We live to hear the slack-jawed gasping
We live under a halo of held breath
And when the children raise up a giant shield of laughter
It’s like they’re fending off death
And we can make something bigger
Then anyone of us alone
And then the clowns will take off their makeup
And the people will go home
Freakshow Ani Difranco
This song popped into my head today. It seemed oddly appropriate as Jon and I tear apart things at our house and celebrate the 4th of July. Things are moving so fast for us these days, but in a beautiful this is what we shoud be doing sort of way. Its amazing really.
So I hope that today you are celebrating your freedom and embracing it completely.
