I'm working on a fun project that has me exploring some kinda random subjects... such as Junior High!!!
Most of what I remember about junior high is that it was awful.
But the other day I was thinking about junior high in more depth because of this project... And one thing I very fondly remember about Junior High is all the songs I STILL know from being in choir!!
One of my very favorite songs that we sang was a musical rendition of a poem by one of my favorite poets...
i thank you god
for most this amazing day
for the leaping greenly spirits of tress
for the true blue dream of sky
and for everything which is natural
which is infinite
which is yes
i who have died am alive again today
for this is the sun's birthday
this is the birthday of life and of love and wings
and of the gay, great happening illimitably earth
how could tasting
in the know of all nothing
human merely being doubt
now the ears of my ears awake
now the eyes of my eyes are opened
But on the other end of the spectrum all the Disney songs have served me well over the years, too. Except that my family doesn't want to watch any of the 90s Disney releases with me because I can't help but sing along :p
So, anyway, Thanks, Mr. Glenn! You taught me a great repertoire!
