{points of two week #11: what a wonderful world}

Points of Two is an experiment in journaling with myself and Roben Marie! Check out our archives to see the previous weeks' pages.

Ugh! The internet ate this entire post! Good thing I saved things...

I was sitting in my favorite hole-in-the-wall cafe/bookstore when this song came on. Did you know there's an entire radio station devoted to coffee shop music? Anyway, a cover for Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World" came on and I knew it would be a great topic to journal on.

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies cry, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

My trip through farmland really opened my eyes to the difference
between expectation and reality, and how the former slides a veil over
our eyes to keep us from seeing the beauty in everyday. Sitting in
that cafe the next day, I realized even the smallest things helped
form this wonderful world we live in. The chipped white paint on the
sturdy table. The iced tea in my glass. The warm wind outside. The
freedom to be working on things in such a setting, being my own boss.

Once and awhile, we get a glimpse of just how amazing the world is. We
need to snatch it before we fall back asleep.
