I Can See Clearly Now

This has been a favorite song of mine for a long time.  Last year I had a new experience with this song as a way to end a church service.  We were circled up around the chairs and as we sang we moved to the music, smiled at each other and even giggled a little.  We actually sang it three or four times, it felt so good.  The music ended in hugs as the service ended.  I believe with all my heart that life is not intended to be all struggle.  There are moments of clarity for all of us that need to be celebrated.

So, go ahead and sing.  “I can see clearly now the rain is gone…”  Allow the music to make you smile and even dance a little if you are so inclined.

“ Inspiration more often comes during the work than before it, because the largest part of the job of an artist is to listen to the work.” —  – Madeleine L’Engle, Author  [Source:http://www.guideposts.org/inspirational-quotes/creativity]

“I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.”  ‘Cosmic Religion: With Other Opinions and Aphorisms’ 1931, p. 97  Author: Einstein, Albert [Source:  http://www.sourcedquotes.com/Imagination-quotes]

You may recognize the title of this post as words from the Bible (Psalm 8:3 KJV).  Looking up at the night sky has inspired poets, artists, philosophers, theologians, musicians, scientists and other dreamers since time began.  Technology now lets us see the stars in a way we never have before.  Need a little inspiration?  See the universe through the lens of the Hubble Telescope.
