Seasons of Love

Seasons of Love

6/13/2017

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

How do you measure, measure a year?

 

In daylights, in sunsets

In midnights, in cups of coffee

In inches, in miles

In laughter, in strife

 

In five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

How do you measure a year in the life

 

How about love?

How about love?

How about love?

Measure in love

Seasons of love

Seasons of love

 

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

Five hundred twenty-five thousand

Journeys to plan

Five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes

How do you measure the life

Of a woman or a man?

 

In truths that she learned

Or in times that he cried

In bridges he burned

Or the way that she died

 

It's time now to sing out

Tho' the story never ends

Let's celebrate

Remember a year in the life of friends

 

Remember the love

Remember the love

Remember the love

Measure in love

Measure, measure your life in love

 

Seasons of love

Seasons of love

I thank Mark C. for reminding me of the words to this great song from the musical, Rent. So, how do these "seasons" play out in our lives? Am I stressed and rushing and too in my own head to be kind, to offer a smile, to take the time to understand another? Or am I savoring the full moon, the green of early summer, the beauty of old friends and the joy of making new friends. It is easy to feel disconnected but - dare I say - equally easy to connect. Reach out!  Everybody wants to be seen and appreciated by another. Authentic Connections is all about Love - in all its forms. So, whether you are blissfully wrapped up in an idyllic romantic relationship or you are helping your neighbor fix a bike, that is love. Savor it! Share it!

With a tight hug!
