Let’s Go Fly a Kite

Lyrics from “Mary Poppins”
Composed by Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman

With tuppence for paper and strings
You can have your own set of wings
With your feet on the ground
You’re a bird in flight
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh
Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let’s go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite

Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let’s go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite

When you send it flying up there
All at once you’re lighter than air
You can dance on the breeze over houses and trees
With your fist holding tight
To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh
Let’s go fly a kite
Up to the highest height
Let’s go fly a kite
And send it soaring
Up through the atmosphere
Up where the air is clear
Oh, let’s go fly a kite

The Best Laid Plans…

‘The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.’

No matter how carefully a project is planned, something may still go wrong with it. The saying is adapted from a line in “To a Mouse,” by Robert Burns : “The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men / Gang aft a-gley.”   Dictionary.com

 


Well, we had to scrap our camping trip. It has been raining up in these parts for days on end. The satellite shows a hug band of rain headed for West Jefferson, NC. The rain will start this afternoon and continue until tomorrow. Not the ideal camping weather. I don’t mind being cold, but I do mind being wet.

Big fat bummer.

But I had a great time yesterday visiting my old school. I spent two hours just wandering the halls, talking to colleagues, and being introduced to the students as “the very first dance teacher” at the school. I felt like a bit of a celebrity. I’ve been gone for 9 years, so of course, all the students I knew have been gone for a few years.

It felt nostalgic and sad, but inspiring at the same time. The school is still vibrant with color and sound. The students and staff seem happy. It’s just as I remembered.
