Lovely way to start the day

Do you realise that you have the most beautiful face?
Do you realise we're floating in space?
Do you realise that happiness makes you cry?
Do you realise that everyone you know someday will die?

So instead of saying all of your goodbyes,
let them know you realise that life goes fast.
It's hard to make the good things last.
You realise the sun doesn't go down,
it's just an illusion caused by the world spinning 'round.

Do you realise that you have the most beautiful face?
Do you realise?

Lovely morning - I walked to work after a long sleep in a cold house with a snuggly husband and a purring cat or two. Listened to the Flaming Lips on the way to work and just as I was crossing the bridge over the river the sun came out from behind a cloud and made the river shimmer like a zillion little points of light...and then the song above started to play...and I stopped for a bit and watched the pelicans and grinned like an idiot before walking on.
Lovely way to start your day, that.

You have pelicans in Saskatchewan?

Yup about 40 of them descend on the weir every spring and stay all summer. Must be lots of fish by the weir or something...
