks for the beautiful song. It just fit prefectly into my mood this morning. We live in a tiny village right in the center of Germany and thanks to blogging I can meet all these nice people around the globe and feel like being part of one world. Will stop by again. Have a nice week

A wonderful post and beautiful song! I agree there is goodness in all of us. Some are afraid of showing it or it is buried so deep waiting to be discovered. Enjoy your golden day! xoxo

Mel said...
