Remember that lovely 1960’s song of longing to be in a better place? It came to mind when I was out for a walk today. A few details awry from the Mamas and Papas’ original. It was a spring day, not a winter’s day. All the trees weren’t in fact brown, they were green. True, the sky was grey and, as it happened the fields were blue. The beauty of the bluebells made the walk delightful. I was not exactly dreaming of California either.
I’m already in California, the idyl the song laments – the sunshine/ beach/ laid back life. It’s other poor saps who’re having a cold day somewhere else.
Nothing happens unless you make it happen. Vote for change and make the world a fairer place.
