Summertime Nostalgia And Thoughts
“Summertime and the livin’ s easy..” Janis Joplin was singing in 1969 and I can’t help but wonder what is happening today..August 14th 2014..is the living still easy?
Well, depending on what we want to see each time, I think living hasn’t been easy for lots of people around the world this period who are facing the cruel face of war, inhumanity and insanity.
Excuse my thoughtful style of writing today but being on a sofa stuck in front of my lap top far from a Caribbean looking beach that most of the people dream for their Summer holidays, I can’t help but thinking that we people tend to take things so easily for granted and without looking at what is happening around us.
Bringing into my mind a more nostalgic period of time when the life’s rhythms were slower and people were more grateful of what they had even if those were few, let me share the lyrics and video of this favorite summer song and wish you a very nice rest of Summer while promising more skincare blog sharings in Autumn.
” Summer time and the livin’s easy, fish are jumping and the cotton is high, oh your daddy’s rich and your mother is good looking. So, hush little baby don’t you cry! One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing, yeah.. you’ ll spread your wings and you”ll take to the sky but till that morning, there’s nothing that is going to harm you, baby”
