Its-not-easy-bein-green-w-KermitHaving been Green my whole life, I know the wisdom of the song first sung by the great philosopher Kermit the Frog.

It’s not that easy bein’ green
Having to spend each day the
color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer
bein’ red or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that

“Bein’ Green” was written by Joe Raposo and was originally performed by Jim Henson as Kermit on both Sesame Street and The Muppet Show.

It’s not easy bein’ green
It seems you blend in with so
many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over ’cause you’re
Not standin’ out like flashy
sparkles on the water
Or stars in the sky

It has been covered by a number of performers such as Ray Charles. Van Morrison, and Frank Sinatra.

But green is the color of Spring
And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean
Or important like a mountain
Or tall like a tree

“Bein’ Green” was sung by Big Bird (Caroll Spinney) at the two memorial services for Jim Henson in 1990.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But why wonder, why wonder?
I am green and it’ll do fine
It’s beautiful
And I think it’s what I want to be

 

 

24-F by Beverly

This week at ABC Wednesday, F is our letter of focus.

F is for FAITH – something we all need in these uncertain times.

So many religions exist around the world and each has their own expressions of faith. What a wonderful world it would be if we could all have faith, let our actions show how we live our faith and that love would triumph over hate and evil.

Here is my journal page on some favourite faith quotes:

faith 001

There are so many quotes about faith.. Here are a few more:

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. Mother Teresa

Creativity is always a leap of faith. You’re faced with a blank page, blank easel, or an empty stage. Julia Cameron

He who has courage and faith will never perish in misery! Anne Frank

 

F is also for fear – and if we have faith, we can overcome our fears.

…Hi Everybody… and Goodmorning / -afternoon / – night

For 24-E …

The largest ape on our planet… the Eastern Gorilla.
A very impressive animal, not only due to his size.
In The Netherlands we have a couple of zoo’s who keep them… and thankfully that way this species can be saved from extinction and our childeren, and childerens childeren can be educated by the real animal, alive and kicking, instead of via an image in a historiebook.
It always saddens me that there still are lots of people who don’t give a ugly word about creatures other than themselves… as if we could ever survive if every other lifeform is gone forever…

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-wednes-day / – week!
