Listen to Your Sons!

Some Exotic Early Autumn Visitors to Our Back Yard!
Such a beautiful Wednesday in October,
made even better by my new lawn ornaments
and some entertaining input from my children.


Hump Day Advice from my older son Ben:

"Time is money. And money is power. And power corrupts.
So it's important that I waste a bunch of time today
to maintain my integrity.
Winning!"

Plus an inspiring song, contributed by my younger son Sam. I was listening to one of his old mix cds while exercising and came across this tune:

Sign of a Victory
(Official 2010 FIFA World Cup™ Anthem)


Sung by R. Kelly & the Soweto Spiritual Singers

I can see the colors of the rainbow
And I can feel the sun on my face
I see the light at the end of the tunnel
And I can feel heaven in its place

And that's the sign of a victory
That's the sign of a victory

I can feel the spirit of the nations
And I can feel my wings riding the winds, yeah
I see the finish line just up ahead now
And I can feel it rising deep within

And that's the sign of a victory
And that's the sign of a victory

Now I can see the distance of your journey
And how you fought with all your might
You open your eyes to global warming
And through it all, you sacrificed your life

That's the sign of a victory, hey
That's the sign of a victory

Oh, if we believe, we can achieve anything
Including the impossible, this I know
So let's lift up our heads, yeah, and raise the flag, yeah
And scream like you want to win, now let the games begin

That's the sign of a victory, yeah
That's the sign of a victory, yeah
That's the sign of a victory, oh
That's the sign of a victory, yeah

That's it, when you keep on fighting
After you lost your strength
That's the sign of a victory, yes, it is

When darkness is all around you
You still find your way
That's the sign of a victory
Oh, you got the victory, sing

Come on and sing
Lift up your voice and sing
Stand up, oh yeah, stand up
Common goal, sign of a victory

Oh, that's the sign of a victory


Music & lyrics by R. Kelly
