The 07/13/13 Joy Jar

13 Jul

Today was a glorious summer day and it made moi think about the Nat King Cole song, ‘Those Lazy Hazy Crazy Days Of Summer’:

-artist: nat king cole
-peak billboard position # 6 in 1963
-words by charles tobias and music by hans carste

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now you’re set
And on the beach you’ll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get em wet….

This is truly a lazy, but not crazy summer. Although moi is busy, there is time to relax. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is summer relaxation.

Your mind will answer most questions if you learn to relax and wait for the answer.
William S. Burroughs

Relax and move with the flow of life by being unafraid of change.
