Today I’m blogging about something different.
Here are the words to a song by Gordon Lightfoot, called Shellfish. Had a rather profound effect on me
Even if you’re sure, before you begin to cry.
Never rest until you find, what is best to be
Never rest until you find, what is best to be forgot.
Let it float off in the night, Beneath the moon,
so brightly shining down, on the steeples of the town.
You must not be downhearted, over things you left
undone. You got faith, to tell you all is well, and you
Know you’d best not stop. There’s still a ways to go.
Even if you’re sure, before you begin to sigh, Let
me show my way is best, on the wayward side
Let a planet be your guide. Above the fields, be
side the sleeping town, when the work is all shut
You will not be outsmarted, by that song you left
You got faith, to make your world take flight. There
is Still a ways to go ‘bout a thousand miles or so.
Even if you’re sure, before you begin to smile,
Let it happen on it’s own. Like a
Shellfish in the sea,
I’m as selfish as can be, when it comes down to
Me and alla my kin, all they wannta do is win.
You will not be deserted, by old friends you left
You got faith, to make you meet the cost, and you
Know you’d best not wait. He who hesitates is lost
So even if you’re sure,
It’s so easy to be, Shellfish in the sea.

Lovely lyrics. I always feel good when Iistening to a Lightfoot song. Great for inspiration. I don't have the Harmony album but it's on my to-be-bought list asap.
