Energy Musings.  Here. Now.

Today.

Sometimes, all you need is a song.  Today, I offer you this one from Natalie Merchant.

“Carnival”

I’ve walked these streets A virtual stage It seemed to me Make up on their faces Actors took their Places next to me

I’ve walked these streets In a carnival Of sights to see All the cheap thrill seekers The vendors & the dealers They crowded around me

Have I been blind Have I been lost Inside myself and My own mind Hypnotized Mesmerized By what my eyes have seen?

I’ve walked these streets In a spectacle of wealth & poverty In the diamond market The scarlet welcome carpet That they just rolled out for me

I’ve walked these streets In the mad house asylum They can be Where a wild eyed misfit prophet On a traffic island stopped And he raved of saving me

Have I been blind Have I been lost Inside myself and My own mind Hypnotized Mesmerized By what my eyes have seen?

Have I been wrong Have I been wise To shut my eyes And play along Hypnotized Paralyzed By what my eyes have found By what my eyes have seen What they have seen?

Have I been blind Have I been lost Have I been wrong Have I been wise Have I been strong Have I been Hypnotized Mesmerized By what my eyes have found In that great street carnival In that carnival?

Energy Musings. Here. Now. Today! Its a new year, and the beginning of a new cycle.  Mindful of course, that we are continuously cycling so to consider starting and ending points is somewhat arbitrary
