manifesto monday: gifts

orchard (Davis), originally uploaded by Ann Marie Whittaker.

one song loyally pops up in my head every november, without listening to it on any set of speakers. it just shows up. and it runs and runs through my mind during the holiday season. i remember hearing this song often growing up. i loved it then. and i love it even more now.

tis the gift to be simple, tis the gift to be free
tis the gift to come down where we ought to be
and when we find ourselves in the place just right
twill be in the valley of love and delight

when true simplicity is gained
to bow and to bend, we shan't be ashamed
to turn, turn will be our delight
till by turning, turning we come round right.

this, i believe.

Such a striking photo. It almost looks like a black and white drawing, even with the color. Beautiful!
