kate5kiwis: it's a beautiful day...


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

it's a beautiful day...

we've woken up to another blue-skied day...
(gotta get to the beach)
and the boys have put on our friends' DVD of
U2 GO HOME: Live From Slane Castle

Beautiful Day
The heart is a bloom
Shoots up through the stony ground
There's no room
No space to rent in this town
You're out of luck
And the reason that you had to care
The traffic is stuck
And you're not moving anywhere
You thought you'd found a friend
To take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand
In return for grace
It's a beautiful day
Sky falls, you feel like
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
You're on the road
But you've got no destination
You're in the mud
In the maze of her imagination
You love this town
Even if that doesn't ring true
You've been all over
And it's been all over you
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day

whenever I hear this U2 song, it flashes my memory to
our friends in phnom penh and the sound track to their life and work,
the fabulous weekends with our kiwimates in sydney,
my brother and my nearly-sister-in-law in london,
our family and friends all over new zealand,
and i know it's a beautiful day.
