for Ozgecan Aslan and too many others to count





Will the circle be unbroken
By and by Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky Lord, in the sky.


original lyrics by Ada R. Habershon

music by Charles H. Gabriel






two things that still matter


innocence and sincerity


and always will






may the circle keep on growin'

take a new form every day

there's a new way, and it's comin'

by and by, lord, soon enough


and it's here, babes, yes it's here now

it's right before you

it's right before me

it's right here on this page


it's a new world

and it's here, babes, it is here, here and now

and it's time, boys, 

and it's time, girls, to sing together


sing together, not tomorrow

sing together, here and now

I've come back to read this text several times, to try to pinpoint why I like it so much, until I realized it is the

innocence and sincerity

It is really good to be unabashedly hopeful and optimistic once in a while. Much more helpful than tired old cynisism.
