Song 136 – What A Day

By May 17, 2018Songs

The music for this Song was not used as the music for a Psalm. There wasn’t a beach in Cedar City or Salt Lake, other than the beach at Rush Lake. The sand there is definitely not good beach sand. Obviously when I wrote this I wanted to get outside. Even if outside meant being in the streets. Someone was pouting, me or one of my few girlfriends (see Song 131 – How Do You Show a Girl). Obviously I like to hold hands (see Song 103 – I Wanna Hold Your Hand). I wanted to take a walk ( see Song 130 – Take a Walk). I am always being accused of being sad and down. Here I am attempting to cheer someone up, telling them “There is not need to be sad and down, no reason to frown, life is great, we can not hate, we need to be like the dove, and learn to love everyone.” Maybe the purpose of these songs is to remind me to be happy, to smile, and to be positive with everyone I interact with. When you spend most of your time in front of the computer thinking about and working on new things, it is easy to miss what is going on outside. Especially when one of those perfect Southern Utah days slips in, and I am so busy working at my computer I don’t even notice it. Oh well! I can always let my mind float back in time and space to 03 November 2009 when all 10 kids gave me a surprise 60th birthday party at 1307 Emerald Green in Houston. The photo to the left reminds me of the joy of that weekend. I remember Dr. Fred Hilterman telling me Melanie was just as tenacious as I was, when I worked for him at the University of Houston, when getting him to write one of the 60 summaries of what I have meant to others. What a day!
