Troubles to left of me worries to the right
I’ll stick to the middle ground and roll towards the light
I’ll keep on moving till I’m nowhere sight
And I’ll keep burning your flame when they turn down the lights
Talk to the sea about me and ask, why, I’m, falling upwards into the sky
The wheels have started turning, running through my mind
Today I’m gonna board that train and leave it all behind
I’m leaving home, towards that open road
Putting all my troubles aside and I’m gonna keep on moving
Talk to the sea about and ask, why, I’m, falling upwards into the sky
Cloudy with bits of sun and rain.
Spent the morning with the Platts and went for a tapas lunch in Muswell Hill, then on to our friend Loretta’s for a bbq. Great to hang out with her, her sister Natasha and her husband Craig - they’re all musicians and great fun.
Who/what inspired you?
A conversation about moving on through hard times and not seeing them as a bad thing but a necessary thing to shape who you are. We chatted about the Richard Rohr book falling upwards and it resonated.
Not looking back in a negative way and always learning and keeping moving.
