Just for one day, I will close my ears to the grumbling and the pessimism and believe with the hopeful innocence of a child that the world is about to get better, not because our new President will make it so, but because we will.
Just for one day, I'll close my eyes to the troubles that plague us, and think only about the power and the good that I've seen is possible when enough of us believe and put our hearts together and lend our hands to the work.
Just for one day, I will have this wish that many call naive but that I am yearning for with all my heart.
Steve at On the Slow Train has a beautiful post up about two train journeys that got me thinking about trains and now this song won't leave me. One version, from Yusaf Islam (Cat Stevens) at the 2006 Nobel Concert, and one from Cat Stevens in 1976.
