On a day when I was in the midst of driving in our urban core, a small voice whispered, “Look Up!” And what I saw above the concrete jungle surrounding me was a small, beautiful patch of Hawaiian blue sky. This brief moment of awareness was just what I needed to keep me from falling into that gray space of mindlessly going about the business of the day. In that moment, I saw hope and it made me think of this song and smile…Blue Skies by Irving Berlin.
Blue skies looking at me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Bluebirds singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds from now on
I never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things goin’ so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you’re in love, my, my, how they fly
Blue days, all of them gone
Nothing but blue skies from now on
Next time you find yourself getting caught in the grayness, Look Up!
a hui hou…
