Adam Atom?

No, sorry gang – it’s The Old Silly, but I promise all you Adam Atom fans he’ll be back in his regular Monday spot next week. Today I’m asking y’all to cut me some bloggy slack, I’m busy all day preparing for a week of holiday travel. Gonna be heading out to The Big Apple to visit my son, drive him back here to Michigan for a good ol’ Wilson family reunion on Thanksgiving, and then … catching my breath and catching up on regular blogcasting. I do have posts scheduled to go up all week, so fear not … you will not be deprived of your daily dose of Free Spirit!

Today I thought I’d put up a special rendition of one of my all time favorite songs, performed by Lous Armstrong. Many of you, I’m sure, are familiar with it, but this clip is special in its visual accompaniment to the lyrics and tones. So, in the spirit of gearing up for this Thanksgiving, I would ask you to relax for the next two minutes, breathe deep, and meditate on all the beauty around us in this miraculous, marvelous creation.

Does our world have its faults? Are there problems, challenges facing us as a race of people and our environment as we move forward? Yes, and of course there are. But remember, we receive more of what we focus on and sincerely desire. Join me now in focusing on “What a Wonderful World” we have.

Blog dismissed, my friends. Oh – if you are a blogger that the Old Silly visits regularly, please understand over the next few days I am largely without internet access, travelling and all, but I will do my best to visit y’all as much as possible. Wifi cafe breaks, that sort of thing. And even if I don’t get a comment in every day, I am always with you in spirit. And again, there will be daily posts up here all week.

Have a great holiday week, see you here, there, and everywhere, and remember what a wonderful world we can continue to enjoy and make together with our thoughts and actions of love for each other.

    A great song and the photos were beautiful. The song is now stuck in my head and I’m sure I’ll be singing and humming it all day.

    Enjoy your break.
