Three little birds, on my doorstep and visit

- This Bob Marley song is just about my favorite with its sweet lyrics. I find myself singing the refrain in my head when things don't seem to be going well: "Don't worry 'bout a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right."

- And I discovered the song after taking this photo in Greenwich Village last December.

- Learning that my preschool teacher niece is visiting the east coast this summer for the first time in five years. She started her own school called "Rising Song" - I'll bet she knows this song, too. :)

That video brings back good memories. I don't have any Bob Marley music in my collection, but my partner does. :)

Great advice in that song. And so true. We can always turn the worried thoughts into happy / grateful ones.

You are good with Gratitude. And Happy.

Cute video. That little girl is adorable,reminds me of Kalyani's daughter.

Lovely to be here.

Lovely you are.

Lovely to dream

My sons have lots of Marley. That's an uplifting and catchy tune. I like how one thing leads to another - the sign and then the song.

So glad you'll be able to see your niece!

Sara said...

WOW. I really liked that video and the song. The video was cool with the graphics. All blended perfectly with the song.

Thanks for sharing this. It made me smile and today was a good day for that:~)

It's a definite mood lifter, I think.

I was in New York in December and spotted the sign in front of a cafe. I loved it.

Blue Bunny -

Lucky you with all the orange snacks today!

Rising Song sounds like a perfect name for a school, and believe it or not, I posted that Bob Marley song and video (with that cute little chica) a while back on FB and everyone loved waking up to it. It's uplifting and fun, isn't it? :)

Hope you're having a happy Tuesday, amiguita!

Jacqueline said...

I've been having a trying time with Blogger again recently- was here yesterday without a successful comment below...

I remember the song well from a past job a decade ago with a radio station that played it every day-
Is your neice a music teacher? Good you get to visit with her again. I miss my neices in Maine n Florida.

I had have a happy Tuesday and hope you did, too. :)

I have that song loaded on my ipod and love it when it rolls around when I'm walking at the park.

Jacqueline -

Of course - and I will be delighted to visit your blog.

RK -

I loved that little street with its shops - I wish I'd looked at the name of the street so I could tell you.

Snaggle -

She is a teacher without a degree - she majored in fine art. She owns the preschool and teaches art, and works with another teacher for everything else.
