John Williamson singing Cootamundra Wattle.
On this Monday with only two days to go to winter I came across a picture of Cootamundra Wattle and listened again to this very beautiful song - I was going to wait until July to share it with you but "Carpe Diem" - I am seizing the day and sharing it now.
The words and music are by John Williamson and the song and lyrics are something that always - without fail, brings me to tears - I am misty eyed as I type.
There are certainly days for me when I wish the world would stop and times when i do think that life has passed me by - and I guess there are wounds that will never heal.
I have given up buying the daily papers because I too believe that good news never made a paper sell and I want to spread as much joy in my little corner of the world as I can.
There's all the colours of the rainbow in the garden, woman,
And symphonies of music in the sky.
Heaven's all around us if you're looking,
But how can you see it if you cry.
These are my favourite words from the song and I try to look around and see the beauty that is there, try to dance on the wind and soar on the stars.
Please listen to Williamson sing this song and let it bring peace and warmth to your heart in a troubled world.
Wattle blossoms are beautiful and the Golden Wattle is our National floral emblem:
There is beauty all around us and we need to be the change we want to see in the world. Be a little kinder, not only to people but to our earth - enjoy all the rainbows in the garden, all the symphonies in the sky, wipe your tears and see the beauty in our world.
Be strong, be brave and "seize the day" - don't miss a moment of living, be sure to live life to the full and come back and visit "The Musings from My Heart" - take the journey with me - paint on your canvas and share your images with the world.
I am seizing my second chance at life with thanks for 515 days since transplant - alive and living well.
Love and hugs from a very pensive heart.
