Today, in the town squares of all great cities

around this beautiful globe,

we will, by common consent,  remove divisive flags

hung by history’s tainted shreds of angry pride;

folding them away like old aunty’s table cloths.


And see draped instead, from mountain heights,

a more fantastic sight; our real heritage.

Reflective of all earth’s passion and intensity

absorbing in amazement all our pain,

this is our rainbow – and the music of a shared song.

    music of a shared song.. togetherness. A lovely theme to begin a new year.

      Visualisation works for me. The hardest part seems to be knowing what we want.

        yes agreed. And why doesn’t it get any easier the older we get? I thought the saying was wisdom comes with age?
