~*Day 19 of 365*~
"Little Boxes"

Okay, so it's been a little minute since I've posted anything on this here blog...  4 Months worth of little minutes, to be exact.  I fully plan on having 365 days worth of blog entries.  It might take me 4 years, but IT SHALL BE DONE!! :)
So, I was listening to the trusty internet radio last night and was delighted to hear Pete Seeger's "Little Boxes" begin to play.  Sometimes we can forget the efficiency of simplicity and a solid observation.
This song has 2 chords, and a pretty awesome statement. I find the repetitive nature of life can get us down sometimes.  We are not all the same. And that's okay. Seriously.  Maybe that was what was wanted in the 50s, but we are so past that. I am grateful to be living in this time period, no matter what political, economical issues are happening.  Be different. Get out of the box.  Don't let predetermined notions of what you "SHOULD do," completely shape you... Be a Cone on the Hillside, or a sphere...
Whatever it is, love it.
Hearts to you all and Happy Green Friday.
Shop local. It's less stressful.
And you feel better about yourself afterwards.
